The fun starts at 11.

For the next away game, we will meet at Coaches Pub, MapQuest this:

2204 Louisiana St
Houston, TX 77002
(this is Dark Tan, but Coaches Pub is next door in the strip mall)

Bring singles, we'll have SQUARES!

This is not the bar off 290, this is near downtown (midtown), 1/2 block from Pub Fiction!

Pub may or may not have seating at 3 PM on a Saturday. I will work with coaches to have a reserved seating area for us Saturday :) Still working on expanding their menu.

We will also watch the Tampa Bay game at Coaches - you will not get into pub on a Thursday dressed in Texans gear :)

After those two games, we'll decide which bar we like better.

Sorry. My fog hasn't cleared. Went to Stros yesterday - as we were leaving Stefanie complained about to much drinking and a long weekend. I said firstly - you're too young for such complaints. Secondly - um, we didn't drink today. LOL. Saturday was rough on all of us.

WHY NOT!!?? Do they not support the Texans? Why would anyone want to support a bar that does not support our Texans? What's wrong with wearing TEXAN gear? Set me straight, maybe I don't understand. I would not give ANY bar one stinkin dime if I was not allowed in their place because I was wearing a Texan shirt!!!!!

Doesn't Pub Fiction have more like a "clubish" atmosphere on certain nights? I know that I went on a Friday night and they card everyone and have a dress code...

Because 90% of their profit comes from being a club on Thurs, fri, and Sat night. it's simply their business model. They fully support the Texans and the Aggies (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little), and I am sure other Houston teams.

But, simply put, part of their business is their image, which means when it is club mode and not sports bar mode, a certain dress code applies :)

How long does it take you to get to Spur 527 on 59 (downtown)? The bar is about 3 minutes off the spur.

Yankee_In_TX
08-16-2007, 08:45 AM
There will be about 20 seats waiting for us Saturday starting around 2 :) The menu has been expanded, including Saturday and Sunday brunch section.

08-16-2007, 12:42 PM
BTW, Texan_Lee and Dr2BKay approve :)

AND they have a cornhole video game!!!! (much like Golden Tee)

So, it's right at the corner of Louisiana & Webster?
That's close to a Randalls' isnt it?

Gary and I were looking for you yesterday at TC, Yank.
We met Jeff.

Depending on Friday night (for obvious reasons that had already been mentioned in this thread), I'll see if I can drag myself out there.

I wouldnt be surprised if Bill finds himself on the corner of 290 and Jones comes Saturday! Maybe, he'll see me there as well.

JohnsonFan, I'm in Sugar Land also. Ya want to carpool if we both can make it? PM me, and we can try to arrange something.

Well, that sure leaves me out!! BUT, I just might show up on a Thursday night at THE PUB, just to see if they would let me in! I love a challenge, esp when it comes to someone slighting our TEXANS!!:bat:

G's icehouse would be happy if people just showed up with a shirt on PEROID!! I bet they might start handing out free TEXAN shirts, just to get the business!!:doot:

Is Coaches smoke free?

Did the council pass this without a vote by the public? In Austin it is smoke free but that is after it was put on a ballot and it barely passed.

Nope, I wish, still at work :( It will be later tonight (if I have a chance) and I will post (if I make it up there) late night. So check this thread in the morning.

If I don't post anything, it means I couldn't make it up there, but will be sure to ask tomorrow afternoon!

gary
08-17-2007, 03:38 PM
Will you also please check if you go there if it's good for a chair

Texan_Lee
08-17-2007, 04:17 PM
All - I joined Yank there on Wednesday night, and it was not bad with smoke (and I do have allergies with smoke)... but yes, all bars will be smoke free come the 1st of September.

Spec - I don't think there was a public vote on the non-smoking issue in bars/restaurants, but it will become law no matter...

Gary - As for chair access... I honestly don't know. We might have to move a few chairs around to get you in there (the place is a little small), but I don't see any problem beyond that as far as your chair... now we just need to find out if they will let kids in to begin with (I honestly don't see an issue with that either).

You guys/gals have a great time!! I decided to watch this one from home. I have to keep up with Regina, my niece who lives in Ariz, and a HUGE Cards fan. She has already called predicting a big win by the Cards. She needs to get a grip on reality!! lol If it hadn't been for illnes, I would be in Ariz right now ready to give all those Cards fans hell!!

I held the tables for you as long as I could last night (Tampa Game at Caoches). By the third quater, I couldn't hold off the LSU fans stares and inquiries about the 2 tables I was hogging and I gave up.

I thought you said your friends would be there and you would be there around 8.

This is to Ted, in a thread that vanished while I was typping:

I am sorry!! Andy didn't tell me you were there. I thought ONLY Jeff and Andy were there!! Andy said the LSU fans were starring, so I said go ahead and give up all but maybe 2 tables.

Andy later texted me and said they were leaving because it was all LSU fans and they were putting the sound on the LSU game, so I just went to the Wet Spot instead.

I would have come if I had known other Texans fans showed up :( Regardless, we'll be back there full force for the CARRolina game. I printed out squares for the game last night, too! I'll buy you an O'Douls for your effort at that game.

Hi there!
I just want to throw our name out there to you for any viewing parties or gatherings that we could help you out with.

We're a casual sports bar, family owned and ran. We're looking forward to the upcoming season and fostering some new relationships with groups of football fans.

We have the NFL Sunday Ticket and show all of the NFL games. We always have the Texans showing on the big screen upstairs with Full Volume sound.

