Drinks in DC

Update: This Meet-up will be in the bar at the Omni-Shoreham Hotel at 10:30PM. Please join us if you can.

Just a very quick message to all Ricochet members who are here in DC at the NRI event — or who may be in the area doing more useful things with their weekends:

After the late-night event tonight, which should end around 10:30PM, let’s all meet for a drink, shall we?  At the Omni Shoreham Hotel?

I just arrived about 10 minutes ago.  I’m sitting here at the “media table” using Blue Yeti’s laptop, so I have zero idea where to meet, but I know we’ll figure it out.  We’re Ricochet.  That’s what we do.

See you tonight…

    Not to alarm you, but the hotel has dispatched room service to me 3,000 miles away and I told them to charge it to Mr. Underhill’s account. The hotel front desk said they don’t have a Mr. Underhill. I said charge it to Mr. Long’s account instead; he produces my hit tv show.

    I hope you don’t mind.

  2. Sisyphus

    Mrs. Sisyphus and I will be there with bells on.

  3. Fricosis Guy

    I’ve been inspired to ditch the sales weasels — in Orlando many miles away from DC — and stage a mini-meetup with a friend of mine. Who is a Ricochetti deadbeat no more via a gift subscription, BTW.

    Edited to identify my location.

  4. Your membership dollars at work.

    I’ll have a bloody mary, a steak sandwich…and a steak sandwich.

    I hope that you all have a fabulous time–now, that I’m a meet-up veteran, I know you will.   I will keep my, apparently flu-shot resistant, germs at home, and have a drink for me!

  8. Sheila S.

    I am so near and yet so far down here in Southern Maryland!  Wish I could be there more than just in spirit.  Someone please have a drink for me.

  9. Layla

    Wish I could join you all, but as Daddy’s out of town I’ve got Mommy duty tonight. And I suppose that at this time of life, DC is a world away from me out here in Fauquier County.

    Alternatively, Rob, if you’re hankerin’ for a tour of the Manassas Battlefield Park before you leave town, I’d be honored. :)

    Y’all have fun and stay safe now, hear?

  10. Reckless Endangerment

    My birthday’s tomorrow so this is an early present! Looking forward to it

  11. We’ll be in the bar at Omni Shoreham Hotel, not the restaurant.  Please meet us there. We’ll be bringing some special guests as well.

    Immediately I considered what flights were available from KC to Reagan. 

    Expedia told me to make dinner. Have a great meetup – yo Sisyphus !!

    I can’t believe that Mollie stays up that late or can find a conservative babysitter ( although I bet Jamie Gorelick owns a service ).

  13. iWc

    Oh, man! I would *love* to come. And I am only an hour away…

    alas.

  14. KayBee

    Wish I could, but 10:30 is waaaaaaay past my bedtime! Anyway, I hardly venture from Loudoun County to DC in the daytime, much less at night.

    But if Mark Steyn is one of those special guests, I’ll be sad and envious. Have  a great time!

    As far as I know, it is not Larry Bud Melman.

  16. Chris Campion

    Just bring the laptop, plunk it on the bar, and leave the camera and mic on.  Should be revealing.

  17. doc molloy

    Just having a shot of Ardbeg for my 60th.. Cheers.. Don’t let the Corryvreckan whirlpool suck you down.. Have fun.

  18. Whiskey Sam

    You have no idea how tempting it is to make the three hour drive up there right now.

  19. Despair Troll

    Will there be parking?

    You *so* don’t know me. I’ll be there. Alas, Mr. Hemingway is under the weather so he won’t be joining me. Trying to recruit the neighborhood Ricochetti to accompany me on the drive …
