Bayou City Life & The Pursuit of Good Times Pages

Welcome to "Something Else - Houston & Beyond"! Tired of the same old meetup events at the same old locations with the same old meetup groups? Then it's time for you to try something else!

As you can probably guess from the name, this group is about exploring off-beat and slightly different things - to see and do; in, around, and beyond the Houston area.

Here are some of the many events we have offered in the past and will have in the future: parties, restaurants, picnics, outdoor festivals, concerts, movies, plays, parades, museums, wineries/breweries, bars, clubs, sporting events, tours, recreation, hikes, performance art, day trips, weekend getaways, and anything else that sounds fun and interesting!

If anyone has any ideas of places you would like to go, bands you would like to see, or activities you would like to do as a group we would like to know about them. We will also schedule multi-group big events with other groups that agree to join us. This is a great opportunity to be out and about while meeting new people... always having exciting adventures... enjoying tremendously fun events... while being yourself!

Although this group is listed under the "travel" category, we'll be doing mostly local events in and around the Houston area, with the occasional day trip or weekend trip.

So join us, let your hair down and enjoy life! Don't just go with the flow...swim against the tide! Dance to the beat of a different drum!

And now, various photos from things this group has been doing. All photos below were taken by this group's founder SmokingCotton:
