Thanksgiving dinner table, New Orleans. First Thanksgiving after Hurricane Katrina includes
Liz Dexic has offered to host a meetup/potluck in Herndon, Virginia this Sunday. One of our members, Gordon20024 pointed out to me and Liz that it's going to be hard enough for people coming on the metro to get themselves there without worrying about bringing a dish and I totally agree, if it's going to be problem to bring something, don't worry, we just want you there! I'm bringing three dishes and there will be plenty to eat.  Our last two meetups had good turnouts and great conversation.  I'm sure this one will be great also.

Date/Time: January 27th, from noon to 5pm.
Liz's home is metro accessible, so if you let her know where you're coming from, she'll make sure you make the right connections.

There's plenty of parking in the neighborhood subdivision (house is on a corner), a couple of levels where conversation groups may sit and chat while eating.

The location address and contact information will be sent to you via Kosmail. If you're interested in coming, send a kosmail to me or to Liz and we'll get back to you with the address and directions, and information on how to get there from the metro if you're coming that way.

The location is also near the Monroe Park & Ride and you can take the 950 Weekend bus from West Falls Church, give a call once you're on your way, and someone will come get you if you're a Metro rider.

If you're attending and can bring something, we'll keep track and update the event info as it develops.

Any help getting the word out about this event would be appreciated.

As long as I have space left in this diary below the orange squiggle, I thought it would be useful to propose some topics we might discuss with each other, and some ideas for how our group can fix Virginia.

I'm going to put a few in the poll below, but please, if there are others you're particularly interested in, please post about them in the comments.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
