    Sounds like a great idea... never had a problem at that Fuddruckers, or any. I'm thinking an Old Town dinner would be nicer though since a lot have outdoor seating.

    Southside 815 (http://www.southside815.com/home.asp) has outdoor dining in Old Town that can seat 30....but the guy told me that they don't take reservations for it and it's in high demand.

    Want to give that a go?

    FYI, B&J's has historically been anti-2A, donating large amounts to people we don't like. I don't know if that's changed as they have been through several changes of ownership.

    The company, which is known for its strong commitment to social causes, appointed a gentleman named Perry Odak as CEO. It caused a stir when the company revealed that Perry was most recently a senior manager at U.S. Repeating Arms Co.
    If they've changed their tune, perhaps we can suggest some new flavors:

    1) GUNS 'N' ROSES. Gun-shaped chocolate pieces and strawberry "roses" in vanilla ice cream. Your "Cherry Garcia" sold well, and with a similar endorsement from Axl Rose or Slash, this one could too!

    2) UZI DOOZIE. Super-premium vanilla ice cream with a spray of chocolate chips, butter brickle, and coconut "shrapnel." Make your taste buds bleed!

    3) SHOT IN THE DARK. Dark chocolate ice cream streaked with fudge ripples. Disarmingly delicious!

    4) SHOOTY FRUTTI. This one is probably a fruit-flavored sorbet, along the lines of "Doonesberry." Death by pleasure!

    5) SECOND AMEND-MINT. Two kinds of chunky treats (M&Ms and Kit Kats) swirled into rich minty ice cream. It'll get 'em up in arms!

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I live close by and usually go to Bugsy's Taver; its right there on King Street next to the Fish Market and Ben and Jerry's. They have greeeat pizza and TV's to watch the game in case we get bored. They also have large tables as I've seen huge groups of soccer moms come in to feed their team.

    They have outdoor dining for about ten people.

    Does that sound good?

    Ok, if we want to be in Old Town, there isn't that much outdoor dining. Since it seems people want both these things, maybe an open carry dinner in Alexandria isn't a great idea.

    Waterfront Park, Saturday, 1100 - 1900 (or 11 am to 7 pm for civilians).

    New to this site

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I think I'm going to push the dinner back to August 11th. I'll post a new thread as it gets closer announcing place and time.

    Thanks, sjhipple.

    Meantime, my family and I will likely be at the Irish festival for at least part of the afternoon. So if you see two of us carrying real pistols and a bearded guy with a Lego gun, that's us <grin>.

    Outdoor dining is at a premium in OT. Chart house has outdoor seating, but I am pretty sure you'll need a reservation. That's where I went a few weeks back...

    They're pretty pricey too, but the food is excellent. I'll have to ask Mrs. Y what the name of the last place we ate was... It was a block from Bilbo Baggins...

    Spent about 4 hours at the festival. Lots of :what:but absolutely no issues.

    Only police presence was one officer, in uniform, with friend or significant other, who spent his entire time there watching the stage and not the crowd. He was listening to radio calls, apparently, but didn't even visibly scan the crowd.
