    LANSING: Michigan Open Carry, Inc. Dinner at Aldaco - 14 Oct 2011@19:00 (7 PM)

    Please join Michigan Open Carry, Inc. for a dinner at Aldaco in Lansing, MI
    Date: 14 Oct 2011
    Time: 19:00 (7:00 PM)


    Directions:

    1. Get off I-96 at the Cedar/Pennsylvania Street exit.
    2. Turn Left at the Stop light at the bottom of the exit ramp.
    3. Turn right at the Second Driveway (Aldaco is the Red building with the whitish strip)


    Ruben Aldaco, the owner, is enthusiastic about having us and welcomes us gun carriers with open arms. He has promised a discount if we have a sizable group of 15-20+.

    Ruben does ask that if you attend, you buy something to eat. Apparently, he's had a problem with group(s) in the past coming in and taking up room in his side-room of his restaurant. Dozens would show up -- but only 3 or so would eat. I assured him our goal is to financially support the businesses that host us.

    Food Genre: Mexican (good stuff, had it myself many times)
    Style: Menu or Buffet (Dinner Buffet is $9ish before any discounts)


    Please join me and others in Michigan Open Carry in enjoying dinner in Lansing. You needn't be a Michigan Open Carry member to come. No alcohol is served at Aldaco, so that won't be an issue for us.

    Please RSVP in this thread so I can notify Ruben how many will be attending!

    ADDRESS IS IN THE LINK ABOVE!!

    This is great to get such an early response at 2 AM! I'm sure tomorrow will bring even more RSVPs. Thank you guys!

    They say Lansing is an Open Carry Dead Zone. Are they right? I think not!

    I'll be carrying open.

    I'll let some others know about this as well. They do not visit here and currently only CC. Maybe this will help change their minds. I've already given them tri-folds and copies of MSP 86.

    If you can get me a good estimate on the number attending the week before, Ruben would appreciate it.

    I think I can finally make an event... so count me in for one if I'm not too late.

    Excellent. I'm glad to see so many people turn out for Lansing. We're still taking RSVPs. I'll be giving Ruben a rough head count early next week, but it's never too late to jump in!
