Hey guys! 

We are in the Houston area.  My husband and I (and 3 kids) are 4 years away from FI.  We already host a minimalism group in the Houston area where we talk about simple living and early retirement.  We have some couples in the group from different age groups and several single people as well.  We have already hosted several meetups this year.

I haven't read through the posts yet - but in case this meetup hasn't taken place yet - we would love to host one in November.  There is a awesome cafe/coffee shop in Northwest Houston area (Spring/woodlands) that lets us use their TV screens and sitting areas to our heart's content for presentations and movies on minimalism or anything else we need to present.  They are also very kid friendly and even entertain our children while we mingle and present LOL.

I can post a link to our last meetup if that is allowed?  Anyone game for a November meetup?

A meetup in November sounds great (so does one in north Houston). What date are you leaning towards?

I guess I'm late to this party as I just discovered this thread. I'd love to meet some fellow Houston Mustachians, perhaps after the holidays.

Since the weather is usually tolerable this time of year, I'd vote for something outside like Karbach Brewery, Hermann Park or Elenor Tinsley (Buffalo Bayou) Park.

MoMan/Mike,
My hubs and I are also in SW Houston and I love the idea of all of those locations you mentioned.  Any one else interested?

OK, I'm going to throw out Saturday, January 7 at Karbach Brewery. 5:00 p.m.

Jan. 7 because that marks 2.75 years until my F.I.R.E. date, and Karbach because I love beer and can entice my (non-mustachian) wife to join me.

So anyone else interested?

Former Houstonian who is moving back into town in April. I'd be interested in any meetups going on if there is somewhere to track when those are happening.

I'd definitely be interested in a Meetup - maybe we can try for the back half of March?.  I work in the Galleria, but live in the Friendswood/Pearland area.

Is there a Houston area Mustachians Facebook group?  I couldn't find one when I searched.

I would definitely be interested in a meetup too! I live north of Houston but I can use my clown car to get to you guys. I'm really interested in meeting fellow mustachians who understand and get excited about financial freedom. Not many of them up here. Do you think we should start a Houston meetup group on facebook? I know there's one for Austin.

Anyways, just wanted to say hello and I hope we can plan something for the end of March too! I'll have a plus one since the fiance is semi on board with my stash-a-thon plan :-)

Cheers!
Josh

A facebook page might help since I don't check this thread as often.  I suppose I could just set it up to notify that way I'll get an email when one of y'all posts.  Anyways, end of march meetup sounds great to me!

afuera, that's what I did - I just marked the thread to notify me when there was a response which works well.  But yeah, I'll setup a facebook page sometime over the next few days, or by this weekend for sure and post the link here.

Thanks AustinHorn! A meetup of 3 sounds like a good startup to me! I'll watch for your response and we can go from there

Bumping this to the top for any Houston area folks who haven't found the Facebook page  - https://www.facebook.com/groups/HoustonAreaMustachians/.

We've got a poll on the page for March meetup dates and it's looking like next Saturday (3/19) is the most likely date.

umm...Megs
