I'm organizing an annual alumni Happy Hour on either a Friday or Saturday in mid-March. I expect 20-30 people to attend (mostly DC area professionals, ages 20-60). My criteria for a venue (ideally a bar that also serves decent, but not overpriced food):
1) Centrally located in DC;
2) Within walking distance of a metro;
3) Quiet enough for conversation;
4) Reasonably priced.
There's no budget to rent a room for this event, but at the right venue, I imagine people would be happy to settle in, order drinks and have dinner.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
