Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on September 29th, 2014

Liberty StationOn this day in 1985, MacGyver debuted on ABC-TV. Regardless of your status as a secret agent or your ability to use everyday items to get yourself out of a jam, join us tonight at Liberty Station2101 Washington Ave.  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).  Feel free to search the jukebox for your favorite tracks, and you shouldn’t even need a paper clip, a piece of chewing gum, and a match to make it work.  See you there at 8 PM.

Monday, 22 September 2014: Beers for a Lost (be)cause at Cottonwood

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on September 22nd, 2014

2012-12-05 19.50.48On this day in 2004, Lost premiered on ABC.  Six seasons of programming, ten years, and one really disappointing finale later, there are still unanswered questions.  It’s a cautionary tale to the viewing public today: regardless of what strange turn your new favorite show takes, breathe deeply, it’s only TV.  Tonight we celebrate the return of the regular fall TV season (whatever that means anymore) at  Cottonwood Bar, 3422 N Shepherd Dr, at 8 PM.  Schedule your DVRs before heading out to smartly-appointed Garden Oaks to have a pint or a mixed drink and possibly enjoy a snack from the menu.  Just don’t order any MacCutcheon whiksy.

Monday, 15 September 2014: William Howard Draft at Whole Foods Waugh

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on September 15th, 2014

wholefoodswaughOn this day in 1857, the 27th President and 10th Chief Justice of the United States, William Howard Taft, was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. A strong opponent of Prohibition, he nonetheless pushed for federal enforcement of the 18th Amendment out of a respect for the rule of law.

Taft didn’t survive to see the repeal of Prohibition, but we can (judiciously) exercise our restored rights tonight at 8 PM at Whole Foods, 701 Waugh.  Do a little grocery shopping while you’re there.

Monday, 8 September 2014: No Hurricanes at The Ginger Man

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on September 8th, 2014

The Ginger Man Pub HoustonOn this day in 1900, a category 4 hurricane hit Galveston, TX.  More than 6,000 people (and possibly as many as double that) perished.  Although the building of the seawall protected Galveston from such an outscale impact in further storm activity, the city never regained its place of preeminence in southeast Texas, eclipsed as it was by a booming Houston. This growth was due in part to the dredging and expansion of the Houston Ship Channel.

Join us at 8 PM tonight at The Ginger Man, 5607 Morningside, in Rice Village.  There are no hurricanes on the menu or in the forecast for tonight.  Just a pint of good beer and conviviality.

(NB:  If you’re interested in learning more about the 1900 hurricane, we recommend the fictionalized account Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson.)
