Anyone interested in starting a "Spain-Lovers" dinner group in the Washington, DC area? Activities to include: eating, drinking, sharing stories, practicing the language, etc.

If interested, please reply to this message. When we get enough responses we can coordinate a time & place...

Saludos,
Rob

Well, I'm about 2 hrs away (1 hr to Baltimore)but I occasionally have business in Reston and have relatives in Springfield. I'm sure after my trip this summer I will be longing for Spain conversation so I'll watch for future posts

The DC International Film Festival is running from April 17 to 29. There are several Spanish films playing (e.g., El Maestro de Esgrima, Flamenco, Tomandote). Perhaps we could do a movie and dinner.

I'm glad to see such a positive response in only a few days! As far as the film festival goes, we can open it up for discussion & see who's interested...

My thoughts are that tapas/drinks/dinner might be easier to coordinate, taking into account everyone's busy schedules, other obligations, etc. Furthermore, a casual "happy hour" type of get-together might be more inclusive as a first event for the group.

Weekends are generally better for me... I'll go ahead and suggest a few possible dates -- let me know which, if any, work for you.

Friday 4/27
Friday 5/4
Saturday 5/5 (Cinco de Mayo... I know, I know, it's a Mexican holiday!)

Possible locations:

Jaleo (great tapas & sangria)
Toro Tapas ("asi-asi")
Taberna del Alabardero (best Spanish cuisine in DC. Dining room is a bit expensive, but they have a decent bar scene w/ tapas available)
Andalusia (never been there, but heard good things...)

rkennedy, I agree that better for the first get-together to be casual and easy to organize. I've been to Andalucia in Bethesda (there's one in Rockville also. My madrileña girlfriend says it's pretty good Spanish food, even compared to what you can find in Spain. I think they also have live Flamence on one night of the week. However, being in Bethesda, it might be out of the way for some folks.

RKennedy,
For my vote, Jaleo would be a good place, I believe the nearest metro stop is "Gallery". Jaleo was featured on Channer 4 as one of the places in the Greater Washington area where one could get drinks and food for two for $40.00. I am find with the dates.

Regards,
mclarke
