THE AFTER MEET SOCIAL HAS RETURNED.
Join us for the swim meet social at Paladar – a Latin Kitchen & Rum Bar. Located 3 blocks from the Aquatic Center, Paladar is a fresh, colorful and fun Latin American restaurant experience inspired by Central & South America, Cuba and the Latin Caribbean. Their menu features freshly prepared guacamole, slow roasted and grilled meats, fresh seafood and homemade salsas. The rhythm of Latin Music sets the tone with their unique rum bar offering fresh muddled Mojitos, over 50 selections of Rum and an approachable and exciting wine list. They are dedicated to finding the highest quality ingredients with a focus on responsible sourcing. They support farms that practice humane animal treatment and avoid using antibiotics and added hormones whenever possible.
The meet social, located in a private section of the restaurant, is $25 (the balance is subsidized by the Ancient Mariners) and includes a sumptuous buffet and 1 drink ticket – mojitos, wine, beer, sangria, and non-alcoholic specialty drinks included.
A special meet rate of $99 per night (plus taxes) is now available at the Marriott directly across the street from the pool. This is an outstanding rate for the Washington DC metro area. It is available until February 15 (we will extend if at all possible). You may call 877-212-5752 and ask for the "US Masters Swimming 2016 Albatross Open" special rate, or just click on the Marriott logo or this link to make your reservation directly.
Please note "tech suits" will not be permitted at the Albatross. A press release from USMS regarding the rule change is available here (pdf).
