    VA/MD/DC AREA FIREFLIES LET’S GOOOOOOOO!!! These “regional” threads were popular last year for organizing meetups & parties, ride shares, etc or just meeting new friends!! I went to a party with some folks in Philly last year and it was just what I needed to get me through the winter until June.

    I agree that we should have a meetup, I think there should deff be an east coast centralized meetup in addition to the other meet ups, I’m horrible with setting up events so if someone wants to help out that would be greatly appreciated, if not I’ll try to get something set up in the next week or so so there is a more unified discussion.

    Awesome, we have a starting point. Now we just have to agree on a place. In Georgetown, I’m partial to wildfire. But if we’re looking for fun and games, I’d be happy to put Penn social on the table. Democracy and such.

  • #8704

    McLovin

    Wildfire? What is that? I think a dave & busters type feel might be the best suitable place for such an event? Unless you guys want to rage?

    Of course! If we want the Dave and busters feel in DC, the only place I can think of is Penn social. But if you have a place I’m down.

  • #8712

    There is a Dave and Busters in Bethesda, MD, it could be a good central point for a meet up, easier parking than DC, and easier to get to for those coming from B’more or Richmond way

        Penn Social is easier for me personally, but I’m cool with Bethesda if a lot of people are driving from further reaches.

      hey, I can’t seem to see the event. has it already happened?
      also, might be better to get a fb group going, instead of an event.

      • #13270

        There hasn’t been an event created. It sounds like everyone is still trying to finalize the details first. Doing it as an event on FB just allows you to determine who’s coming, etc but you guys can organize it what ever way is best for you.

        It won’t work for me, unfortunately. I have family obligations both that weekend and the weekend before. April 5 is better.

        But of course, people should pick the date that works for the most people.

    Hey Yall!
    I am a college freshman that will be coming in from the Richmond, VA area and riding solo to Firefly. I am looking for either some people to carpool with (I can fit 3-4 people) or to split camp with. I already have a 4 day ticket plus camping site. Email me at Bigbrotherswl@cs.com to discuss further!
    Cheers!

    Allright fearless leader Merv make it official, start a facebook event, date, time, place! Some of us are waiting until the last minute to visit the dinosaurs in DC before they close the exhibit forever, and doing other stuff… so I want to know what weekend to keep free. I’m doing everything solo this year – driving, camping, attending – and I’d like to meet up with some fellow dmv people so I can feel like less of a loser.

    First, thank you to merv_L and Mike G for offering to organize a DC area meet-up, and if y’all were about to announce meet-up details, I’ll delete this post.

    Would anyone like to meet at the following spot?

    Time: Sunday May 31st at 1:30pm
    Place: The food court in the Reagan Building. For those unfamiliar with it, the building’s street address is 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, and the food court is located in one of the lower levels, accessible by elevators, escalators and stairs. Federal Triangle metro station (orange/blue/silver lines) is on-site. Metro Center (red line) is two blocks away, and the Archives metro (green/yellow lines) is a 13-15 minute walk from the building. There’s also a parking garage on-site, it costs $13.00 to park there on weekends.

    Hey everyone just thought I would post this around the message boards for people who donโ€™t know about the following! On June 6th @ 11pm, firefly is having their firefly kickoff concert at the Howard Theatre in Washington D.C. The regular price for tickets are 12.00 however via Goldstar.com you can get complimentary passes ($6.00 with fees due @ checkout -_- but still a discount, also as an F.Y.I. the venue has a $10.00 food/drink minimum) Iโ€™ve attached the link below. This would be a great way for those going solo to connect with other fireflies or get to know other fireflies going solo! I know @mike has posted the same, this is just the “free” way to get in! I hope to see you Guys there!!!!
    If anyone wants to connect with me shoot me an email. Iโ€™ll be in DC already so getting together to go as a group is always a great option! I hope to see you Guys there!!!!
    I was thinking about getting a VIP booth as well. I’m not going to get one alone because they are meant for 4 people. They are 200.00 or $50.00 per ticket per person (based on 4 occupants) if anyone would be interested in splitting the cost however please let me know! (I wouldn’t mind splitting the cost amongst 2 other fireflies either)

    Hey guys, I know this thread hasn’t been active since last year – but is there any chance I could carpool with someone to (and possibly from) Firefly? I’ll pay for gas money and even snacks haha

    I’m a 20 year old college student and I’m staying in Arlington this summer, but I’m meeting up with a big group of my friends from home.
