Ambulance Chaser's suggestion of Lauriol Plaza is a good one. Â The drinks are better than the food, but the restaurant is used to big groups. Â I will call for a reservation for Friday, April 8, 7:30 pm, if I know the number of people to expect. Â If the majority of the guests think 7:30 is too early, I'll make it for 8:00. Â All RSVPs by March 30th, please.
Thanks for taking the lead, Nick. Â I went to Lauriol Plaza last Friday and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Â But you're right, the drinks are great. Â Nothing says "bring on the weekend." like a pitcher of frozen margaritas.
Any way I can talk you out of Tex-Mex? Â The only suggestion I have is Old Glory (BBQ, if you're not aware) in Georgetown.
I think Lauriol Plaza serves Spanish dishes as well. Â Old Glory is a good place, but in my opinion not as fun as LP. Â And not nearly as big.
I am up for anything, count me for 2, Friday is fine, just let me know the time. I arrive Thursday at 9 am, staying it looks like at the Hyatt Arlington Hotel, if anyone has any better suggestions, please let me know....I just want to be within quick walking distance to the metro, close to Georgetown, and in a nice hotel.
Georgetown has no Metrorail station, so you're going to be walking either way. Â I don't think you can do much better than the Hyatt Arlington . . . a ten-minute walk to Georgetown over the Key Bridge.
