    Time for the Strip again.

    The days are getting warmer and you know what that means. Time for another daytime OC meet up on the Strip before it gets to hot for the day.

    I plan on parking at Bill's on Flamingo and LV Blvd. So let's meet out in front at 11:00am on May 21st.

    Ditto. I can find out in the next day or two if I can be available. It's been way too long.

    I can't get the day off. Working two jobs is really a drag.

    Well, it turns out only Sabotage and I made it out, but it wasn't a lost cause. We took the Duce up to Freemon Street without incident. On the return, the monitor and a drive who was taking a rest break saw that we were carrying and said "hey, guys with guns ride free!" The monitor asked if we were police officers. I said, we were private citizens, but we'll keep you safe. She actually said, "Hey, I feel safer when there are guys with guns around."

    We had lunch at the Golden Gate's Coffee shop, Got a few remarks from passers buy, but this was a positive outing.

    I would have been there however; 140-mile round trip and I do ware the pants in our house that is if my wife lets me. I was unable to make this one. Good to see once again Golden Gate allowed you to have lunch. I was thinking the first time we had dinner with the open carry group at Golden Gate we were just lucky. Looks like Golden Gate will allow us in. Last time we were there, I did walk through the small casino and no one said anything. They have a great Shrimp cocktail if I am ever in the area may try one while open carrying.

    I'm game if you want company to try open carry at the Golden Gate craps table. They deal a really good game -- $3 pass line with 10x odds. Their 21 game is usually acceptable, although not the best in town.

    I practice concealed carry when going casino hopping, but I have stopped twice there to play when open carrying. Got no comments, although I did think security wandered by/around my table more than I typically notice.

    I play regularly at their craps table. Maybe they (a) cut just me some slack as a regular, (b) the dealers were blind-eye reasonable just on those shifts, or (c) they were all unobservant like most folks.

    I'm Okay for a weekend (when it only goes up to a $5 table, which ain't bad), but they might be more open minded on a weekday when they are hungrier for our business. I'm retired, so most anytime you're in town is good. Might get bounced, of course, third time is not always the charmed. I'll toss the dealers my club card to make them feel better about us.

    I have their club coupons for a free shrimp cocktail and a $15 meal comp good for June or July we can share. You're right about their coffee shop being pretty good, one of the better ones around. Priorities: eat first, get trespassed second.

    Hey all, this is my first post. Looking forward to getting more involved in the OC environment (time permitting). I'll be sure to pay attention to when you guys go back out!

    On the first Saturday of every month we have fairly successfully been gathering at a local eatery for lunch. Check the forum about 5 days prior for the when and where.
