Hey guys, it's been a while since I have regularly posted on here. I would like to propose however that we at least have one game get-together like the old times. I know everyone is spread out all over town, but I think we can at least find one place for one party.

I would make an appearance especially to hook up with the old crew.
However as you stated about being spread out , we already have that North bias going, they were first to jump on it.
Ok, Pluckers but why not the one on 183 and Burnet, or the one on S Lamar?
The GM of the one on 183 is a TEXANS fan and will always have the game on.

I moved to the North side now near Braker, so I guess RR wouldn't be that far....but....I hate rollin into WilCo or out of it if I'd had even one beer.

I'm hoping we can do something in Travis, but I'd love to meet up, so whatever. Will keep an eye out for where and when for sure. Haven't seen yall in a season or so I think.

Well of course the people up north want to meet up north and same goes for the people down south, it's not just us. I went down to 3rd Base back in the day. So I am not opposed to making a drive. The Pluckers is RR is bigger though than the 183 location.

Ohhh, Cover3 is a good idea! and it's on Anderson lane and Burnet rd. So, that's centalized for everyone. I'd be up for a get-together versus Washington in week 2.... going to the game versus Indy.

I advise against Cover 3. They're "upscale" and expensive and don't even know if they want to be a sport bar.

Centrally located bars I'm familiar with:

The Pluckers near campus is already a Texans hangout. The problem is indoor space and parking. I'm going to give them a try.

My good friend is the manager of the Varsity Bar located inside Austin's Pizza on the drag, and he would love to have a Texans watch party there. It's very spacious, but again, parking is the problem. They're also waiting on new TV's.

Posse East next to campus now has Texans neons up and the owner told me he'd like to have a watch party, but Cowboys fans go there too, and they would have dibs on the big TV if the two teams played at the same time. This option would be ideal otherwise.

Cain & Abel's is hostile to watch parties that aren't UT.

Little Woodrow's central doesn't have great seating like the north location. You'd end up sitting outside during the winter.

Champions is awesome and the drinks are reasonable for a downtown joint, but it's full of fans for every team. The place wouldn't be our own. Still a great sportsbar.

I haven't tried Joe's on NFL Sunday. Might be worth checking out. It's near Molotov's.

There's also the Tavern, Third Base, Little Woodrow's on the drag, Joe's near Molotov's...

I live up north, but the only way this is going to work is to make it central. The last time I tried organizing this at a north location, south folk didn't bother, while northies went to Round Rock.

My highest recommendation is Posse East though.

Cover 3 is way too upscale for a football type gathering. Just take a look at the menu and the prices and you will see what I mean.
I am glad you have given lots of suggestions but it seems like most lof them are Campus locations and are frat bar hangouts.

Trying to keep it central. Posse isn't a frat hangout though-- more like students and UT alumni.

Anything around my area (Anderson Ln) isn't going to be considered central by people who live south.

In fairness I've only been to the S. Lamar location, but every time I've been the food is very meh and the atmosphere very lacking. If I were at that location I'd rather go across the street to Red's Porch.

Third Base downtown is always solid. Or Cover 3...or the Posse East...

Get out of my head! I posted before I read this and agree. Posse East is very close to my house and I've always enjoyed going there, even though in the past I've been the only person there rooting for the Texans. There are a lot of VYknobslobbers and Titans fans there, but I suspect the Texans fraternity has grown substantially since I last watched a game at the Posse.

Ha, Billy's is out of the question. It's a great bar and I've known the owner for years, but it's the rowdiest Packer bar in Texas. It's actually a perfect example of what a watch party bar should be, which is why I get frustrated that we don't have something like that for our team, which is located a lot closer than Green Bay.

I'll have to talk to the owner at Posse before we flashmob it. We'll get dibs on the big TV if enough people start showing up. We could be competing with Cowboys and Titans fans, but we can overrun that bar if we get everyone to commit. It really is the best centrally located sports bar for a watch party. Plentiful indoor/outdoor seating, parking, many different beers on tap, and good prices.

Nice place, but 100% Packer Central on Sunday. Billy is an Aggie, for those interested.

3rd Base stopped accommodating the Texans watch party.

This reminds me of how much of a difference it makes when the owner or manager is a fellow fan.

