Weekend in Houston

A buddy and I are heading to Houston this weekend, formally so he can golf in some charity event (he’s an executive at a pretty large corporation here in Dallas), but additionally so we can catch a Texans football game. So it’s a road trip, all the way. I understand he watches the wrong football team, but at least they’re from Texas. I don’t know how to feel about all that. It doesn’t matter who’s playing when you’re in the stands though, I suppose.

Anyway, during this golf charity event he’s playing Saturday morning, I’ll be running around Houston by myself. All the gir- um- people I used to know who lived in Houston, well – they no longer live in Houston. So I’ve been scouting my links and contacts and myspaces and facebooks, getting in touch with everyone I used to run with back then, trying to find a friend of a friend who still lives there. No such luck.

There was a bar down there I used to stop into occasionally. It’s called Rudyard’s. Now I checked, and it’s still open, but it looks like it’s moved or something. So I’m thinking I’ll hunt that down and probably vedge out there for a while on Saturday and maybe have a col’beer or two. If any of you beautiful (or not) readers would like to join me there, just swing on by and say hello. I’ll buy you a drink.

I’ll drop Roger off at the golf course around 0730, then probably run around until around noon or two, then if he’s done I’ll pick him up and we’ll head to the bar. If he’s not done, I’ll head there Celine Dion style: all by myself. Feel free to stop in and shoot the shoot.

    Wrong team, huh??? I dunno. That wrong team picked on your “right team” during pre-season. Granted pre-season, but it’s still judged by what’s on the scoreboard, kids!

    The point of the column, Roger, was not whose team is better. But that I’ll be down in Houston this weekend.

    I’m sorry, what’s Houston’s record? 2 and 2?

    Let’s stick to the road trip, k?

    Please tell me someone didn’t bring up a pre-season game as it’s significant or something.

    Scores only matter when they’re in the “Regular Season”

    Houston has a really interesting haunted house you might want to check out. I don’t have the link, but it shouldn’t be too hard to find. I think the gimmick is…topless strippers?

  5. Space says:

    That sounds fascinating, Rach. That’s just what I need. To have a woman running at me scaring me with her tits hanging out. To scar my fetish for the one thing in the world that really matters to me, and spend the rest of my life afraid of boobs.

  6. Moonshine says:

    I don’t think it’s really supposed to be scary, dude. I think it’s more about looking at strippers in latex. I can’t go because I have that damn allergy. Erg.

  7. Space says:

    Well Roger actually looked up the website after reading your comment – and said the girls were actually quite scary already. We talked about going. Here’s how that went:

    “So should we check it out?”
    “Yeah, you’re probably right.”
    “Let’s go grab a beer.”
