sigh... The Cheesecake Factory was one of my favorite spots. I lived a few blocks away from it!
And
White Flint Mall was my shopping turf!




Enjoy the food and... the cheesecake!icon_biggrin.gif

Best wishes for a mini-powwow in a mega location with mega food!

Yes, the powwow is on Aug 20, 2004

Sandra,

That picture is exactly where it is. Notice the Dave and Busters sign up top there. It is a great place if you like video games or just sitting down for a drink. Possibly a place to go after dinner, although they charged a cover last time I went on a weekend night a while back.

If anyone's around, come on down. The more the merrier.

Yes Edward, Dave and Busters is a great place for sitting down for a drink. Last Sunday my husband and I met there another ProZ.com member and her family from the UK and we had a great time. That was the first time we met her, even though we have known each-other for almost five years through ProZ.com. It is funny that we are going to the same area for another powwowicon_smile.gif

Sandra, thanks so much for the picture. I wish you could come too. Maybe a next time...icon_smile.gif

Edward and Monika.... Aug 20, 2004

I no longer live in the DC area! My friends over there have been trying to persuade me to come back...East.
But I have had it with winter storms, and the... cold!

Regards,

P.S. Give us a brief report, anyway.
