Houston Texans of Austin Fan Club will be at Third Base on 6th. Free parking in the garage, great food, cold drinks and all the TV screens you can handle. The Texans game will be on the loud speaker and the house will be packed, so there won't be any assigned seating - just bring it!

I'm curious why this has suddenly changed from Lavaca St. Bar. The establishment there has been good to us. I seem to remember Third Base not being nearly as appreciative of our business back when it was the Texans spot.

That's not the same group. The one you met us up with is still going to be at Lavaca this Saturday.

Here is the link to the Facebook you are thinking of and the last pics from the Thursday night game (I think you are in here but forget)...

Anyway, look forward to seeing you man at Lavaca if you want....

Ok, makes sense. I saw a banner at Lavaca St about a Texans fan club, so I thought it was the same group. More Texans bars in Austin is a good thing anyway.

I'm sticking with the big group we have at Lavaca Street Bar. They have treated us better then 3rd Base ever did. The Texans also recognize us as the Official Fan Group of Austin and have sent us boxes of T-Shirts, caps, stickers, etc.etc. So it is hard to turn your back on that.
Not to mention that the beers and drinks cost half as much as they do at 3rd Base.
But have fun and GO TEXANS!

Interesting!!! The more Texans fans the better, but I will tell you the official group has watch parties every game at Lavaca Street Bar.

Here is a link and the more the better! http://www.facebook.com/groups/austintexan/

We will have some give aways as well directly sent to us by the Houston Texans!!!

Man, it would be so cool to be there. Would love to hang out with you guys.

Here's my status as of now. I may have to work, don't know for sure. I have already started the process of selling my tickets but don't really want to and have not obligated to anyone yet. I hate the idea of not going, but if I do have to work I will be home in time to watch it with my wife, we watch together and if it weren't for small kids and lack of trusted babysitters, I would make it to more of the watch parties! if I don't work than I need to go!

I used to get watered down after work at Lavaca back in the day and haven't been there in a long time. I plan to do so again this Saturday, duck out of work an hour early, grab my dingy old Texan shirt and head downtown.

I am excited, nervous, scared, and ready. GO TEXANS!!!!!

So far my close friends don't want to go, so I may take ATEXFAN up on riding with his crew if I don't have to work. Or if one of you diehards wants to go and will drive I'll sell you my other ticket at face and cover the parking. All this assuming I can get out of work and I somewhat know the person I would be traveling with.

I just saw a laugher of a story on FOX7. They went to interview store owners and employees to see how the Texans gear was selling.

All said, of course, that they couldn't keep the stuff on the shelves no matter how much they order. Predictable.

The funny part was they almost all said "because the Texans are in the playoffs" which jumped off the TV at me. How about, because your stock was always (in many cases) literally nothing and suddenly *poof* - whatever you want. Internet sales or not, I think a lot of Texans gear sold on top of the new demand because it was finally there.

Oh, and Cowboys stuff? On sale and not selling. :zipit:

The Houston Texans are in the playoffs and as the proud affiliate of the 2011 AFC South champions, we're celebrating with a Texans playoff watch party fit for the lone star state!
Join us this Saturday at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar as we watch the Houston Texans battle Lifetime Longhorn Cedric Benson and the Cincinnati Bengals on the big screen!
The Zone's Rod Babers will be in attendance and we'll have plenty of Texans prizes to give away, as well as drink specials so you can watch the game like any good tailgater would.
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is the premiere spot for watching football in Austin. They feature the games on their movie screen with state of the art video projection. With the *possible* exception of live in the stadium, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is the best spot for the serious football fan. All eyes in the auditorium are focused on the movie screen, where the action on the field will be larger than life!

This show is free, but you can guarantee yourself a seat by purchasing a $5 Food/Beverage voucher.

I was just about to ask if anyone was going to be going to the Watch Party at the Drafthouse on South Lamar. I was looking at pics of the Lavaca St Bar and that place looks like it will be packed. We have never been there and wanted to be with other Texans fans but not sure if it's okay since it looks like you have a lot of regulars there. Wanted to hit either that spot or the drafthouse.

Those dbs at the Zone can kiss my sweaty ass! EFF THEM IN THEIR EARHOLES. They've mocked the Texans for a looooong, long time...always always always bringing up VY and the Titans, rarely giving any respect to the franchise or the team's fans in the Greater Austin area. Now that the Texans are winning, they think they can hitch their wagon to us and let the Texans' success be a springboard for their own little PR stunt?

For what it's worth I know one of the guys there (on air guy) and for years I've bluntly told him about it. I listened for the first time in forever the other day and heard one of them say he thought the Texans were going all the way. I almost called in but didn't.

I agree with all of what y'all say about the Zone and their pr stunt.
Texanator may be calling me out but after getting PSL's in 1999 and getting my name on the glass wall at the stadium and hanging with the Blue Crew for several years tailgating, and suffering through so many low attended watch parties after emailing a group of over 100 names and then fading into oblivian. I am ready to celebrate with what looks to be the best fan group here in the ATX since this whole thing started, no way I would go anywhere else, nuff said.
Big Wig will be in da house at Lavaca Street
PS several years ago they had a watch party when the team stunk, I was there along with 5 or 6 fans and they also had a player and a couple of cheerleaders, so I asked if i could keep the banner they had for Lavaca st and the Texans and I have it in my Texan man cave still. Its about a 4ft x 6ft banner that hangs on the wall.
