    We don't have any meet and greet planned, but there are surely some of us who meet up on our own occasionally who can join in for dinner some evening.

    What days will you be in town? Fill me in and I'll do my best to make sure you have some reasonably pleasant company of other OCers. Feel free to post in here and then others who we don't always see outside of the forum can join in as well.

    Never ask what day/time works for everybody - it just never works out.

    Announce where you will be at, and when. Invite folks to meet you there. (If you do not know the local places, PM someone local (like jmelvin) for suggestions or an idea of what sort of place you want to eat at. Then announce it.)

    Given a day's notice I'm willing to drive on down. (Maybe I should not say that - it might drive some folks away?)

    stay safe.

    Who asked "What day and time will work for everybody"? Nobody. We'll greet Papa Bear with open arms with 2 of us (the wifester and I) or plenty more when we find out when he's actually in town. I suppose we could even tolerate a cranktastic Santa Claus clone if we get enough notification to allow for it.

    *Papa Bear has several ways to contact me so hopefully we can give him the chance to meet the unusual crew of Lynchburg. :P

    So where are we meeting for dinner? Ruby Tuesdays, Applebees, Neighbors, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, Chinese, buffet?
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    For some reason I think that Papa Bear may be here with an 18 wheeler, so that may limit the choices away from places like Neighbor's Place or other spots with little smaller parking lots. I'd suggest "The Spot" over on Timberlake beside Big Lots if we need space for a large truck to park. The wifester and I are there about every other week or so and they have some of the best wings I've found in Lynchburg, in addition to good burgers and other foods. It's a family run business and they've been OC friendly with us and Jero and Mrs.Jero when we've been out there together.

    The Spot (The Spot Eatery)
    20722 Timberlake Rd, Lynchburg, VA 24502

    *The restaurant doesn't have a website, but it is on Facebook as "The Spot Eatery".

    The restaurant is in Timbrook Square Shopping Center with Big Lots between Greenview (where Lowe's & KFC is) and Waterlick (where CVS, Walgreens, & the BB&T are). It can be easily accessed off of US-460 either via the Greenview / Airport exit or the Timberlake Rd exit.

    I still have to find out when he'll be here to know what's an appropriate time. 6:30 or after would likely work best on my end.

    I reached Papa Bear and we'll be doing dinner at The Spot (see above) at 7 p.m. tonight. Hope others can make it. I've reached out directly to the Jero clan and some of their friends. I saw AMTilton last night and mentioned that we might be doing an impromptu dinner so hopefully he sees this and meets up with us as well.

    Well we met with Papa Bear, the Jeros, nuc65 and my wifester and enjoyed the company and the food. It was nice to see everyone again! Thanks Papa Bear for giving us a good reason to get us Lynchburgers together again.
