Monday, 22 August 2016: Post Olympic Beer at Whole Foods Post Oak

whole-foods-post-oak-cosmoThe Olympics are over and we have a brief respite before US Football takes over the collective sports consciousness.  Enjoy the breather tonight at Post Oak Whole Foods, 1700 Post Oak Blvd at San Felipe.  Boasting the first in-house brewery of any Whole Foods, there are 20-28 beers on tap (whether their own, local (Texas forever!), or from far-flung places), and a Souvlaki grill.  Plus you can get some grocery shopping done too.  See you there at 8 PM.

Note that if the bar is busy, there is quite a bit of seating upstairs, so if you don’t find anybody you recognize downstairs, take the elevator in the back or the stairs in the front.

wholefoodsbigboyNOTE: EARLY START

On this day in 1961, Six Flags over Texas was opened by Angus Wynne, Jr.  He was the father of Shannon Wynne, who created a little establishment called The Flying Saucer.  So Six Flags is kinda the grand-daddy of all of our Monday night meetups.

Let’s commemorate tonight at Whole Foods4004 Bellaire Boulevard.  See you there at 7 PM.

Monday, 25 July 2016: Mongoose vs Cobra vs The Nixon Doctrine

mvsclogoNote: early start tonight.

On this day in 1969, President Richard Nixon announced that from that day forward, the US would expect that its allies in Asia (read: South Vietnam) would be responsible for their own military defense except for the threat of a major power with nuclear weapons (read:China).  Thus began a draw down that led to America signing a peace treaty with North Vietnam in 1973 and the fall of Saigon in 1975.

Ponder this chain of events with us tonight at MvsC1011 McGowan, at 7:00 PM. Note that the parking situation in midtown is ever-evolving, so consult the handy-dandy, superific, MvsC-specific parking guide before you head that direction.  Fittingly, you are responsible for your own tabs and transportation.
