Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
« on: January 13, 2015, 11:48:53 AM »
Hey all-

Pretty new to the site and forum. Any folks in Houston that would like to grab a beer/coffee and meet up?

I'm in Central Houston inside the loop but can travel a bit within reason...

Yeah I think it would be fun to have a meetup, especially if we could get the others of us in Houston to come on out and make it a group event. I'm inside the loop myself, so wouldn't need to travel far to meet.

I am new to the forum. I've been poking around the site for a while.  I am just outside the loop and would love to get together if anyone is interested, let me know!

I'd be the awkward guy - I live out in Katy with a family.  Posting to follow, not sure where I'd fit in, but would love it if Houston started a movement.  Lots of potential here, although public transport and biking isn't necessarily a strong point.  If I can offer FI advice or perspective, I'd be pretty thrilled.

Personally, grew up British, which is equivalent to MMM's Canadian (with a better sense of humor, the Brits don't punch faces:), but ultimately equivalently Mustachian.  FI, not RE, but I'd love to try to contribute positively.

Ah well, I suppose if we were in CO or WA all would be well (the density works better than ours).  Trying to establish a Mustachian community in Houston seems to be an exercise in herding cats.  I'm always up for a social, but this doesn't seem to be making headway :)  Please keep trying tho!

I'm in the Katy area with a family as well.  I wouldn't mind meeting some other people but TBH not sure how well I'd fit in, I'm not a very hardcore mustachian.

I live in Montrose.

Not sure what you do at a Mustachian meetup.  I guess you can't go out for beer/coffee because that would ruin all of our budgets :)

If there are enough people I'd be up for a meeting.

You bike 20 miles to a central meetup location to share homebrew beer while regaling each other with stories about how you developed your frugality muscles :)

Allrighty then.  Who's the homebrewer?  I've homebrewed plenty of crap in my day, but nothing I'd foist on unsuspecting strangers.  And, after more than over-use, all of my equipment was unceremoniously dumped at the curb years ago....  We could also meet at a bar or coffee shop, and order a designated-driver soda or free water, respectively :)

I think a Houston meet-up (especially given the changing times) would be an interesting idea.  I've challenged myself to try to navigate the bike paths between Katy and downtown, so this would be a welcome excuse to try!  Still following...

I'd be interested in meeting up also - and I'm down for whatever/wherever works for most people.

I'm just inside the beltway off of 290, so should be convenient enough to most places.

Sooooo....  We definitely have enough people for a meet up... now we need a location.  My first vote is in fact for a home brewers house, mostly because im always up for trying someones home brew.  Of course we could all still bring our own drinks, but the novelty of meeting up over a home brew sounds very mustachian.  But if no brewers are in the area, then we will have to resort to a bar.  I know this doesn't sound very Mustachian, but come on, this post has been up for over a month, I think we should all have had enough time to set aside a few bucks for some beers with some fellow MMers.  I think a bar inside 610 is the best choice as that's central to everyone.  Or we could meet up at a brewery like St. Arnolds or Karbach.  Both of which I have been too and both good atmospheres for a meetup.

Karbach Tasting and Tour: Mon-Fri 230-9 w/ tour at 3,6
                                          Sat 12-9 w/ tour at 1, 3, 6
                                          Sun 1230-530 w/ tour at 1,3
http://www.karbachbrewing.com/tours/brewery-tours

St Arnolds: Tasting and Tour: Mon-Fri 2-430
                                               Sat 11-230
http://www.saintarnold.com/tours/

I personally like Karbach Tasting better, its a more laid back style, sit outside or stand inside and it last longer, and you can buy additional tokens for $2.5/pc which most beers are a single token except their double IPAs are 2 tokens, but they are double the alcohol.

As for Bars, im up for anything.

Happy to cast a vote for Karbach, or, if people are willing to venture a little further, 'No Label' in Katy is well worth the trip (http://nolabelbrew.com/tours-tastings) - Saturday Tastings- Noon to 3pm. $8 Admission. Anyone arriving after 2pm will receive 2 beers instead of 4 beers (so Mustachians know what to do:)

I'd be interested to meet up at a brewery.  I've only been to St arnolds which I enjoyed.  I'm in the  Katy area as well so No Label is close but I've never been.

I hope you all meet at least once or a few times so I can tag along in the future.  There is really is potential in this thread.

All of the breweries allow outside food/drinks.  In fact I've seen a few people with children.  St Arnolds actually has excellent Root beer.(imo)

Hey guys, I'm new to the forums and also from the Houston area, Sawyer Heights Area. 28 years old and would love to meet some like-minded people on the path to FIRE. I'll follow this thread to see how things develop.

If anyone is still interested in a meetup please let me know.

I'm not seeing a starbucks there (though I'd be surprised to find a corner without one).  That area is good though.

Can we get an address for where you're talking about?

I'm thinking 11 in the morning would be good, anytime fine, earlier is better for me though.  Puttin' it on the calendar.

I'll be at the starbucks at buffalo speedway and westpark at 11 on May 2.  If you can make it great.  I'll be wearing a baseball cap, either white or gray.  I won't be drinking anything, I may be reading something.

Codephrase for the meeting will be "you here for the meetup?."

I don't know how long it would last, I can't imagine more than an hour or so.  I envision a meet and greet, and some planning for something better next time.  There's only so much time you can sit and chat at a starbucks?

Hopefully one of you turns out to be better at planning events than me!

Since I'm new to the city, I've been trying to find fun things to do in the city.

I'm up for June 6th at a brewery.  FYI, St. Arnold is having their 21st anniversary that weekend so it may be a bit more crowded than usual.  Other options are:

Karbach
Buffalo Bayou

I've only been to St. Arnold and Karbach, though.  Buffalo Bayou is smaller, but I think less people know about it.

I would love to join a meetup, but won't be available June 6th. Free Press Summer Fest is that weekend. Hopefully this continues and I'll be able to make it to the next one.

A brewery tour sounds awesome. 8th Wonder is another one to consider.

I'd be down for a Houston hang.

Besides beer, Mustachians also support cycling.
Is anyone planning on doing critical mass May 29?
