Update: Black Squirrel owner Amy Bowman is all kinds of space awesome.
Having seen this post, she shot me an email, offering us their party room and asking me to give a call – which I did. It seems like the party room is a little too big, quiet and away from the jazziness of the rest of the Squirrel for our group, so instead they’re going to put together some tables and save them for us in the tap room.
And just like that, the Black Squirrel just became my favorite place in Washington DC.
So for those of you in the DC area, it looks like we’ll be getting together this Friday from 6:30 to much later at the Black Squirrel in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.
If you have ever dreamed of getting together and sharing drinks with League contributors and readers in a bar named for vermin (and really, who hasn’t?), this is your golden opportunity.
To quote my own bad self from last week, anyone and everyone is welcome – whether you are a contributor, a long time commenter, a regular reader who has never bothered commenting, or just someone that stumbled onto this blog today and is very, very thirsty.
It looks like we might have a nice turnout, with about a dozen contributors and readers already confirmed. We’ll kick things off around 6:30, but clearly this is not a “you need to be punctual!” kind of event.
If you want more information, or want to RSVP, feel free to do so in the comments section, or email me at email@example.com. I’ll look to make a group email list of those that tell me they are or might be coming, so that if anything changes or we migrate to new watering holes everyone can be kept in the loop. So if for whatever reason you want your email address kept private, let me know and I will blind-copy you.
The Black Squirrel is at 2427 18th Street NW.
Hope to see you there!
