    Boegiboe and I are in for all the events. We will have our little one stay with grandma for the weekend.

    We will also have at least two, maybe three bedrooms we can offer to people who are coming up for the event. Possibly four, depending on how friendly you are willing to be with cats.

    We are very happy to venture out into the city. As parents of a young child, we hardly ever get into town anymore, so it will be great to have that chance again. No dietary problems from us, as long as you don’t book an all-cheese restaurant.Report

  2. I can be counted in for all Saturday afternoon and evening events. There is suddenly also a strong likelihood I’ll be in town on Friday as well. I’m trying to figure out if I’ll be staying with friends in NoVa, and whether the kid and/or wife will be in tow (if the kid is in tow, my assumption is that she wouldn’t be going to dinner).Report

    We’re in. Just gotta figure out if we will be staying at the hotel or commuting. And what to do about the little one.Report

    I’d also like to point out that Great Falls, in Northern VA, is close by, so folks wanting to get out and see the Potomac falling over some rocks, and or hiking, might enjoy that.Report

    Since I live here, I’m in as well – if commenters are welcome. I can easily be persuaded to go see a Nationals game, and if anyone wants an ocean sciences guy to walk with them through the Ocean Hall at the Smithsonian I can probably do that too.

    As to Saturday night drinking – there are lots of up and coming neighborhoods in the DC area that aren’t Adams Morgan . . . The U Street corridor (which intersects Adams Morgan) has some good drinkeries, as does the Penn Quarter. There might be an untapped gem in Georgetown, but honestly I haven’t been there in years.

    Slightly farther out in Hyattsville (MD), there’s a brew pub called Franklin’s that does really well. There’s also Scion, McGinty’s and 8401 Kitchen Bar in Silver Spring (MD); Ballston has some good spots on the Virginia side. All are cab accessible from a Metro StationReport
