    Sounds like the perfect mix for a night of gambling. Poker anyone?

    Like the old joke says...It would be a great name for a convenience store.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I was going to ask if this was the name of the annual DC Party!

    There IS an annual party, right?

    It's also a t-shirt. I love some of the shirts at this site.

    Michael Z. Williamson mentions that as a store name in one of his books,
    "Better to Beg Forgiveness...". I get this vague feeling that he does not care all that much for the UN (snicker).

    Baen Books has the first of that series up in the Free Library:

    Freehold by Michael Z. Williamson - WebScription Ebook

    Semi military fiction, speculation on the results of present trends toward internationalism and enforced lowest common denominator "equality", in a science fiction background (mainly to provide a plausible location, not for the "gee whiz" technology).

    I don't like that Alcohol trumps firearms in my state.

    Almost every restaurant in town sells alcohol for consumption on the premisis making it illeagal for me to carry in their establishment by state law.

    I still think that is dumb. When I am carrying, which is every waking moment of the day I have no more than 1 beverage with any meal and that's maybe every other week. Us law abiding citizens know how to be responsible when it comes to the law and our safety and take the proper steps to insure that. Just because I enjoy the taste of a beer from time to time doesn't mean hammered time every time I get a taste!

    Is it not now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives?

    That has the potential for an even bigger party!

    I'll bring the Cuban cigars, they're legal up here!!

    heh...one day? On the occasions I've had to set up a reasonable sized showing, it takes me months of prep and "testing".
