Let’s make happy hour happen

Please, lovelies, use the comments to work out the details. Twitter isn’t conducive to event-planning.

You've been warned.

You've been warned.

What we’re got so far:

Location: Somewhere in DC (Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe has my vote. LOVE their pies.)

Date: Between Sept 18th and 20th. (Saturday night –the 19th– is best for me, because I have to fly in Friday night.)

Who: So far: @mycountryhome @alanna_shaikh @transitionland @ryanbriggs @chrisalbon @TalesFromthHood @endhumantraffic @willtownes  Others are certainly welcome to join in. Michael and Michelle, I’m looking at you. Amanda and Kate, you also.

  1. This was a good idea. I can do any day from the 18th to the 20th. Evenings are best.

    Kramerbooks works for me. It is central, has good food (great desert) and good drinks.

    • Karl, I think you gave Ryan his “just deserts”. I also would prefer Saturday (19th), because I have to drive up from Charlottesville. Any location is fine. Also, I’ll probably be couchsurfing that weekend! Looking forward to seeing everyone then.

  2. Very sad to say that I will most probably not be able to make it. … have to leave for the left coast late-ish PM on Friday, 18th.

    Someone please drink a gin & tonic and rant for a moment about voluntourism on my behalf.

  3. um hey, I’m commenting on this thread because you locked comments on the one I really want to comment on. I just wanted to echo everything you said about echoing everything Melissa McEwan said. It makes me sad how many of my friends related to that article when I shared it with them, and it makes me sad how many of my male acquaintances (including friends and family) are shocked to hear those things, whether in a blog or from me or whatever. “I’ve never seen anyone get harassed on the street” is a good one; so is “I’ve never heard a casual rape joke”. (Yes, you probably have; you just didn’t recognize it because you’re too accustomed.) Well, anyway…I just hope you don’t regret posting it like you said you did. You shouldn’t!
