    I'm going to be in the area this weekend visiting family, and I'll be making a side trip Saturday afternoon to help a female friend pick out her new home-defense shotgun. As is tradition any time I'm in NoVa, I will be grabbing lunch at Anita's, and since my friend lives in Fairfax, it will be at the Anita's at 10880 Lee Highway. I'd LOVE to meet some of you NoVa folks.

    If you're interested in an OC lunch, and some great New Mexican food in an OC-friendly restaurant, then let's see if we can get something together on Saturday, 14 November!
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    I was thinking that's the one at the west end of Chantilly next to the three Pohanka car dealers, but I see that it's not. It's down in the heart of business Fairfax (actually called Kamp Washington) real close to a Hampton Inn motel. Right?

    I would like to come and should be able to make it if you know what time to put this together.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    She used to wait on me at the "original" Vienna location back in the late 70's

    Wow, that is a shame. I used to live in Burke right around the corner from Anita's. I was thrilled when they openned one in Stafford. Had their breakfast burritos to go yesterday morning!



    I've OC'd in several of their restaurants over the years. Got some :what:from other patrons on occaision, but never a word from the staff or management.


    Edit.... Oh, did I mention I'm addicted to the Hollenbeck!

    I'll try to see if can swing by for lunch.

    Like Ed, I've eaten at Anita's ever since they opened their first restaurant in Vienna.

    Remind me to tell you my "don't eat the mints" story. :shock:

    So is this thing a go, who's going for sure, and what time is it suppose to go down?

    I am bailing. No "good" date/time/details/rsvp, etc. Better luck next time with a more detailed invite.

    I'm still good to go, but the OP seems to be MIA. Want to just arbitrarily say 1:00PM?

    Do you think this is too late to get something going? Who else is willing to go with it?

    Ok, thanks for getting back. I was going start heading out here in about 15 minutes.

    Okay, so I'll have to tell my Anita's mint story here.

    As those of you who eat there know, they keep a bowl of unwrapped after-dinner mints out.

    Sometimes they put a plastic spoon in them so folks don't dig around with their hands.

    So I was at the original Anita's in Vienna with a date, and we closed the place down.

    We were sitting there talking as the bus boys finished their work.

    One of them walked up to the bowl of mints, got a spoonful, put it in his mouth like he was eating cereal, then shoved the spoon back in the mints!

    This was me.:what:

    This was my date. :shock:

    Yummy, huh?
