If Saturday in Dupont doesn’t sate your thirst now there’s one Sunday too. From Facebook:

“Come to the top of Malcom X/Meridian Hill Park and bring all your battle gear. This will be an all out showdown, winner take all.

Location:
Use 2330 15th St NW DC 20009 in Googlemaps to see how to get to the park. We will be on the top level directly at the midpoint and between Chapin Street and Euclid Street. The closest metro is U street (13th St exit) and the Columbia Heights metro is also an option and pretty much the same distance away.

Time:
The official start will be at noon (first snowball thrown). So let’s try and get as many people as we can to arrive before then. Get there early if you need time to plan strategies and setup.

Setup:
We will have two teams. No need to choose a side now. You can pick which side once you get there.
Team Polar Bear vs. Team American Bald Eagle
Battle lines will be drawn and the first team that has the majority of their team members cross over the opposing teams battle line will be declared the winner. I know it won’t be an exact science when it comes to judging but that’s ok, we’re here to have fun.

Themes:
There is no theme. Come dressed however you want. Bring whatever accessories you want, as long as they’re safe.

Prizes:
I’ll give away a $25 Amazon Gift Card to the person I feel has the “best” overall costume.

Post Snowball Fight Meetup:
Acre121 is located right near the Columbia Heights metro (1400 Irving St NW) and has been generous enough to offer us happy hour all day! So come on by any time after 12pm. $5 for all draft beer and well drinks and select wines. They’ll also add a special cider drink ($7) and Hot Toddies for $5. Here is a link to their happy hour specials which include both food and drink.”

  • Sadly the Metro option has disappeared

  • Tsar of Truxton

    Honestly, the Saturday event should be cancelled.

  • HAPPY OPM early release day!

  • Yea DC Metro once again, you can always count on them letting you down. The underground trains should be running at least.

    • I heard in WTOP that the reason they aren’t going to have the underground lines running is because they are parking the trains on the lines. Apparently it should speed up the process of getting all the lines and trains up and running when the snow stops.

  • Hello! Great snowball battle today. One casualty was my cell phone — a Nexus 5X w/ a white back. If found, please give my other phone a call @ 202-553-6426. Thanks so much!
