Washington, DC Meet-up Saturday August 23rd at 5:00 pm

MobileRead Washington, DC Area Meet-up
Saturday, August 23rd in Herndon, Virginia
Starting at 5:00 pm (17:00)
Euro Bistro, 314 Elden Street (corner of Elden and Herndon Parkway) 703-481-8158

See Nate’s fantastic collection of reading devices, meet old friends for the first time, enjoy great food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere at MobileRead’s first Meet-up in the Washington area.

Attendees may include the following:
  • alia
  • bkirchhoff
  • cassidym and friend
  • DragonRider and friend
  • Enola
  • Kosst Amojan
  • MMascaro
  • Nate the Great
  • rflagg
  • RWood and friend
  • Steve Jordan and friend
  • TheLongShot (?)
Plus possible special guest appearance by Bob Russell and two (2) friends

These are just the ones that I know about now. Some of them may be bringing their friends (for the sake of brevity, “friends” include wives, husbands, lovers, friends, people you met in the parking lot on the way in, etc. In my case, wife.) There will be space to accommodate all who do show up so don’t worry about bringing that “extra” guest, they are welcome so bring them.

Dress is casual (although one has indicated that they are coming by between a wedding and the reception and will be dressed a bit more formerly.)

There is currently no WiFi at the restaurant and I will see what I can do this week to add that if it is of interest to the attendees. PM me if you are interested in WiFi.

Any general questions, please post them here. Any specific questions please PM me.

I hope to see all of you there on Saturday.

b there

Neat, I'll try to be there. Would have been nice to have been closer to the metro so us Visually Impaired folks (well, me anyway) could have had an easier time of getting there, but I do see there is a Fairfax Connector going right there!

Will anyone per chance have an amazon Kindle with them? I've been dying to see one in action. I think it should be better than my Sony Reader since the print can go larger but it would be nice to be able to check one out.

Nate the Great has a kindle, as well as several million other devices (barely exagerrating). so it looks like you are in luck.

With Bob Russell confirming his and friends joining us, it looks like about 20 people. Sounds like a great evening. More are always welcome. See you there.

is it ok

Is it ok for some one who is kind of a lurker to show up? I mean I have chimed in now and then but I can't say I know anyone very well.

Of course. Lurkers are welcome. Some of us post more than others but it will be the first time any of us have met face-to-face.

Apart from the last Paris meet-ups, and the Edinburgh meet-up, that is.
But it is a first for America.

Quite true. I was thinking of the people attending. We have never met each other before. (Well, to be technical my wife and I have met each other before.)

The intent was to put their worries at ease as none of us had met each other before, while we may have posted on line and engaged in discussions in the forums, the MobileRead members at the meet-yp had not met face-to-face before.
