Don't know if any of you live in the Slaughter Lane/Circle C area or not but this place is pretty nice.

http://www.backspinaustin.com/

The website hasn't been built yet and the Gallery doesn't have the updated pics of the place. It just opened, and it's pretty cool. Don't let the gallery fool you into thinking this is a martini bar or something. Check it out. I live like a block away from this place.

Default Re: AUSTIN fans: Watch party location for 2009

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:

Quote:
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'!

Mark, Dave and sean

I went there with my wife for the very first preseason game. It's a very very small venue.

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.

Forgot to mention, their beer prices on Sunday are at happy hour rates, and the cheapest is probably the $2 Miller Highlife.

I did not know that, I have never been to the location on Rio Grande, thanks for the info, I only hit the RR one anyway, in fact I am heading up there in a couple of minutes since the Longhorn game is not Directv.

There were 4 others at Pluckers Round Rock besides myself and my son. Considering it was a home game and other local options (plus being on TV) I was glad to see them there. I'll be back again this Sunday.

I probably won't make it out there this Sunday, and I was at the game last Sunday. I will most likely just save up my money in case they stop airing the games cause then I will be there every Sunday.

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.
