Celebrate a new year of the Diaspora by joining us at Cottonwood, 3422 N. Shepherd, in bucolic Garden Oaks, at 8 PM.

Cottonwood has been generating a lot of buzz recently, and several Diasporites have made advance visits (for science!) to make sure that it’s worthy of your attention.  Laid-back ambiance, plenty of parking, and comfortable seating options complement the very respectable beer list.  The food is pretty good if you’re peckish as well.  You might even see a familiar face or two among the staff from previous venues.

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. While Cottonwood is conveniently located just north of the Loop, it’s a bit tricky getting into their parking lot, as they’re effectively sited on a feeder to N Shepherd (this is Houston, after all: even our thoroughfares have feeder roads!). Check their site for more info, don’t just rely on Google Maps.
  2. The parking lot is gravel.
  3. Most of their seating is outside, but covered and heated.  We may be using some of that because
  4. Tonight is the BCS Championship, and every bar with a TV is likely to be busier than normal.
