Though I’d spent the week in Philly training for a new job and wasn’t able to leave there until right before rush hour began, I was still able to make it back in time to attend the DC Metro MINIs Meet and Greet at Kilroys in Arlington.
It was a steamy 96 degrees when I arrived, but the indoor (air-conditioned) seating was gone so our group was out on the back patio. And hey, at least it was shady and the decor was top-notch!
Nick and Melissa arrived first and did a great job of securing a big enough table. Rey and Ali, Hilary, as well as Carl and his lovely wife Faith, had arrived before me and were already enjoying some cold adult beverages. Corey and Brandy joined us.
And finally Brian and Stephanie arrived.
I wanted to try the shrimp and lucky for me it was seafood night! It was only $12 a pound and the waitress was really insistent that I get the special deal inside. Stephanie decided to have some as well.
We had a few more beers and then Ali decided to take a picture of the whole group.
Eventually, Haemish escaped from work to join us. Then Ali, Hilary, Melissa and I found some new and interesting Instagram accounts to follow.
Eventually we began to realize not only were we melting, we were surrounded by smokers. Ali bailed and before too long I realized I was starting to melt and decided to talk off as well. Only to find my Flower had made a new friend!
Another fun event for the DC Metro MINIs. We have a few more planned in the next week and only 8 days remain until the #EpicMINIRally…
