Hi there! To all those who have RSVPd.... The first DC PF meeting is next Sunday, July 16th at the Clyde's Restaurant in Chevy Chase, MD. I made a reservation for us at 1:45pm just to give people some time to find it. Here are some directions, according to their site... www.clydes.com 5441 Wisconsin Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD 20815 Phone (301) 951-9600 From DC: Go North on Wisconsin Avenue. Cross Western Avenue, pass the Friendship Heights Metro Station and make a right into the Chevy Chase Center parking lot. From VA: Take Interstate 495 (Capital Beltway) over the American Legion Bridge. Take the River Road exit (Route 190) East toward the District of Columbia. Continue on River Road approximately 4 miles until the Willard Avenue traffic light. Take a left on Willard Avenue and follow it around a bend to the second traffic light (Wisconsin Avenue). Take a left onto Wisconsin Avenue and make and immediate right into the Chevy Chase Center. From MD: (Oddly enough, there are no directions from MD on their site, so this is my best estimation...hehe). Take the Beltway and exit at the Wisconsin Avenue exit (Route 355 I believe) towards Bethesda. Follow Wisconsin Avenue for maybe 4 or 5 miles (through downtown Bethesda). You'll eventually see a free standing Saks and drive past it...the next shopping center will be where Clyde's is. METRO: Take Western Avenue exit of the Metro tunnel. At the top of the escalator, take the tunnel to Western Avenue/Military Road. Take escalator and cross Wisconsin Circle. Clyde's is located on the other side of Sun Trust Bank. I still haven't decided what I am wearing, but once I do, I'll post pics (how geeky) so some of you can recognize me. Can't wait !!
