Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin you are correct on Neptune being in Virginia Beach which I would agree is not a terribly popular sailing area. The restaurant however is a couple miles north and east which should make it really easy for the answer I'm looking for.

North East ? That would be the Atlantic Ocean then. ??? The only land north east of Virginia Beach is some 13nms away which is a bit of a stretch for "a couple of miles".

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I believe that he meant NW and that would put it somewhere in the Chesapeake, where the east coasters in the forum will soon narrow down the exact restaurant and can probably quote the menu and the waitresses' names.

That would be my guess though it's also possible he meant SW or that Virginia Beach was NE from the restaurant.

I went to a restaurant in Norfolk, Virginia that looked exactly the same as the phot... It was in the Marina... But I didn't eat there because I saw HOOTERS and, well, I am a tourist and I need to sample the cultural delights of the great capitalists. And yes, I do remember the waitresses name! Linda. What a great set of eyes.

I know that place, I was in that marina, right in front of that restaurant, before heading south. I have the (outside) picture to prove it, too; but I can't post it to this thread to prevent confusion, but the link is here. But I regret to have to admit that there's no waterside dining at this establishment...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My apologies. I did mean NW. Guess I'm a little directionaly challenged today. Obelisk has it with Bubba's on Lynnhaven. Good job!
