    Here's some additional information on finding the Green Parrot Grille. If you are using either North Hampton Blvd or Shore Drive to get there, you must make a LEFT onto Pleasure House Road and follow it to the end, then make a RIGHT onto Lookout Road and follow to the Green Parrot Grille on theLEFT.

    My wife & I should be there. We just need to get confirmation from our babysitter that she can watch the kids.

    We'd bring the kids with us but having 4 children out and about is a bit trying at times. I'd rather keep the commotion onour 1st open carryouting to a dull roar.

    Besides, it's cheaper to have our sitter watch the kids than it is to pay for the kids todine out.

    Hey, I got into a rollover right by there.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    We had 18 people make it to the Open Carry Dining Out tonight. A really great place to eat, super food, great waitresses, and the proprietor stopped by several times and asked us to please come back. The Green Parrot Grille is definitely two thumbs up!!!

    Wish I could have made it! I had to take a Criminal Justice midterm with a girl that I like from my class, so I guess it turned out well for me

    Thanks for the after-action reports, guys.

    I really wish I could make it to more of these.

    Yep. Good time was had. Got to talk with a couple of folks and learned quite a bit about current happenings and things to watch out for. Also got to hear some 'tales from the trenches' with regards to different experiences with local government and law enforcement agencies.

    My wife & I had a great time and hope to make the next one.

    The only issue (minor one at that)we had was on our way into the restaurant a lady sitting in the open air patio insisted we could not legally carry our guns into the restaurant; that it was against VA law. She went on to cite that her brother-in-law who works as a bouncer can't carry a gun at the bar he works in. I pointed out to her that VA state law says otherwise and that she may want re-read it. I also told her that if she felt that strongly about it, to take it to the management / owners of the restaurant.

    After that, I told her to have a good evening.

    Yea, unfortunately there are still a LOT of sheep out there!!! They don't know the law, but they're quick to tell you their version....you did a great job....and Laurie (the proprietor) said she spoke to those nay-sayers and told them we were welcome in her place anytime!!! I think Jean & I are going back Sunday morning for breakfast!!!

    Bump for "darthmord" but now I'm really confused - why the other post if you've posted here already?
