do you post on getcrafty.com too? i made a similar post and a couple of people responded. is it okay if i cut & paste your answer there?
i'm not quite sure what a good place would be. most of the non-starbucks coffeeshops close around 5 or 6pm. maybe using a room in a library? i'm not familiar with any of the libraries around here besides the main branch on franklin and the one on the corner of belmont and ellwood, so i don't know about the west end branch.
i live in oregon hill, so i usually stick to downtown, fan and carytown areas. i'm not quite sure what would be available past carytown.
I haven't posted there before, but I'll definitely take a look at it. In the meantime feel free to post my reply there. As for location, I was thinking West End because I live and work in the Far West End, as do the other people I've talked to about this so far. The library might not be a bad idea. The other place I've thought of is the Baker's Crust in Short Pump Town Center. It's quite large and business seems pretty slow there by ~7PM so they'd probably be okay with us meeting there.
