Title: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: DocumentosPorFavor 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. 
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: TexasStash on February 12, 2015, 11:43:26 AM
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 :)

Austinite here, but I travel to Houston every couple of weeks. I would be down to meet up for a beer or two.
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: EscapeVelocity2020 on February 16, 2015, 04:11:42 PM
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...

Post by: Inquizator on February 22, 2015, 12:28:00 PM
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.
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: TXBruiser on February 22, 2015, 04:51:25 PM
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.
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: EscapeVelocity2020 on February 22, 2015, 10:04:35 PM
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:)
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: fiveoh on March 02, 2015, 12:23:23 PM
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'd be down for whatever, coming from League City if anyone wants a ride in my new/used mustachemobile.  I'm not quite up to biking all the way to Houston, but I'm working on it :)

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)

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.

Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: TheOldestYoungMan on April 30, 2015, 11:51:29 AM
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!

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.

June 6th works for me too.
Alright then, what is the venue?  I'm out in Katy, I've never been to 'No Label', so I'll happily propose that.  It could also be a park, if early enough in the day...  I'm pretty relaxed, Starbucks is fine too.  Just interested in what Mustachianism in Houston looks like, since there is so much potential here.
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: oinkette on May 29, 2015, 12:33:39 PM
I'm free any time after 10 that day.  I've never been to No Label but I'm always up for new beers, though it really is way out there, huh?  Is it a bring your own chair sort of place, because I've literally whittled my belongings down to what fits in my car and my camping chair was not one of them.  Karbach and St. Arnold's have seating...and just in case it rains St. Arnold's is inside.  No preference, just FYI.

Edit: A friend will let me borrow their chair, if we go to No Label.

Post by: Genevieve on June 02, 2015, 08:57:11 PM

Hi Houstonites!

I'm currently based in Washington DC, but I just had a phone interview for a job in Houston that I'm very excited about. I'm pretty hopeful that they'll call me in for an in-person interview within the next few weeks, and I've been starting to do some research on apartments in the area and different car/bike options I could adopt if I'm fortunate enough to land this new position and move down.

Any advice you guys have about how to move in a Mustachian way, or particular suggestions on ways to be more Mustachian in Houston specifically, I'd love to pick your brains about it!

Also, hopefully once I move down there, I'll get to meet some of you in person and learn more from your experience!

Thanks,
Coral

Brace yourself for culture and climate shock!  Plenty of rental competition, so shop around and don't commit to anything long term, try to locate close to work, and stay flexible as you try to figure it out.  Houston does not have typical zoning restrictions, which means you can have pocket parks, liquor stores, book stores, strip clubs, crumbling apartments, an authentic Japanese grocery store, and million dollar homes all within 10 minutes of each other (its called Westheimer Rd.).  It takes some getting used to, some people never quite acclimate.  But your buck will go a lot further here than any big city, and there are places out in the 'burbs that are less chaotic.

Good luck!

Welcome to the Lone Star State! Houston is about readjusting the expectations--the climate sucks in the summer, but the winters are pretty sweet when the rest of the country is under feet of snow. The landscape is pretty ugly (although the city is working on the Inner Loop and it's much better than twenty years ago) but the people are incredibly warm, friendly and diverse. There's still a shortage of good coffee, but Tex-Mex and Asian food to satisfy every whim.

The secret to happiness is not being on the roads during commute time, so I advise looking for a home close to work, advocating a shifted schedule, etc. The infrastructure has not caught up with the recent population influx.

If you ask the mods to move this thread to Ask a Mustachian you might get more answers...I don't think this particular subforum gets a lot of traffic.

If you're interested in the cycling community, critical mass and bike houston are good groups to start with. As far as commuting goes, I've bike commuted the last 4 years when I switched to jobs inside the loop (or just outside the loop). Suburbia is much harder to bike commute around because it's essentially subdivisions separated by high-speed roads with no shoulders.

Post by: oinkette on September 09, 2015, 08:31:56 AM
Ok, let's bump this location up again. 

Once upon a time it looks like there was somewhat of a meet up at the Starbucks on Westpark and Buffalo Speedway.  Let's do it again! How about Saturday September 19th at around 10 or 10:30?  The weather should even be pleasant enough to sit outside where there is more seating.

Yes, I swore off Starbucks in another thread, but I'm willing to make a sacrifice in the name of meeting fellow mustachians. Also, pumpkin spice season!  I have to get at least one in.

At any rate I'll be there.

So, just a reminder.  I'll be at the Starbucks on Buffalo Speedway and Westpark tomorrow around 10-10:30 isn.  Looks like I'll be in an olive green dress, glasses, Pumpkin Spice in Hand. Working on a crossword puzzle book before anyone gets there. Probably outside, weather permitting.  Say hi!

Hi everyone. I would love to meet all of you wonderful people. We have been blessed with amazing weather so far and it looks like the coming weekends are going to be just as great, so let's meet up!

My suggestion would be the Buffalo Bayou Park (exact location TBD). Three reasons for this:

Let's talk dates. Rather than awkwardly coordinating it here on the forum. Go to this Doodle poll (http://doodle.com/poll/27hg8s72rnan8k83) and sign up for the dates you can attend. Then when enough people have voted, we'll settle on a date.

Let's get this going before the year ends!

Hi, I have been reading the Blog and Forum for a while, but this is my first time joining the discussion. I'd love to join for a future meetup! I think the idea of a doodle makes sense and the free activity of a park definitely works for me!
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: photohunts on October 27, 2015, 12:43:51 PM
I shaved my mustache this morning...so, naturally, that reminded me of this thread.