I've been told by bartender friends that waitstaffs hate watch parties because they're cheap and don't tip well. They just order soda, or only two beers, or they bring their kids. Those things don't matter when the manager just wants to watch the game with other fans. It's the reason why Billy's is so much fun for Packers games, or why Pluckers near campus has a successfully rowdy Texans crowd.

The only centrally located bars I know of that have owners/managers like this are Pluckers and Varsity Bar on the drag.

Really? Is there a backstory here that I missed?

No doubt. There is no better example of this than Shoal Creek. I've lived in Austin a lot longer than all these young whippersnappers, since back in the Oilers' Run-N-Shoot heyday when we Oiler fans had to battle Cowboys fans for viewership rights at local watering holes, and even back then Shoal Creek was a Saints fan's sanctuary. Bud has done well for himself by sticking with that formula and now that the Saints are defending champs it's damn near impossible to watch any game there on Sundays.

I've been told by bartender friends that waitstaffs hate watch parties because they're cheap and don't tip well. They just order soda, or only two beers, or they bring their kids.

This is absolutely true. If you intend on sitting at a bar or table for 3+ hours to watch a football game, it is your duty to consume food and beverages and tip well. That $2 Lone Star draft you ordered two hours ago does not give you squatter's rights over valuable real estate for an extended period of time, only for you to then tip your cocktail waitress a buck. To my fellow Texans fans, I say this--these businesses are there to make some money on game day and you'd do well for all of us if you remember this. Time is money. If you can't spend some coin watching the Texans kick ass this season with your ATX Texans brethren, stay home and watch.

The only centrally located bars I know of that have owners/managers like this are Pluckers and Varsity Bar on the drag.

I haven't been to either. Are both places Texans-centric?

Brisco_County
08-07-2010, 03:39 PM
I discovered the Pluckers campus location by accident when I was working next door on a Sunday. I was later told that the manager had solicited Texans fans and was trying to gather a loyal customer base. The reason I didn't start going is because Common Interest near my house has the NFL Sunday Ticket on 30 HD screens and wireless for my fantasy scores.

Varsity Bar is the upstairs bar of Austin's Pizza on the drag. The bar really needs some interior work and new TV's before it can compete.

I forgot to mention the Tavern, though I haven't watched a game there.

What I'll do is head to Pluckers for the first preseason game and inquire about the Texans watch parties. I really think that it and Posse are our best options for central locations.

I called both Posse and the Pluckers campus location. Pluckers said they will be showing the Texans game along with the Titans, and there will probably be a lot of Texans fans there. "A lot" is way more than what I've seen at any sports bar in this city. I think the most Texans fans I've ever seen is two.

Posse said they'll probably have the game, but they get a lot of Cowboys fans in there, so I'll be going to Pluckers.

I'd like to get together and watch some games with some fellow fans. They seem hard to come by in Austin. I used to watch at the Pluckers on S. Lamar and there was only 1 other Texan fan there regularly, so it wasn't the greatest atmosphere.

A central location would be awesome for me. I'm in South Austin so Round Rock Pluckers would be quite a drive.

I have been reluctant to mention this place due to how closely I live to it but they are obviously Texan Friendly! The place is kinda small but I don't think we would overwhelm them. And I don't know if i could get there every away game and make sure we had seats and all...bu that being said, Zingers in the Bee Cave Galleria is hosting Toro and the Cheerleaders Friday night and having a watch party Saturday night with ticket give aways!
What do ya'll think?
I am waiting on a call back from the owner to see what the Sunday tv rules are...in case there is a cowboy game on opposite the Texans...will let you know

While that place is probably pretty cool and I do love that area, it's way too far out there for me. Thanks for the info though. It's good to know they're at least trying to promote the team in Austin.

If anyone else here wants to try Pluckers on campus again, I'll show up. Otherwise, there are other bars that I want to check out too.

Thanks so much for the feedback and we’ll definitely take that into consideration for our next visit to the Austin area. For this trip, we have been working with our partners and some of the confirmations on locations got delayed. Thanks again and we look forward to a great season. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance.

Daniel,

Thank you for notice, and thinking about us fans in Austin. Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend as I will be out of town.

