Capital Cabal Now in Maryland too

Hank Dearden is a great guy. I have met him at Web Managers Round Table events but never had a chance to go to any of the Capital Cabal events. I was thrilled to see an email from Hank today announcing a Maryland Capital Cabal meet every 4th Tuesday.
Before I give you the details of the meet, I must tell you Hank always spices his emails with something funny. The latest email had this :

Before we get to other facts, just a quick reminder to duly apply yourself
to today’s necessary paperwork. Yup, it’s an annual offering but brings us
joy all year around. We’re speaking of course about that birthday card for
actress Emma Watson aka Hermione in the Harry Potter movies, who was born in

However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
