I make a motion to going back to a single long ass HH thread. The reason is some people don't check the board frequently enough (yes even with a month lead time) to find new threads. They can/do subscribe to the one thread and ill at least get an email.

Anyone want to second the motion?

Second. And may I offer a change of venue to something more westerly?

We have been through this one before. I'll host one on my deck once the weather gets warm, but we never got a strong response to the suggestion of a westerly location. It's perfectly fine for us to drive an hour to get there, but not visa versa for most

Yeah, I tried to lead the Jay's mutiny, but the plan was foiled. I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you pesky kids and that dog.

Sadly, Arlington seems to be pretty central for most. I think we need to find a "nicer" place with larger parking lot.

But I do second keeping one thread.

I know I havent been at many (actually only one) happy hour, but I do want to remind everyone that I am the GM of a restaurant in DC with a parking lot (its free too!). We have 33oz beers, 24 on tap and 24 in the bottle, and a whole shit load of food. I know some people may think it is fancy (and I guess compared to Jay's what isnt), but we are honestly pretty casual and have a fun, relaxing environment... come on... 33oz beers! I know it is in DC and isnt that convient for many, but it is not downtown or even near it and can be accessed pretty easily. And I can really accomidate us any day of the week, plus we are really kid friendly if we decide to do a 'family' day. Just wanted to put that option out there and to let everyone know it is always here and open for Rovers. And if anyone ever wants to come here, not for a group outing, just email me (anthonyp@chefgeoff.com) and I would be happy to welcome you! Thanks and I look forward to meeting those that I have not yet met.

All in favor: I! I can't believe I missed the Jan HH..... I'll try to make the Feb one and bring Pedro along! By then, he will have owned ~6-7 Rovers!

I think we have to take it more gradually and keep it inside the beltway two or three times, then move just outside the betway another 2-3 times then move to your westerly boonies-qualifying neighborhood for good!

The Sheet gas station sells booze and has a decent-size parking lot.

I'll underscore everything Anthony said above -- great food, great drink, lots of parking and (for being across the moat) easy to get to. Might be a good option for a rover brunch.

Vintage 51 in the shopping center by the Home Depot down the road from him. Or we could hit the place in DC.

One of the real hesiations that some of us had to move it out west was the issue of fighting rush hour out there.