This event may have just come to fruition, but it would help to have more notice as I would opine that many Austin season ticket holders are professionals, and live out of their calendars. Consequently, we schedule weeks, if not months, in advance.

Looking forward to a great season!

My girls got a kick out of it, they really wanted to see Toro, but he was on a break.

Good seeing you at Pluckers on Saturday night.

Are there gonna be any watch parties this year in central or South Austin? We used to have some fun ones.

I looked for another thread where we were discussing this and could not find it. As I know it to be right now we haven't come up with the exact game or place but we have been talking about it.

Hopefully one of the others will happen by with the link. Once we have the place and date I think there will be a great turnout. :fans:

EDIT: Found it. Click here (http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73901&highlight=watch+party).

Hey Guys,
I just spoke with the owner of Rockin Tomato on South Lamar. He told me he'd LOVE to have us come there. They have a great buffet during the day and it's pretty cheap. We'll have the big screen dedicated to us. He said he'd also make beer specials for us etc. He also said that the 3:00 games, he'd make specials on food due to the buffet ending at 2:00. The only draw back is they don't have hard liquor. He did say he thinks that set ups will be O.K. though. And noted as long as it's under the radar , blah blah blah.
Does this sound good to anyone else? They also do hand made burgers, hoagies, spaghetti, pasta, soups, etc. with a great salad bar as well.
I know it's a little south, but we'll be the masters of our own domain.
GO TEXANS!

Place sounds friggin awesome man, but my money is a little tight right now plus as it is the 1st game of the season, I plan on just grilling in my backyard and getting hammered (it's a yearly first football game tradition now that the I'm single again provided I don't have my daughter opening day), so not planning on driving. But do update or PM me if a bunch of people show up and this pans out cause I'd be down for sure. I live north near Braker, but I'd rather drive South than North into WilCo for sure.

Any topping pizzas you want, salad bar, etc.etc.etc. and drink for under $8.00 during the week, and he promises special deals for us that will probably be at least as good if not better.

Gonna be stuck at a bday party during the game :choke:

But in general..... RR = WilCo = much greater chance of DUI and all around COP douchery (and I have nothing against cops and am thankful for their service, but WilCo is another story) = FAIL (IMO)

Believe me, I don't drink and drive which is why friends always come to my house to BBQ and drink and watch games or whatever cause they know I'm not driving. Not risking custody issues with my daughter. But I know that if I go to watch a game I will want literally one to 2 beers then have some lunch and sober up before I leave. But I won't even risk that in WilCo. I live near Braker and 35 north so I'm not that far from RR, but I'd rather drive to somewhere central or even south than RR.

What was the problem with 3rd Base those last couple years? We dominated that place and I thought it was ok outside of the inbred hootinanie fan I almost got into it with......:aggressive:

I'll be at Pluckers with my Bronco buddy, and maybe a couple others. We'll be at the outside bar area...they will have the volume on for the Texans game. Chicago and Baltimore both play at noon so there will be some of their fans left over since the GM is a Bear fan and has the Bears watch parties there, they play the Cowboys this week so there should be a full house at noon.

Myself and 3 others are going to the Pluckers on 183 and Burnet. Its a bit more central for us south folks and definately not in Wilco. The GM is a Texans fan and while I was eating lunch he spotted my watch and badge holder and said even if the Gurls are on he will always show Texans.

Good for yall, that's awesome! To clarify the RR GM is a Bears fan, but the manager in RR is a Texans Fan...he was also the outside bartender previosly that helped Hardcore Texan and myslef make it through the not so pretty games in previous years. He always comes around to make sure us Texan fans are being taken care of properly. I enjoy the fact that there area always fans from a lot of differnet teams out there. Makes for some good conversation...and razzing.

Glad to hear you guys have a good location in your area!

Well I would not say that always, after many years of trying to organize a fan club/watch party I just could not do it anymore. But I may make some there no doubt.

Change of plans, I am having some friends over and some co-workers so I will not be at Pluckers after all. If you do show, let me know how it is.

I guess this is the only Austin game thread. I'm in town this weekend and wanted to hit up a bar with my brother.

From the looks of things, Pluckers at Burnet and 183 is the best bet to see some other Texans fans, so I guess that's where we'll be at. Unless someone has a better idea.
