This unmoderated, unedited thread can be used by anyone and everyone who wants to get together for dinner, meet for a drink after work, rabblerouse, cavort and just enjoy the pleasures of each others company.

Feel free to post here as often as you'd like!

I have an irrepressible urge to eat some peanuts and a ballpark hot dog, washed down with a beer. Is anyone else interested in going to see the Nats on Monday or Tuesday?

Going to see the Nats on Monday or Tuesday isn't possible for me. HOWEVER, I learned something in the last few days that some of us might want to note: on September 11, the Nats will be playing at RFK and it is also the first home game for the Deadskins. There should be a lot of Nats tickets available. I told Craig that I wanted to go the Nats game that day, since avoiding football in most instances has become a goal of mine. Using the Metro should be an interesting proposition. (Note: I was since my youth a football fanatic. Moving here ruined that for me. Instead I discovered baseball, a much better alternative.)

Please keep me in mind, the next time somebody here wants to go.

DID ANYBODY SEE TODAY'S GAME???

GO NATS!!!!

Can't do it this week (just finished prepping the basement for paint, yay), but next week might work - and there are 5 home games next week, so it's wide open.

I calls 'em like I sees 'em. Plus, I'm not expecting Corduroy to be a pizza parlor either.

I should stick with all the dozen other great things I've had out that kitchen.

DID ANYBODY SEE TODAY'S GAME???

We went with friends... the weather was gorgeous, our seats okay (way out by the left field foul pole, but they cost us nothing, so no complaints), taking the metro was no problem at all, the game decent (both teams had fielding problems), and the food... :lol:

The hotdogs "were not ready" until sometime after the game started, the pizza was deemed surprisingly acceptable by Mr. mktye (although the crust was definitely a bit soggy ;) ) and the pretzels were a predictable waste of perfectly good flour. Other foods observed, but not eaten by our group were: nachos with shockingly (even by ballpark standards) neon-orange cheese; french fries (the spiced batter-dipped kind -- like curly fries, but these were not curly); chicken fingers which were apparently good enough that the gentleman in front of us was compelled to interrupt his singing during the 7th-inning stretch to take another bite; and that oh-so-strange pelleted ice-cream-like substance.

The biggest downside of the game was a PA system that was far too loud and relentless. It turned what should have been a relaxing Sunday afternoon into an assault on the eardrums and gave the impression that the announcer was afraid we would all get bored and leave if we were not "interacting" in some way every thirty seconds. Take earplugs, seriously.

mktye's remarks made me think of a couple of things (and, no, I still haven't figured out the quote business--I'll have to buy Rocks another drink and get him in a headlock, I think):

If any of you read Tom Boswell's weekly WP online baseball chat, you would know that a whole lot of folk are complaining about the PA system and the LOUDNESS and all the unnecessary music. He promises to talk to the powers-that-be about that.

AND NOW SOMETHING FOR ALL OF YOU: Years ago, I think we were at the 7-11 when somebody was "dressing" a Big Bite, Craig dubbed that stuff that you pump out on your dog or "nachos" as EVOTS--Extra Viscous Orange Topping Substance. By using this acronym, you can avoid misusing the prefectly good word, "Cheese."

You're welcome.

I'll vouch for the cotton candy, although they only had pink, no blue or purple. Light, fluffy, enough sugar to get you through all nine innings. The popcorn isn't half bad either, as long as you avoid the butter.

Anybody know what the rules for tailgating are? I bet we could put together one hell of a spread, if we can get a couple of spots in the lots of course.

Ooh, I forgot about the cotton candy -- it appeared they only had purple on Sunday... :lol:

I don't know about official rules, but our friends drove and said that they witnessed a lot of tail-gating where they parked (in one of the closer-in lots). They got there about an hour before the game and said there was plenty of parking available.

I could do something this evening, but I'm out Friday (turkey and mushroom hunting season). Vidalia has the Tuesday wiine tasting and I think there is an event at Mendocino. If Stephanie has to be at Komi at 7, Vidalia would be better than Mendocino. Or someplace else? I still can't figure out what is going on with the Bis discussion above.

I hate to see a man drink alone -- I'll try to make it too. I guess since I'm coming from a "remote part of the city" I should get off at Union Station?

Spot at the bar is a toss-up, but experiences teaches that something will come up eventually. I can possibly put a "reserved" sign on a table in the bar area until 6.30 for you lot. If outside is available, do you want it? There are, like, four tables in the patio and they tend to go quickly, but you never know.

Our inimitable hostess H@D, Nadya, graciously accomodated, Mr. Dente, Mr. Gastreaux, Hannah and myself at the Bistro Bis Bar (henceforth -- BBB) for an evening of stinky and other fine cheeses, small apps, and good wine -- although Mr. Dente at one point in the proceedings reverted to some form of reputedly Belgian Beer -- and gazing at the important politicos swirling about the place. Mr. Gastreaux made a point of making sure we knew what high company we were in.

Works for me. I'm in Crystal City now, so I can metro in whenever.

Tomorrow night, I'm pouring at a wine tasting event in Alexandria. It benefits the Foundation Fighting Blindness, so it's being billed as, you guessed it, a "Blind Tasting." Har.

Would love to grab a drink afterward if people are out that late.

Edit: Oh, and hi y'all!
