Monday, 6 April 2015: The Wrong Element at Under the Volcano

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on April 6th, 2015

VolcanoFearing that they brought in “the wrong element”, controversial Secretary of the Interior and serial tin-ear James G. Watt on this day in 1983 banned rock bands from that year’s Washington Mall Independence Day festivities. Previous years had seen notorious rabble rousers like The Beach Boys, personal friends of then-President Ronald Reagan, play the Mall. Watt had proposed a “wholesome” program with Wayne Newton and military bands. He was called onto the Oval Office carpet the next day and made to reverse his decision; however, the Beach Boys were unavailable to play the Mall that year as the controversy had given their popularity a boost and were booked to play Atlantic City.  Watt was forced out later that year for another of his many gaffes.

God only knows if you’ll find either the Beach Boys or Wayne Newton, let alone military bands, on the great jukebox at Under the Volcano, 2349 Bissonnet Street at Morningside Drive. But UtV is a great place for beers, cocktails, and frozen drinks, and has a jukebox with a diverse selection of actual CDs. Meet up with us there at 8 PM. Danke schoen.

Monday, 2 February 2015: Groundhog Day Drinks at Under the Volcano

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on February 2nd, 2015

VolcanoOn this day in 1887, Groundhog Day, featuring a rodent meteorologist, is celebrated for the first time at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.  Largely irrelevant this far south, Groundhog Day is the celebration of the film career of Bill Murray and the underrated vocal stylings of Sonny and Cher.  Join us tonight at Under the Volcano, 2349 Bissonnet Street at Morningside Drive. UtV is a great place for beers, cocktails, and frozen drinks, and has a jukebox with a diverse selection of actual CDs. See you there at 8 PM.  Don’t show up tomorrow, though, as regardless of anybody’s shadow, we won’t be there then.

Monday, 11 August, 2014: American (or other) Drinks at Under the Volcano

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on August 11th, 2014

VolcanoOn this day in 1973, American Graffiti was released to theaters.  Although today interesting mainly as an historical curiosity, it launched or revitalized several careers, and its success allowed George Lucas to make Star Wars, so it’s got that going for it.  If you weren’t alive in 1962, it’s probably not very interesting to you today.

Join us tonight at Under the Volcano, 2349 Bissonnet Street at Morningside Drive. UtV is a great place for beers, cocktails, and frozen drinks, and has a jukebox with a diverse selection of actual CDs, none of which are likely to be the American Graffiti soundtrack. See you there at 8 PM.

Monday, 3 March 2014: Star-Spangled Drinks at Under the Volcano

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on March 3rd, 2014

VolcanoOn this day in 1931, President Herbert Hoover signs into law a bill making The Star-Spangled Banner the US National Anthem.  What could be a better way to celebrate on this cold “in like a lion” night than to join us at Under the Volcano, 2349 Bissonnet, at 8 PM for a mixed drink or a beer?  We’ll forgive you if you don’t want to brave one of their signature frozen concoctions that would otherwise help you hang on.  They do have some rather nice augmented coffee drinks, too, you know.  As for music, nothing against the work of Mr. Key, but we recommend sticking to the great jukebox.
