    New place for Jan Open Carry Dinner

    http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie...D4--yQW2zvGXDg A little family ran BBQ joint in Chester. I have OC there a couple times with no trouble. Seems to be a good place to eat.

    I love Sibleys, but ....

    Yeah, there is always that "but".

    Parking is almost non-existent. There is not enough room (usually) to get a group of 8, let alone the numbers good BBQ might bring out. It's too far South for the folks who hate driving outside Chippenham Parkway/288. (OK, it's not really that far outside 288.)

    That's the problem of being popular - we can get too many folks for the good/great places to be able to accommodate us.

    That being said, I think it would be worth the effort to try having a dinner there just to see if we could pull it off.

    stay safe.

    Sibley's has great food, better people, and I've Oc'd there with no problems, but Peter's right, parking is non-existent.

    Why not do both?

    Is there a rule there's only one per month?

    Nope, never has been. In fact that has been encouraged several times in the past.

    Even If there was such a rule some rules are made to be broken.

    Who are you trying to convince Peter or Paul? When I posted the thread all that crossed my mind. I figured what the hell let's give it a try.

    My appologies to both of you, I was posting from my phone and seem to have been mistaken about the username I'd read before posting my reply.

    Mea Culpa good sirs....

    Sibley's has GREAT BBQ! Been a while, but I do seem to remember parking is tight. Get there early!
