    As was realized in another thread (and I confirmed on the KEYE web site just now) the Cowfuqs will be on CBS at noon during our game as they host the Bills........:kubepalm:

    So, it's bar weekend if you want to see the game.

    It would be cool if we could all agree on somewhere probably central-ish if that works for everyone as we all live in different parts of the city and take some place over like we did years ago when the Texans were not on TV so that Austin could contine to gargle VY's jock and KEYE only played the Titans.

    Any good ideas?

    Guh, did not realize this. This means I have to spend money that I don't have.

    I'll probably end up at the Pluckers in RR, although I know that is usually too far North for a lot of folks.

    I'd prefer something North or central, as well, depending on what's best for the peolpe showing up. Pluckers on Research/Burnet is a decent spot, though that one is a bit small.

    Third Base on 6th Street is centrally located. Just saying.

    For the record, I live waaaaaay down south. So, all you guys waaaaaay up north (**cough**Round Rock**cough) can surely drive downtown. :specnatz:

    Hey. Whatever happened to Thomas/Spec :specnatz:

    all the best,

    I'd be down for 3rd Base on 6th (although I know that it wasn't the most popular destination and I think they didn't have closed captioning for Nitro or they refused to use it or something so I don't know if anyone still meets up there).

    I haven't been to the Pluckers C Madd mentioned but that is really close to my place so I'd be down for that.....either way.

    I'm not too picky.

    For those that live south, there is also a 3rd Base in S. Austin. It's inside South Park Meadows shopping area. Anyone have an idea if they will show the game there?

    There is a 3rd base in Round Rock as well. Me and my roomies will be going out so if there seems to be a consensus I am all for a "takeover". Thing I like about Pluckers is that they will have sound for both the Texans in one section and the Cowboys in another. I am worried that some places will have the Texans on a few TVs with the Cowboys sound everywhere.

    I've been meeting TexansTalk members and a handful of other Texans fans at Common Interest on Burnett almost every Sunday. People are always surprised by what a good football-watching venue it is. I can usually get them to put the Texans on the big screen, but they have the NFL Sunday Ticket on all 16 screens.

    Well, the Battle Red Bunch Tailgaters are coming over this weekend to Austin, and what rotten luck that dallas is gonna be the cbs game.
    So, we got 6 of us that are looking for a great TEXANS game watching spot.
    Been to Pluckers in Round Rock before, its pretty good.
    Where's the 3rd Base in Round Rock?

    So basically there will be small pockets of 4 or so members scattered here or there as opposed to a majority meeting up in 1 location....man.

    Austin is so small too, basically a glorified town, would think a few extra miles we could mostly all take some place over but may be wishful thinking on my end.

    I haven't been to coomon interest, so maybe I'll do that. I'm going to call some places today and see who can guarantee Texans will be on a big screen with sound. If I find anything I'll post here and hopefully that will attract some people.

    Thanks in advance. Haven't been to common interest either, so that is intriguing.

    I guess it wont be in Rockport area neither? Going to coast this weekend but will definitely be back sunday morning so what is the majority leaning toward? Looks like 3rd base (both locations), Pluckers (both locations), or Common Interest. Im good for wherever the majority will be along with making sure we get full sound.

    That's the thing, I think everyone is just doing their own thing. Will try to call some bars here soon to see who will guarantee optimal viewing. I hate watching a game with no sound....:vincepalm:

    agree, I love JC Fowlers about a mile from my house, but since the tv's are so close, they usually dont have the sound on which aint gonna work for me, especially with all the Cowgirl fans there.

    A friend of mine who works for KVET and AM 1300 THE ZONE has set up a deal with Blue Oak Grill in Round Rock. I just got off the phone with him and he tells me they will have the Texans on several of the big screens AND the sound for the Texans game. Here is a copy of his post on FB a few minutes ago.......

    Had to add my two cents worth. I wish everyone on here would just flood it...despite not living in the viewing area.
