DC Car Chat – CARtoberfest Edition

In August, Be Car Chic and DC Auto Geek launched DC Car Chat – the periodic meetup of auto industry folks in the D.C. area.

So, ladies and car gents, we present you DC Car Chat – CAR-toberfest Edition.On Tuesday, October 4, we will gather at the Elephant and Castle to catch up on the latest and greatest in the D.C. auto scene. So please join us. Everyone’s welcome! Bring a friend. Bring your co-workers. We promise it will be a good time. Did I mention it’s free?Click here to register for DC Car Chat on October 4th!Hope to see you there!-Melanie & Juan

    Melanie – Someday I’ll drive up to D.C. from Raleigh and we’ll meet. I am a member of the Washington Automotive Press Association and have yet to attend a meeting. So busy! And, if D.C. doesn’t keep having whopper snowstorms when the D.C. auto show is scheduled, I might attend that event too. Maybe you can use your influence to move the show to April!

    Matt – Yes, it would be great to meet in person at some point in time! You’ll have to come to a WAPA event soon. I know – the DC Auto Show always seems to get pounded by inclement weather. Good thing my office is walking distance to the convention center! I do make it down to Raleigh from time to time, so I’ll keep you posted on that as well.Thanks again for your support of Be Car Chic – I always enjoy reading your comments!

    Melanie — do you have any new events upcoming? I work in the industry – for TireVan – and would love to attend sometime

    Hi there – Thanks for your interest. We are planning an event surrounding the D.C. Auto Show in January. With the holiday season, it’ll probably be too tough with schedules to coordinate anything before 2012. But I’ll be sure to keep you on my email list, but feel free to check the #DCcarchat hash tag on Twitter as well.
