August 23rd, from 12:30 - 4:40 pm.
Union Station, DC
Food court. For our first Union Station meetup, JTinDC scouted out the area for us and identified a great location that has plenty of tables and doesn't get too crowded. It's roughly at the halfway point between each end of the food court, underneath the "up" escalator on the opposite side of the foot court from Flamers, and near the Aditi Indian Kitchen.
Since everyone likes to eat something different, we'll meet at the food court. We can pull tables together and move around to talk with each other. This is something I liked at last get together, we did a lot of switching around, which is better than being locked in to talk to the same person all afternoon, it's nice to be able to talk with more people.
This way, everyone can buy the food they want to buy, eat earlier or a little later. If you're on a tight budget or special diet, you can even bring your own meal.
The one drawback to the food court is that none of the places sell liquor, so if you want it, you'll have to discreetly bring your own (as one of our members did last time).
I am really looking forward to seeing the wonderful people that came to the MD/VA/DC meetup and hopefully meeting some new Kossacks.
If you can come, please respond in the comments. Also, if you have preferences about the times and the restaurants, talk about that in the comments.
One thing I'd like to ask is that if you think you might be coming, check your Kosmail so that we can exchange contact information.
