Just in case you haven't heard or just are learning about the event, we'd really like for you to come and share some comestibles and libations in a relaxed setting with some great conversation. Time is from Noon - 5 pm, and if we're still talking, fell free to just hang out for a while. More below the Fleur de Kos.
I have to admit the pooties and I could really use the opportunity to meet some friendly faces in the area. Prevailing upon JamieG from Md, who's already held two meet-ups this past fall, has given me the opportunity to bring like-minded folk together.
As mentioned in previous diaries, having you here is vastly more important, if you want to bring something, it's very welcome. A few of us in the various comments have mentioned our youth and the community, church, and family suppers of yore, and it seems that that type of occasion might be a missed, or as Gordon20024 calls it "more of a bring it if you can otherwise don't worry about it motif." Heck, we just wanna meet you! And so does, Max!
The location is accessible via Metro at West Falls Church then taking the 950 Weekend bus to the Monroe Park and Ride (which is a very short ride to the house). We're a stone's throw from Dulles International, just south of the Dulles Toll Road and west of the Fairfax County Parkway. Call that you're on the bus, and I'll be there to bring you back to the house.
I forgot to add, if you have any food sensitivities or dietary restrictions please drop me a message via kosmail, please.
