  1. sorry, I was trying to post to a forum and got on your profile instead! Don't know what I'm doing yet - sorry!!!

  2. Bungalow Billiards in Chantilly does not have a gluten-free menu, however them manager's best friend has Celiac, so he knows what is safe.

    I was in ROTC but didn't do the drill team. As a cadet I ran the drill competition at ETSU in the spring of '82. Congratulations on your team's performance.
  10. I eat there occasionally and order a burger without a bun. Cross-contamination would be a concern with the way condiments are on a salad-bar-type layout. I have never reacted but I generally don't to small amounts.
