    Open Carry Meet 'n' Greet -- Colorado Springs 6/1

    Ok, I'm going to float a suggestion for a meet and greet.

    Mollica's Italian Market on Garden of the Gods road.

    Friday, June 1st at 6pm. -- One issue -- they close at 8pm, though if we're still hanging out at 8pm we can head West by a mile and land at the GotG Starbucks.

    Already talked to the owner about it, he's cool though if we're too big a group and the room's available, he'll move us to the banquet room.

    An alternate would be Saturday, June 2nd for lunch since they close at 4 on Saturday.

    Thoughts?

    I can't yet say for certain to count me in, but it sounds good.

    What time does that Starbucks close?
    I only ask bcause the one I rode the motorcycle to yesterday closed at 7pm (got there at 7:20).

    Looks like it's open until 10pm every night.

    I should be in with a +1 (unless my g/f's work schedule next week is as messed up as this week)

    Sorry guys, can't make this one. Need to be in Boulder on business until about 7p.

    Maybe next time. I'm thinking about trying to get one in Castle Rock sometime in the future. Anyone interested?

    Well, that lets me out. Gotta work on Friday, and usually end up stuck after my shift ends on accounta it being Friday.
    Then there's that whole trip down from Aurora (or Brighton) and 6pm is a tough target to hit on a working day.

    Maybe next time.

    Blessings,

    As much as I've been itching for a meet and greet, it's a maybe this time. If I can get off work early, go home and shower and take care of the dogs, and have the $$, I will be there.

    I'm wide open with either Fri dinner or Sat lunch.

    If if were Sat, what time would you like it to be? 11am? Noon?

    Please let us know one way or the other, O2HeN2.

    By the way, were you a commercial diver?

    Just a note of caution. Ludlow is on private property. You'd need permission from the land owner to visit the site.

    Point is, before heading out to Ludlow, you might want to ensure you can go visit the location because it is on private property, and I am uncertain they'd permit visiting. It is a longish way to go only to be turned away.

    Let's consider combining this with a viewing of "U.N. me"

    It's a movie opening June 1 about the corruption rampant throughout the U.N. It's playing at Carmike Chapel Hills Mall (yeah, I know... just roll with it).

    Click Here for the OCDO thread about this dark and ominous yet hilarious movie!

    They have a show at 7:15, which is well-timed for a follow-on to a 6 pm dinner. Also, if we go together as a group, I can get everyone a $6 ticket (military discount).

    Is anyone else interested in seeing the film immediately after dinner?

    If I can find a holster for my new to me 1911 AND I don't have any OT on Friday I might be able to make it. I should get off from work at about 4:30pm but I work up in the Denver Metro Area around Dayton and Arapahoe.
