I've seen your discussions about Third Base, but I have my issues with that venue. If Third Base doesn't work out this year, my proposition is Common Interest on Burnet. It might be too far north for some, but there's enough value in the idea to make the trip worth it.

1) Setup: There are tons of HD screens showing every NFL game at once, and a huge projection screen for the Texans.

2) Accommodation: The owner is friendly and will respond positively to a watch party. He also lets people BBQ out front, and they have wi-fi. Parking is plentiful.

3) Availability: It's spacious but almost empty on Sunday, despite the recent remodel and new TV's. It's a vacuum waiting to be filled by the right crowd.

If you don't know the story, the venue was rebuilt with insurance money and grants from the city, so everything inside is new and the audio/video setup is high-end.

I like the Texans crowd at Pluckers, too, but the space is too small. I expect the Texans fanbase to grow this year as they get more national attention.

Get me their feelings on allowing for one TV to have the closed captioning turned on and I'll see if I'm interested. I had problems with Third Base in the past regarding that but I'm game if that place becomes the watch party. I'm done with Third Base South.

I was going to start going to Pluckers and try out Third Base North this season since I just moved to Pflugerville.

The projection screen will have the volume on, but he'll probably put CC on one TV if asked. The TV-to-customer ratio is very high, with many TV's not being watched. I also know he's very accommodating to anyone with a disability.

UPDATE: I spoke to the owner of Common Interest, and he said he'd be thrilled to have a Texans crowd every Sunday. He'll show the game on the huge projection screen with the volume on. He'll even put the game on one of the other TV's for closed captioning.

One of the things I like about this place is that he has 25 other HD TV's showing every game in the NFL, so I can watch all my fantasy players. They also have wi-fi so I can track my fantasy scores on my laptop.

It's a good setup. It's clean, spacious, and there are cute chicks working the bar.

Sounds intriguing thus far.

They have food? And a large viewing area for Texans fans? Third Base reserved the back room for us and put on a fair share of the TVs on Texans back there.

Most importantly... location?

They have bar food, like hotwings, nachos, etc. Free popcorn. They don't have a full kitchen like Third Base, but the owner is accommodating to anyone who wants to BBQ in the parking lot. I've seen a couple who BBQ's out front to sell to the patrons.

The main viewing area for the projection screen is quite large. The entire bar is about the same size as Third Base, but a much smaller crowd, so seating is never an issue.

It's located on Burnett near 183, next to Slick Willy's. Here's the Google map:

Actually I am on board with this, at least to try it out. My schedule this season will allow me to make some watch parties if they are faily close which this place is for me. If it works out I will even promote them a little on the site.

I think you'd dig it. The guy has more authentic Longhorn memorabilia on display than any place I've seen. Signed footballs, jerseys, photos, etc.

During the daytime there's no kareoke, but I'm sure they'll have Priest ready for you after the evening game. Maybe even some Maiden.

I've always maintained that a central location is the most logical. Third Base (so far) is the best option for that. For all it's short comings, it's central. If we actually win a few games, the place can be a great home. Good turn out means revenue, means we can get Nitro his CC. The best turnout we've ever had was when we weren't televised and we were 1-0. Get us off t.v. or start winning games and the turnout will come back.

I have season tickets so I'm only an option for some of the games which means I don't have much pull in the decision making. In the end it doesn't matter. If they don't have liquor I wouldn't attend anyway. Liquor (not just beer), lots of Texans fans, good picture quality are the most important things. The rest is semantic.

I don't try to rally the troops anymore. Nobody followed. I got shot out there. We've never had a winner though. If we do, people will show. It will be a good. Until we do...

Go Texans.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the watch party is wherever I'm watching the game. So, the Minnesota watch party starts at about 1pm in my car. At 3:30 it continues in the Blue Lot and in Reliant Stadium at about 7:30 pm... There will be an afterparty back in the Blue lot and will continue in my car until about 2 AM. Just PM me and let me know when we can expect you. I know Barrett is in!

Accommodation matters most. It'd be silly to not drive an extra 10 miles for a venue that actually wants you there. I like Third Base in general, and the location's great, but we can't rely on management that only caters to our needs when the Texans are doing well. If there was an ideal central location, we would've found it already.

I'd be coming from the Oak Hill/ Dripping Springs area.......about how far am I looking to get to common interest? I never go to the north side of town. I thought 3rd base was ok, but I know that there were issues.....been going there for past couple years and seen the problems with the CC and some of that stuff. Place sounds alright.....just want to know approximate on time especially if it's rainy all weekend. Also, I guess I would just take MoPac from 290/71 up to 183 N? I'll try to google it but their approximations suck, so if any one can guess the travel let me know.

Not sure if I can make it this Sunday or not.....will depend on rain and my money (payday today). If I do make it, some of you guys I may have met uner my old screen name of H-Town Balla 90. I know I've met NitroHonda, rickyb and a few others at 3rd base last year.

Any head counts yet?

