Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on December 30th, 2013

mvsclogoThere’s just one more chance to have a responsible libation before Amateur Night commences. Join us at MvsC, 1011 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 1922, the USSR was established.  In Soviet Russia, beer drinks YOU!

Monday 16 December 2013: Choose your rebellion at The Boneyard

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on December 16th, 2013

Boneyard-Crest-2010_reasonably_smallOn this day in 1773, a group of colonists disguised as Mohawk Indians raided British ships in Boston Harbor, throwing the Boston Tea Party, another in a series of actions and retaliations that would lead to full-scale rebellion against British rule of her colonies.

On this day in 1826, a group of Anglo settlers in east Texas rebelled against Mexican rule by taking control of the Old Stone Fort at Nacadoches, later declaring the Republic of Fredonia from the Sabine to the Rio Grande.  The rebellion only lasted about a month, but was a precursor to the later, successful one that created the Republic of Texas.

Regardless of which rebellion you hold most dear, celebrate freedom at the Boneyard Drinkery, 8150 Washington Ave. Stop by for a pint 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).  Bring a jacket.

Monday, 9 December 2013: Independent Beers at Local Pour

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

Local PourOn this day in 1835, the Texan Army took San Antonio from Mexico.  Although San Antonio would fall again to the Mexicans in March at the Alamo, the Texans would of course eventually win decisively at San Jacinto. (Mexico tried to take San Antonio back at least once). Join us tonight at Local Pour, 1952 W Gray St, at 8 PM, and celebrate Texas’ independent spirit.

Monday, 2 December 2013: Empirically better drinks at Liberty Station

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

Liberty StationOn this day in 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned Napoleon I.  Celebrate with a half-pint (though Napoleon wasn’t really that short) or full pint at Liberty Station2101 Washington Ave, at 8 PM tonight.  The tap list has great variety for its size (there we go again), 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).
