We will meet in the food court. JTinDC scouted out the area for us this morning (thanks, JT), and identified a good meeting place for us. It's roughly at the halfway point between each end of the food court, underneath the "up" escalator on the opposite side of the foot court from Flamers, and near the Aditi Indian Kitchen.
I plan to stay till 7:30pm, so if anyone can't get there by 4pm, we'll meet up later.
I've sent additional contact information out in a kosmail to everyone who expressed interest in coming. So check your kosmail again!
If you didn't get a kosmail and you think you might be coming, send me a kosmail.
Many of you are in either the Maryland Kos and/Virginia Kos groups. The trouble with sending kosmails to the groups is that you won't see that you have a message unless you specifically go into your group page. So please check your group pages before Saturday for updates.
Current list of who is coming on Saturday:
1. JamieG from Md
2. & husband
5. JanetT in Md
8. it really is that important
17. JG in MD
18. Chris Bowers

We meet at 4pm at the food court on the lower level, in the area near Aditi's Indian Kitchen and across from Flamer's.
Thanks to mimi, we have a map:
Look for the area between 117 and 116.
We can pull tables together and move around to talk with each other. This way, we'll be able to talk with more people.
Everyone can buy the food they want to buy, eat earlier or a little later. If you're on a tight budget or special diet, you can even bring your own meal.
Here is a directory of places to buy food at Union Station:
Then later on, for those of us who can stay longer, we can go to the Center Court Cafe and have coffee and/or dessert -- or dinner for those who are still hungry.
I'm going to wear my orange jacket vest. If a even a few of us are wearing orange, it will make it easier for others to find us. I realize that orange isn't everyone's color and you might not have it in your wardrobe. But if you do, consider wearing it that day.
Did I forget anything?
Yellowdog reminded us that there are weekend delays on Metro. Metro says to add 30 minutes to travel time. Yellowdog recommended adding 45 minutes.
