....on Saturday, June 17th.
Be there or be square! :p
I need to start getting RSVPs ASAP and also need to know how many people will need a hotel room. I'm trying for a good group rate.
Thanks,
Cathy

How far are you from the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel?

Looks good for me so far! That is, if you still have my piano there.

mark,
You're never going to believe this, but it's still here. Do you think I should put it in the front window or something? No, that wouldn't be right....it might fade the beautiful wood. Oh well, someday someone will discover it's true worth and just snap it up in a heartbeat. I guess you'd better act fast if you still want it!

Cathy

Actually, I'm thinking I'm in a pretty good bargaining positioning here. I figure in a few more years, you'll be begging me to take it off your hands--maybe you'll even throw in one of those Estonias for free as an incentive.

markb--Always thinking.

I guess you can count me (and probably at least one parent) in as well. Hopefully we'll be able to make it!

Hi, Cathy --

I'll plan on it, though this could be a busy time at work. Even if I'm not prepped to play, I'm pretty reliable when it comes to providing and consuming food. Please keep us posted as to times, what to bring, etc.

Hi, I'm new to the forums and also new to the piano (7 months, age 23)

I'm not sure what these piano parties are about but I live in Reston.

Will people be playing? or buying? or both I guess? hehe.

Nick

I also have never been to a piano party, but I live in Rockville (near the Shady Grove Metro Stop) and am interested to join in. How do these things work?

Here's how it works....
We piano geeks get together to eat, drink and be merry. Some people play, some don't. Usually I fix the "major" food and everybody else brings beer, wine, soda, whatever, or a dessert. Some people are coming from very far away (Chicago, Boston, North Carolina, Michigan, etc.), so I don't want them to worry about food.
Everyone needs to RSVP ASAP so that I can plan accordingly. There are 2 Hotels within a block of my store -- but you need to book early, I've only reserved 10 rooms so far. Call me (1800-440-HARL or 703-739-2220) if you want info.
These things are always loads of fun!
All the best,
Cathy

Hi, Cathy!

I got an e-mail from markb. He begged and pleaded with me to come to the next DC-area piano party. He just wants me there so that he'll sound pretty good in comparison!

I needed to stop my lessons a couple of months ago, and haven't really touched the keyboard since. So, I may not play, but I'd like to see and hear everyone else. If it's OK with you, I'd like to crash the party.

Look forward to seeing you and the gang, again.

Luv ya . . . Linda

Oh puhleeeze! :rolleyes: Despite the fact that our duetting just emphasized how you're in the major leagues and I'm waiting to be called up to play "A" ball, I'd like to see you there anyway!

Could you PM or or post the address of wherever this party is? I'll possibly attend, depending on how prepared I am to play. :p

Silent Omen, try Cathy\'s website for directions. Come regardless of whether or not you want to play anything. There's no external pressure to play, but once you see all of those nifty pianos, you're likely to want to at least dink around on them. You're probably about 30 minutes from Cathy's.

Yup, no pressure to perform. But usually everyone at least plays a few notes. Especially after a couple of drinks.

Sorry, klavierspielerin, you already said you were going. No take-backs.

Careful Mark,....
Don't give him too much information. He probably wants to snatch it away from you.
I still have your piano safely tucked behind closed doors. (waiting for you to save up enough $$ to buy it)
Faithfully yours,
Cathy

If you arrive before I do, perhaps you can arrange a private viewing with Cathy. Otherwise, when I get there, I'll probably let you see it--if I can remember the combination to the vault. But NO TOUCHING THE PIANO.
