    Has anyone OC'd here since they opened? I have heard they have good food but havent heard if they are OC friendly or not.

    I wouldnt mind being the test subject, just curious if anyone has gone there yet.

    Time to find out what kind of friend he really is...

    If it goes well that might be a good location to do an OC dinner! Particularly if the food is good.

    So what did your friend have to say?

    I am interested in hearing what the response was too. That's not far from my house even though I live southside.

    Unfortunately the one time I went there, I wanted to sample a couple of the adult beverages they have. So, I didn't carry. I am curious to see what others say. The food was pretty good if you like "traditional" English food. The atmosphere was pretty cool too.

    Any news? Ask your friend if he wants 15-25 people visiting his establishment for an OC dinner. :-) I would definitely be up for an OC dinner there, soon too.

    Im guessing in this case, no news is bad news. (or he didntget around to asking) might have to just try it out, see what happens.

    Why is everyone wanting to ask permission to OC at this restaurant? We've never done this before and shouldn't start now!

    Just go and have dinner their while OC'ing. You'll find out the establishments' position on OC real quick.

    I agree, Craig. I believe it puts the owner/manager "on the spot" and tests his ability to think on his feet. Its a good idea to show up with many people so he can see how much $$$ he is going to lose when he makes a silly decision based upon his "feelings" not facts of life.

    ODA, we arent trying to ask for permission. I simply asked if anyone had OC'd there yet and since WarDragon knows one of the owners he said hewould ask what their policy is, if any.

    The wife and I might go there this weekend, if we do I will OC.

    Hey ODA, there is a Lasermax discussion going on in the holsters and accessories section. Thought you might have an opinion to share.

    I won't be baited into that Thundar! Everyone here knows my opinion of lasers and how they are an integral part of the gay community!

    +1.

    Unless its a laser-designator, its not a good idea. Lasers (like flashlights) work both ways...:shock:
