There's going to be a little bit of a change this month so we can participate in the Global Accessibility Awareness Day on May 9, 2012. We are going to move our monthly event from the third Tuesday to Wednesday May 9, 2012, and we will be meeting at Capitol City Brewing Company at 1100 New York Ave NW at 6:30 PM.
Please mark sure to RSVP so we can make sure to get enough seat.ing for everyone planning on attending. We don't want to have people sitting all over the resturant/bar.
Here's more information about Global Accesibility Awareness Day:

Also thanks to Mika and Sarah for the walking directions from the metro to Capitol City Brewing Company that follow. Another big thanks to the DC Night Out group for moving their meet-up from Monday to Wednesday to be able to join us.
*** Walking directions courtesy of Sarah Presley as of April, 2012
These directions are from the 11th and G Street exit of Metro Center.
The 11th and G Street exit is on the level of the station above the
level of the redline platform, just like the 13th and G Street exit
that most of us used to go out to get to M&S Grill; it's up the
escalators on the other end of the platform.
As you come up the escalators to the street out of that exit, you're
facing south with 11th Street traffic running parallel on your right.
When you leave the escalator, make a U-turn to the right, so that
you're on 11th Street facing north with its traffic running parallel
on your left.
Walk along 11th Street to the next intersection, not very far. At this
intersection, you need to cross straight ahead to cross G Street.
Walk one block on 11th street to the next street, which is H Street.
Turn left and cross 11th Street.
Then turn right and cross H Street. Capitol City Brewing Company is
right on the corner of 11th and H. After you cross H, turn left and
walk along the side of the building that faces H Street until you find
the doors to enter the restaurant.
If you're coming on the yellow or green lines and don't want to
transfer trains, you can get off at Gallery Place and come up the 9th
and G Street exit, the exit that is closest to MLK library and walk
