Monday, 10 December 2012: No Tengo El Toro at Anvil

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on December 10th, 2012

Apparently, there’s some to-do tonight about some funny-lookin’ little punkin in a cow pasture that a number of folks will be watching tonight.  For the rest of us, there’s beer and cocktails! OK, there will likely be beer and cocktails for a number of those other folks, but our point is that we’ll be enjoying ours in the usually-punkin-free environment of Anvil Bar & Refuge, 1424 Westheimer, at 8 PM.  See if you can make it there without steppin’ in somethin’.

Tonight we’re gathering at Anvil, 1424 Westheimer, for libations at 8 PM.  Drinks inspired by this day in history (pick one, or none, but certainly not all):

1718: Founding of the city of New Orleans by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville
Drink: Vieux Carré, Sazerac.

1921: 47th running of the Kentucky Derby
Drink: Mint Julep.
1945: Unconditional surrender of German forces by General Alfred Jodl in Rheims, France
Drink: dopplebock, biere de garde.
1994: Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” recovered three months after theft from Oslo museum

Monday, 12 March 2012: Second-best beers at Anvil

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on March 12th, 2012

Anvil, at 1424 Westheimer, is now the second-best bet on lower Westheimer for a good beer. Hay Merchant is open now, in case you’ve been living under a rock.  But that doesn’t mean that it’s older brother forgot how to serve up good beer.  And how to dish out cocktails (at least ones they approve of).  So, avoid the beer-drinking masses and settle like the rest of us. See you there at 8 PM.  As always, take note of the local parking reality.

Monday, 20 February 2012: El día de los presidentes at Ninfa’s on Navigation

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on February 20th, 2012

For Presidents Day, we’re pulling out all the stops and heading someplace a bit outside our normal parameters.  Ninfa’s on Navigation at 2704 Navigation (aka “The Original Ninfa’s“, or “Mama Ninfa’s”, or “The One That Doesn’t Suck”) recently got some help on their drink program from the fine folks at Anvil.  So if your beer palate doesn’t allow for the occasional Vienna lager, there should be good mixed drinks at the ready.  Of course, you really go to Ninfa’s for the signature fajitas, which due to the peculiarities of international tariffs, are some of the very few still made with outside skirt.  We’ll see you there on the patio a bit early (7:30 PM), but we’ll be around for a while.  ¡Viva EEUU!

Monday, 16 January 2012: The drinks that dreams are made of at Anvil

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on January 16th, 2012

Anvil Bar and Refuge, 1424 Westheimer, is the best bet on lower Westheimer for a good beer. (Yeah, sure, Hay Merchant is opening Real Soon Now.  And there really is a Santa Claus.)  See you there at 8 PM.  As always, take note of the local parking reality, and stop by for a draught or a cocktail.

Monday, 21 November 2011: Post-Beer-Week Drinks at Anvil Bar & Refuge

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on November 21st, 2011

Houston Beer Week may have come and gone again, but every week is beer week for Diasporites.  Anvil Bar and Refuge, 1424 Westheimer, is the best bet on lower Westheimer for a good beer.  See you there at 8 PM.  As always, take note of the local parking reality, and stop by for a draught or a cocktail.

Monday, 26 September 2011: Legendary American Drinks at Anvil Bar & Refuge

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on September 26th, 2011

On this day in 1774, John Chapman, AKA Johnny Appleseed, was born.  On this same day in 1820, Daniel Boone died.  Today, then, would be a perfect day for a hard cider or a bourbon cocktail, wouldn’t it?  Anvil Bar and Refuge, at 1424 Westheimer, is the best bet on lower Westheimer for a good beer (and, very rarely, cider) with one of the finest tap systems in the city (at least until sibling Hay Merchant arrives).  They also make mixed drinks with bourbon, rye, gin, and a host of spirits you probably have never heard of (but not vodka: hipsters hate vodka).  See you there at 8 PM.  As always, take note of the local parking reality, and stop by for a draught, a cocktail or both.

Monday, 1 August 2011: Striking the balance between beer and cocktails at Anvil Bar & Refuge

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on August 1st, 2011

Anvil Bar and Refuge, at 1424 Westheimer, is the best bet on lower Westheimer for a good beer (at least until sibling Hay Merchant arrives).  They also make mixed drinks or something.  See you there at 8 PM.  As always, take note of the local parking reality, and stop by for a draught or a cocktail.

Monday, 20 June 2011: Good drink smithing at Anvil

Posted by john | Meetings | Posted on June 20th, 2011

While we await the opening down the street of The Hay Merchant, for now, Anvil Bar and Refuge, 1424 Westheimer, is the best bet on lower Westheimer for a good beer.  See you there at 8 PM.  As always, take note of the local parking reality, and stop by for a draught or a cocktail.

Monday, 2 May 2011: There May Be Beers at Anvil

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on May 2nd, 2011

Anvil (1424 Westheimer Rd.) gets lots of press for its cocktails, but its small-but-scrappy beer wall is impeccably well-maintained.  Until its younger brother Hay Merchant opens, it’s the best set of taps on Lower Westheimer.  Plus, if you don’t want a beer (gasp) there is the chance that Anvil will serve you the cocktail you want (unless you want a martini or anything with amaretto or anything else they don’t approve of).  See you there at 8 PM and watch out for the parking situation.
