Houston meetup, Saturday, June 18! More inside.

I'm thinking either Empire Cafe or Taft Street Coffee, two places in the Montrose neighborhood with bottomless coffee, open until 11 and midnight on Saturday, respectively.

Any other suggestions are welcome; I don't know the bars like I know the cafes. But if any underage mefites want to come, let's make it accessible to them. Here's a list of cafes in Houston, and here's a list of bars.

Great. I'm gonna be in California most of this month. Take pictures. Give me a shoutout. Fuckers.

Truth be told, If I owned hell & Houston, I would choose to live in hell & rent out Houston.

Ok, so jonson's out.

I'm not much of a coffee person, but I could be down for anything, really.

Jonson lives in CA anyway. His line reminded me of Lucille Bluth.

Name a bar, Cyrano, and I'll come.

Props to the callout - funniest show ever. While I don't live in the O.C., the Bluth Banana Stand (the Big Yellow Joint) is actually in Marina del Rey (Los Angeles) about half a mile from my work.

Unless anyone RSVPs by Sunday night, I'm cancelling this meetup and making my own plans.

Jonson, take a photo? I'll owe you a minor sexual favor.

I'd be happy to take the photo, but sadly the Bluth Banana Stand is just a prop that only gets put up during filming, so all you'd see is the surrounding Marina area...

Tsk, you're off:

"It's an illusion, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money."

Michael nods to the onlooking children. GOB sees them and turns.

"Or candy!"

Can you take a picture in front of Pink's, jonson? I have a hard time deciding whether I'd rather go there or The French Laundry (for the experience, ya' know.)

Okay, forget it, I hereby cancel the June 18 meetup. I'ma go meet some girls instead.

A lurker IMed me today. We're still hopeful for a third, if one wants to join us. She's just 17, so I guess that rules out a bar.

Well, if anyone in Houston wants to meet up, they'll have to IM or e-mail me.
