What we're about

Hello to all the geeks in Houston!

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!

HMG Rules:

1. Please contact us if you have a change in your RSVP status (so we don't buy too much stuff)

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, and harrassment will not be tolerated.

3. To attend events hosted in a private residence, you must have attended at least three (3) previous HMG public MeetUp event and be in good standing with the group or be "vouched in" by a member in good standing. 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.

4. Be yourself & just have fun! :)

Game Night!

Houston Axe Throwing

It's a good old fashioned game night! Bring your games to share with others to play. We'll be setting up in the party area of Houston Axe Throwing. List what you'll be bringing in the comments or just show up with some games. The game night section of the event is a $5 donation toward hosting the event and HMG. There will also be a raffle for prizes for those who attend. 18+ or 12+ with adult supervision. If people want to order pizza I'll take a collection around 7pm. We now have soft drinks, beer, wine and mead on site and do not allow any outside beverages. If you're interested in throwing axes ins are available for 6 and 8pm as well. The 1.5 hour sessions are $25 and include a lesson, practice and games to help you improve your skill. Purchase your tickets ahead of time using the code 5FIVEOFF to get $5 off. You'll want to RSVP or book your ticket directly on the website since there's only 12 spots available per axe throwing session. More info and ticketing on their website www.houstonaxe.com
