Monday, 29 July 2013: Out of this world drinks at Local Pour

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on July 29th, 2013

Local PourOn this day in 1958, President Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act, which would eventually reshape Houston in momentous ways.  After all, if it weren’t for NASA, we’d be trying to figure out what to do with the Harris County Domed Stadium, and wondering when the Colt 45’s would ever by a contender for the World Series again. Join us tonight at Local Pour, 1952 W Gray St , at 8 PM, and thank your local rocket scientist next chance you get.

Monday, 15 July 2013: Mongoose vs Cobra vs Beer vs Gin vs Tonic

mvsclogoTonight at MvsC1011 McGowan, join us for a nice pint or cocktail and maybe something to nosh on. Texas pints are half off.  It’s also Gin and Tonic month at MvsC and perhaps elsewhere.  But at MvsC they have house-made tonic and an interesting range of G&T derivatives to toss back into your portfolios.  Note that the parking situation in midtown is ever evolving, so consult the handy dandy superific MvsC-specific parking guide before you head that direction. We’ll see you there at 8 PM.

On this date in 1986, Columbia Records ended their 26-year relationship with Johnny Cash.  Two years later, Columbia is sold to Sony.  Coincidence?  We think not.  Do not mess with The Man In Black.  Or Texas.

The Ginger Man Pub HoustonApparently, Houston still has a basketball team.  And apparently, that team garnered a much sought-after free agent a couple of days ago.  Whether or not this is a big deal to you, join us tonight for a pint of independently-minded beer at The Ginger Man, 5607 Morningside, in Rice Village.

On this date in 2010, LeBron James announced that he, like thousands of Ohioans before him, was leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat, sealing his fate as the most underpaid player in the NBA.

Monday, 1 July 2013: Independence Drinks at Liberty Station

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on July 1st, 2013

Liberty StationWhen we were but young whelps, studying the classics, we got to know about how things could get lost in translationLibertas in Latin does not mean the same thing to a Roman proconsul as eluetheria means to a Greek citizenFreedom from, freedom for, just another name for nothin’ left to lose, free as in speech vs as in beer: there are lots of ways to think about freedom.  Celebrate the freedom to do so in a lawful, peaceful, assembly at Liberty Station2101 Washington Ave, at 8 PM tonight.  The beer most definitely won’t be free as in beer, but the tap list has great variety for its size, they have a bar full of certifiably-inspired mixed drinks, and if you’re hungry, there’s probably a food truck outside (you are free to brown bag it as well).