The Doodle poll has declared that 11/7, 11/8, and 12/6 are the most popular dates for a meetup. It is entirely possible that we can have a meetup both in November and December. That way everyone who has responded gets a chance to attend.

For the November meetup, I propose Saturday the 7th, and I'll just throw out a time. How does 2pm sound?

Edit: I forgot to mention that Sunday Streets is this Sunday (11/1) in the Museum District. I will be there. PM me if you want to meet up.

Will try to make it out. Don't judge us for driving there (our bikes got jacked!).

How will we identify each other? Is there a color we should all wear? A hand sign? Maybe we will ask each other "hey, are you here to meet Greg?" as a secret phrase?

Twas a dreary day, but a good meetup between HoyaSaxa, econberkeley, and myself nonetheless. Among other interesting conversations, we talked about making this meetup a monthly recurring event on the first Sunday of every month so folks have more opportunities to attend.

For December, it would be the 6th, which just so happens to have the most interested attendees according to our doodle poll (http://doodle.com/poll/27hg8s72rnan8k83). I will think of a better solution for tracking attendees for the event (maybe Eventbrite will work). Look for that invite coming soon.

@kamille, last month we met around 2pm at corner bakery on 59 and kirby. I was thinking this time around the meetup be somewhere with an outdoor space since it looks like we'll have great weather on Sunday. Maybe Hermann or Buffalo Bayou park. I'm open for suggestions.
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: kamille on December 05, 2015, 04:44:46 AM
I misread and thought the meetup was Saturday morning.  I'm going out of town later today :-( Maybe I can make the next one? I work a lot of weekends and sometimes have a crazy schedule! The parks would be perfect for future meet ups for me. I'll be on the lookout for more updates!

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.

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.

Post by: YoungHoustonFIer on January 12, 2016, 06:29:41 AM
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? :)
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: YoungHoustonFIer on January 19, 2016, 01:32:38 PM
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.
Title: Re: Any Houston, TX Mustachians?
Post by: flan on January 19, 2016, 01:37:48 PM
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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

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 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!

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?

Mina & Irfan

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.

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?

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!

Anyone in Montrose, Midtown, Washington, Heights, Greenway, River Oaks, Downtown, or EaDo? :P

I homebrew occasionally, bake sourdough, read a ton of books, have a home gym, have a 3.5 yr old boy, and just bought my first bike. Would be sweet to make some Mustachian friends in the neighborhood.

Really been wanting to get into carpentry/woodworking/metal working, if anyone knows how, I'd be willing to barter (I also make beef jerky, haha).

Hey all,
Just wanted to touch base with fellow Houstonian Mustachians. We live in Spring/Northside. Have a toddler and another on the way, so we're pretty home-bound in the evenings. Would love to get together for some morning/afternoon outings though.

Just sent request to join the facebook group.

We'd be happy to plan a hike/stroll/picnic at one of the nearby nature preserves if other people were interested. It's a place we regularly go with our 2-year-old.

Whoa! The meetup is today! Thanks for posting. I have to work an event today but will try to get up there for the tail end if we wrap up the event early enough.

Hello, Mustachians of Houston!

I'm a Norwegian engineer (in my late 20s) that suddenly got sent over to Houston for work. I'm only going to be in Houston for one week and I'll be coming over Wednesday 6. June and leave Wednesday 13. June.

This travel got me thinking: What if I can meet with some other Mustachians when I'm over there? If would be very fun to see how Houston is for the people living there, and not stay at the Hotel all the time. I'm still not sure how much spare time I will get when I'm there, but I think it's a chance that I'll have at least one of the weekend days off work and probably some evenings.

If anyone had some time and chance to meet up it would be amazing! Answer here, or send me a PM :)

I would also really appreciate if you have some tip and ideas of what to do in the area when I'm there. I will stay quite close to the George Bush airport while I'm there so things to do in the proximity of this area would be favorable.

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely yours,
Jon from Norway

Hi Jon, I'm able to meet up sometime this weekend June 9-10. When are you free?

Are any other Houston mustachians able to meet up?
I'll take a look at the local events calendars and see what's going on this weekend up near IAH airport...

Hi BZB,

That would be awesome, however, my plans changed a little bit. A friend of mine flew in from LA to visit me and he'll stay until Monday morning.

I'm still going to be here until Friday, so if anyone has an open spot an evening (after 5pm) Monday - Thursday the coming week I'm up for a meetup.

I'm very interested in the event, but that link is dead for me and I can't find anything else online.  Is it still on?

That meet up was awesome!

My only complaint was that I didn't get to meet everyone in the 3 hours I was there. But the people I did meet were awesome.

I agree, the meet up at St. Arnold's Brewery was fun. I don't use Facebook, so if anyone knows about more Houston Choose FI meetups, please cross post them on here.

Would anyone be interested in going to a lunch at Houston Restaurant Weeks? I don't get out to restaurants much, but this is a chance to eat at a nice place for much less money and part of the proceeds goes to the Houston Food Bank.
The one I'm eyeing is Hugo's (look at the lunch menu tab) http://www.houstonrestaurantweeks.com/?alttemplate=SearchResults#menu-hugos (http://www.houstonrestaurantweeks.com/?alttemplate=SearchResults#menu-hugos)
The restaurant weeks deal may only be available on weekdays, will have to check. If I can get a few people who are definitely interested, let's agree on a date and I will make us a reservation.
