Breaking News! Lukemeister to Visit H Town!

Mon March 18 at 6:30 PM, Cottonwood Bar
3422 North Shepherd Drive, Houston, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
Over the last few weeks, the Houston metro area has been enjoying all sorts of parties, parades and other events (Mardi Gras Galveston, All Star Weekend, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, etc.), but now it's time for the main event that all these other festivities have been the precursor to. (Precursor of?)
The 1st Ever, Random Visit of Lukemeister!

Yes, it's true! Astronomer, man-about-town, and bon vivant, Lukemeister*, will be visiting The Woodlands from 3/15-3/21. So of course we need to celebrate this event with food, spirits and frolicking!

The date I personally prefer is 3/18, but Lukemeister is available the evenings of 3/15 thru 3/18, 3/20, and 3/21. Location has yet to be determined. He will be in The Woodlands, but will have a car and is willing to come to Houston. This will probably be easier than all of us trying to get to The Woodlands during rush hour, but we should probably keep it to someplace easy to find.

So, location suggestions? Thoughts on the date? What say ye, Houston?

3/18 works for me. Any of those dates are fine except 3/21 at this point. Maybe somewhere on the north side? One place I can think of is Cottonwood Bar.

Thanks for setting this up, MexicanYenta! I grew up in San Antonio and thought Houston was heaven on Earth when I was a kid, but you have to come to the meetup to find out why :-)

I can still come, but I'll be on the late side 7 or 7:15(?) because I now have a work obligation. We should finalize this bad boy.

(well i was only seconding the motion b/c it seemed to have the momentum... feel free to make a counter offer, hash it out on twitter or whatever!)

I'm busy at The Woodlands until at least 5:30, so I'm guessing 6:30 is the earliest I can realistically make it.

I'm going to set this up when I get home tonight. 3/18, Cottonwood Bar, any time after 6:30 or so. Any objections?

How was it? Did you have an awesome time? Did you drink awesome shooters, listen to awesome music, and then just sit around and soak up each other's awesomeness?
posted by jph at 7:25 AM on March 19, 2013

Pretty much, I'd say. It was fun!
