Is there any one interested in a get together of WITP players in the DC Metro area? I'm thinking of some fairly central location that serves good beer? Any intrest? Any suggestions? I'm aware of at least 2 Falls Church residents, 1 Alexandria and one southern Maryland. I'm sure there are more. Don't be shy, here's an opportunity to meet your brethern!

Be afraid he is one of those internet pervs that your mom warned you about. hanging out on message boards and luring unsuspecting witp players to their doom.

btw turn?

You should already have it. Yeah, I'm being called "unreliable" or "unstable" by a guy whose handle is "BOBOGOESBOOM". OK .

Hello, Count me in. I have some questions and game play to go over with you all. I should post them on this forum, but I am to embarrassed. Then everyone will know how bad I am getting my butt kicked! May I offer some suggestions.

Crapital City Brewing. Arlington.
Murphy's Grand Irish Pub. Alexandria, King street.
Rock Bottom Brewing. Arlington.
Gordon Biersch. Tyson's Corner.
Ireland's Four Provinces. Falls Church.

But hey! I will go anywhere that sells a cold one. King st is good, you can just hop on the metro, no drunk driving.

I'm familar with all of them (But Crapital brewing worries me....I take it you don't like it there?). May I also suggest that if we have Maryland Brethern, maybe RFD next to gallery place? Any place that has litterly hundreds of beers has to be a good place). Should we try to do it on a weekend? Maybe saturday afternoon? That means no fighting for tables , as you would have to in the evening. And I really like the Metro idea.

My Bad, Crapital City just a nick name between friends. It has some very good dark beers. Sat afternoon is a good time.

PS. Should we invite Terminus? Maybe he will fly over. We can buy him one to many, then he might divulge AE release date?

Be a lot cheaper (since he is on this side of the Atlantic) to liquor up Joe Wilkerson...

(plus, he is sort of the heart of the project, so you might get more accurate info...)

My feelings is that we should try to get as many WITP brethren as possible from as far away as possible. Joe ,Kristian, and of course you Robert , would all be VERY welcome!  I'd particularly like to see some of the Euro's show, and maybe we can kill this evil nonsense about Americans not having ANY good beer!

Hmm, with enough advance warning I could hop a plane from Memphis. I have a cousin of mine that lives in Arlington that I would like to see. I could kill two birds with one stone.

How about "Derrick, the art-full dodger", as your WITP forces always manage to dodge around the traps I set for you?

So, Bobo, are you coming up for the summit?

I'd strongly recommend against laptops and note books. Beer and electronics and beer and books are generally not a good combination! My rule is , it won't survive a beer splash, I won't bring it. And I definately won't bring my wall sized display planning map!

Shoot, I misread the title of this thread.  I thought it was "Army of Northern Virginia WitP summit." Cool, thinks I, perhaps Jubal Early, A.P. Hill, and Porter Alexander are gonna be there.

Well they are certainly invited, but I wouldn't hold my breath.....Nor the big man himself, even though he was raised in Alexandria and married a girl from Arlington.

OK, So this coming Saturday, 2pm at the Navy Memorial , standing on the map at Hawaii. I'll be wearing a VP-68 Navy ball cap. I'm 6'3" , heavyset, and will wear a light green shirt and jeans. And I will NOT be carrying a copy of "Pride & Predudice" , as my wife suggested (Damned chick flick!) nor will I be holding a rose between my teeth. And no , I will NOT be holding a Japanese tourist hostage.

Other comments , or suggestions are welcome as always......but if you can come, if for no other reason than curiosity.

Drat. I was in the area 2 weeks ago. I doubt the wife will let me out of state.

Spy Museaum was cool though.

Care to meet at the BB New Jersey?
