Yeah, I was in DC when it happened and I felt it. One of my coworkers said that his coke can fell off the desk....not sure if I believe THAT, but still...4.5 is pretty big for northern VA

I felt it in Richmond... I thought maybe someone was kicking my chair or I had a bad headache. But everyone else in the room felt the earthquake too. About five minutes later someone came back and said that there had been an earthquake.



I'm a little late posting this, sorry

Hi! I'm new to this board and to the DC area. My fiance and I just moved to Alexandria, VA and are looking to meet interesting people and couples.



I've joined a Cooking Light Supper Club in my area which has been fun and got me thinking, are their any veggie supper clubs in DC? If not, would anyone be interested in starting one?



I think it would be lots of fun and a great way for people to get together and enjoy wonderful food and company!



Peace, love & happiness,

Jenni

I think that's a fantastic idea. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to gauge my skills as a cook - I suspect I'm not very good - at least not where other mouths are concerned, but I've never cooked anything I haven't eaten

Hi Gentlemoose!

The idea isn't so much trying to cook fantastic food but enjoying the company of those around you... like a "Kum-buy-ya" sort of sort of togetherness thing.

well, it certainly seems like there is decent contingent in the DC-Baltimore corridor. Do we dare actually try to organize some sort of initial gathering??????

That would be good. Any suggestions? I'm new to the area and haven't been to any veggie restaurants.

Actually, I wouldn't mind going to Sunflower, in VA. And it's only a little ways out of DC (just off the Beltway) for us Marylanders.

Sunflower is an excellent choice. My only reservation is that we might lose some Baltimore people by choosing a location on the west side of the DC area. Perhaps a place like Vegetable Garden in Rockville or Udupi near Silver Spring might be slightly more centralized locations?



not trying to raise *too* much trouble here - we certainly can't go wrong with a Sunflower plan.

we could choose a DC/VA area, and if everyone decides to do it again, a Baltimore location. DC/Baltimore really isn't too far away from each other.



Or even a place like Laurel or Columbia, which are pretty close to each side.



Eitherway I'm there no matter which place is decided on.

Ok, Sunflower it is. Now for the challenge: setting a time and date. I'll go out on a limb and suggest Sunday February 15 at 4PM as a wild first guess. Feel free to suggest a totally different day/time as any of you wish.



To me, it makes sense to find a core group in this forum of people who can attend a particular proposed time, and once we have a set time, I'll post something in the MD and DC forums.

let's see - we've got 5. That's enough for a table, so this thing is a go as far as I'm concerned. I'll throw an announcement in the DC and MD forums this week. Woohoo!

They don't. Heh. I've definetely waited over an hour for a table. I guess getting there at four (before the dinner rush) is a good idea!

I would go but it's kinda far from Richmond... (and I'm not old enough to drive!) Sounds like fun though!
