There was some talk about this about a month or so ago. There are quite a number of Interferencers who are going. Check the archives, it was probably around mid November time frame. I wish I could go, I would LOVE to hear Bono speak on a serious subject sometime in person, rather than watching him on TV or radio.

Okay, folks--let's get some planning going! Is anyone staying the night or from the area and want to hang out/go out afterwards? I'll be finishing Step 2 of my boards for med school & would love to meet up after y'all are done listening to/stalking Bono. Shall we pick a nearby pub?

hey utoo... that sounds like a grand idea... a pub nearby would be fun! When I get a chance I will look into what around the Washington Hilton.. We could also meet up in the bar in the hotel too.

Awesome! The hotel is at 1919 Connecticut Avenue, NW. My wife actually works in the building right next to it! There are some good places very close to the hotel. One I'd recommend is called The Brickskeller. It's a few blocks away, definitely in walking distance, and it's famous in the area for having hundreds of beers from all over the world.

Brickskeller's main page: http://www.thebrickskeller.net/

Brickskellers's huge beer list: http://www.thebrickskeller.net/_wsn/page3.html

Any suggestion, though, would definitely be fun.

I'm up for whatever you guys decide. I'll either be flying in or driving down from NY. Haven't decided the best way yet.

Everyone is welcome, I guess we need to get on the ball with the exact details though….. I think you should still be able to get tickets, last I heard they were still available. Check out the thread in Pleaba it's more active.

Okay, details!

I think The Brickskeller would be a lot of fun. It's a few blocks away, but easily walkable. I'm not able to go to the speech (got to take Step 2 of my medical boards ), but I'd really like to meet up with everyone. If folks would like to do the Brickskeller, maybe we can all meet up somewhere outside the hotel (I can suggest a few spots). Would anyone who'll have a cell phone be able to email or PM me & I'll give you my number---just give me a call when the speech is done & you're ready to hang out? And also if you guys decide to go somewhere else instead of Brickskeller---gimme a call?

Hey Utoo, I just sent you a PM with my cell phone number. I will be with U2fanatic4ever and skjuls after the talk. I am flexible with wherever you guys choose to go.
