On a Whim... What are you up to...

I'm curious about you folks. And I wonder how many of you might be up for it. I also realize many of those in the area are in my hobby professionally and therefore probably would be at work.

But I work a mundane ol 9-5 job, and I think I'd be up for this tomorrow after work.

Let's have a little (it may be so little it may include a total of one) getogether tomorrow evening at any of the joints down around MCI Center/Penn Quarter/Chinatown. Maybe Matchbox? Zola? Cafe Atlantico? Zaytinya?

Just for an appetizer or two and a drink or three? Anyone up for it? If so, preferences for restaurant?

Al,

I'd go too, but I am stuck working out in the burbs of Reston. Hope to get to meet you (and other DC area people) at one of the events in the works.

And I hope someone responds to you.

Like tommy said.

At worst, Al, just go by yourself & imagine that tommy & I are with you.  Be sure to report back with at least a few snippets of conversation.

I'll be sure to do this. We'll be going to Matchbox, I decided. I predict you both will have enjoyed the wood fired pizza.

Stay tuned for a report tomorrow.

And as for you, DLewis, I'm going to tell our boss what you said about him. Probably even embellish it with a few choice words (e.g. bastard, idiot, ass-hat, etc.).

:wink: Well I certainly may be interested.  That is if "newbies" are allowed.

Come on by. I'll need help creating the imaginary dialogue from Tommy and MatthewB.

Cool. I plan on having a good time. :biggrin:

If we stay out late, might we stop by 18th Street Lounge? Or has that gone lame by now?

just stutter and mumble a lot, with occasional outburst of inappropriate behavior, and you'll have me down in no time. as for matthew, just be all smarmy and stuff. :wink:

dude, smarmy (dictionary definition: "unpleasantly and excessively suave or ingratiating in manner or speech") assumes that I'm already suave in some way.

I ain't suave. I'm a Midwest rube.

I think I went to the 18th Street Lounge a few years ago. I haven't been lately so I don't know what the deal is there anymore.

But don't worry, if we all hit it off, our imaginary group is sure to hit all the hot spots in town. I'll even pay for the cover charges and drinks for any imaginary person who comes along. Money is no object-- the finest champagne for everyone!

"just make sure some imaginary girls hit on me. just like up here in NJ."

Now that is just sad.

Nah. What would be really sad is if imaginary girls *didn't* hit on tommy. :sad:

You won't be staying at my place-- the 3 of us are going to get lucky with michelin-rated-chef nympho supermodels who are in town from Paris. We'll be sleeping in their private jet on our way to Nice for the weekend.
