I tried to find the answers about the Tower Green but the girl at the Concierge Desk didn't seem too sure but thought that it would be the green area in front of Gewirz/Hotung. I think we'll be able to figure it out when the time comes!

So who's in?!

Edit: MSPeast and Unitas...I hope to see you there, since I haven't gotten a chance to really meet either of you. Waterman, I'm sorry it's not a pool party, as promised.

Also, a reminder about our TLS meetup tomorrow after the Gewirz Great Race and before the baseball game! We're going to meet in the lobby of Gewirz at around 4 p.m. to walk over to RocketBar together. You can buy your ticket for the baseball game at the Concierge desk for 10 dollars.

I'm game, meeting what time/where?

What do you mean no pool party?

Here's some more luau information, complements of my RF:

"Tonight at 8pm is our annual LUAU on the quad by the clocktower.
Free food and music, awesome people from all over the country with fascinating things to say (your classmates)."

See you all there, including Volsi (shhh we won't tell anyone you're not really a Gewirzian!)

Yay!

Just dropped some $120 at Target. Bedding is expensive! Glad that my high school gets $1.20 of it, though. 8)

FTFY... I can't believe how much money I spent to move in and have very little food.

Yay, I still have to meet you, Unitas!

How about 7:45 in the lobby? The reception starts at 7:30. We can make a fashionably late entrance.

Regarding the pool party, the letter said we'd find out more about the pool party but it's not on the schedule :( The luau description doesn't say anything about swimming :(

Blarg! The "sheet set" included pillowcases! I didn't know that and bought a separate set. At least I have plenty of pillowcases now... for one pillow.

I just got back from Target. Can't believe that they restocked stuff today; almost everything is gone already... it's like a hurricane in there!

I'm hoping to meet some of you guys tonight at the reception. I moved in pretty late so haven't really met anyone yet.

I know, that's the busiest I've ever seen a Target... they were out of carts when I got there.

Which lobby? Heh, dumb too late question. I looked around and couldn't find anyone (then again don't know what people look like. We'll end up meeting formally (or already have) sometime.

I had a lovely time. You guys are great.

Unitas, we couldn't find you. We thought of shouting your screen name, but thought better of it.

You're awesome, MSPeast.

Unitas, I'm sorry for failing on my "everyone let's meet in the lobby at 7:30/7:45." My family was just leaving and it took awhile to get everything settled. Will you be at Rocketbar tomorrow? I've been spreading the word to others so we should have a good turnout...hopefully?

Random question. Does anyone like black twizzlers? (Waterman?) My aunt loves them and bought a huge bag of them, but left them here. The bag is opened (sketch, I know) but more than three-quarters full. I can't stand black Twizzlers or their smell, so I'm just going to toss them if no one wants them!

Edit: also anyone know how to play racket ball and willing to teach me and play?

Here is what I was told:

Helpful person wrote:We're going to meet in the lobby of Gewirz (Like down near the elevators) at 4 p.m. this afternoon and walk over to RocketBar together for Happy Hour.It's in Chinatown, on 7th in between H and G. It's actually very close to the big Chinatown gate and near the Verizon Center. If you see the Fudruckers, it's right near there. Here's the website!
http://www.rocketbardc.com/#


I don't know about the game. They offer special reduced price tickets ($10.00) to residents. You could always just come in and ask. I know I am not going to be able to go to the game, so that is at least one unused ticket.

I took a class on raquetball in undergrad, so I'm basically an expert.

Seriously though I'd like to start playing. It's fun and good exercise.

It was great meeting everyone tonight.

Tomorrow on the Gewirz schedule is a neighborhood tour and night out in DC. Night out looks fun, not sure about tour. Orientation starts tomorrow also.
