Original post here, first update here.
We've got a time (Saturday, February 1st).
We have a general location (Manassas, VA).
We have a reason to get together before the dinner (Gun show!)
All we need now is a specific time and location. I'm thinking 6 PM to start getting together (since the gun show ends at 5) and the location somewhere in Manassas.
Now, personally, I like the name of this restaurant (plus I'm a sucker for Italian food, go figure), but I have no idea if it's any good or not. Anyone local know anything about this place? TripAdvisor has decent reviews and the prices aren't terrible (~ $20 for a meal). It's also about 5 miles from the gun show, so anyone going to the show will be able to get there quick.
Unless anyone has a better suggestion, I'll call and see if we can make a reservation for ~ 20 people. Here's the list of attendees based on previous comments:
OldNFO & special guest
Heath & A.
Laura and Chris
PA State Cop
Let me know (in comments, please) ASAP if your name is on this list and shouldn't be or if your name should be on this list and isn't.
Also, let me know if there are any strenuous objections to the restaurant - or if there's a better place in Manassas or nearby. There's a ton of inexpensive hotels in the area for those that are traveling a distance. If we can settle on a location by the end of this week, I'll make arrangements for a couple dozen of us for dinner.
Who's in for a winter NoVA blogmeet?
That is all.
