  area, have been meeting for lunch in the Metro Center area of downtown Washington, DC.

We invite and encourage you to join us every month for good food, good company,and good conversation. With rare exceptions (i.e., when we have a speaker).  We  If you have any questions (Is the food good? Is the food affordable? Where can I park?) feel free to email or call me (W3DQ) 202-482-2527) or our co-convener, Rich NN3W or Brian WV4V.Hope you can join us !
