Harrisburg Art Museum Battle Rounds

Harrisburg Art Museum in the East End is having a series of mural art and graffiti battles and it seems like a funky place to have a Houston MeFi outing (weather permitting.) Maybe go for a drink at East End Hardware or Truck Yard afterward. I propose we go to the August 24th date (mainly because I can't make August 10th)

New to Houston. Would love to meet some MeFites

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.

Trivia: Taco Trucks on Every Corner Lead to Sangria Law

Now that autumn* is here, let's get back into the swing of trivia! Y'all come out and join the intrepid MeFite team for Geeks Who Drink trivia at Little J's Bar. Arrive early for the best chance at parking! (8:00 is trivia start time, I normally show around 7:00 to grab a table.) (*for varying values of autumn; this is Houston, after all)

The Big Trivia Night

(The description you are about to read is real. Only the questions have been changed to prevent an investigation.) This is the city... Houston, Texas. It was Wednesday, December 2nd. It was chilly in Houston. We were working the Geeks who Drink trivia detail. It was seven p.m. when we got to Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. The tables were full. Perhaps we should have arrived earlier, like 6:30 or so. [more inside]

Return of the Revenge of the Son of Trivia II: The Sequel

What's up with us? Trivia twice in two months? I have been remiss in posting trivia night here lately, so y'all come join us for Geeks Who Drink trivia at Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. Trivia starts at 7. Plan to be there early (I hope to grab a table or two around 6:15) because the college kids are back in town. We will also have an out-of-town ringer join us (thanks Momapotamus!) Also just realized it's Yom Kippur till sunset that day. If you can't make it, g'mar hatimah tovah, and have an easy fast!

On Sunday, April 12, 2015, me and my little family will be on our way home from Spring Break in Austin and we'd like to see the Houston Crew on the way. We'll be hitting your city around 10:30. Where's a good place we can get together and eat eggs and pancakes and maybe other brunchy stuff? Looks like it will be 11am on Sunday at Beaver's in Houston.

Lager Rhythms 20th Anniversary Gig at Saint Arnold Brewery

My a cappella group, Lager Rhythms, is having our 20th anniversary "Brew-ha-ha" concert at Saint Arnold Brewery on Saturday, August 9th from 7-10pm. We have a couple of MeFites attending already, and I would love to finally meet some more of the Houston/Austin folks. The group is 8 voices, but we have many former members coming back to help celebrate and sing with us. It's going to be a blast! [more inside]

Quansar season is flexible in Houston, isn't it?

During last night's quiz meetup it was noted that it's been a while since we've had a non-quiz-based meetup to simply socialize and catch up. We're willing to host again at our place, but recognize that holding it in Missouri City does place a bit of a travel imposition on some. So, lets start a discussion: when shall we meet, and if not in MoCity, where?

Trivia: Gonna Party like it's 5774!

It's once again time to gather for Geeks Who Drink trivia at the Maple Leaf Pub! We have prize winnings to spend, and it's been a while, so let's grab a table (the earlier the better chance of sitting near English Matt. I'm suggesting 6:30) and have a yummy steak and baked potato (served from 7:00) and kick some trivia butt (trivia starts at 8:00).

Trivia: Revenge of the Return of the Son of Trivia

We looked up from the debris to find, happily, that icepuck season is over! So to celebrate this and any number of other events, let's play Geeks who Drink trivia at the Maple Leaf Pub! Trivia starts at 8, but ever since it was named the best trivia night in Houston, the MLP has been full earlier and earlier. I'm going to suggest arriving around 6:30 if we want any hope of securing a table. Yummy steak is served starting at 7. Plus we have a gift certificate to spend before it expires! And English Matt is back from Calgary! Exclamation mark!

Two Mefites in Houston

Hey, 7segment and I are headed to Houston to see the Houston Dynamo/Stoke City game on the 24th of July. We'd like to see if we can schedule a meet up at a bar on the 23rd in order to meet some Houston mefites. I know zero about Houston. I'll be staying near the Dynamo stadium so somewhere near there would be awesome and around the 7pm-8pm hour works best. Suggestions?

Houston "Bad Art Night"

Proposed: a night that's kind of like an art "potluck." Bring your arty or crafty project and materials. Prepared to share. Once gathered, we engage in an excellent form of parallel play. Conversation ensues. Called "Bad Art Night" to 1) take the pressure off of trying to be "productive." 2) create permission to try new things and just play around and finally 3) lower the bar for entry -- no artistic talent required.
