Ron Johnson has been making arrangements for the First Wednesday in December Get Together for some years. The event was originally held at Roys Place in Gaithersburg which is no longer in business. Last year the event was held at the Golden Bull Restaurant in Gaithersburg. Ron has provided this notice of the plans for The First Wednesday in December 2016.

First Wednesday in December Event Moves to Woodside Deli

Woodside Deli This year there is a change of venue. The event will be held at the Woodside Deli in Germantown (see info below). Trying to find a place that is amenable to all, that does not require a minimum number of attendees and allows for a variety of choices is becoming difficult. After visiting a number of bars, cafes, restaurants and joints in the Clarksburg, Germantown, Gaithersburg and upper Rockville area, the Woodside Deli was chosen.

The management and staff at the Golden Bull have been very accommodating in the past few years but business is business and our numbers have been fluctuating. Hopefully we may return at a later date.

The event will begin about 6:00pm and we will start ordering about 6:45pm. Although there is not an open bar, beer and wine can be purchased by individuals. Eight to ten person tables will be set up as before. Each table will be responsible for its tab and tip (please be generous to the wait staff).

The Woodside Deli is in the Germantown Commons Shopping Center, near the Giant Grocery. Take the Rt 118 Exit West from I-270, or the Middlebrook Rd exit. Entrance to the Shopping Center is Middlebrook Rd and Century Blvd.

Please use the form to send me an email - First Wednesday 2016 - so I can get a general number of attendees.

Pass the word around (some people don't have emails). Looking forward to seeing you all there.
