Sunday May 15th, 3:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Chipotle Mexican Grill
7600 Old Georgetown Road
Bethesda, MD 20814

Hello again! Our first meetup had a great turnout, and we're hoping to get even more this time.

Continue getting to know each other and new members, figuring out how to schedule future meetups and pick a more optimal location, and have fun, interesting conversations. Be on the lookout for interesting ideas during the week.

The Chipotle is near the Bethesda Metro station, just follow these directions. Go out of the station and walk down Old Georgetown Road. The Chipotle is next to the waterfall fountain, and outdoor seating area.

We will be sitting towards the back of the restaurant (basically, keep going in the direction you've been walking to get to the Chipotle), in the corner with a wraparound bench. Look for the person with curly red hair, or the LW sign.

I'd like to schedule future meetups for a shorter timespan, to increase the number of people who will be there when I'm there. Or to have a specified "core hours" section of the meetup.

I think the "core hours" idea is a good one, particularly if the group starts to develop some real organization.


Nearly everyone was at the first meetup for the full scheduled time period. I would guess at least 5-6 people to be there if you show up at any given time during the window, given that 13 were there for the most of it. We dispersed when it got under 5, about an hour after the scheduled end.

(I'm throwing out these nudges because I prefer not to have a shorter scheduled timespan, so that people pencil it in for more of their time, leading to an increase in quantity people*time instead of just people.)

Why is the karma dot for this post and one other green while the others are white?

I'm not sure, but I think it's because it's promoted.

So like, green dots are promoted posts, and white dots aren't.

And it looks like all meetups are in the discussion section now, too.

I don't think so. The Buenos Aires meetup, for instance, was promoted in the same post as this one, and it isn't green.

I'm at the Chipotle (got a ride a little early), and atucker just arrived. We're in the same spot as last time: all the way in the back, away from the entrance.

Edit: There seems to be a sports team that claimed the big table - we might be displaced briefly until they finish.

I intend to come

I'm going to try to make it.


Reminder, as requested by a few of the first meetings attendees:

Name tags.

I have some and will be bringing them (along with marker)

Thank you!

I will probably be able to get there around 5:45.

Argh! This is at the same time as the reddit board games meetup:
