What we're about

While Houston Texans football is our primary purpose--with other Houston sports following suit--we are a social group that just likes to hang out together. We welcome EVERYONE, of all ages, so look for us to visit some local live music venues or festivals, gather at happy hours, and break bread at acclaimed restaurants. Houston is home to some of the best musicians and gourmet chefs, so why wouldn't we take advantage of their talent on non-game days? We hope you'll join us--and feel free to offer your own ideas for group outings!

Please be mindful of the following group guidelines, which make our group more pleasant for everyone:

* Please upload a closeup (headshot) photo, so we can recognize you at events. It makes it so much easier to get to know everyone!

* Attendance is important to us and we take RSVPs and no-shows seriously! Please RSVP for events you plan to attend and change your status if you learn you can't make it to the event. We often arrange with venues ahead of time for a certain number of seats, and last-minute cancellations and showing up to events without RSVPing throws off our planning.

* We do not welcome links to outside websites, regardless of their nature, unless approved by the organizers. If placed on the comment board, we will take them down, if Meetup.com doesn't do it first.

* We do not welcome solicitors through the comment boards. If you have a venue or some special that may be of interest to our group, please message the organizers directly.

First Annual Holiday Dinner and Gift Card Swap

The Spaghetti Western Italian Cafe

This group has truly become a family, and families celebrate the holidays together! Please join us for our first ever holiday party in the private room at Spaghetti Western on Shepherd Dr. Dinner will start promptly at 7:00, so please plan accordingly. We will have a buffet style meal for $15, including the following items: Salad (house and Caesar) Bread Lasagna Veggie Pasta (penne pasta, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, spinach, artichokes, and tomatoes topped with fresh basil in extra virgin olive oil) Spaghetti Western Formal Wear (bowtie pasta tossed with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, and mushrooms in our roasted garlic cream sauce) Chicken Scallopine (sautéed with capers, mushrooms, artichokes, and smoked bacon topped with lemon butter) Drinks $2.25 House wine HH until 8:00, $5-6; after 8:00, $6-7 Draft beer HH until 8:00, $2-4; after 8:00, $4-6 We will have separate checks for the cost of the buffet and any drinks you choose to have. Our party will feature an optional gift card White Elephant type swap. If you want to participate, please bring a wrapped gift card with a value of $15 (no more and no less, please). For those who haven't participated before, here's how it goes. Each person who brings a gift card will be given a number. The person holding Number 1 starts by choosing one of the wrapped gift cards and unwrapping it to reveal the type of gift card. As each additional person takes their turn, they have the choice to either steal a gift card that has already been revealed or take one of the wrapped ones. If your gift card is stolen, you get to take another one from the wrapped pile. It's a lot of fun, and everyone who participates leaves with a gift card. I know the holiday season is hectic, but an accurate RSVP is essential for this event. I don't normally do this, but I'm cutting off RSVPs three days before the event so I can communicate our final count to the restaurant.

Holiday Dinner Afterparty: Mitch Jacobs at re:HAB

re:HAB Bar on the Bayou

We're not even going to pretend that we're not going to re:HAB to continue our holiday festivities. Not coming to the dinner? Join us at re:HAB anyway! From his website: From somewhere between Elvis’s flashy Vegas and Johnny Cash’s earthy Arkansas comes a country boy in a little old Texas town called Houston. That’s where rural folk music, showbiz pop, and American rock and roll reached Mitch Jacobs. So here’s a little slice of Wills, a little slice of Elvis, a dose of rock and roll, and a respectful country tip of the hat to Johnny, all in the tremolo baritone of one Mitch Jacobs from Houston, Texas—but make no mistake, he’s his own man, not an imitator. https://www.reverbnation.com/mitchjacobs http://www.rehabar.com/
