    We occasionally have OC dinners up here in Lynchburg so feel free to come along. Lately they've been last minute gatherings of those of us who already know each other, but we can probably do something a bit more formal so others from out of town or not already known to some of us can join in.

    Ha! I didn't mean formal as in getting dressed up or I wouldn't be there myself. I meant formal planning as in laying out a time and place more than perhaps a day in advance with some of the folks we already know up here. Heck we've probably met every month since our last formally planned dinner, but it just hasn't been posted here. We'll let you know when we've got something up next!

    ElevenBravo, glad to see you've joined the site!

    I've met jmelvin before at an OC dinner I hosted at the Olive Garden, he made the drive down for me, so I was planning on making the drive for a dinner up there with him sometime. Maybe we can all get something going soon. I've got three other possibles that might make the trip.

    I'm at Ft. Bragg, but I make the drive up to VA on some weekends. I won't be able to make the Famous A's dinner since it's during the week, but weekends are a go...

    So if you wanted to carpool or something just let me know. PM me and I'll give you my phone number...Same for you jmelvin...



    Oh, and watch that knife cutting edge in your avatar...put someone's eye out with that thing...haha.

    I'm around, I've just been keeping a low profile lately. Also my two little girls are taking up a great deal of my otherwise free time and money, so I haven't been getting out much. I probably wouldn't be able to do a restaurant given my current constraints. I'd be more amenable to a summertime hot dog cookout in the park type of thing; it's less expensive, and my older girl can run around to her heart's content instead of being stuck in a chair.

    Im thinking of doing something like that this July, a wienie roast of sorts. Ill bring the grill and dogs, and the guest can bring the assorted accessories like ketchup and buns and plates.

    Well, something like that anyway....
