I live in Richmond. Is that close enough?

OK, so we might have to find a more central location and all com inwards a piece. We'll try to avoid the democratic people's republic of Fairfax, but I have a friend in Arlington with a small place he might donate to the cause.

I live about 20 minutes outside of DC as well.

I live outside of Southern Baltimore and work in Hanover Maryland... while the thought of a drive to Washington doesn't appeal to me the thought of Absinthe does make it worthwhile :-)

I'm way out near Leesburg, but close enough if we want to do a DC area tasting some evening.

Anyone up for that?

During the RR years I resided in Arlington and Alexandria, in that order. First on S.Arlington Ridge Road, then in a high rise just off King Street and I-395, and finally in a $1200 a month townhouse in Old Town, in Tannery Yard. So named because there had been a leather tannery there. The million dollar townhouses in the next block were constructed where the whorehouse that had serviced the tannery workers had stood. Such is progress.

The federal courthouse is three block down the same street. There went the neighborhood!

I frequented the George Washington Tavern of the Seaport Inn at the foot of King Street (on the Potomac), as it was around the corner from Interarms and my buddies there and I would congregate after working hours, joined my a motley bunch of federal agents, spooks, arms dealers, congressional aides, lobbyists, Armenian emigres, etc.

In '89 I traded all that in for the relative peace and quiet of Bangkok. Wash DC can be hard on the liver.

I don't live there, but I have friends down that way so I get there a lot.

I'll be in Arlington on the 13th and 14th of january for the 'Spirit of Belgium' beer conference.

I've gotten the impression there are several other folks on here that live in the Washington, DC area. Show of hands? I'm in Arlington.
