    skittle, getting a bus isn't a problem. there's a few different companies that do DC to NYC.

    BUT, none of them allow dogs. I can take a bus from my house to NYC that allows a dog... but them I'm stuck. I check a bunch of different bus companies and even the trains... but no go.

    So I can go hang out... but I will be dogless. :(

    I totally want to do this. Pat Troy's Ireland's Own Restaurant and Pub of Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia (Link shamelessly stolen from Cali.)

    Lets have a meet-up on a Thursday or a Friday this month. They are dog-friendly and accept reservations.

    Cali, Lilavati, Amber, Cristy, JacksonsMom. . . you all are very close, how does this sound? For those farther out, you're invited, although it's pretty short notice. :( December's gonna be too cold for it though.

    Okay, vote for dates:

    Thursday, November 11
    Friday, November 12
    Thursday, November 18
    Friday, November 19

    The 25th is Thanksgiving, so those are pretty much our only chances.

    I can't do the 12th, I have class :( But any other day is good. I'm not sure how the patio is in the winter (if they have lights/heat lamps or not), as I've only been in the summer. They even have a doggy menu, guys! You can order beef or lamb stew, and it comes with a milk bone :)

    The pub sounds good. Just let me know what date you all decide on. I don't have anything planned for any of those dates.

    It would be cool if you and I could carpool in your vehicle Nolu, I hit a rock and besides the fact that my bumper is slightly broken, I think I did some damage to the undercarriage. It drives ok, but it doesn't feel "right", so I don't really want to take it on 495 right now. :(

    That would be fun! I can't say for sure yet, as my car situation is up and down. I have a rental right now, but this would be really fun!

    I wish there was someone closer to my area I could car pool with.

    If you don't plan on bringing Jackson, you could always metro to Vienna and Nolu and I could pick you up on the way (to get to 495 we would pass the exit to Vienna metro). If its ok with Nolu, I mean. :p

    Or just metro to King Street, then it's practically walking distance to the restaurant. :)

    That's a really good idea. I didn't know there was a metro stop near the restaurant, my knowledge of the metro is a little limited. :)

    For me Friday is definately better than Thursday. But I'll come if I can; unfortunately, work is never predictable and we are working on a brief. But i'll do what I can :)

    And thanks to Nolu for pointing out the thread.

    Hopefully I'll be able to make it to another one, but I don't think I can do it during the school year. Weekdays and weekends are usually packed. Maybe during the summer!

    I'm busy on the 12th as well and since Lilavati can't do Thursdays, I think we should do the 19th. Sounds good to everyone? I'll be bringing Middie. And Cristy. And we can pick you up if you can't do the metro, Jackson'sMom. :) Amber - you should still try to come! We'd love to meet you.

    What time works for everyone? Happy hour is 5-7 I think...

    I should be able to do that . . . later is better. Depending on when, I will either go home and fetch Sarama and drive over or just jump of the Metro on the way home from work.

    Edit: the 19th should be better too . . . this antitrust brief should be off my desk by then

    How about 6:30 till whenever we all decide to leave, and remember to dress WARMLY - coat, hat, gloves, scarf, etc just in case. If we're too warm we can always dump extra layers in a chair or bag, but if we're cold we'll be miserable. Middie will have his coat and I'll bring a blanket just in case for that reason, since I don't know what their patio conditions are like. I'm hoping for a balmy November day, but you never know!

    I did, and it is. I specifically asked about reservations for November for a group of people and dogs (which is fine) and told them I'd call back as soon as I had the date. :) That was why I checked here for a date that works. On my next call I'll be asking about heating and such - are there any other questions I need to ask so we don't all have to call?

    Okay, since no one has really complained about the date, this shall be our semi-official date. Whoever shows, shows, and I really hope everyone can make it but I realize that's an unrealistic expectation, lol.
