    I wrote this on the Open Carry in Prince William County thread this morning. Just thought it might be a good idea for some folks living in the area who have not had the opportunity to come to one of these events. Anyone who has comments about which Saturday or where to do this is welcome to respond.

    What say.. should we do this?





    How 'bout this. For those who live in the Manassas/Western Prince William County area, what say to a Saturday lunch in the Gainesville area? I don't have any favorite places but I'll just throw out some names for kicks and in no particular order.

    Glory Days in Somerset

    Foster's Grill in Haymarket

    Cracker Barrel in Manassas

    El Tio's in Virginia Gateway (Gainesville)

    Brooklyn Pizza in Gainesville (west)

    Casa Chimaya in Manassas

    Backyard Grill in Manassas



    Sound like an idea?? Obviously, anyone on this forum should feel free to come, but since there appears to be a number of us out in this part of the county, I thought it might not be a bad idea.

    I'm up for a Saturday lunch.
    Unfortunately on 7/25 I have a prior commitment and on 8/1 I'll be driving back from MD.
    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 can do weekends after 8/1. Sundays are much better for me. All locations listed are good though...

    Ok, would a Sunday be better for everyone? It doesn't matter to me as I can go for either day.

    No offense, but herding cats is easier. Just pick a place, a time and post it.

    +1. Though herding cats isn't nearly as bad as one might think.

    Ok, based upon ed's suggestion, how about Saturday, August 8. Now for suggestions as to where this might be held and when.

    What about 11:45 (time was significant to some) for the time. As for the place, I'll throw out these for starters in no particular order of preference.

    Foster's Grill, any location in the area

    Glory Days, Somerset (Gainesville area)

    Casa Chimayo, Manassas

    I was kinda hoping to have this at a place from Manassas westward if possible. Would this be a problem for you?

    I have to check with the better half tonight but this seems fun. My vote would be Fosters but I'm game for anything.

    Just need time/location/directions from Dumfries.

    I'm down for the 8th at the Glory Days on Somerset (or anywhere really but the G-Days is closest hehe)

    11:45 sounds good... a little earlier than I'm used to waking up on a saturday but I'll manage. and I might coax a friend or two to tag along...

    I suppose we should pick a place. I would vote for, in no particular order, Glory Days in either Manassas or Somerset, or Foster's in Manassas or Haymarket.

    What say? Can we solidify this? Any other suggestions?

    You can put me down as a maybe, too - depending on where we go. I'd be up for trying Foster's (never been to one - been to Glory Days, though). Or whatever. As long as they serve tea and food, I'm good.
