DC Area meet - Sun Oct 27, 9am @ Montgomery Mall

There are a number of local owners on the board now - I've had the pleasure of meeting a couple of you personally - Tom C, Cyrus (not sure of his board name) and of course the legendary RPiM5 (Dave).

Are you guys interested in picking a date this fall - has to be soon before the weather turns - for a meetup / photoshoot / lunch?

I was thinking we can start somewhere in the Montgomery Mall parking lot, drive to Alexandria harbor area via the GW Parkway with a pitstop at Gravelly point for pictures, and get lunch down there somewhere.

Update: we will meet at the same lot as the Bethesda C&C - by the corner bakery at Montgomery Mall I believe. Corner of Westlake Dr and Westlake Terrace - at 9am, on one of Sat or Sun this coming weekend.

If someone has a good camera and doesn't mind taking and sharing photos, that would be great. I'll be armed w the only camera I own anymore - my iPhone 5s.

Looking forward to it!

Nice! Let's call it for the third, then. Suggestions on lunch spots at the Alexandria harbor area? Ideally something casual where we can get good pizza, subs and maybe a couple beers. If anyone has a preference to step it up to something a little fine-dining-er I'm down with that as well.

First post updated with additional details.

Looking at the map, I think Chadwick's is a good target for lunch. Parking might be a pain, but there are a handful of options within a few blocks.

As usually happens when I try to make plans without consulting my wife, the previously suggested date of the 3rd is off limits for me. Apparently we have plans to go to my in-laws for lunch that day - I should have checked with my wife first but usually weekend mornings are mine. I'm also hosed for the 2nd - my son has a regatta that day with his crew team.

So - are you guys avail either of Oct 26 or 27th - this coming weekend? I believe 26th morning is the last Bethesda Cars & Coffee - so we can meet there, hang around a bit, and then head off for our drive/photoshoot/lunch. 27 works equally well for me as has been confirmed by my better half.

Very nice..

Gravelly point makes for a great location for a photoshoot - esp if we have a good number of M5s... Great opportunity for you guys to show off your photography skills.
