Are You Coming To Hang Out And Talk Travel With Us Next Week?

We’re less than a week away from the next GeekyPizza travel meetup.  Are you coming?  We’re going to mix things up a bit for our 4th travel meet up.  There will still be drinks and general fun, but we’re also going to add a formal Q&A component.  And some cool giveaways!

Jeanne and I will be answering questions that you can ask ahead of time or from the audience as we hang out with a microphone for a bit.

Key Details:

Where: Mad Rose Tavern, Arlington, VA

When: Monday, December 12th from 6pm to 9pm

You need to register ahead of time

Why?  We’ll be announcing some giveaways.  Only folks who register and attend will be eligible to win them.


I really enjoy helping folks with their travel because I usually learn along the way.  But, I like to brainstorm, something that’s harder to do via e-mail or a blog post.  And, I’m Italian, so I talk with my hands (something else quite difficult to do while typing an e-mail).  That’s why I enjoy picking up the phone or sitting down with someone to just have a good old-fashioned conversation.  It’s why I’m thankful to have Jeanne as a partner in these events.  She’s done an awesome job sourcing venues and organizing.  The duck lasagna at Dino’s (our last happy hour spot) was unbelievable.


I’ll be in Arlington on December 12th.  Will you?

My goal in life is to fill my family’s passports with stamps, creating buckets of memories along the way. You’ll find me writing about realistic ways for normal people to travel the world, whether you’re on a budget or enjoy luxury. I also enjoy taking us on the occasional detour to explore the inner workings of the travel industry.

  1. Thank you … I could definitely use the two United passes. Headed to Florida for the holidays. Crossing my fingers!! Happy holidays to you!

  2. 2 united club passes please. Wifey and I are headed to Chicago tomorrow for the weekend via United Airlines

  3. Have 2 more trips to DTW and 1 more trip to SFO over the next 2 weeks. I’ve been enjoying the LH lounge at DTW, but could really use the United Club passes at ORD and/or SFO.

  4. Traveling to Grand Cayman Dec 24 with family of 6. I have 4 United club passes but can’t get the whole family in. Would love 2 passes.

  5. Flying out of DCA on 12/22 and would love (just 1!) Admiral’s club pass or United Club pass. Thanks a ton for offering!

  6. DFW-BOS-DFW-LAX-PHX-DEN-PHX-DFW. Could definitely use the AA pass to have a chance to relax at some point during this crazy 24 hour run.

  7. Flying to SJO from CLT with a layover in PHL (ugh!) on Saturday, Dec. 17. Both United and AA have clubs at PHL. There are 2 of us, so having access to the United Club would be a treat!

  8. Heading to Orlando on Wednesday from Denver with the family, but my wife is taking a red eye with Charlotte connection after working a swing shift on Friday and she would love the American pass

  9. Last minute trip to San Francisco and LA next week on American and United. Would be a nice way to..spend the 3 hour layover!

  10. I’m flying from IAH to LAX on December 18 for a weekend of hiking/camping in Joshua Tree National Park. United passes would give warm food both before and after my weekend of campsite fare.

  11. I’m leaving out of DCA 12/21 going to ORD for Christmas! 1 United club pass would be awesome or American for my flight leaving Jan 7th!

  12. 2 United club passes for me and my wife visiting in laws in Chicago this Christmas would make our trip much more pleasant!

  13. Would love to usw the United club passes for when I return to the US with connections on Tuesday! 🙂

  14. @ED – Great event! I had a question I didn’t get to ask during the HH. I purchased business class through AA to Jakarta in January and will be going JAL part of the way outbound and Cathay return. I would love to sample first on these flights. Can I upgrade with miles? Either AA, JAL or Cathay miles? Thanks in advance!
