I agree - we should have a happy hour post pandemic.   Name tags with our real name and/or our HAIF username.

I'm all for it if it's on a weekend, since it's rare I'm in town Monday-Thursday these days. Downtown/Midtown/Montrose/Other Inner Loop are my preferences for location, but I can go anywhere if the gr

The Black Labrador used to be the traditional place for the mods to meet.  But that's gone.  So very sad.

*I'm going to see a friend's band play that night out in the boonies, and of course they never know in advance when they're going on - but I can't imagine it would be so early that I couldn't stop by for at least one drink at 6:00... Now I just need to figure out how to pronounce tmariar.

[Highway6 - Warren's is on Market Square, downtown.]

Where is Warrens ?

307 Travis, between Preston and Congress (across from Market Square park)

ad an asterisk to my name, too - i have to go to the airport after work, so i would be there way past 6

I can go to Warren's or anywhere, really.

I don't drink alcohol, though, I hope they serve coke. :)

don't worry, i don't drink either B) always the designated driver :)

in college when i accompanied my friends to a club i'd be the only one with a water bottle in hand, lol

good call - saying screen names out loud can be odd

for me, sevfiv is just a shortened number (seventyfive) so i will say sevfiv is pronounced "seventyfive" :P

Fantastic. I'm all for calling people numbers like secret agents. I think I'll pronounce tmariar as "fifty-two".

Musicman, will the bartender be able to point you out? Alternatively, you could wear a red carnation and carry a copy of the Houston Architectural Guide...

the velvet-like material has always been an eyecatcher.

don't forget to post lots of pics!!

look forward to seeing how the get together turns out and how this place warren's looks like...

last time i thought people said they didn't want to post pics so that more people would come next time. out of curiosity.

That's honestly all the photos we took at Warren's - we got caught up chatting.

But here's a photo from the show after b/c Sev rocks and went, too:

Let's see some pics with faces or is it you don't want people to know what you look like, that's cool with me. If you want to post my pic we will do lunch at Little Caesars at Aldine Westfield @ Hirshfield someday.

Sorry - I posted the only ones I took. I'm probably not the best person to count on for that kind of photo, though, as I do get camera shy in bars. It really was fun, and I forgot to mention that we also got to see Vertigo briefly. Sounds like others have some get-togethers in mind for the future, which is great, as different times and places will be convenient for different people. I'll try to organize something myself soon - thanks to musicman for taking the lead on this last one.

I would call 1st to make sure Slick's is still there and then maybe push out the grouping event 2 weeks out? There is a big Sand Castle contest this weekend in Galveston so some will be there.

Just a suggestion :mellow:

What firm are ya competing with ? Who is Gensler's archrival?

I havent been in a few years, but I plan on making it down this year.

hi highway, well i think a lot of firms are gensler's archrival, LOL but i only mean it in a jokingly manner :)

u know how it is all archi's know other archi's.

since i graduated from U of H i know peeps at many firms. i have friends at Kendall-Heaton, Morris, Kirksey, Gensler (but there's one guy there we dont care for, lol), studio red, hok, psp, and more. geez i didn't realize how spread out we are, but it's always good to keep ur connections cuz u never know when u'll need a favor.

i recently quit my last job and was able to get another one very quickly just cuz i knew ppl and they were able to get me in. i didn't even have to update my resume or even show work i've done. they just said oh u know so and so? they say ur good and have worked on so and so projects....welcome aboard! can't beat that :D

so highway are u a registered arhitect?? u def. have to make it out to one of the haif meet and greets. it's always good for us archi's to expand our network :)

What Galveston needs is a Dick's on the Sea Wall, now you're talking the place to be. The Alamo City has one and so does Big D, what's up with that? The one @ Myrtle Beach is the Sheeit hands down. Never a dull moment. For all you youngsters out the thinking about getting married and have prospective stuff shirt in-laws, take them to Dick's on the river-walk in San Antonio, and find out what they are really made of. The looks on their faces when the waiter walks up and says, "What in the F@#k do you want?" is priceless. My daughter Lindsay is engaged to a boy from NYC and his folks live up in the Hampton's. First time I met them up there, I knew they were candidates for Dick's. You want to talk about the most fun I have had in a long time, by the forth round of Patr
