Monday, 25 November 2013: Mongoose vs Cobra vs The Slippery Slope

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on November 25th, 2013

mvsclogoSo that whole prohibition thing started out as a temperance movement.  Moderation in all things, including moderation, right?  Funny how movements slip away from first principles.  Anyhow, that dark corner of American history is well behind us (though we do still feel its effects, as in the three-tier system, organized crime, and NASCAR).  Celebrate responsibly tonight at MvsC1011 McGowan, at 8:00 PM tonight for a pint or a mixed drink.  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.

On this day in 1846, temperance leader Carrie Nation was born.  She once visited Houston.

Monday, 4 November 2013: Beer fit for a pharaoh at The Ginger Man

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on November 4th, 2013

On this day in 1922, the entrance to the tomb of Tutankhamen was discovered by noted Egyptologist Howard Carter (he’s mainly noted for finding King Tut’s tomb, so it’s a little reflexive, but what the hey).  Pharaonic Egyptians were noted beer makers and drinkers, so stop by The Ginger Man, 5607 Morningside in Rice Village, for a pint tonight at 8 PM.  We don’t really know what kind of beer the Pharaohs drank, so feel free to enjoy whatever beverage floats your solar barge.
