Great, this is walking distance from my house. Saturday is a preferable day for me over Sunday as well.
Speaking for myself (because I ate a lot of Mongolian BBQ when I was young & poor) I think Mongolian BBQ is the kind of food I romanticize because it's cheap-ish, filling, and kind of novel watching them cook it - but in reality it's not something I want to eat too often these days.
Again, I find everyone who thinks you can take "correct"action to prevent these crimes is being very smug. Everyone wants to blame it on something, the cops, drinking, whatever. I do know some of my neighbors. I have no one to blame it on, I just want it to stop. I don't know the answer, and neither do any of you. Take precautions, sure, but we did. Please take the time to read my comment above.
Hey Bill, this is heckasac and you know I respect your opinion but I am taking your defiance somewhat personally since I was robbed at gunpoint with my husband three weeks ago by a guy that fits this description. Your defiance to not be cowed would be admirable except for the fact that we were doing nothing "wrong" to be targeted and could have easily been shot. It was 9pm and we were walking from Red Rabbit only a few blocks and neither of us were intoxicated. We are both pretty vigilant and often cross the street if we see anyone sketchy anywhere ahead.
I can tell you from having this happen that pepper spray or a body alarm likely would have gotten us shot and a gun certainly would have as he came up on us fast out of nowhere with gun drawn and had a buddy across the street, likely with a gun.
I am sure cops will be crawling for at least a few nights but they can't be on every block and that will probably just enable them to respond quickly to a crime scene. In our case they had the helicopter out within 5 minutes to no avail.
I am also going out to dinner and a show tonight but guess what? Me and my husband are going to take a cab because I do not feel safe riding the few isolated blocks to my house (which is impossible to avoid) late at night when the show is over.
By all means, continue to make your point by going out and I pray you are not targeted.
You can add one more. My wife & I were walking home from Red Rabbit last night at 9:00PM & had a gun pulled on us at 26th & H. Stole our wallets & my phone. Gun was definitely real! No bike, the guy was on foot & came out of nowhere. Short stocky Hispanic guy.
