[ Sorry for the short notice, or if anyone sees this twice.  The
  list was apparently rejecting my messages. ]

The DC Transhumanists will be meeting for dinner and discussion on
Thursday, March 1, 2007, at 7:00 PM, at the Hamburger Hamlet in
Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia.  At the restaurant, look for a
small sign displaying 'DCT' at the table where we are seated.  It is
not necessary to RSVP.

After the restaurant closes, the meeting may move for a while to the
tables in the main corridor of the underground shops area, about 150 feet
from Hamburger Hamlet along the corridor which leads back towards the
Metro entrance, and go on until about 11 pm.

The Hamburger Hamlet is accessible from the Crystal City Metro station
(on the Blue and Yellow lines) without going outdoors.  At the top of the
first escalator leading up from the Metro station fare gates (the second
escalator goes to the outdoors), turn right into the Crystal City Shops
North, and walk to the Hamburger Hamlet (about a 3 minute walk), winding
along the main corridor of the underground shopping mall.  It's hard to
get lost, because the side corridors are short dead ends.  There are a
few stairsteps in the main corridor.  If you are walking through a
corridor which is not lined with shops and restaurants, you probably made
a wrong turn at the top of the escalator, and you need to go back to the
escalator and enter the Crystal City Shops North.  There are usually some
small brochures at the information desk just inside the entrance to the
Crystal City Shops North, which include a map of the Crystal City Shops.

The Hamburger Hamlet is located in the Crystal City underground, in the
Crystal City Shops North, and the restaurant is directly accessible by
surface road on Crystal Drive, almost directly across the street from the
Water Park on Crystal Drive.  The actual street address of the complex is
1725 Jeff. Davis Hwy., and that is what is marked above the entrance
nearest the Hamburger Hamlet, though that entrance is in fact on Crystal
Drive.  The Hamburger Hamlet is just inside the doorway, on the right.
There are some metered parking spaces along Crystal Drive in that
vicinity, and the underground parking has been free of charge in the
