DC Meetup #12
Saturday, October 23, 2010 — 6 p.m. until it ends
Who should come? You should. Really.

If you are interested in Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects, regardless of your level of experience or involvement, or if you are otherwise involved with free content you are invited and welcome.

What, Where, When, and How?[edit]

Special Notes:[edit]

  • The meetup is the same weekend as MediaWiki Hack-A-Ton, which is in DC and bringing in developers and Wikimedia staff.
  • Bertucci's is in a GWU university building and is 100% accessible for the disabled.

Maps and info[edit]

Bertucci's (note: despite the steps, that's not the main entrance. Bertucci's is fully accessible for the disabled)
  • To get there from Metro's red line, you will have to change from the red line to the orange/blue line at Metro Center. You need to take the orange/blue line in the direction of Vienna.
  • To get there from Metro's green or yellow line, you should change to the orange/blue line at L'Enfant Plaza, and get the orange/blue line in the direction of Vienna.
  • If coming from Virginia, you can take either the orange or blue line directly to the Foggy Bottom station.
  • Ride a bike to the meetup! There is a Capital Bikeshare station across the street from Bertucci's (outside TGI Fridays at 21 & I St) and plenty of bike racks around if you ride your own bike.
  • If you drive, there is a parking garage at 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue, [1]. The parking garage entrance is on 20th St NW. Street (meter) parking is also available.
  • Here (pdf) is a GWU campus map, which shows individual buildings. Bertucci's is located in #97 on the map.


Although we will be eating, we may give sometime for people to speak and discuss about:

  8. Sadads (talk) 03:33, 13 October 2010 (UTC) School is getting a little hectic on top of the Campus Ambassador stuff, don't think I should spend a whole day traveling up and back from DC. Wish I could come. Sadads (talk) 03:26, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
    Sad you can't come but understand. When is your winter break? We certainly can schedule another meetup for then. --Aude (talk) 03:51, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
    I will be around between the December 18 and January 6 when I go over to the UK for 6 months to study abroad. Their is some discussion of doing another Wikipedia Ambassador training that first week in January, so I will definitely be around for part of that. That would be a good time to schedule another meetup as well to allow the Ambassadors to begin interacting with the community. We should have a firmer idea of when it is going to be sometime in November, so we can start planning then. Sadads (talk) 04:01, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
    Wow, sounds awesome to spend 6 months in the UK, but we will miss you. Would December 19th work for DC Meetup #13? --Aude (talk) 15:50, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
    Thanks. It should be fine for me but you may want to talk around to others too. I should be around most of that time unless I am doing anything Wikipedia Ambassador related (such as training).Sadads (talk) 20:48, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
  9. Love to, but I've got the opera that night. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 13:31, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
