    At our last meetup the idea was kicked around of having an Open Carry meetup inside the beltway, with the added kick of being somewhere along the Metro. Also, perhaps getting away from Friday nights, maybe Sunday evening or even a lunch. Mr Days was suggested and I would also throw in the Nam Viet Restaurant (good food and interesting pictures from POW reunions held there). All options are open at this point, any thoughts?

    Personally Sunday evenings work for me. Weeknights conflict with my work schedule a lot of times.

    How about one of the places in Pentagon Row? We can all walk through the mall from the metro to get there (Pentagon Mall exit, NOT PENTAGON)... There is plenty to eat there. I have at a few of the restuarants there.

    Anymore inside the beltway from there is DC.


    And yes, away from Fridays is a good thing.

    Sunday works for me. I'd be more inclined towards a lunch or afternoon meetup.

    I like the Pentagon Row idea this Sunday around lunch or late Brunch time.

    Weather forecast for Sunday is some sun and clouds, highs in the mid-50s.*

    I once dined there outside (because of the cigarette smoke inside) at Sine Irish Pub.

    There is also a Chammp's Restaurant there.* 1 PM at one of these sound good to people?

    Lets all go there and see what they say when we deny the ID and access to search our cars.

    But wait, they were not violating my rights, they were doing it for my protection.

    That's why I carry when I go to robbing malls, I mean shopping malls.

    I wonder, was the armored car guard armed?

    I'm just thinking about the unwarranted searches of my car and the checking of my ID just because I'm there when something happens. DC police do not like it when you tell them no when they ask for ID.

    Well, more along the lines of "Am I being accused of something?"
    "No"
    "Then no, you cannot see my ID."

    I like the Pentagon Row idea. I'm not familiar with most of the eateries there - I've been to Sin'e and the Lebanese Taverna.



    Sin'e, Chammps, I'm okay with them. Might go wandering through the mall afterward before taking the Metro home

    I will put the question on the floor then. Who would be up for a meetup this Sunday at 12:00 at Champs on Pentagon Row? I'm game.

    I haven't heard that used properly in a few months! It looks like I won't be able to make it on Sunday. My schedule is just too crazy. Maybe I can catch up with y'all at the VCDL meeting on the 16th, insh'allah

    I will likely be there, once I find out where there is and will see if my wife wants to go.

    When we arrive, do we ask for the OCDO table, or Mr. Longwatch?

    Heres the list so far.

    XD Owner
    Tess and family
    IonEngine and wife maybe.

    I'll make a reservation for 12:30 for 8 people later today unless someone else wants to RSVP. Ask for the OCDO table. They have open seating so it probably won't be to much trouble if someone else shows up.

    I'll be there (tommorow, the 5th right?), but is it really under the highway overpass? Google maps shows the same location right underneath. I probably won't be carrying though, becasue I can't afford to get a $60 holster that I won't use everyday, I've got a baby on the way, and the value priced holsters were currently out of stock at Shooter's, I may not have time to check Dawson's, infact, I'm on shift right now and gotta get back to work.
