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)

Nobody is Above the Law: Austin - Mueller Protection Rapid Response

Austin MeFites: come band together and stand together at city hall this evening as we mobilize to demand protection for the Mueller investigation to hold president Trump and the cronies of his administration accountable for their actions. The forced resignation of Jeff Sessions and the subsequent replacement of Rod Rosenstein by Trumpist stooge Matt Whittaker should not go unanswered. This is nothing but a transparent step towards ending or discrediting the investigation, and the people of Austin, Texas will not be fooled. [more inside]

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!

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.

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?

It's once again time to gather for Geeks Who Drink trivia at the Maple Leaf Pub!
