It's December 15th. This time next week, you'll be anxiously watching the clock as the minutes tick by, inching you ever closer to the glorious festival that will be watching your Houston Texans play AFC South nemesis Indianapolis on Thursday Night Football.
Maybe you have NFL Network at your house. Maybe you don't. Regardless, you surely have a great place to watch the Texans play the Colts next week, surrounded by fellow Texans fans and some of the shining lights of the Battle Red Blog community. Details after the jump, as well as a request that you formally RSVP in the Comments.
WHAT: BRBAPALOOZA (Texans v. Colts)
WHEN: Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 7 p.m. (though I'd suggest getting there earlier to snag a good seat; the bar will get crowded on a Thursday night, especially with the Texans playing.)
WHERE: 360 Sports Lounge.
SPECIALS: $2.00 domestic drafts (yes, Shiner will be considered a domestic for those participating in BRBAPALOOZA), $3.00 wells, and happy hour prices for all appetizers on the menu (except for one appetizer, which will be served free of charge).
WHO: Texans fans. All of 'em.
We're also going to be passing a hat, or a jar, or a shoe, or whatever it is the kids do nowadays, for donations to benefit Fisher House. Donations are by no means required; if you don't want to give or can't give at the moment, don't sweat it. If you would like to make a donation, any amount will be much appreciated, and 100% of the donations will be going to the Fisher House.
Many of you have commented or e-mailed that you'll be in attendance. For the sake of me not having to hunt down that information in other threads or my inbox, I would respectfully ask that you let us know (1) if you'll be coming and (2) how many guests you'll have with you in the Comments below. That's probably the easiest way for me to let our friends at 360 know what kind of crowd we're looking at. If the comments and e-mails I've seen are any indication, we should have a rather boisterous and deep crowd.
Hope to see a ton of you good people there. Should be a blast.
