Today! DC-Frequent Travelers Meet-Up and Toys for Tots

Just a reminder that the Toys for Tots happy hour is TODAY!  And thank you to everyone who hung out in the stream.  I have a lot of shopping to do because we raised $471 for Toys for Tots so far!  (Just $29 shy of our goal of $500).

If you can’t attend the happy hour, but want to help us hit that goal, you can contribute here by ~10am today.  After that, I’ll be shopping for the event!


Our next DC-area meet-up will be in Clarendon, VA on December 10th from 6-9 pm.  We’ll be teaming up with Tagging Miles to run a Toys for Tots happy hour.

Register for the happy hour here.

Come by to talk travel AND help some children have a brighter holiday.

Ed from Pizza in Motion and I are pairing up with Tagging Miles to do a Toys for Tots drive as part of our next happy hour.

We’ll be hanging out at a great bar in Clarendon (and yes, for those who have been coming for a while–this is a repeat location!).

We’re asking people attending to consider bringing an unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots. The toy cannot contain any food item or resemble any weapons. Other than that, the list of what you can bring is pretty wide–they are looking for a wide range of gifts.

Come to ask for travel advice. Come to meet other travelers. Or just come to share the holiday spirit!

This is sure to be a great evening, just like the last few, and we look forward to seeing you there!

The event is in Clarendon, easily accessible by the Clarendon Metro station on the Orange or Silver Line. If you are traveling to the event, there are multiple hotels nearby!
