The National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals – Chesapeake Region invites you to join us for a barbecue on Sunday, June 26, at the Washington DC home of NOGLSTP-CR Vice Chair Brian Haugh. This is a family-friendly event, so please bring your partners, children, and other friends and family.
What: Pride Barbecue
Where: Home of Brian Haugh in Washington DC (see text, below, for address and parking information)
When: Sunday, June 26, 2:00 – 6:00 PM (rain or shine)
RSVP: NOGLSTP-CRfirstname.lastname@example.org, by Wednesday, June 22
This will be a fun, informal gathering. NOGLSTP-CR will provide some basic grilling items (chicken and vegetables), as well as some soft drinks. We’ll have coolers for any other beverages you wish to bring (including alcohol, but always drink responsibly). We also encourage you to bring anything else you’d like to grill (e.g., hot dogs or burgers, along with buns) and your favorite fixings. Please also bring a side dish or a dessert to share.
Brian lives at 4617 42nd St NW, Washington DC 20016. The house is very Metro-accessible, less than 2 blocks from the Tenleytown/AU red-line Metrorail stop, and one block from Wisconsin Avenue Metro bus lines. If arriving on Metrorail at Tenleytown, just walk one block down River Road from Wisconsin Avenue by the Container Store, cross over Brandywine St., and go right onto 42nd St at the light. The house is the 2nd one on the right on 42nd St. For driving directions, Brian suggests that you use your favorite internet or GPS directions source. Once you’re in range, you will find the house just north of the intersection of River Road and 42nd St NW. The house is uniquely identifiable by its columns on the 1st and 2nd floor verandas in the front. There is usually plenty of street parking available in the area.
Brian’s home features a sizable back yard, deck with outdoor dining set, a patio with additional seating, and a 4-burner serviceable grill. Feel free to bring any activities that can be safely enjoyed in the out-of-doors. This is a rain or shine event, as Brian will make his spacious interior available if necessary. So if the weather looks bad, feel free to bring board games and other indoor activities, instead.
At the barbecue, we’ll also be discussing plans for the upcoming Baltimore Pride Festival on Sunday, July 24. Please be on the lookout for a separate email next month regarding that event. And we are planning to announce other social and technical activities for the late summer and into fall.
Please note, the RSVP deadline is for convenience; following it would serve as a courtesy to us. Certainly, though, we will be happy to see you if you decide to attend on short notice.
