I’ve been wanting to hold an event for local readers. Now that Ben from One Mile at a Time is settled in, it’s a good opportunity.
Plan to meet at Quinn’s Pub in Capitol Hill on March 17 for drinks and eats at 6:30 PM. Please RSVP in the comments with the number of guests. Quinn’s normally doesn’t take reservations but has agreed to set aside tables if we show up before the dinner rush. They might give away your seat to other customers if you don’t show. Please be on-time. I’ll arrive at 6 PM and wait at the bar.
The setting is pretty casual. If we take over the entire restaurant I’ll look into organizing something more formal in the future. And yes, we’ll mix it up between Seattle and Bellevue. I’ve only met a few locals in the area, so I hope a few more show up to match faces with screen names.
So sorry about the confusion yesterday. I hit “Publish” instead of “Save Draft,” and then someone told me it was St. Patrick’s Day. But you know what? Finding dates everyone can agree on is tough, and I don’t think this is the kind of place that will attract an especially rowdy St. Patrick’s Day crowd, especially on a Sunday. We’ll give it a go.
There will be more events in the future, maybe even something over multiple days when it’s nice in the summer. Don’t feel you have to fly in or make special arrangements if this date doesn’t work for you.
