In lieu of our usual informal meeting location in Bethesda, we will be having a joint social meeting with the Potomac Speleological Club (PSC) and the Battlefield Area Troglodyte Society (BATS). These are other active caving clubs in the DC area. The format will be the same: eating, drinking, socializing, and no formal program. The date is the same as the usual Grotto meeting (Thursday, June 12). Folks will start arriving about 6:15 and there will some brief announcements around 7:30. It should be fun evening.
This joint meeting will be at the Ragtime Restaurant in Arlington, Va., at 1345 N Courthouse Rd. (near the corner of 14th St. N.) and the restaurant is close to the Courthouse station on Metro's Orange line. Play with the interactive map, below. There is normally ample street parking available and there is a parking garage nearby. Ragtime features a variety of moderate priced menu options and various caver beverages. Ragtime's Web site is: http://www.ragtimerestaurant.com/.
This meeting is a great opportunity to try a different restaurant, meet new cavers, and probably hear of some new caving adventures. Everyone from DCG, PSC, and BATS (and anyone else interested in caving) is welcome.
