    Another group with which I'm associated is planning a gathering at Auld Shebeen <http://www.theauldshebeenva.com/new/> tavern in Fairfax City next week. Does anyone know if I'll be o.k. there, or if I'd expect to be asked to leave and so should decline ?

    TIA

    Why not go by yourself BEFORE the event and have lunch?

    Their website has loud music which offends. I'd decline upon that factoid alone!

    I've open carried there on numerous occasions and nobody has ever said anything. Not sure what they'd do with a group of OC'ers. If you're the only one OC'ing, they probably won't even notice.

    Try coming by for lunch or dinner sometime before your get together and see what happens.

    Never had loud music any of the times I've been there, either.

    I'll take care of the live bands and adult beverages for you (not carrying obviously)

    Sounds like a great venue, but the idea of going to an Irish pub and not being able to have a few "points" of Guinness or Murphys with my fish and chips would just bum me out...
    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."

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I've OC'd there before, but I'm not sure anyone noticed.
    If you choose not to OC there (or if they choose to refuse your business), the Thai place right next door Courtside Thai has the best Thai food in the States, a great outdoor atmosphere, and are always welcoming when I OC there.