I got an email from Pluckers saying that they want to make the Rio Grande location a spot to watch the Texans games.

Here's the email:

After watching the Longhorns game this week, we realized how much fun it is to be surrounded by an entire bar of fans cheering for the exact same team! And we thought, why stop there? Let's extend this great feeling to the NFL!

We'll be hosting NFL Watch parties for different teams at many of our locations this year. And we've been sure to tell everyone not to worry because we'll still have the sound on the Cowboys and Texans games. But why stop there?

Calling all Texans fans! We want Pluckers Rio Grande to be THE place to watch the Texans games this year! Join us each week for the Texans games and be surrounded by other Texan fans! And of course, we'll still have all the other NFL action on our many plasma TVs.

Happy Football Season! Keep Pluckin'!

If you stay on Mopac northbound, it would be an extra 12 to 15 minutes of drive time than 3rd Base.

From Mopac, take the 183 flyover eastbound (right lane), take the exit off the flyover to Burnett Rd., turn south (right) on Burnett, and it's about a mile down. Big stripcenter with a Slick Willy's in it.

Here's the email:

Pluckers at Rio Grande was fun when I saw a Texans game there, but the venue is too small. There were no extra seats available. As the Texans' fanbase in Austin grows, this would become a bigger problem.

There's also no parking down there because of other businesses like Cain & Able's.

edit: When I say "no parking", I mean "limited parking". There's a parking garage next door if you feel like paying for it. The other option is to show up an hour early. It's the campus area, so parking's always a problem.

Only a couple people were there to watch the Texans. The owner is a Cowboys fan, but he put the Texans game on the big screen and the Cowboys on a small one because he's committed to attracting a Texans customer base. When I told him only a couple Texans fans showed up, he said that's to be expected early on.

Of course, if the Texans can't win against tough opponents, no one will come out anyway.

My son and I will be there with my Bronco buddy. I think Hardcore Texan will be there if he gets his honeydo list done. Not sure if Joe will be coming with him or not. Had some good Texan fans there last week.

We will be outside around the bar.

It's also home to the Austin Bears fans (GM is a Bear), and they also cater to the Ravens (as they do for the Texans)...so should be pretty rowdy for the Ravens/Bears game..which that sound will likely be out on the patio part outside, and we should have the sound for the bar area outside.

Sure would be nice to have a comparable gathering like that for Texans fans. Maybe we can make it happen one of these years.

Last night I watched the Saints game at Shoal Creek Saloon. It's a large bar with a lot of seating and was packed with rowdy fans wearing Mardi Gras beads and yelling "Who Dat?!"

I agree, and I have tried since 2002, in fact once we had at least 60 people show up. But over time it just kept getting worse, sometimes it waonly my there, even though I had an email list over 100 that I sent weekly reminders of the event. Good Luck!
Shaol Creek Saloon has always been the Saints home, thats why they have vw bug on the roof painted like a Saints helmet. I hope you tried some of the food, its all good there.

The food's excellent.

If this economy wasn't so hostile to start up businesses, I would even consider opening up my own Texans bar. VW helmet and all. I know there are enough fans in Austin to make it happen, but they won't congregate. Maybe winning will remedy that.

I just discovered that Posse East near campus has a gathering of Texans fans. I'm going to give it a try this Sunday.

Me and my two boys will be up at Pluckers RR for the game, and the enemy (Bronco Boy) will be there too.

Yea! I'm still alive. Cancer ain't got jack on me! OK. Last reg.season game, with a CHANCE of making post season. Is there anybody gathering for the game, other than way up in RR? Looking for something Mid town or south. This could happen guys, let's not miss it!

Any chance that IF the Texans get into the playoffs tonight there can be some huge assed Texans Playoff watch party next week that is NOT in Round Rock? Seriously. Anything in Austin or Central Austin we could all meet up at?

WilCo has too many cops on power trips for me and most people I know to ever want to drive to RR and have even 1 beer. I'm paranoid and never drive drunk anyway....but RR....eff Williamson County and the drive to and from RR.

I'm totally down if there is some other place........

I think the Round Rock people kind of feel the same way about driving out to central Austin.

Taxi cabs for the win.

I'll take Travis Co. cops over WilCo ANY DAY ANY TIME. Their is a HUGE difference. WilCo will pull you over just to do it and see what they get. I'm no cop hater, but that is some BS.

Other than that, of course I can see that people that live north would want to stay north. I also know that there are a ton of Texans fans here down South. I would just assume that the City of Austin proper would have the majority of Texans fans and that it could be a place "in the middle" if you will where we could all come together, take some bar over and enjoy the 1st ever Playoff Texans game.

I personally live in Dripping Springs, so, going into Downtown or Central Austin is no 5 minuute trip for me either.

Like I said, some place in the middle.......If undo able, so be it. Wouldn't think it would be some stretch of the imagination.

as a fellow south austin texans fan i love to meet up somewhere a little closer than rr so if we make it we should really think about putting something together!
