    So, as is, there will be no need to call to reserve more space, but if more than 6 or eight want to show, I'll need to know sooner rather than later... if you intend to show for this open carry lunch please let me know ASAP.

    Great turn out, 9 people attended. The Black Bear's staff was great. Some of the customers were a bit surprised; one guy couldn't take his eyes off Tread's piece the whole time he ate. But hey perhaps some of them who saw us will go buy a holster and be a little more inclined to Open Carry the firearm that has sat in their night stand for years.

    Anyone want to volunteer to arrange the next lunch meet-up? Just remember that it's typically the first Saturday of the month, which puts the next lunch meet-up on May 7th.

    Lunch was fun, I think BJs sounded like a good idea. They have really good food there and its right off the 215 so its easy to get to.

    Possible location for next month.

    I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but I am good friends with a guy who owns a sushi restaurant. Not sure how everyone else feels about sushi but it is really good food there. They also have an amazing pork cutlet and chicken teriyaki. If this sounds good to everyone let me know and I can get him to hold some tables for us.

    Supporting friendly buisnesses is a good idea, but finding a buisness who we are not sure of and showing them open carry is ok makes a good impact. If its not ok we can add them to our no go list and hit their wallet is better.

    About the only place I can think of like that, is Famous Dave's or Memphis BBQ.

    But if you do get a pretty big response for Sushi. Don't let me stop you guys.

    There is a small place called Hog Heaven off 215/durango that has great pulled pork. Its a small place with a small selection but very good. I OC'd there a few time with no issue, but don't really know the staff all that well. Famous Dave's has awesome brisket so I am down for that one.

    I am not the sushi typ either but I do not mind just showing up and drinking a beverage.... I like famouse daves etc. I also like the idea of trying new (local) places It is much harder for a proprietor to turn away 1 dozen hungry people than 1-2

    I say we try to avoid large chain eateries. I know there are other Black bear Diners and it's technically a "franchise," but not on a large scale. This is our way of rewarding small businesses with our business and our dollars when they support our rights. This is not to say that large franchises don't support our rights, but supporting our local mom and pops have other benefits as well. Competition may force a business like BWW to look more closely at their policy that might have cost them a group of 10 or so people from spending their coin in their business.

    A little higher on the price side. But our favorite steakhouse is the Ranch House. Out in the middle of nowhere on the NW side. Very old school. Family owned.
