I spoke with the “regional manager” the night of the party. This is the person who owns a few of the In-N-Outs in the area. He said that the crowd was to big. This Sunday I went back to speak to the store manager, who has been there for 8 years. She was familiar with our group, where as the other person was not, as he had not been there on a 2nd Saturday.
The problem is that there are too many of us now going to the place. There isn’t enough room for the fursuiters and everyone else who goes with them. I saw it for myself, the patio was completely filled, and people were standing in rows outside the fence, right against the take-out driveway. There was no place for anyone to move, and people were being pushed into the path of the cars. There was overflow into the very active parking lot, too. Many of our group go there and stay for an hour or several. I do not go every time, but I have been there enough times over the years to notice that we have doubled in size in 3 years. There just is not enough room for a group our size on the property now. I am surprised and happy that there has not been a incident with a car hitting someone.
We were asked not to gather there anymore. I expect that if less people went, in smaller groups and then left in 30 minutes or so, to be replaced by another small group, it may work. I have no idea how this could be organized. The In-N-Out migrations was not our (the PS crew) idea, it just happened over time. The PS gets very crowded, and the group going to the In-N-Out provided some relief, but we cannot do this the way we have been in the past. The fursuiters should try to come up with an alternative plan of some kind. I will help out any way I can.
So, to be clear: This is NOT about us being furry. Not about buying food (we buy a lot of food from them). There are just too many of us now for the size of the property.
