    Potbelly's in Lake Geneva. Are they OC friendly?

    We're meeting another couple for dinner their. If they are OC friendly I will carry, other wise I won't to not cause a hassle for the other people.

    Have others carried their without issue?

    In case their is more then one; this is the Potbelly's on the main street next to Caribou Coffee.

    Never heard of the place. I believe that is Nik's old stomping grounds maybe he can answer your question on that.

    I don't know if it's OC friendly or not, but why would following the law be harrassing people?

    Did you carry there? How was it?

    I did not carry there. I will try open carrying their when I'm not meeting people for dinner and discussion in a restaurant they like. I'll test the waters out with old friends that didn't have to drive 2 hours for dinner and conversation


    I'll post back if their are any issues.

    I have carried at Potbelly's in Brookfield many times with no problems.

    Assume all places are OC friendly unless it's prohibited by law, or a posted SIGN or MANAGER informs you otherwise. If an employee comes up to inform you that you cannot carry, it is reasonable to ask for clarification from a manager as in many cases the rank and file employee doesn't know what they are talking about. Carry whenever you can, whenever you can, when you are in public. And never ask permission from anyone in the place, as it is a better than 50% chance they will tell you "no".

    Does not matter if you are on private property. It only matters if you are walking on the sidewalk or roadway.

    That's why I asked here first. It wasn't worth risking ruining the evening. I'll try carrying there another time
