2012-12-05 19.50.48On this day in 1954, the USS Nautilus, the world’s first operational nuclear-powered submarine, was commissioned. This great feat proved the brilliance of Hyman G.

Hans' Bier HausOn this day in 1994, The Shawshank Redemption opened in theaters.  Currently ranked as #1 in IMDB’s Top 250, it was set in Stephen King’s Maine, but was filmed in your humble editor’s Ohio.  Whether your tastes run to icy cold bohemia-style or otherwise, come out to Hans’ Bier Haus, 2523 Quenby St, at 8 PM.

MvsCOn this day in 1993, Frasier premiered on NBC. Besides providing a great standoff between a Barcalounger and a Wassily chair, it allowed for the return of the king of pub trivia, and hero to letter carriers everywhere, Cliff Clavin. Whether your tastes run to the comfortable or the design forward, it’s a little known fact that you should head over to MvsC1011 McGowan, at 8:00 PM tonight for a pint and possibly something to eat. Texas pints are half off. 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.

Monday, 9 September 2013: Celebrate the USA at The Ginger Man

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on September 9th, 2013

The Ginger Man Pub HoustonOn this day in 1776, the Continental Congress renamed this country to “The United States of America.” Before that, it was called, alternatively, “The United Colonies”, “Those nasty upstarts”, or “Dirty Yankee Imperialists” (in actuality, that last one wouldn’t come for some years yet).

Whatever you call it, this great nation produces some great beers.  So to celebrate, come out to The Ginger Man, 5607 Morningside, in Rice Village at 8 PM, and have a pint of an American craft beer.  There are some of them there imports available to the traitors among you as well.

Monday, 2 September, 2013: Off-white ain’t right at the Boneyard Drinkery

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on September 2nd, 2013

Boneyard-Crest-2010_reasonably_smallEmily Post will tell you that it’s the last day to wear those whites until next May (except that “she” doesn’t anymore).  If you wear them to the Boneyard Drinkery, 8150 Washington Ave, they’re likely to not be white anymore by the end of the evening, what with the 7,000 sq ft dog park in the back and all.  Win, win.  Stop by at 8 PM and bring Rover, as you don’t get any more dog-friendly a drinking establishment in Houston (but check the park rules).  Note that while the Boneyard won’t be hosting any food trucks tonight, you’re free to brown bag it or order in (as long as you keep the food out of the park).  Also, all beer and wine is $1 off all night.
