    a) I don't think they do breakfast
    b) It wasn't the restaurant that was the problem.

    Another reason for going to this IHOP is that the station where my friend the motorcycle cop is assigned is just a mile or so away. I'll let him know, & invite them to come visit.

    George Webb does serve pancakes too, as long as we don't go to Sussex.

    Actually, there's a Dells IHOP thing on 12/4 and the Delavan Starbucks on 12/5. Delafield is 12/12. I would like to come to your event I just can't on those 3 days and Sunday mornings are generally out for me.

    How about SAT the 18th?
    Also, if we want to tempt fate, I found reference to a place called "The Original Pancake House" which is at 164th & Bluemound (between Calhoun & Moorland) in Brookfield. (Hey, we'll have lots of witnesses! Everybody bring your favorite piece of recording equipment.)

    Reviews seem to be good, better than IHOP, so if they're OK with setting aside a place for a small group, plus having armed customers, I think this looks good.

    Prices are mostly between $6 - 9 for entrees, & they have QUITE a selection.

    I am good with both the date and the place! I would assume we would have to give a head count though.

    OK... finally used the brains god gave a kumquat & added a poll.
    (RETEST!!*)
    I'm leaning toward the 18th in Brookfield, given of course that they can & will accomodate us.


    *Extra points if you can identify the organization to which I'm referring.

    Cudahy might not prone ya out but they sure do like to use cuffs and waste your time.

    As for the date and location I really cant answer. Depends on the mood of the State and if they decide to cut me an unemployment check.

    Then they'd be fighting an uphill battle.

    The Sussex Webbs has a small sign INSIDE, next to the register. You'd have to really be looking for it in order to see it.

    When we were out there at the Chinese buffet Webbs had a piece of paper on their door saying something like "yes it's your right, but we don't want it here". Big bold type. I went & stood at the door, hoping to talk with an employee or manager about it, and nobody would come talk with me.

    They've since removed the sign outside, same with the tanning salon. I have no idea if the tanning salon has one inside though, but there are no signs on the outside.

    Did anyone mention a time to meet? I scanned the thread a couple times, but I didn't see one.

    Don't know whether or not I can make it. We have a meeting in Big Bend at 1:00 on the 18th, but that leaves plenty of time to get there afterward. Problem is, I may or may not be out late the night before, so if it's not until 11-ish the chances increase. Anyone up for brunch?

    Delafield? Johnson Creek is 12/12, is that what you were referring to Paul?

    What times would we be talking about?

    OK... here's the deal

    I scouted out the place today (er, um, had brunch) & found it quite acceptable: generous portions (other than OJ, which is delicious & fresh-squeezed, but pricey), friendly staff, decent prices, adequate parking, no schools nearby, etc.

    After I ate I talked with the manager about scheduling a small party. She said normally they don't take reservations on weekends because they're SO very very busy, but we talked it over and agreed that if our group can be there at 08:30 they'll make an exception.

    Yeah, I know it's early. I asked for 9, she wanted 8. We compromised. They have a 1.5 hour time limit on weekends. (See above, about being busy, then add that this will be the Saturday before Christmas & we're across the street from a mall.)

    I did let her know we're a group of civil rights activists focussing on gun rights, and that most of us would be armed. Her main concern was that we not do anything that would reasonably be expected to alarm other customers. (Sensible position, IMHO.)

    So: NO long guns and guns stay in their holsters. (Yeah, I know, preaching to the choir. But there's always a first time.)

    And given the history of open carry interactions with the Brookfield PD, I suggest people bring their favorite piece of portable recording equipment... to share over breakfast. Yeah, that's it. Share.

    I did point out that I was armed, and had created no disturbance when I came in, nor while I ate. Also gave her contact info for Lizzie's and the Delavan Starbuck's, and though she took it she said she probably wouldn't call them. I guess that's a good thing.

    I need to email her a head count by next Wed. the 1st. Tentatively, I told her probably 12 to 20 people.
    So far (SAT 26NOV), this seems to be the cast of characters:
    Me
    McX
    Paul
    Protias (better?) :P
    RangeRat
    GlockMeisterG21

    Please post here or PM me to be added to the count.

    SAT 18DEC, 08:30-10:00

    The address is:
    16460 W Bluemound Rd.
    Brookfield, WI
    53005-5908
    (262) 797-0800

    Take 94 to Moorland Rd.
    Exit going north.
    Turn left / west on Bluemound. (You'll be bending around Brookfield Square Mall, which is a defense-free zone.)
    Get into the right lane.
    Just after the first light, you'll see Ruf Rd. on the right (north).
    There's a large red sign for a furniture store, and under it is a white sign for the pancake house.
    Turn there, then make an immediate left into the parking lot.
    The restaurant is a white house that's close to Bluemound. Entrance is on the side away from the road.
