A date has officially been decided!
We will be holding the meetup on Saturday, June 7th.
Next up: where?
The options that I've been able to come up with are as follows
- Rent a picnic area at Hains Point (depending on attendance, I'd ask everyone to bring some money to cover the cost, it'd be no more than about $10 per person). This is the least accessible, but would provide us with the most space and a for-sure picnic area. I'm happy to pay those with cars and who are willing to shuttle people in baked goods and love.
- Picnic at The Yards! This is out by Navy Yard, and they've recently done a lot of work to make it a really beautiful spot. Downside: we'd basically just be spread out on blankets wherever we find room. Honestly, this is okay with me. Upside: it's about two blocks from the Navy Yard metro station.
- Picnic on my roofdeck! I'd have to get permission from my building, but I don't think it'd be that hard. I'm on the red line, so pretty easily accessible, and the deck is lovely. No grilling or glass/ceramic, but that's fine.
Please let me know what you think! If I haven't really heard any opinions by Monday, I'll just make an executive decision and get the ball rolling. If you have any questions, or want to talk to me 'off-line', please email me at jessphilopater at gmail dot com
