DC SPRING MEETUP - Last chance for Opinions!

I'm leaning towards Yards Park, guys. As much as I'm sure y'all would love my roofdeck, I'm more than a little weird about having 'my space', my apartment is TINY, and after recent events inviting even a bunch of cool semi-internet-strangers to invade my space is not sounding appealing. Also, I have to take it to Bingo,Carlos, and she would be sad if you guys hampered that.

SO if you have some deep moral objection to having a picnic on blankets at Yards Park, please let me know in the comments. If you have an objection but aren't coming, consider not voicing it - not that I don't love all of your opinions, but it's just not terribly useful, y'know? If this location makes you leap for joy, leave me a happy gif, because I'm having a bad day and could use gif-presents :)

DC Spring Meetup!

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
