New to Houston. Would love to meet some MeFites
posted March 12, 2018 7:35 PM   RSS

I moved here in January. I don't know anyone beyond my wife. I thought I'd see if there was anyone here that would be interested in a meet up. I live in the Montrose area, so inside the loop would be best. Drinks somewhere would be great, but something more unique would be cool too.

i'm interested in meeting new people and live in montrose as well. i just had a baby and just went back to work, though, so my spare time situation is a bit grim.

Welcome to Houston! There's a decent sized Mefite contingent here, though fair warning that we can be hard to corral as folks are busy and spread out, so hopefully you can expand your friend base a bit.

I'm guessing you may not be familiar enough with the area to name locations to meet just yet, but do you have some days/times that work better for you?

Montrose represent!

I work a bunch and train more -- insane cyclist -- but I could be down for a beer someplace.

Hi there! We are a spread out group, but alas I'm in Montrose as well! Me and my husband RobotRex always up for meeting Mefites!

Hey, welcome to town! We have been known to get together, but as people have mentioned it's sometimes hard to get everyone on board. As someone who's organized a couple of the meetups, best way to do it is just pick a date and work from there once we have a headcount. Given that we're about to have our two days of Spring, now's a good time and we maybe might even find some place to sit outside.

Welcome to Houston! I hope that Montrose and Med Center are close enough together that I can meet you in person.

I'm way out in the southwest suburbs, but always up for a meet-up if I can find time.

I am up in the NW, but would be happy to drive in to meet if schedules permit. Welcome to Houston!

Thanks everyone! Sorry for the delay. I'd love to maybe plan for something the last week of March or the first week of April. I don't know if a week day or a weekend would be better for folks but I have a pretty open schedule. Any day but Wednesday, really. So happy to have this kind of response!

I'm near the Galleria and would be very down for my first Houston meet-up! Just put a date on the calendar and we'll put our chips down. I'm up for M/W/F, or on the weekend, for what it's worth.

That sounds great, coreywilliam! Agreed with a good beginning and others that it's probably easiest to pick a date and see who can make it. If you're looking for more input to narrow it down, I'm generally busy Thursdays but could probably swing a meetup anyway and will be out of town most of the first week of April so would prefer the last week of March or second week of April.

A band I like, Miss Mojo from New Orleans, is playing at the HoB on May 2nd, opening for Ripe. I'll be there, if anyone else wants to join me.
