Monday, 24 October 2011: Beer, Tiki, and Mosquitos at Under the Volcano

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on October 24th, 2011

October 9th was the last time we saw appreciable rain in the Houston area.  That’s just enough time for all of the dormant floodwater mosquito eggs to hatch, grow, and become the adult bloodsuckers we all hate by, oh, right about now.  The good news:  floodwater skeeters don’t carry the nasty human-affecting diseases like West Nile and Viral Encephalitis. The bad news:  since they’re a (relatively) benign nuisance, the City doesn’t spend your tax dollars on spraying for them.  They’ll be around through at least the end of the week, depending on whether we get a decent cold snap or not.

So, for now, even though the weather is otherwise temperate, let’s enjoy our libations inside, at Under the Volcano, 2349 Bissonnet Street at Morningside.  UtV is a great place for beers, tiki drinks, and a jukebox with a diverse selection of actual CDs, all of which can be enjoyed under a palapa roof and inside closed or screened windows. See you there at 8 PM.
