I'm unable to attend since the date was moved to Saturday, however, here's the locations I would recommend. 1. Annie's Paramount Steakhouse - all of the D.C. gatherings have been held there except the last two years. There's a private room upstairs but I'm not sure of the Food & Beverage minimum. 2. Trio's Fox & Hound - the 2015 event was held there and the F&H bar was used for the dining space. 3. Floriana was last year's location though the space was a little tight. However, if numbers are lower this year it should be fine. 4. DuPont Italian Kitchen - has an upstairs space that might work for this group. These locations are all on 17th street in DuPont Circle. This is centrally located and each have private dining spaces. A private space is key for the sake of discretion. I am not sure if I'd recommend any of the 14th street establishments. They are more expensive and very mixed clientele. Our unique crowd my draw more scrutiny than desired. Another concern would be that it's rather late in the game to be looking for a space this close to the event. That will be a busy weekend for the gay friendly establishments. So, consequently, you may be in a take what you can get situation.
