Someone come with me. I want to go see the Saturday, October 9 shows. If you'd be interested in either, drop me a line. All tickets $18!
I will attend the anniversary party!
The library closes at five, so we can't go later, but the room is available earlier than our two o'clock start. Should the party start at noon?
Yes, noon is better!
No, three hours is enough time.
We can always decamp to a bar if we're so awesome we want to hang out more.
The people below offered to bring the food below. Please comment below to let us know exactly what you plan to bring, or that you will unfortunately not be attending after all. I will bring paper plates, plastic utensils, and a couple of two liters of generic soda, probably a cola and a cream soda.

I'm a fan of the cherry blossoms, so I wrote a post in my journal last year with quite a few links (mainly the history of the trees, an overview of the National Park Service information, maps, and Washington Post coverage). I updated those links today and made another post with some new links, including the Washington Post's audio tour and their latest list of non-touristy places to see the blossoms. Those places often have different bloom dates, so if you miss the trees at the Tidal Basin, you'll have a second chance.
If anybody's got recommendations for other things to include, let me know – I'd love to have them.
I'd rather meet...
7 PM Thursday, Feb 25th
3 PM Saturday, Feb 27th
I'm interested, but I can't make either of those.
I'd like to suggest starting with Air, by Geoff Ryman, because this will finally goad me into reading it. I hope to finalize what book and what time by next Sunday, so everyone who is interesed has time to read the book.
I would be interested in a book club.
When would you like to meet?
Thursday 7 PM
Saturday 1 PM
Saturday 5 PM
Other time I will mention in comments
Does Rockville work for you?
No, but somewhere else in the MD 'burbs would
No, but somewhere in DC would
Thanks for filling out the poll - I'm really excited about making this happen.
This is the small press/independent comics showcase on the East Coast, so it's not to be missed. There are hundreds of exhibitors this year -- there is something for everyone, whether you are interested in the stories or the medium of comics.
I went last year, and had a blast just looking at the exhibitors' booths. This year, I might go both days, and actually get to hear some of the talks. If anyone else is going and would like to meet up -- for lunch or otherwise, just let me know.
I don't have anything concrete in mind, so I'm very open to suggestions. Based on the people I know to invite right now, it would be a SPN-centric event, but multi-fandom would be excellent. If anybody's interested, please let me know!
Anyone have any suggestions for an appropriate venue?
Also, do we want to do it on April 30, May 1, or both?
Also, also, who wants to come?
