K. proposes a D.C. summertime outdoor meetup! Details from her:
Noon on Saturday, August 16, 2014Dupont Circle Park (that’s the park with a big fountain inside the traffic circle)Let’s do a picnic-style meetup in the park! Bring something to sit on — I’ll have a picnic blanket, but it’s not super big — and optionally food to share or just for yourself. I’ll have bubble-blowing paraphernalia, and you’re welcome to bring your own stuff to do or share. To find us, look for the red balloon. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, including day-of guidance if the weather looks iffy, or if you just want to say you’re excited to come!Getting there: Besides being a stop on Metrorail’s red line and the site of two bikeshare stations, Dupont Circle is a bus stop for many lines including the Circulator and the Mount Pleasant Line. Car parking is not cheap or plentiful here, but there are some options at http://tinyurl.com/ojb5r3h.
I (the Captain) used to live at 1512 Corcoran Street, a short walk from there, if anyone is feeling curious and wants to tell me if the creepy church sign is still in the downstairs window of the creepy caretaker’s apartment.
