Sun September 18 at 12:00 PM, Goode BBQ
5109 Kirby Dr, Houston, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm bringing my little family to Houston for a visit on the weekend of September 16-18 and I wanted to see if a few folks want to get together for dinner that Sunday evening (September 18th).
I was thinking something in the central to west side of Houston. Kid friendly. A place where we can order, pay and eat without a lot of "splitting the bill" hassle. Maybe a BBQ place?

I am not a houstonian, but I have fallen in love with the Petrol Station every time I visit there. Kid friendly, amazing beer, outdoor patio. Folks can order / run tabs at the bar, so I'd imagine that would making keeping tabs separate easier.

Also I am jealous you guys get to hang out with ColdChef, I keep threatening him with bacon donuts and he still won't visit Portland yet.

I'm all over it. Goode Company has a central and west location. Also, if you want to introduce the fam to the glory that is the Texas cafeteria, could try Cleburne. Woo!

Sounds great. Keep me in the loop, eh?

I'm in. And Cleburne's desserts are approximately the size of Texas itself. True story.

You know I'm in. Just need to be back in ATX by late Sunday afternoon. Let me know where you're staying so I can book a room if need be.

Ah, sorry to miss ColdChef. Will be in Massachusetts that week.

Let's lock this down. I'm in the need of some good Texas BBQ. Let's say Goode BBQ at 5109 Kirby Dr in Houston at noon on Sunday, if that sounds good to folks. Ribs!

Sounds good to me.

Wait, whaaa?? Totally Toootally there. Sunday the 18th at noon, at the last place I saw MexicanYenta. Or KellieBob, for that matter. Which is just flat sad.

Sorry, guys. I hate to have to do this, but I'm going to have to cancel for this weekend. Family business has intruded and I won't be making the trip. Feel free to meetup without me and eat all the ribs that I couldn't. Hopefully I'll be able to reschedule for sometime this fall. Sorry again.

Flagged as "breaks the guidelines" you poozer. I HOPE YOU GET BANHAMMERED.

Not really.

Well, maybe a little really.

So, are we still going to meet for some meat, or is this one a bust?
posted by mrbill at 12:00 AM on September 16, 2011

I'd still like to go, as I don't think I've had good BBQ since I've moved here seven years ago. RSVP y'all?
posted by PapaLobo at 9:15 AM on September 16, 2011

I'll go, as long as I don't have to eat. (Allergic to mesquite. But I think I can eat their potato salad.)
posted by MexicanYenta at 12:44 PM on September 16, 2011

Because I can't join you this Sunday, I ate there last night. Om nom nom nom nom.

Then I went home and listened to my mixtape from *s.

It was a wonderful mefitastic evening, even though I didn't actually see any of you.

I think I'm out, not because I don't love you guys without ColdChef, but because I was having difficulty balancing 3-week houseguest with having had 2 work trips this week and now I prolly have to work tomorrow to catch up.
posted by *s at 3:56 PM on September 17, 2011

I'm still on.

I'm iffish at this point due to some problems the recent stuff falling from the sky uncovered in one of my rentals. :-/
posted by PapaLobo at 7:40 PM on September 17, 2011

Well, heck. A 2-person meat-up isn't much of a meetup, especially when one of them can't eat the meat. (Sorry, it's early and I'm not fully awake...)

Is anyone planning on going besides Mr. Bill and me?
posted by MexicanYenta at 4:50 AM on September 18, 2011

Sorry to bail at the Last Possible Second, but I've not been feeling well the past couple of days and need to rest.
posted by Gridlock Joe at 8:11 AM on September 18, 2011

I've gotta bow out. Was up till 6am with a depressed friend.
posted by mrbill at 8:55 AM on September 18, 2011

...and I was totally gonna go after all, but was up late and fell asleep and wayyyyyy overslept. We're total losers all of us. :-)
posted by PapaLobo at 11:34 AM on September 18, 2011

We will just have to reschedule another event soon. I really wanted to go, but was just wiped out and had to sleep after getting back from my friend's house.
posted by mrbill at 11:38 AM on September 18, 2011

Hey, I'm not a loser! I was dressed and ready to go. :P I went outside and jumped in puddles instead.
