Hmm I did say Sunday, not Saturday. I think I just forgot what day it is X-) I'm going to blame it on being a sleep-deprived night-shifter. I still look forward to meeting up with fellow Houstonians sometime, sorry for the confusion.

Who is up for a meetup this Sunday?

My husband and I are in for meeting tomorrow Sunday 12/6. I like the idea of meeting at a park

I'm up for a meet up! Now we need to decide where and what time.

Here's my proposal:
 
2 pm tomorrow at Hermann Park

Any good landmarks around there we can meet at?

I know there's the Miller Outdoor Theater and the Arboretum, but I don't know the place well enough to recommend a specific pavilion.

I don't have an opinion on a specific meeting place or landmarks. Miller theater works. Unless someone else has a preference.

Could we please try another doodle poll? The weather is a little unpredictable right now and cold. Maybe Houston Center for Photography or Contemporary Arts Museum could be good free places to meet up. They are free admission every day. I vote for the  Houston Center for Photography because it also has free parking.

Houston Center for Photography
Saturday Sunday: 11am 7pm
Friday: 11am 5pm
1441 West Alabama
Houston, TX 77006

Contemporary Arts Museum
Friday 10AM 7PM
Saturday 10AM 6PM


Sunday 12PM 6PM
5216 Montrose Boulevard
Houston, TX  77006

Let me know what you guys think! I recommend Sunday 1/24 1pm @ the Photography Center.

Hey guys. Pretty new to this whole early retirement thing. Did a case study last year and got tons of good info.

http://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/ask-a-mustachian/case-study-should-have-found-mmm-10-years-ago!!!/?topicseen

New year so started to browse again and see what I can be working on this year to help me along and saw the meetup page. I'm actually about and hour south of Houston and was really just curious what the meetups are all about and how often you guys get together? I'd definitely like to talk to some people who have lived this thing out and maybe get some tips.

Thanks and hope to meet some of y'all soon!

May be able to make this Sunday at 1pm. Silly question probably, but are we allowed to chatter inside the Houston Center for Photography? Or is there a nice patio area or something similar where we can just gather and chat? :)

Valid point.. I hadn't thought of that. Do you have a better location in mind? I'm open to ideas. The weather is supposed to be nice. We could do something outside.

This is probably a weird idea, but how about the patio at the HEB that's a couple of blocks from the Photography Center on West Alabama and Dunlavy (1701 W Alabama St)? Sometimes they have live music or food for sale, but it's public, got free parking, and we won't feel pressured to buy anything except maybe essential groceries?

Delayed meeting review:
The meet up (1/24) went really well! I think there were 7 or 8 of us who were able to make it out and we ended up talking for almost 4 hours! We successfully spent no money while hanging out and for those who need to go grocery shopping they happened to already be at the grocery store. :-) I think doing something similar next time (or the same thing) would work really well. Thanks for the suggestion cai!

Hello Houstonians!  I am flying in for a meeting this weekend-- never been before-- and I have a small offer.  I'm older than most of you, I think, FI, retired except for my side gig.  It may be fun to have a drink and talk about journeys to FI; mine goes way back before "The Tightwad Gazette" days.  I will pick up the check ( FI and all) for a small number of you ( say, up to 5ish) at my v. nice hotel in the central bz district on Sunday at about 6:30.  Any interest?  There is probably a dress code of collared shirts and no shorts if that's an issue.

Another place near HEB- has anyone ever tried a meetup on the lawn outside the Menil collection? There's always cyclists an slack-liners out there on the weekends.

hey guys, I registered to be able to participate in this thread!!
I am just starting on my Mustaschian journey, but my family (hubby and 3 kiddos) is not on board with me. This troubles me greatly and I  would love to join the community and find out how you guys are doing it.

HEY! Yes I want to meet up! Sorry I posted awhile back about wanting to meet up, and then sorta flaked on finalizing plans. My vote is something similar to last time (free/outdoors if the weather is nice!) on a weekend afternoon. April 9, 10, 16, or 17 work for me!

I am located in Northwest Houston and it would be great if we could meet that direction, but if most people live inside the loop then I don't mind driving again (although it is very anti-mustachian)

Hey My fellow Houstonians. I am would enjoy meeting up with some of you all. I am just beginning my journey to FI.. and it seems like everytime I get a step ahead something happens and I move back two steps. Hopefully meeting up with like minded mustacians will help me get past my current funk. I live in the Pearland area and any centralized area would be ok.


thanks

All these dates work for us!  We could go to a park like discovery green or something.  Bring snacks/drinks and have a picnic type of thing. What do y'all think?

Hi All,

Did you meetup? If not, how about Sunday, May 1? We could meet at Discovery Green or Montrose Heb around 1pm.  It looks like that was the plan last time so maybe it would be convenient again.  Hope I can meet the Houston mustachians.  I'm new to the Mustachians world though I've always been one to save.

I'll be out of town for this one, but I think we have gotten a few new Mustachians in Houston, so a meet-up would be great!

In case others are not available for May 1 either, anyone up for trying to meet up this Sunday 1pm at HEB Montrose? Same place as last time?

edited to include slash-out because it's too confusing. You guys should just try to meet up May 1.

This Sunday doesn't work for me, but I think I'd like to make one of these meetups in the future. I'm out in the Energy Corridor, but would enjoy having an excuse to drop into the area around the Montrose HEB again one of these weekends; strolling the Menil Collection is one of my favorite free things to do in Houston. I'm not on the road to RE, but I do have an appreciation for financial sanity.

How about May 8 instead?  Just trying to give enough lead time for everyone to log in and be able to mark it on their calendars.  :) Btw, I live in memorial area so I'm not tied to central Houston.  It just seemed to work in the past.
