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.