We've got a new drink menu that has specials specifically for NFL games. We open at 11am on Sundays with a $3 Skyy Bloody Mary Bar. We offer any pint of beer (14 to choose from) for $2.50.. and it's steak night. $12 Ribeye, Fries, and a Pint of Beer.

Oh- and we are now Smoke-Free indoors. We do have a covered patio where people can still smoke if they choose.

If you are interested in getting a group of 10 or more people together, I will buy the first round of drinks.

It's The Mezzanine Lounge & Sports Bar. We're on 59 @ Greenbriar/Shepherd in the Kinko's parking lot.

Sorry, actually had work to do at work (which is going, since I only get paid for hours I bill!) :). I personally am not going to set up another one because with school and work I barely had time to work with a bar right down the street. Not because I'm annoyed or anything, but it's really hard (since we live in Houston and the games are on TV) to get people to RSVP, get a head count, and work with a bar owner.

So it's hard to say "we have X people, we want Y priveleges," especially with an owner I don't know. May have 10 people one week, may (if everyone would show up!) have 30 another.

HOWEVER, if someone else sets one up, I'll be there with bells on :) (should that not happen, I'll be plopping my butt at Pub or Coaches).

Not because I'm annoyed or anything, but it's really hard (since we live in Houston and the games are on TV) to get people to RSVP, get a head count, and work with a bar owner.

So it's hard to say "we have X people, we want Y priveleges," especially with an owner I don't know. May have 10 people one week, may (if everyone would show up!) have 30 another.

HOWEVER, if someone else sets one up, I'll be there with bells on :) (should that not happen, I'll be plopping my butt at Pub or Coaches).

Ok. Well, I'm in Austin soooo someone would need to take initative here. I'm willing to give him a call and try and get something set up but that'll be the extent of it all. Not really too much I can do from Austin.

I do know this, the Vito's in Clear Lake, actually right off 45 and Nasa Parkway, it is a good place and there are usually some good visual stimulants for you guys.....I am sure the one in the Galleria is the same way.

I wouldn't be able to help out on that one. The guy that I know is the GM at the other one off Richmond.

And YES it's a great one too. I've been there. Either Vito's would be great for you guys. Pick your poison.

I understand. I guess I'm just too much of a wuss to work with a bar I don't know when it's hard to tell how many people are coming. I don't think we've topped 15 people yet (*cough* if everyone showed up the same week.... *cough*)

And we (Bill and I) vetoed Clear Lake :)

So far, it sounds like the Wet Spot is the best contender for the watch parties... but I think this is going to have to be looked at more closely... some research will have to go into this for the next week in a half...:drunk:

Just thought I toss out Griff's. They have 3 big screens and Texans are on with sound inside & on the patio. No big specials for Sundays, but the drinks and Food are reasonable.

Drinks were $2.75 bottle domestics and $9 pitchers domestics (Shiner was $11)
Bloody Mary Bar was $4.50. Nothing great as far as drink specials.
Food's pretty reasonable though.

Checked the website on 702. Looks like they have $5 pitchers, $2 hot dogs, and 35cent wings. Doesn't say anything about a big screen though - just plasma tvs on some of the walls.
The website is not very good....

It says 15 TVs (3 Big Screens).

On another note, I remember a "Big John Icehouse" on Briarforest and Dairy Ashford that I used to come watch Rockets games some years ago.
They have a couple of big screens there, a full menu (including crawfish, steak & BBQ, breakfast served all day - easy on the wallet), a fairly big converted garage area and covered patio, good for people to light up.
It might work for y'all up North and out on the West side (it's a bit far for me now that I have moved, but I don't mind.)
They also take reservation.

Having checked out the place *ahem* several times, the TV's aren't that great and when the garage doors are open, they TV's are especially tough to see....

I guess it was fine to me before was that the Rockets games are at night, and it was some ten-twelve years ago, during the championship runs. TVs weren't as nice back then. LOL!

That's Griffs that has the 15 TVs.

702 just says "Plasma screen TVs on virtually every wall,"


EDIT:
I called 702 - they have 4 TVs (42")

Yep, they're pretty ancient...I think they're starting to replace w/ LCD HDTVs.

I think Andy and I are just going to stay close to home for this game and go to Tobin's, since there doesn't seem to be a concrete decision on where to go for this game.

I agree that the picture that was shown makes our TVs seem to be pretty lousy. We've got a large variety of styles and sizes of TVs scattered throughout the bar (34 of them) that create an atmosphere that can't be shown in pictures.

The 52 inch big screen is a newer DLP model bought in 2005. It's not the rear-projector style. Our TVs range everywhere from a new projector that covers an entire patio wall, 42 inch plasmas, 30 inch HD LCD flatscreens, 32 inch regular old-school, and down to 15 inch old-schools in all of the bathrooms.

Our TV set up was designed with the rabid sports fan in mind.. you can see a lot of action from any seat in the house. I do not claim that we have the sleekest TVs in the city, but the viewing experience at The Mezzanine *is* electric and exciting. If you give us a chance you will be part of a great crowd atmosphere, feel welcome & appreciated, and right at home.

Besides, where else can you go and win a pair of 2008 Texans Season Tickets just for watching the game? Hope to see you!

I've joined Andy and Katie over at Tobin's to watch the game... had a lot of work going on, and couldn't make the venture to downtown this weekend... plus it sounds like the new "location" to watch the games is in limbo still... so there we have it.

That would take care of the 'scenery' concern, but you just never know when they are going to envoke their 2 pitcher of beer maximum.

Besides, their seats /stools get uncomfortable after a while.

Hmmm. Does it help that our main Sunday day bartender came to us from Hooters? She was a trainer there and worked both places, but she decided she liked us better. ;)
