We are a group of geeks looking for other like-minded people to converse with about geek culture and have fun outings with. If topics like Dr. Who, Star Wars, RPG, Josh Whedon, Marvel/DC comics, X-Men, The Avengers, movies, cosplay, video games, retro gaming, Firefly, anime, Battlestar Galactica, Torchwood, tabletop games, card games, or anything else geeky sounds like YOU, then it's time to join the Houston Metro Geeks! We will be planning lots of outings and doing lots of geeky things together around Houston. This group was started in Atlanta with The Metro Atlanta Geeks and we want to bring the same atmosphere and love for geekdom to the Lone Star State!
We would like to have a great environment for us to facilitate a fantastic time and build geeky friendships. We will try to plan on doing lots of fun activities for everyone & embark on our various interests. We'll do things like set up game nights, go to conventions, have bar nights, go out to dinners & host potlucks, sing karaoke, play trivia, go to the movies and viewing parties, plus plenty of other stuff! We can't wait to meet you all, so come join our ranks!
1. If you fail to no-show 3 times & do not inform us in advance to change your RSVP, you will be removed from the group. We have to be able to coordinate schedules and know exactly who is coming, so you don't get left out!
2. Respect fellow members! We have had some issues with this (*not much*), but it must be said for the sake of it. Rudeness, hostility, and/or personally-offensive behavior will not be tolerated.
3. To attend events hosted in a private residence, you must have attended at least one(1) previous HMG public MeetUp event and be in good standing with the group. This ensures that you are a familiar face and have not had any prior conduct issues so that everyone is comfortable with one another within a more personal environment.
