    What’s the deal on those of us who are under 21, but would love to attend?

    Awww, I wanna go! But alas, I don’t live in NYC. Smashpatriarchy6, if you live in DC you can come to my place and I’ll give you alcohol (if you want it).

    I wonder how many people live in the DC area… maybe we could all get together too :)

    That would be a Festivus miracle, Faerylore!

    Hmn.
    I’m thinking we should organize this into chapters and do something cross-country. Any Kingstonians? Yes? No? If not I shall have a one-woman feministing party. It’ll be great.

    Oh man, Jen and I are totally on board with a simultaneous DC party. But we are busy/lazy and don’t want to organize it.
    Maybe we should just pick a DC bar and all show up on the 19th. Care to nominate a bar, Sarah or Faery?

    It would be most excellent.
    Perhaps we should shop the idea around a bit. As much as I would love to, I don’t think I’d be able to go to NYC…

    I love that place!
    If I’m not working I’ll be there.

    I like that idea Ann, only I have to admit that I don’t know the bars in DC very well, haven’t been here that long. Sarah?

    I’m guessing we don’t have enough Feministers in the Baton Rouge area to throw it down…. Hey what about DrkEyedCajun? Where is she from?

    Oh, I’m in for the DC bar night!!
    What are DC people’s bar tastes? And neighbourhood preference? ‘Cause I know me some bars here.

    I am absolutey trashed right now, so maybe it’s inappropriate to ask, but if there are any feministing posters in the Indianapolis area, I will absolutely host a Holiday Happy Hour event! I’m getting ready to move (as many of you know) to Arizona, so it would be in conjunction with going away parties, but I would love some feminist holiday party time in conjunction with that.

    smashpatriarchy6, I’ll look into it for you..shoot Vanessa or I an email before the date and we’ll let you know the deal. i’m sure we can work something out. hope to see lots of ny’ers there!!

  15. Posted November 30, 2007 at 12:32 am | Permalink

    I will mail $7.50 to you. Please send two Absolut Vanilla and Cokes via express mail, if possible.

    Indiana here, too. Although, I’m a bit south of Indy (98 miles or so).
    Congrats on your move, assuming, of course, you are excited about it. It’s a little sad to hear a fellow Hoosier feminist is leaving our lovely state (it would be more lovely if we could ditch Mitch!), there doesn’t seem to be many of us, at least where I’m located.

  17. Posted November 30, 2007 at 1:27 am | Permalink

    Thanks Shelby! I am absolutely excited about the move. I’ve been doing the long distance thing with Mr. KMP for a year now, and am totally ready for being in the same city/apartment and some other Feministing-ies (I always want to say Busties b/c I started out posting on the Bust Lounge) want to migrate north, I seriously am up for hosting a feminist friendly party. Ninety-eight miles south, huh? That’s about an hour and a half away!

    1 1/2 hours is about right. I’m a bit south of Terre Haute. Don’t mind the drive though, my father-in-law lives in Indy and it has a Tall Girl shop (pants that fit, yay!). Unfortunately, the 19th is a weeknight and I’ll have to work bright and frackin early the next morn.

    If there are people in the DC area who want to get together for feminist drinks, I am definitely there.
    I go to school three hours away in Norfolk, but always manage to find my way up at Adams Morgan and M Street almost every other weekend. It’d be nice to drink with feminists – and I’d totally do it, even if it’s a “three-hour drive, from me to you, north on I-95 …and I’ll do it ’till the day that I die …just to [drink with you] …” :D

    I’m in for a DC-area happy hour! Wow, that’s cool that there are so many of us. I like bars in the Dupont/U Street/Foggy Bottom areas myself (I work in Georgetown and absolutely loathe the bars here).

    Hmmmm, well technically I live in Arlington, but I go out in DC sometimes (and work here). What did you have in mind, Sunburned counsel?
    Have you ever been to the Liberty Tavern in Clarendon? Pretty nice place; not too rowdy. My friend actually reserved this little “alcove” of the bar for a birthday celebration a few weeks ago. Anyway, throw out some ideas!

    I work in Georgetown, too, Gretchen! :)
    Eeeee! It makes me smile to know there’s a Feministing fan in my midst. I loathe the bars here too (and the people who frequent them).

    Anybody else in Chicago? If anyone wants to meet up I’m down!
    p.s.- ShelbyWoo, I LOVE Tall Girl Shop Jeans!

  25. Posted November 30, 2007 at 10:07 am | Permalink

    Actually, there’s a really cool restaurant close to Georgetown called Sequouia’s …I absolutely love it. It has a nice bar, although the crowd is pretty conservative. I recommend that!

  26. SarahMC
    Posted November 30, 2007 at 10:34 am | Permalink

    I’ve always found Sequoia’s to be kind of stuffy, don’t you think?

  27. Posted November 30, 2007 at 11:10 am | Permalink

    And that’s why I always sit outside, Sarah – to watch the river and the planes coming in and the people and such …it’s so awesome outside.
    But I have one complaint about Sequoia’s …every time I go to the bathroom, I always stumble down those stairs …jacket flying and such. I am sure it’s not because of the alcohol, but somehow, those stairs always make me miss a step or two.
    Perhaps I need an escort.

    I vote no Georgetown, just because it’s not Metro accessible, and if I can put my vote in for not No. Virginia, ’cause I kind of hate come home from bars smelling like an ashtray (sorry smokers. But I love the smoking ban.
    If we’re looking for accessible, I like Fado at Gallery Place, but there’s also lots of good stuff in Adams Morgan.
    Oh, and if anyone likes divey bars there’s always Millie and Al’s.

    Yeah, Sequoia is where my company takes people for boring business dinners – not where I want to hang out with awesome Feministingers! And ProFeministMale, it’d be a little cold to sit outside on the riverbanks in December, no? =-)
    NoVa’s cool with me, as long as it’s Metro-accessible. I live in Alexandria, but I know the bars are probably better in Arlington. I’m not too familiar with that area, though.

  33. Posted November 30, 2007 at 12:37 pm | Permalink

    I do tend to think it is kind of cold, Gretchen, but then again, we feminists can keep one another one. Feminists are often some of the warmest, most loving people in the world, you know? :)
    Then I suggest something near American University! I feel an affinity for that area.
    I love drinking with American University students and was once even in love with one.
    Adams Morgan = very close to American University.

    OK, Jen and I are busy figuring out where exactly, but there will definitely be a simultaneous DC happy hour on the 19th… Stay tuned.

  35. Posted November 30, 2007 at 1:06 pm | Permalink

    Whoohoo! Marc is SO there. Any excuse I have to go to DC, I will take!
    How will we recognize one another? Should we all wear feminist-oriented t-shirts? ‘Cause, you know, I have some!

  36. SarahMC
    Posted November 30, 2007 at 1:24 pm | Permalink

    PFM: Won’t we just recognize each other by virtue of the butch haircuts, flannel shirts and armpit hair?
    And obviously you’ll be the queen.

    I am so in the wrong part of the States to have feminist drinking fun. And moving in the wrong direction at that!

  38. Posted November 30, 2007 at 2:44 pm | Permalink

    Oh, yeah,Sarah, that’s right …just look for the really “queeny” looking guy wearing a dress and a bunch of butch-looking women and they’ve found us. :D
    Or I’ll just settle for my “(Heart) + (Heart) = marriage,” or “I (heart) pro-choice girls” or “I (heart) female orgasm” shirts for a feminist drinking party.
    Or, I could wear a dress! Whoot! I’ve only worn a dress once, when performing with the Guerilla Girls. I think it’s time I throw one back on …
