Hi IGers! Let's show the IG Community what a beautiful city Houston can be!

Meet up with Houston IGers at Market Square Park in Downtown Houston at 6pm on Wednesday, October 26th. We'll take some shots at the park and around Dowtown, then hop on the light rail and head to a few stops along the route. We'll then head into Midtown at the Big Block (Ensemble Stop) for a few more shots of Continental Club, Sig's, and of course Tacos-a-go-go! We'll end up in the Museum District where we'll stop at the Museum District Stop on Fannin. there are lots of pretty lit up churches on Main near there, and of course the MFA and the Mecomm fountain. After our last stop, we'll be joining up with the Black Sheep Shindig at Natachees Supper & Punch (on the Light Rail Ensemble Stop) more info on the Shin-dig here: http://shindigtrickortweet.eventbrite.com­ Rail tickets can be purchased using cash, a credit or debit card at any METRO Ticket Vending Machine (TVM).

    Anyone up for an InstaMeet next week? Dec 19-23rd? I'm thinking some place central to meetup, eat and talk anything photo and Instagram related but not actually do a photowalk. Even if its 5 of us, I'd be a success. Please respond with a day and time suggestion. I'm thinking Tuesday, in the Heights at like 6 or 7pm.

      Hi Imelda! We'd be in for sure. Any day would most likely work as Brent saved up his time off to use of the kid's break! As far as a location...hmmm...Carter

      We would also likely be up for it, 6pm with holiday traffic is tough though so 6:30/7:00 would be better, as for a location how about El Gran Malo? Disclaimer: Need to verify availability with blurrypinkytoe

    Is anyone else going to be in costume for the meetup? I was thinking about doing it and going to the Shindig afterwards. Was thinking of rocking the Tuxedo Mask outfit...

    You could always park at the shindig, ride to market square, and then end back at natachees where your car is.

      I may just do this.

      Posted by Imelda B. October 26, 2011
    • Allen R.'s Photo

      I think I will do that too...

      Posted by Allen R. October 26, 2011
  • Imelda B.'s Photo

    Kind of last minute to bring this up but what's everyone's parking plans since we start at one end of the line and end at the other?
    Since I work downtown, I'm parked at a lot right by the Bell Station. It's $6. Its not completely in the middle but I think It will be open enough by 5:30/6 since people leave work by then. Just a thought..

      Amy, if you park by the Bell Station we can walk back together too. Are you stopping by the Shindig After? I wanted to.

      You could always park at the shindig location, ride to market square and then end up where your car is parked

    If we are one of those attending the #SheepShindig, can we come to the InstaMeet in our Halloween costume?!

      hmm.. so if 51 are attending, and only five are in costume... we clearly will be the most awesome at the party! haha

    No costume for me, I'm contracting for a school district up north and won't have time to change before the meetup.
    Not sure where to park but open to suggestions. Hopefully somewhere I won't get jacked!
    Thanks for the tip Imelda.

    Posted by Mario H. October 26, 2011
    • Imelda B.'s Photo

      If you park in that lot by the Bell Station maybe you can escort me back since I'm nervous about getting back to my car alone. I doubt it will get jacked.

    Lil_Miss & ReiswigPHOTO will be there in costume and ready to have some fun! Can't wait to see everybody!

    Hi All,
    We've added some details to the Houston Instameet. Afterwards, we'll be joining forces with the Black Sheep Flock Shindig at Natachees Supper + Punch. Natachees is on the Light Rail (Ensemble Stop) Costumes are encouraged for the Shindig and the Instameet! See you next week! Be prepared to show off those 4Ses!!!

  • Monica D.'s Photo

    Hey IGers! Tomorrow's the big day! We are meeting at 6pm to try and capture some fleeting daylight hours! We'll get started right at 6pm. No worries if you can't make 6pm, you can catch up with us along the Light Rail. I'll be tweeting our location from @cosmopolitician if you'd like to follow along. The official hashtag for the event is #instameethtx Don't forget to tag your pics on Instagram!

    See you tomorrow!

    I have an Instagram account but can't use it since I don't have an iPhone, but I'll tag along and send pictures to Lockerz instead. :-D

    Posted by Kymberlie R. M. September 28, 2011
  • Monica D.'s Photo

    I just noticed that this is at 7pm on a Wednesday, which seems kinda dark to have multiple stops. I'm curious why this wasn't planned on a weekend to take advantage of more daylight.

    If we end up doing the lightrail maybe we could get a volunteer to take each light rail station and scope out some spots that are good, once we arrive, that person can take us on a little tour of the area. Then we can end up at the Shindig later on?

    What say you all? This could take forever long though. :-/

      http://www.timeanddate.com/...­ We could do it a little earlier and work with sunset lighting :)

      Posted by Joelle E. September 28, 2011
    • Monica D.'s Photo

      I agree that we should do it earlier. How early can you guys get there on a Wednesday? 6pm? We could always have a few times planned to meet up. 6pm Market Square, 7pm Midtown Big Block, 8pm Museum District? There are lots of lights on the Churches on Main in the Museum district. We've taken pics at night there. So do we have a plan?! :-)

      Posted by Monica D. September 28, 2011
  • Allen R.'s Photo

    I"m down for this. Here's an idea, I think the Halloween themed Social Media Shindig is the same day. Always can have the meetup there :)

    Posted by Allen R. September 28, 2011
    • Imelda B.'s Photo

      I know Aimee is open to having the InstaMeet join the Shindig.

      Posted by Imelda B. September 28, 2011
  • Monica D.'s Photo

    What if we did something along the light rail? That way we could get a few different spots a long the way? I'm happy to help organize since I live in teh area. Where is the Shin-dig? Can we end up there?
