    Mention Open Carry in Restaurant Reviews

    When I'm eating out with friends, I'm always worried that some restaurant is going to ask me to leave for open carrying. To avoid this hassle, I'm proposing that OC members who write restaurant reviews (on yelp.com, urbanspoon.com or anything similar) include a quick comment about whether the restaurant is open carry friendly or unfriendly.

    Besides helping other OC'ers it also spreads the word on OC. People reading restaurant reviews will learn about OC and the more reviews they see talking about OC will remind them how common place and natural it is. Win, win!

    I usually write something like this, "They were open carry friendly. The hostess clearly saw my handgun and didn't say anything." It explains open carry without making a bid deal about it.

    Being an avid Yelper myself, this is an interesting suggestion. I just might include this in some upcoming yelps.

    I am going to Olive Garden tomorrow night (164th and Mill Plain in Vancouver). Anyone OC here? I am nervous about OCing in a restaurant, but I'm gonna do it!

    I have never at Olive Garden (because I don't like their food) but I have at many other restruants with no issues. I always refrain from even a single beer if I OC.

    IIRC, Olive Garden is OC-hostile. Check the Do Not Patronize list (which doesn't seem to have survived the forum move... )

    I've heard Olive Garden has no firearms signs posted and/or they have corporate policy against carrying firearms on the property.

    Took my son to the spage,,, spegett,,,, spehg,,,,, noodle factory in Seattle for his birthday last week, no problems there. I cant recommend the Lasagna though. It tasted like Stouffers, out of Wal-Marts freezer section. We had to ask for the free bread too.

    Completely irrelevant, but I think I just laughed my arse off.

    Thanks for the update. It's raining like cats and dogs here anyways, and I don't OC in the rain. I will check when I get there to see if there are any signs.
