I'm hoping to swing by (maybe with my family, although the wife and kids are not sporting the full mustache I am).

For those of you who are coming, I'll see you soon. Will be in navy and outside under the arbor unless it starts raining, in which case we can meet inside in the cafe area.

Sorry I posted a few dates and then went MIA!
Two things. I think I accidentally "unsubscribed" and therefor stopped getting email alerts. and also I was out of town this past weekend.

I know ya'll just met up. How did it go? Anyone up for having another in the near-ish future?

I am.  If we met at a place that is slow during the afternoon, we could have a leisurely visit somewhere inside out of the heat and not have to worry about taking a table for too long.

Go ahead, call me a wuss. :D

I've never been able to make one of these and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

I'm definitely interested in meeting up again. I think I somehow unsubscribe too. I'll be better about checking this time.

It's hot enough that maybe AC would be good in the middle of the day...

I'm out in Katy like I think a few of the people in the thread are. Maybe somewhere on I-10 inside the beltway? Memorial city mall area?

Did anyone make it? I saw this message late and came up to the mall but this place is packed.  Apparently a lot of people enjoy free AC.  I have a gray and white striped shirt if yall are around.

You guys! We are terrible at this!

Want to try Memorial City Mall cafeteria again this weekend? Sunday August 7 at 2:30pm.

Do we need a strategy to find each other?

Pretty sure I can't make this weekend.  Also, being tax-free weekend for school clothes/supplies, I'd stay far, far away from malls.

It's pretty short notice for folks - what about MC mall on a different weekend?

I might be up for the MC mall meetup on 8/21.  How will we know if it's a go and how to know which group of misfits to go up to?

I know 3 other people who are not on this thread, which are planning on attending this Sunday at 2:30pm. Can everyone on this thread, which is planning on going say so? It would be helpful to know who/how many is planning on going to the meetup.

I will be there unless it's pouring down rain, since I'm driving from Atascocita, in which case I might just be late.  Looking forward to meeting everyone - I'm the old lady!

Hey Houstonians!

I would like to set up a gathering before critical mass on Sep30th. Bring your beers and snacks to market square park at 5:30pm.
Fun and cheap!

Critical mass starts between 7-7:30pm. DON"T FORGET YOUR BIKE!

Downtown on a Friday is tough, but I won't completely rule it out.  Great idea though.
