Since it is a small place, you don’t think there will be any issue if we hang and talk for while do you?
I told them we would plan to stay until around 10:00 and they said they were fine with that.

Everyone should plan to be a little early or on time. I suspect they won't let us hold empty seats for very long.

They said as long as you keep buying coffee, you can talk as long as you like. :mrgreen:

Looking forward to meeting a lot of folks I haven't got to meet yet. If they kick us out, we can just comandeer their parking lot, and threaten bad reviews. :evil2:

I'll bet we will be a novelty, and will have a lot of people curious as to our intentions. It will give us an opportunity to spread the LTC gospel, and show that we are not crazed gun nuts.

The staff member I spoke to said the first time someone came in while OCing they were a little surprised, but they got used to it real quick.

I plan on showing up for one of these, but tomorrow is out - my girlfriend is coming over tonight.

The crowd was certainly smaller this morning. Me! I stayed until 8:30 and no one else showed up.

Where were you? We were all at Manny's. Nine of us were the big crowd there.

I thought it was still at Rudy's. I had not been in about 3 months. Where is Manny's?

The meeting at Manny's Cafe was a rousing success, except for the unfortunate absence of one dislocated member who made a last minute decision to attend and tried to come, but hadn't followed the series of posts on change of venue. We missed his participation and hope to see him next time.

As C-dub said, we had nine attendees, the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. We had a very warm welcome from the staff,there was no conflict with seating other diners or rush to finish up, and the location in the stove shop with lots of antiques and cool wood burning stoves, fire pits, windmills,old tools, etc. lent a unique ambience to the gathering. Open carry by most of the members didn't raise a single eyebrow, and there were no grumpy wait staff like we had last time at Cracker Barrel

Everyone agreed that we'll definitely be going back to Manny's for the August meeting on the 17th.

Thanks to everyone who came for making this a rousing success!

Here's a copy of the venue change reminder I posted on Thursday:

Manny's Cafe
4019 Fort Worth Hwy
Hudson Oaks, TX 76087

It's a small cafe located in the David's Stove Shop building on the north side of westbound I20 at Mikus Road. There is minimal signage for the cafe, so look for David's Stove Shop which is easy to spot. The cafe entrance faces the road near the west end of the building by the windmill displays. (It can also be reached by going through the main stove shop entrance when that opens at 9 AM.) The cafe opens at 7:00. Staff advised they would be glad to have us and open carry is not an issue with them. It's also a bit closer for the folks coming from the main DFW area.

From I20 west, take Exit 415. It is just past the first traffic light (Mikus Road) on the right.

From I20 east, take Exit 415 and make a left at the light at Mikus Road, go under the highway, and turn left onto the westbound service road. It's the building on the corner of Mikus Rd. and the I20 service road.
