Second 2013 DC Write-In
Adventure

I sadly missed the inaugural write-in on account of moving, so I'd like to propose a second DC Write-In for the evening of Thursday, November 7. Teaism Penn Quarter worked well last year, so I'd suggest going with that again. I could be there between 7 and 10 p.m. Anyone up for joining me?

Inaugural write-in

Hey, Yuletiders! I am planning to host a Yuletide kick-off/general fannish gathering next Sunday, the 3rd, from noon until whenever people feel like heading home. Anyone interested in attending, please get in touch for the address and to arrange a Metro pickup if you don't drive-- I am within two miles of both Red and Green Line stations, and happy to pick up/dropp off from either. Email is easiest-- hollimichele at gmail dot com.

Post-Reveal Yuletide DC Party Reminder

Just a reminder that we'll be holding a post-reveal party tomorrow, Tuesday the 1nd, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at queenbookwench's house. If you're interested in coming and don't yet have the address, please comment here or on the previous post and someone will PM you. (Sorry for the rigamarole; just seems like a bad idea to post home addresses in the open.)

Post-Reveal Yuletide DC Party

We had a post-reveal party last year and it seemed to go pretty well, so I figured we'd give it another shot. queenbookwench has kindly agreed to host again at her house in Shaw, an easy walk from Mt. Vernon Square or Shaw metro. Street parking is also available.

So! Anyone writing, reading, or generally involved in Yuletide is cheerfully invited to a post-reveal party from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 1. Come talk about your favorite fics, squee about your gifts, or let loose about the process of writing your own story. Or just bring your laptop and read more stories.

Please do bring some snacks or drinks to share if you can. If people get hungry beyond that, pizza or Chinese are a short phone call away.

If you're interested in coming, please comment here and one of us will PM you the exact address. (Or e-mail it if you'd rather, I suppose.)

Third DC Yuletide Write-In

Continuing the Friday trend, unless someone wants to propose something else:

Third Yuletide 2012 DC Write-in
Friday, December 14, 6-9 p.m.
Teaism Penn Quarter (400 8th Street NW, Washington DC)

If people would rather do a weekend daytime meetup, what days would work best?

Second DC Yuletide Write-In?

It sounded last time around like Friday was generally a good day for people, so I'd like to propose:

Second Yuletide 2012 DC Write-in
Friday, November 30, 6-9 p.m.
Teaism Penn Quarter (400 8th Street NW, Washington DC)

Does that work for others, or should we look at other dates?

Inaugural Yuletide 2012 DC Write-in

From the comments on the last post, it looks like more people are free on November 9 than November 12, so!

Inaugural Yuletide 2012 DC Write-in
Friday, November 9, 6-9 p.m.
Teaism Penn Quarter (400 8th Street Northwest, Washington DC)
I will be downstairs, with a sign.

Note that the lower level of this venue is not wheelchair accessible. If this is going to be a problem for anyone, please let me know and we can move upstairs (though there's less space there) and consider other venues for the future.

holli also noted that she's hosting NaNo write-ins that Yuletiders are welcome to drop in on "at the Cherry Hill Road Starbucks in College Park on Tuesdays from 11-3, and at Takoma Bistro in Takoma Park on Thursdays, also 11-3."

Anyone want to propose dates for a second meet-up? gramarye1971 suggested Thursday (15th) or Friday (16th) evenings from 6 PM to 9 PM. And I would suggest the Thursday (29th) or Friday (30th) of the week after Thanksgiving might work as well.

First write-in of 2012?

Flailing, frantically reviewing canon, outlining, or writing? Wherever you are in the Yuletide process, would you like some company while you do it? We managed several well-attended write-ins in DC last year, so I thought I'd try it again.

Two possible dates, if anyone is interested:
Friday, November 9, 6-9 p.m.
Monday, November 12, 1-4 p.m. (Veteran's Day Observed)

(Last year Teaism Penn Quarter seemed to work out best, location-wise, but I'm open to suggestions for other spots.)

If you're interested but the dates don't work for you, go ahead and propose others! I'm sure we'll hold more than one write-in by the time Yuletide is through.

Party!

I'm still basking in the warm glow of a party successfully hosted!

Thanks everyone for coming and especially ambyr for handling the Posting of Important Info and the Contacting of People.

See y'all next Yuletide, if not before!
