The 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.
On this day in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon announced to the nation his intention to resign. As his successor would say “our long national nightmare is over.” This election cycle brings more breaches at the DNC, history repeating itself. Commemorate or commiserate tonight with us at The Ginger Man, 5607 Morningside in Rice Village. See you there at 8 PM.
NOTE: 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.
Note: 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 MvsC, 1011 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.
