Howdy, folks! This is the Houston thread.

There's more of us than there used to be and it would be awesome to meet up and trade/talk posters. Feel free to arrange get-togethers, chat about upcoming events, recommend restaurants, etc.

If you're in H-Town, you can also offer trades/sales exclusive to Houstonians.

Let's boogie :pint:

I'm always down... don't know where everybody is located, but we can always stick inside the loop - places like:

- Saint Arnold Brewery - huge place, tours, and free (awesome) beers
- Tons of downtown/midtown bars - Reserve 101 great whiskey bar across House of Blues also The Dirt Bar, Barcadia
- Dive bars off of Westheimer/Shepherd- Poison Girl is a good one, Kenneallys Pub is a good Irish bar with pizza, Rudyards
- Washington strip - Kung Fu Saloon has vintage arcades
- 6th St/White Oak strip in the Heights - BYOB at a lot off those places
- Upper Kirby area - bunch of new places
- The Village - laid back for bar hopping
- Bars around Timbergrove area north of 10 - El Gran Malo great tequila bar, Cedar Creek big outdoor atmosphere
- Can always catch a Stros game and pre-party at Luckys or The Bus.

- That's just to name a few inside 610...

Outside -

SugarLand area - theres the Town Center w/ plenty of bars/restaurants, the 1st Grimaldis in Houston of course and the new minor league team (got season tix) The SugerLand Skeeters - that's going to be fun.

Galleria/Uptown Park area - Tons of bars/nice restaurants, Sams Place is one of my favs

The Woodlands Waterway Square - another great area packed with bars/restaurants, etc.

Katy area - They have their own square along with the new brewery No Label and of course the Drafthouse

Kemah boardwalk...

Of course all the music venues big and small

For (mostly) good steaks - http://www.houstonsteaknight.com/

I better stop, I could go on and on and on... but i'm sure all ya'll Houstonians know what's up - keep it real in the 713 :pint:

Glad to see they serve traditional food there. I'm sure there's an Italian joint serving stew somewhere nearby...

- The Ginger Man in the Village has a great selection of draft beers from around the world. http://gingermanpub.com/
- Taps House of Beer off of Washington has a crap load of drafts. http://tapshouseofbeer.com/
- The Petrol Station outside the Heights big draft selection and good burgers in a dive bar atmosphere. http://houston.citysearch.com/profile/4 ... house.html
