A small but mighty crowd showed up for the DCMM Happy Hour at Fiona’s in Kingstown. Brad and Catalina Silk (congratulations newlyweds!) arrived early, went in and got a table and finished dinner before most of the other members even made it!
I set up this event so we could welcome one of our newest members. It was the least I could do when I found out he lived in my neighborhood (which is right around the corner from Fiona’s!) I arrived right on time but was lurking in the parking lot to welcome the new guy. German arrived right after I did and we had a lovely time talking about cultural differenced before everyone else got there. When Hilary and Alex arrived we decided to go on in and as we were Quitta pulled up (it was really great she could finally have an evening off to join us!)
We all went in and that’s when we found Brad and Catalina! We sat at the table next to them so we’d have enough room and let Catalina fill us in on her new house. They’d just finished ordering all new appliances and were about to go to closing.
The new guy finally arrived! Adam (r53nerd on the DCMM forums) and his lovely girlfriend Megan said they recognized our key fobs and knew they were in the right place. They’d also parked in our area, so they clearly fit right in!
Megan had a beautiful purse, which we all admired. Sadly, they don’t have it in the green color Quitta was seeking.
Everyone ordered dinner and talk naturally shifted to driving. Adam is interested in AutoX and is looking forward to getting his car on a track.
We talked about how important it is to “drive safely” and make sure your speed is “under the limit” because we are all law abiding citizens that way 😉
Quitta brought up moonshine, and then Hilary reminded everyone of that time I went to the baitshop…
I encouraged Adam and Megan to come to the #EpicMiniRally because it will only be the most fun event EVAH. Adam said he always drives under the speed limit and is concerned that he’ll hold the rest of us up. We let him know that he can drive as slow as he likes for this event since we aren’t concerned about time, only distance!
Catalina and Brad had to leave early to finish their homework (kids!) and then German’s lovely wife Krystal finally arrived. She’d recently added some purple to her hair and it looks fantastic!
Another fun event because DCMM members are fun people!
I feel like I was there!
