Hell, I'd meet you guys, I work off Sunrise Valley. But I ain't gettin' into shitty traffic to have a beer with you.

Barry
Yeah, no traffic down in F'burg! Do they even have beer down there?

I work off Sunrise Valley @ Reston Pkwy, the traffic is always shitty, so you might as well have a beer with us & let traffic die down

The fatter you are, the slower you get drunk.

So there is a plus to being 55 lbs overweight!

I tried to exit 95 South at Route 3 the other day. Talk about a traffic nightmare. I hope you're not on that side of the tracks. Stick around for a beer next week or a decaf latte if you prefer. Some people need the decaf around here...

I may stop in. What time ?

I live east of 95, north of 17 and south of 630. Nice rural area.

I used to live just down the road from the Lakeside Inn. I believe I was invited to never return. That was a number of yesars ago, however, so hopefully they will not remember me.

As a thought, guys, for future get-togethers the Vienna Inn is less expensive and friendlier.

I never understood the appeal of driving someplace to drink, then risking everything to make it home. Not in this day of over regulation by overzealous cops supporting the corrupt judicial systems of counties like Fairfax. Wow,,,that opened a can of worms,,,,, .

Back in the day, we drove around drinking a 6-pack with our open containers perched on the dash. That behavior ended in the late 70's. What's your response to my original question? I've never seen the appeal of going out to drink. Although I occasionally go out to my garage and slam a couple.
Um. Are you OK Squig? and what happened to your awesome avatar?

It is a fine joint indeed. I do miss the old folks though. Mollie was so gruff and cut idiots and assholes NO slack. She would chew you a new one if you screwed up or did something she didn't like (such as not closing the door fast enough behind you on a cold day).

From an article:
Quote:
"You could sit at a table with strangers and by the end of the night be friends," said Mollie Abraham. "Unless you're uptight. But then you have no business being there."
Another quote:
Quote:
"Do you sit that way at home?" she once called to a burly beer drinker lounging with his work boots on the seat of a worn and chipped booth. "Do you put your feet on the furniture at home? Get them down!"

The man moved his feet.
What a great place...

I was there with a friend one day when he made the mistake of saying that it was cheese whiz on the chili cheese dogs. Now, quite frankly, I agreed with him but I was smart enough not to say so because Mollie overheard him and spent the next couple of minutes telling him where stuff his opinions, cheese whiz, and the horse he rode in on. In addition to Mollie, I also miss the days where they had a single kind of beer. You'd walk in, sit down, and just tell them how many you wanted. Now I gotta listen to all of my yuppie friends ask what they have on tap and then discuss the relative merits of the different microbreweries.

My dreams of Mexico are kind of not doing very well. I'm chained to my building, but I might be able to get away a bit in Jan-Feb. How are you getting to Belize? Your route sounds like you'll be on a boat for part of the time.

I'm still waffling on the dirt bike thing. I've been too busy. I did look at KTMs but a lot of people like the DRZ400. It just seems much more practical to get a Suzuki. I dunno. The KTMs are serious off road machines and it's hard to resist that. But I don't like their parts situation and the dealer here in DC kind of sucks. Is your WR dualsported?
