    Following the rotation our next meeting is in the west end, I guess that includes short pump, insbrook, etc. If anyone knows a good place speak up. Keep in mind that it does not have to be a place to eat; bookshops, coffee shops and the like are also good ideas.

    West End = Sushi Go Around!!!!!

    I doubt everyone here likes Sushi though, plus it's kinda small. We could hit up Capital Alehouse and see who the beer snobs are! We could always go to Tony's favorite place, Super King Buffet!

    Food courts are a good idea, lots o'room and lots o'choices. I do like Super King Buffet though, although its pricey.

    That's a great idea!

    Yeah, I used to like Super King (they are crazy expensive though).

    Dang! Why didn't we think of the Food Court idea before? That's AWESOME!!!

    You can get fries from great Steak and Fry, and some General's Chicken, and a taco... Oh the choices are endless. YAY!!!




    Capitol Ale house is a LOT of fun but if we had a larger group would there be a place for us?

    I said it last year and I will say it this year. While I agree that a food related place is not necessary, I think that the "dinner" thing really helps make everyone comfortable. Just one of them deals, and I ain't saying that just because I like to go out to eat. ;)

    It's just a fancy name for the west end of Richmond...

    11800 West Broad Street
    Richmond, VA 23233

    That's the address to Short Pump Town Center (mall).

    Why even bother giving her directions? Just tell her to look for the snobbiest thing she can find that looks like a mall and she's there!..... actually she'd be at Stony Point, but still! I don't mind the food court idea, especially since I'm sure with our usual loudness and show-and-tell....ness...... that we'd get a lot of attention, and MAN do I love attention!

    Oh and just so everyone knows, I'm turning into one of those armor snobs like "that guy" (not naming any names here) with the republic commando armor =(

    I blame "him" for this.....

    Brilliant! (Insert Guiness commercial here)


    The Food court is a great idea, shouldn't be a problem with space.
    Bringing weapons/props however for "show and tell" might be an issue.
    Definately a great idea!

    Tony, for a local you don't know S#!T about Richmond.

    Short Pump was a small town before the Goochland County Line. It was most famous for the Garage with the Cessna crashed in to the roof at the corner of Broad and Pump Rd. There was also the kick @$$ burger joint that had this "Mammoth Burger". Nowadays it is just a another wasted piece of land that buttheads insisted on developing because people are too lazy to drive more then 2 miles anywhere.

    Maybe that's what it USED to be...but not anymore. Fine, it's a fancy and historical name for part of the west end of Richmond... :rolleyes:

    Sorry - I am not a person that identifies with where I grew up. Everything I needed was in Mechanicsville - no need for the city or any other part of Richmond.

    Yeah, I cant believe Tony has such limited knowledge about history & folklore around here. I was out at the Watts House yesterday over at Gaines Mill walking the trails for a little peace. Now I know you know all about that area!
    Why O Why have we not done a food court before? There's a mall on each side of town and they're easily accessible by interstate. Luke, you're brilliant for a guy that wears glasses. Simply superb!
    Yes, we must now hold meetings at these places. Ample space, Ample choice and who knows, maybe someone will see us and wanna join. We gotta do some food courts. Short Pump, Virginia Center Commons, Chesterfield Mall, Southpark Mall. man that makes it easy.

    What's Gaines Mill? I thought that was Troys kitchen wheat grinding appliance.

    Can I bring the canned laughter that we'll need for any jokes you're thinking of telling? (I love you too!)

    This was probably the worst attempt at a joke ever......
