    Tidewater June OC Dinner - BD Mongolian Grill - Hampton 6/8/11 7pm

    http://www.gomongo.com/locations/loc...ils.php?loc=39

    bd's Mongolian Grill
    3530 Von Schilling
    Hampton VA 23666
    (757) 262-1283

    7pm Wednesday June 8th

    I have been meaning to schedule a dinner here for a while and finally got around to it. They have a selection of meats and veggies that you choose from in your bowl and alot of different sauces to add. Once you create your bowl you take it up to the cooks and watch it cooked. You can get one bowl for a one time trip which is usually enough for me or unlimited for a bit more for several trips to the grill.

    Hopefully 1000ydshooter can join us and tell us what its like to be literally in the middle of nowhere for a while. :-)

    ETA: One thing about BD's is that if you don't like the food it is your own fault since you chose the ingredients and sauces. So usually it is pretty darn good. :-) The cooking is fun to watch too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRlj5vjp3Ko

    Can't make it :-(

    I plan on one for July, then hopefuly I can talk about it.
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    I should be able to make that. I work in Norfolk, and don't get off til 6. Getting home in NN and over to Hampton by 7 is going to be cutting it short. Will most likely come to just hang out as its not really my taste in food, but we'll see.

    Well since you are always deployed it isn't a conspiracy! :-)

    You can schedule a dinner when you are NOT deployed. If you get deployed between the time you schedule the dinner and it happens, then it is probably a conspiracy!



    Chammer you can come straight from work to save time.

    Headcount

    Ok so here is how the headcount looks:

    1....45acpForMe
    2....1000ydshooter
    1....chammer
    1....kimbercarrier
    0....wolf-father (probably not)
    -------------------------------
    5 for now

    They have lots of room so there is no need for any reservation (unless our party was going to be over 20-30). I'll get to the restaurant about 15 minutes early and be out front. If you show up late just look for a table with holstered guns (or ask the hostess where the gun table is) :-)

    For anyone that hasn't been there before, BD's faces Target so you can park anywhere between the two.

    So what is your headcount? 2,3? It doesn't matter much just if I get there early I can tell them we need a table for 8 or so.

    For OC info cards send "Ed" a self addressed stamped envelope with two stamps and he will mail you some cards. He is updating the card for the changes this year.

    I was thinking that there's some nonzero probability that I could be there. So I tried to find the place. What I discovered is that the address given appears to be a mailing address - the website link shows a map that places it North of Mercury Blvd., which doesn't appear to go through Hampton at all. Which means it could be anywhere served by the Hampton P.O. Very frustrating. It's hard to get Mongolian BBQ by mail.

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    It is actually pretty easy to find. There is a Target right by Mercury and I64. BD's is on the far (north) side of Target's parking lot facing Target. There is also a Five Guys and Chipotle a bit closer to Target as well as a few other restaurants.

    So if you exit Mercury (towards Hampton, not NN) turn left on Coliseum Drive and left on Von Schilling (through a stop sign or two for pedestrian traffic) it is on the right (park across the street). The map has jcpenney (wrongly) on the Target building on Kilgore Ave.

    I may not be there after all. I'm having to do maintenance in our server environment during the 3-6am window we have so I will need to be in bed by 9pm at the latest. So I may not show this evening, however, if I do I won't be able to stay for very long.

    Nice to see everyone

    Had a good time talking.

    Welcome back to civilization 1000, and glad chammer was able to make it.

    The service was a bit slow but gave us time to talk.

    Now to digest...... Eyes getting heavy...... Stomache gurgling.......

    Sorry you're not here to enjoy our 'cool' weather, Brother. I bet momma is enjoying that Civilian-Style Family Separation Allowance (FSA), though. Sure helps pay the bills.

    Be careful out there, Brother.
