NoVA Blogmeet update

11/21 is not going to happen. 12/5 is my next available date. Yes, groupies can attend (groupie of whom?), and Wai you are welcome to come down.

I traded correspondence with the CEO of the company that owns Sweetwater Tavern. A very good exchange, but the bottom line is no carrying in the restaurant due to policy. Should we look elsewhere, or press on?

Still more questions than answers...

I need feedback from attendees.

Pax,

Lets look elsewhere- I'm okay for the 5th.

I'm OK for the fifth. I get off work at 4PM (in downtown DC).

I might be able to make the 5th. MBtGE turns 50 that day.

I/we will be at the Gun Show in Chantilly on the 20th, too.

I'm up for this. I'd say find somewhere else.

And I prefer Sweetwater Tavern. I intend to enjoy a beer, so I won't be carrying, at any rate.

Turk Turon said...

A beer sounds good! And in Va., one can't carry (open or concealed) and tipple. This isn't Indiana. Sadly. So I'm up for either open carry/no drinking at Champs or no carry/drinking at Sweetwater.

Old NFO said...

Either or for me also...

Heard about this over at Tam's VFTP. You accepting non-bloggers? The December 5th I can make. How does one recognize folks?

Wai said...

I can make the 5th. Just give me a time and a place to meet up with guys. Unfortunately for me, I won't be armed.

12/5 works for me. I live in MD, so I have no real preference as to venue.

Old NFO said...

Lets go with Sweetwater and no carry, that way we can enjoy a beer. I'm assuming we're talking the one in Sterling, right? And about 6pm? Since Turk has to work, that would be the right time for him to make it. That way we get a couple of hours, and people still can get home at a reasonable hour.

Sweetwater Tavern in Sterling at 6PM on Saturday December the 5th. I'm putting it on my calendar.

My family traditionally goes and gets our Christmas tree the first Saturday in December, so I'm only a maybe but I'd love to head down if I'm free.

Newbius said...

Agreed. Sweetwater Tavern in Sterling (not Centreville) at 6:00 PM on 12/5/09. So far, it looks like 12-15 people.

As for groupies/non-bloggers...I am OK with it. My hope is that we can get to know each other, and continue to promote Liberty and 2nd Amendment issues.

Bring a designated driver!

I won't be able to make it.
