    Spartans Family Restaurant
    9542 Burke Rd
    Burke, VA 22015

    703-503-5800

    Anyone up for brunch at a gun-friendly, family restaurant? They serve great Greek and Italian food there.

    How about Sunday Jan. 6? Say 11:30am.

    Sounds good to me. I had planned to invite one of my (non-shooting, but supportive) friends to the range that day; we could do a meet-up and still be at Gilberts for a couple of hours of shooting before they close.

    Hope to see you there.
    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.

    I'll be on day two of my move Jan 6th. This might be a welcome distraction from unpacking and cleaning.

    Since I haven't gone to any other OClunches or dinners, I would love to go to one just around the corner from me (literally), but that day and time aren't good for me. I could do a weeknight or Saturday dinner, but even though I work down at the end of the same shopping center, lunch won't work for me on my schedule.

    That being said, the lunch menu is great and the breakfast (whichI think they serve until about1200)is amazing. It is also a favorite with FCPDand VA State Troopers. It's not uncommon to see three or more squad cars parked out front.

    Sounds like we all need to go introduce ourselves to VA Patriot at his place of work, eh?

    I'll at church on Sundays, but if you needtires, an oil change, brakes, an alignment or just about any other regular maintenance done on yourvehicle,by all means come on by Merchant's Tire and Auto Center. I'm there from 0700-1500 Mon-Tues and Thur-Sat, and I would be happy to work on your car or truck.

    well using my super detective work I think I can safely say that VApatriot and I could have possibly spoken in the past. I stopped by there before.

    Count myself and Mrs. ChinChin in on the festivites. Fair warning, at 11:30 on a sunday morning the place is PUH*ACKED! Lots of churchy-la fems grabing a meal after services, lots of little old bluehairs.

    Wear warm clothing, we'll be waiting outside for a table for just a little bit.

    Just spoke with the Mgr. and he stated we could call ahead about 15-20 and they would hold tables for us, however we would need a accurate head count.

    Mr. ChinChin
    Mrs. ChinChin

    As much as I'd like to be there, it's not likely. We'll have to have another dinner scheduled here, I'd love to check it out.

    Will see you all next weekend at Foster's Grille.

    Sorry for not posting earlier. I just called and reserved a table for 10. I think that should cover us. See you all there!

    I totally forgot about this.
