Last night the wife and I tried out Beer 88, a burger place over in Wyndhurst that has been there a year or two, but it was our first time there. Their advertising point is that they have 88 beers available, but they carry the 88 theme across the pricing of everything for cleverness. Neither of us had any beer, but we did have some tasty burgers, a couple tasty soft pretzels, and some other goodies that were just right. Pricing was reasonable and they had no issue at all with my OCed sidearm.
In recent weeks we have also tried out La Fogata Mexican over in Wyndhurst a couple times as well and the food was quite tasty. The place has been there about 10 years, but we always just passed it by for whatever reason or another. I now regret not going because it's a pleasant little mom and pop place, that like most other spots in Lynchburg, have no problems at all with pleasant people OCing as friends of mine here also confirm. We'll happily go back!
Otherwise just about everyplace I go I OC and have no issue at all and I'm happy to report that Lynchburg continues to be a pretty pleasant and welcoming place to be.
On a low point, as we went through Wyndhurst last night we figured we could either try out Beer 88 for burgers or Fire & Hops Taphouse (a new pizza place) for dinner. We swung by Fire & Hops Taphouse first to see if they had any negative signage and surely enough they did. At the front door in about 6" light letters they had "No Firearms or Other Weapons Permitted on Premises", so it was clear they were just as proud of their anti-self defense stance as anything else they offer. I wasn't particularly surprised since the place is allegedly run by the same group that runs Waterstone Pizza downtown, which is where a customer shot himself at their bar a year after they put up their first No Guns sign. In any event, it's the one place in Wyndhurst to avoid. I may drop them a line sharing my disappointment, but when you already know that your No Guns signs don't keep out people not intending to do harm, you're just stuck on stupid for the fun of it, so I don't have any expectation of change.
