|Dear Magic Hotel.... DC crash space & photo assistant
||[May. 21st, 2012|07:51 am]
Dear Magic Hotel,
I am going to be in Washington D.C. on May the 27th, 2012 photographing the DC Rollergirls. I need a place to crash Saturday night (I'm coming in the evening of the 26th). Sofa's fine, I'm easy. Cats/snakes/turtles/fish a bonus.
I'm also looking for a photo assistant/driver for Saturday (this is a paid gig) should be someone with a working knowledge of the DC metro area. Love of photography and roller derby a plus.
There's no reason these have to be the same person/place.

I'd love to offer you crash space (and there would, indeed, be dogs aplenty--and one crotchety, but yet, somehow lovable cat named Queen Latifah), but we actually live about 2 hours outside of DC. However...we only live about an hour from Richmond and there is a Roller Derby team down here. http://www.rivercityrollergirls.org/
And you would get to hang out, get loved on by insanely friendly amstaffs, ignored (and possibly shed upon) by the cat, and get to check out some beautiful Virginia countryside.
Just let us know--our couch is available any time.

We have an extra bedroom with a queen-sized bed & guest bathroom, on the Hill, available that night. You'd have to be cool with two 20-lbs terriers since they run the house. I could potentially be the driver, too, just need to check with hubs about schedule that day. My only question is if you'd cover any parking fees since I only have a Zone 6 sticker and most places charge parking on Saturday.
PS: Rolling Thunder is here in DC on Sunday, so if you have some extra time it would be worth checking out as well.
I know we're not *in* DC, but you are always welcome here.
Oh and Trin has Frogs now. ;-)
Passed to friends involved with DCRG. :)
be sure to tell them to talk to Wham about getting photographed!
What time Saturday? I have a car and a good knowledge of the area (plus a GPS for what I don't know), but am not available until noon.
we're probably starting early. alas.

as it happens
One of the DC Roller Girls is a good friend from college. Not to say she can assist or give you somewhere to crash herself, but she may be able to point you in the not completely wrong direction.
If nothing more definite turns up, email me at theda AT theda-b DOT com.
You've got a space on Fort Belvoir, VA as well as transportation to and from the city and (unskilled) assistant+tour guide services.
I'd love to do photo assistant/driver stuff! And I'm an early bird with a GPS so we can find our way around. :)
Our guestroom is available, though about 30-45 minutes from DC. Regardless of where you stay, I move that a place and time be designated where beverages and food can be consumed and shenanigans be had in y'all's company, perhaps the evening of the 26th?
wonderful idea! :) and if you stay with Liz and Rob you're close for me to pick up if you need a driver still. :)
Super late to the reply party here, but I'm a few miles outside DC with a fold-out couch and friendly foster cats, should all your other million offers somehow fall through. I've been reading your blog for ages and would love to meet you in person someday. :)
Aww man, I fill all those requirements, but I am in Texas! Let us know if you need help shooting the girls down here ;)
