    As much as I'd like to stay in Htown for Sundays game, I need to head back to LA. Looking to hang with some REAL Texan fans for the game Sunday. Any groups getting together at a sports bar?

    I don't know any other Texans fans here in LA but I still go to the bars to watch the games, I would love to meet up with other Texans fans!

    Last weeks attempt to get together a watch party failed but I am willing to try again.

    Matrix31 lives.... somewhere in Cali.

    That compares to up here in Seattle.... I saw one in the light rail tunnel a few weeks ago, but that was it.

    Back in the Oiler days, we use to have a nice crowd at Yankee Doodles in Santa Monica. If any of you are on the Texans site, let's get together again.

    I'm down in the OC, but I could be talked into meeting up somewhere. Would necessitate less drinking than last weekend, but that may not be a bad thing.

    I actually live in LA, but I'm kinda peculiar about how I watch my games lol. I like to watch in my room where I can yell and scream to my heart's content, etc. Also like having my computer right by me so I can look stuff up.

    Only way I'd watch a Texans game at a bar is if EVERYBODY in the bar was a Texans fan, a la those videos of those bars going nuts when TJ hooked up with the division-clinching TD.

    You guys have fun though. Might wanna do this next year for a regular season game!

    I'm good with either Yankee Doodle's or Barney's Beanery. Standard sports bar fare...although I'd prefer the Santa Monica Barney's to Hollywood....

    Although, Barney's claims to have Shiner on tap (although, I don't remember it being on tap at the Pasadena location) and Yankee Doodles does not, so that's enough to swing the equation in my book :)

    I have never been to the Barneys in WeHo or any of the others, only one I have been to is Burbank.

    WeHo one I guess is the original and looks smaller.

    I still vote for the Barney's in Santa Monica simply b/c I prefer the...uhh...scenery there over Burbank.

    That being said I will follow the 'wisdom of the crowd' if Burbank is the preferred location.

    Sounds good! I'm gonna try and get there when they open at 9 and stake out some space. How many people are we expecting?

    Here's the address for those unwilling to google:
    1351 3rd St. Promenade, Santa Monica, CA 90401

    BTW, my name is Tom and I'll be in my Battle Red 80 jersey. See you tomorrow!

    Go Texans! Bulls On Parade! :)

    I will be going Solo, no other Texans friend fans here or friends that are willing to leave at 9AM on a Sunday to watch football.
    Perfect reason why LA football teams could not stick lol.
