I specifically mentioned City State because they promote themselves as a place where parents can enjoy themselves with their kids. They have even had kid-focused events in the past. I tried to note that it's probably not great for a party or more than a few people in a single group.

You may choose not to patronize that establishment as a result, but your callousness is pretty jarring.

What kind of gathering/attendance are we talking about? 10 toddlers and ~20 adults with room to roam and bring toys/entertainment?

My first instinct was City State Brewing, but I personally wouldn't say it's setup to accomodate that many people, especially toddlers.

One thing to note: you must be present (in the same room as the printer) for the duration of the print.

I mention this because it was quite a limiting factor since prints can take awhile and logistics around appointments are challenging (e.g., Saturdays fill up quickly, so you're left with T/Th during typical work hours). There isn't a very good way to take calls or meetings, which I learned the hard way.

To schedule an appointment, they create a unique link for you once you've completed the training.

My post was admittedly a bit curt.

The implication was that you have to get to Metro Center, and then it's 50 minutes. For me, that means a solid 90 minutes door to door including a bus and two trains (with bags). DCA is less than half that for me.

I would do it, but tough sell for most other people in my life (wife, parents, etc.)

Also just frustrated that they can't run an express train. a 20-min ride from MC to IAD would be incredible.

Are you talking exclusively about 5G coverage? If so, mmWave (the 5G tech that VZW uses) is notoriously bad at penetrating walls, so that probably explains why you need a window to get reception. see here:

I assume you can enable non-5G service on your phone, which is where I would start.

Dacha (Shaw; not sure about Navy Yard) has a Croque Monsier for weekend brunch that has country ham.

I personally have issues with their business practices and no longer patronize that establishment.
