BRBAPALOOZA: Only Two Weeks Away!

New, comments

It's time for your weekly reminder about the upcoming BRB Watch Party for the Thursday night clash between your Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts (now with more Dan Orlovsky!). Our friends at 360 have upped the awesomeness, but you have to hit the jump to find out what I'm talking about.

The vital information for the event in question:

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.
WHO: Texans fans. All of 'em.

The bonus? Brandon has graciously pledged that a certain BRB-inspired appetizer will be served totally free of charge. You might recall the specific dish from this edition of the Battle Red Bag. To wit:

"The first thing that popped into my unmentored brain when I read this was Atomic Buffalo Turds. Take half a jalapeno, sliced lengthwise and seeded, and fill it with cream cheese. Shove a Lil' Smokie on top of the cream cheese, wrap the whole to-do in bacon (secure with a toothpick), dust with your favorite BBQ rub, and smoke at 250-275 until the bacon is crispy."

For a time, that dish, an off-the-menu appetizer at 360, was named after one of the illustrious writers here at BRB. Much to said writer's chagrin, it has since been hilariously renamed in light of said writer's failure to attend one of the many BRB soirees at 360.

Want to know what the new name is? I'll tell you at 360 on December 22, 2011.

From the comments and e-mails I've received, it appears that we're going to have a good crowd. If you'll be joining us, please let us know in the Comments; I'd like to give 360 a headcount next week so we can attempt to wrangle sufficient seating.
