    5th Anniversary lunch in Lansing, December 2nd.

    DATE: December 2nd 2012
    TIME: 1:00 PM
    WHERE: Zeus’ Coney Island
    6525 South Pennsylvania Ave. Lansing, MI 48911
    (517) 272-7900 http://www.greecianisland.com/locations#lansing

    As of December 2nd, it will have been 5 years to the day since the first OCDO arranged open carry meeting in Michigan.

    To mark this occasion, a meet and greet at a decent restaurant in Lansing seems like a good idea. While the first meeting was in Brighton, Lansing seems like a more reasonable place on account of more options, as well as being a more central location to southern Michigan.

    All are welcome to join us in this 5 year celebration.

    The Q has invited any that want to shoot to be his guest at his gun club in Diamondale. So if you want to shoot bring your gear. Dress for December outdoor weather.

    Hope to see you there.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Yep, may want to pick a day that does not correspond to a major sporting event. I hope this goes well and the OG's of OC [Venator, WARCHILD, Michigander, etc..] in MI all have a good time.

    The game may be watched at Kelly's, which is where I'm leaning towards having this at on account of repeat good experience there in the past.

    Kelly's is fine place to meet, with a friendly staff & excellent food. Wish I could be there with you guys & gals. If I am correct they do serve alcohol, so CPL OC only. If you do not have a CPL do not carry at Kelly's.

    5th Anniversary lunch in Lansing, December 2nd.

    I'm in.

    Let me toss in another idea: Clara's (on Michigan).

    I've always had good experience there and never a problem carrying.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    About Clara's -

    They too do serve alcohol, so CPL OC only. If you do not have a CPL do not carry at Clara's without the written permission of the owners.

    Clara's has an awesome brunch on Sat and Sun! Waffles and omelets and fruit and as much bacon as you can eat! It can be a little crowded at noonish on Sunday when church lets out.

    Clara's will be packed. If we have a group of 10 or more a wait is likely. Also they don't have TVs if I recall correctly.

    I think the 5th university lunch and is a great idea. We can get together and reminisce about what a long strange trip it's been. I'll be there wherever you decide to have it.

    Just the obvious stuff.

    Food, the ability to hear each other, space that can accommodate everyone who shows up, a tv for those who want to see the game if anyone who wants to go cares (I'm not into conventional American sports so I don't care either way) and it being OC friendly would be good too. A lack of a liquor license and decent parking I'm sure would make a lot of people happy too.

    Being as it's Lansing, I'm sure plenty of places will fit the bill. Please do let me know if you know of a place better than Kelly's.

    Fozolli's in Lansing has always been kind to us.

    Parking...check. No liquor, check. TV, check. They're willing to move tables together for us.

    As I think about it I'm not sure Kelly's is open Sundays. I'll check into it. Update: KELLY'S is closed on Sundays.

    The Nut House is a sports bar. Kitty-corner from the Cooley Law Stadium (Lungnuts). Decent parking and TVs galore.

    I won't attend an event in Ingham County held in a BAR.

    I know, MSP Legal Update 86. Go read People v Watkins and keep in mind the case was in Ingham County before Judge Rosie.

    If you have it in a bar, I'm out.

    I didn't realize the Nut House was a bar. I've been in there before to eat and I just thought it was a restaurant.

    The word "Bar" isn't even in their name.

    Are restaurants typically packed in Friday nights with ppl getting drunk until 2AM?

    I'm in...where ever it will be.


    Can't think of a place that doesn't serve booze though that's still got good eats.


    I wonder if the owner of the Holt Buddies would give permission? They have some pretty nice rooms, etc in there.. pretty good eats. LOTS of nice LCD TVs

    I was going to try to set something up at the Bluegill Grill in Haslett for MOC, but haven't gotten around to it yet! That's another possibility.
