    Given the forecast, “indoor snowfall” may not be what people are looking for.

      I guess we’re all getting their by sleigh-ride?

        I always like getting out and taking a walk in the snow, so I might as well walk down and grab a drink or warm up by the fire! I think it will be extra festive and well attended this year.

        • ah

          If nothing else, it will feel more wintry than if they’d held it in late December. Hope folks are able to get to it.

    If this is the same event as last year it was a planning disaster. Lines all the way down to Nats Stadium trying to get in. The wait was 1.5 hrs (what we were told by the Capitol Riverfront BID volunteers managing th line). Bluejacket befitted from the overflow and an hour + wait, Nando’s had an hour wait to order. We left and partied in Capitol Hill!

      I think that is why the event is now $10 instead of free. Learned two lessons: 1) Free event + no RSVP Limit = angry customers with no motivation to wait in line for 1.5+ hrs and 2) With no RSVP limit+ hundreds of people in line = start charging per ticket and make some money!
