    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.

    I'll be up for some of the away games, and can do South or North.

    Really? What specifically? I am a regular there and always have a great experience.



    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.

    I am also not a big fan of Wilco, its just too risky sometimes.
    So for now I will continue to monitor this thread and see what y'all come up with.
    Maybe I juts won't have a drink that would solve that! NOT!

    I'm easy. I live on the north side but I can swing whatever the masses prefer. I haven't been yet and am looking forward to it. :hurrah:

    We do need to come up with a central local:thinking:...I live in Bee Cave and, well, that is a far piece away:cowboy1:
    anyone know anything about cover3?
    been there for lunch, don't know about setting it up for Texans Fans! and yes I know that is still up north!
    How about Mulligans on 620?

    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.
    And so the saga continues...........

    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...
