We want you to enjoy the “new” H Street as part of an even larger crowd than the 50,000 who loved HStreetFestival2011. So, we’ve planned quite an all day party from noon to 7pm for young and old alike. In addition to all of the stuff that made last year’s festival great – like the live music on 5 stages, the artcars, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, the fashion shows, the patio cafes and the street parades, we’ve added even more entertainment and events to HStreetFestival2012’s 6 blocks of Urban Fun.

I need suggestions for an Open Beta Party. I'm thinking some place metro accessible, that either serves food at a counter or is willing to take a group with separate checks. Not too loud, not too dark, all ages access. It's better if they have electrical outlets, as I suspect that it will be a bit geeky and there may be a large number of laptops.

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?
