I KNOW I just had a sticky put up, but I found a new bar last night. Please vote. (it is literally 1 block away from Pub Fiction)

Pub:
Plus: proven food and drink specials
Minus: Cannot accomodate us really other than noon Sunday games; secondary TV's are kinda' small
Parking: pay valet, plenty of Sunday noon parking


Coaches Pub:
Plus: management is willing to work with us to ensure the games are on, seating, etc., all the TV's are pretty big
Minus: menu is small, management has assured me it will expand when football starts; no web site, current Sunday special is $1.50 drafts (and some other stuff), management said they'll likely have some kind of Texans game day special as well
Parking: strip mall parking lot, free valet may be brought in if the lot starts filling

Coaches and Pub are both good places..Why not switch back and forth, support both local business..always good to have good standings at multiple places...

Consistency. Both for the fan's sake and the bar's sake. I'm leaning towards Coaches, personally. I love Pub and am friends with most of the staff (and they used to pay our rent), and they're always accommodating. But their ability to accommodate us is limited by the fact their primary business is being a midtown bar/lounge, not as a sports bar.

I think Coaches needs the business a bit more, and would be willing to let us bring in a P/A, a board for squares, etc. (not that Pub has ever said no, but I'd feel weird asking, it's not that kind of place, lol).

Should we get a big enough regular crowd (big if), I can bring the OSU Club PA system, should we start doing squares, trivia, half time games, etc. (that would require prize donations).

[tried to edit the poll to add a "both" option, don't think I can]

I know Pub Fiction has this site... Pub Fiction (http://www.pubfiction.com/index2.html)
But do know if Coaches Pub has one? The only one I can find is for the Coaches Bar up on the NW side...

Coaches does NOT. Same owner as the Dog House Tavern, some of the same bar staff.

Y'all figure it out and I will be there (most of the time anyway)... BUT, my only request is hot waitresses... Pub Fiction was good for that.

You know I LOVE Pub Fiction, so if I am suggesting Coaches it must be a pretty ideal location. But I'll work it out where ever those who plan on attending would rather go.

The only issue I have with Coaches, is that for me, the drive it might as well be Tobins again. Okay, maybe not quite that far, but......

Downtown is about as central as you can get...

Hey I like Tobins...It is only about 3 miles from the house...I can drive home with my eyes closed...
Not that I have ever done that... :toast2: :shots: :drunk:

Tobin's? Isn't that on 529 or W Little York? I know I have seen it while out working.

Coaches is 1 block away from Pub Fiction. It is called Coaches Pub (I think) and is not listed any where online yet.

I am NOT referring to the "Coaches Sports Bar and Grill" on 290 past 8.

You can stand in the parking lot and look at Pub.

Next door to this addy:

2204 Louisiana St
Houston, TX 77002

Right....

I never had a problem with Tobin's itself. They treated us well... The drive there wasn't so bad, but dang, that made for one long drive home.

Tobin's is on Jones Rd, about 1 1/2 miles north of 1960...

As for the location, it will probably depend on how I'm feeling that day... if I'm willing to drive in to Downtown or just stay close by the house...

But the scenery would also have a BIG influence on that decision as well...

Pub Fiction is 10x better than coaches. Don't like to valet? Park on the street. There's LOTS of free street parking around. Pub is the only way to go.

I just see 4 games on the schedule that we won't be able to watch at Pub. (though 2 are preseason). I'd also like to get more of a "watch party" going and at IMHO Pub we're rather limited to "group of fans watching the game."

I'll go with the poll vote.

I am not sure about the attractiveness of Coaches' waitstaff.

So go check it out this weekend :-P Just picture us in there, guaranteed to have every game on, probably reserved seating, and otherwise free reign of the place. We could invite the twins back and reinstitute half time games.

What about 702? They have tons of TVs and lots of room. I bet they would be more than willing to accomodate. I think they have a full menu as well.

*Rolls Eyes* Whatever. They weren't that hot, and they were all kinds of obnoxious.

As for the vote, I'll choose Coaches, I guess. Doesn't really matter to me.

You got that right Katie!! I only went to one watch party and they ruined my day. Couldn't watch the game for those two making fools out of themselves.

I'm not going to vote cause I don't get to go to many watch parties anyway. Usually have to work when our TEXANS are playing out of town. BUT, just wanted to express my opinion about the "twins." A woman's right ya know!!:yap

I say give Coaches a try. They are willing to work with us and Yankee said there was a plus when it comes to fitting us in.

If it doesn't work out, we can always change back.
