Not at all impressed after three visits. I'm sure the Irish eat something in addition to mashed potatoes, which seem to be served with nearly every entree.
Loud and noisy, so it's not a place to go have a quiet conversation with friends.
Service was less than stellar, both of the last times I was there with a group they lost my order, never got served with anything except the bill. I will not be going back.

Doigotta & Mountaingirl: Up until Miz Rutledge had a revelation a week or so ago, the law of the land was that if you gotta pack it, you gotta stash it, and you need the license to do so. So I abide by the rules. I am not a fan of open carry, since if you strap that hogleg on your hip and go strolling into Starbucks or Kroger with it, a whole new set of folks get upset. Plus, you alert the bad guys, and draw that also-unwanted attention to yourself. I seek to be discrete, and keep folks happy on all sides.
People - and especially politicians - like Jason Rapert are exactly why I went out and got a CHCL... and use it.
It's still inexcusable for a person in that position to lose accountability for an issued weapon like that. Army privates (and quite few officers) wear a "dummy cord" to keep from losing them... that's why military weapons (and Glocks) have that little ring or hole at the end of the grips.
The War started because of secession. Secession came about because of slavery issues. A little more complicated because of many issues, but that's the short version. In modern terms, you can compare the way people thought about it then to the same way we currently look at the issue of abortion/choice, or even more recently, to gay marriage. Passions run high on these for the same reasons.
A similar deal happened a couple of years ago when the Legislature gutted many of the clean water standards that ADEQ attempts to enforce on EPA's behalf. Once they found that most of the program is federally funded, and EPA doesn't give you their money if you don't abide by and enforce their rules, there was a special session to repeal the offending acts and restore the old standards. You can set whatever state standard your little minds may desire, but EPA still has jurisdiction, and their rules are independently enforceable.
Last winter, I too, took heed of all the local news, and went through the process to obtain my CHCL. I found myself out at night in various places around town a little too much for my comfort, and figured that if we do have to rise up and deal with tyranny, I probably needed something other than my duck gun. So, when I am not around one of those "prohibited places," I usually have my little friend somewhere at hand, concealed.
I am one of those redneck country boys, but from personal observation and the follow-on study after getting my CHCL, I do not believe tht open carry is a good idea for common sense reasons. For the first thing, if I OC, then everyone, bad guys as well as good guys, know that my little friend is indeed with me, and exactly where it's at. In the bad guy's case, this may lead to their coveting a nice tool, and to trying to break even another commandment after coveting. Secondly, it marks me as a prime and early target should they want to further their criminal careers. Secondly, we as a society have been so conditioned by the media and our political system to so greatly fear firearms not in the possession of a uniformed police officer, that the sight of a Glock 22 riding on my hip may tend to send some citizens into a full-fledged conniption and generally disturb the local peace and harmony, undoubtedly at my expense.
My license simply entitles me to have my friend in my possession so long as no one else can tell I have it with me. State law allows me to use it in my personal defense, and that of my family and close friends under certain specific conditions and circumstances, and not as some sort of vigilante, should some miscreant barge in here at Starbucks and demand free coffee and the contents of the cash register. I'm not a cop, and I'm not allowed to try to act like one. My friend only appears when I need to defend a human life. And my friend should be an utter surprise to the bad guy. These sorts of fights can't be the Queensbury rules.
In my experience, the more that a person like Miz Hobbs or Mr. Raper insists that he or she is speaking God's directions to him or her, the likelihood increases exponentially that you are dealing with a false prophet.
