The following is a public service announcement for Hit & Run readers planning to get together next Friday (Oct. 14) in DC at 7PM:
I finally figured out where we can meet, thanks to help from Sandy. Ireland's Four Courts is a traditional Irish pub in the Arlington Courthouse area. Here is a link to to their website, which will give you all the information you need about the place, including directions: http://www.irelandsfourcourts.com/ If can't access their website or need help with directions, I can send them to you via email if neccessary. The pub seems to be easily accessible from the Metro Orange line (Courthouse Stop, towards Vienna). They serve food in addition to alcohol, in case you want to have dinner there. I think there is a chance that there will be live music, too, although I'm not sure about that. I will reserve some tables that should accommodate 10-12 people, in case any of you want to bring a friend or spouse (or whoever you want to bring). I wasn't sure if any of you are smokers, so I just erred on the Libertarian side and put us in the smoking section. If this is a big problem for anyone, let me know. Also, I moved the gathering later to *7pm* so that everyone can relax or at least stop home after work before heading to the pub. I will try to be there a little before 7 in case any of you arrive early. I put the reservations under "Patricia" (my real name). If anyone has questions or if I left out important details, please contact me. Hopefully, I'll see some of you next Friday at 7!
