Houston Slap & Tickle Part Eleventeen

Pages

It's that time again. Fed and I were talking at lunch and we both feel it's high time for another Houston Slap and Tickle. I can't remember how many we've had in the past, so I made up my own special number for this one. We were thinking about doing something gaming related on Saturday April 19th. Maybe a LAN center meeting?

Of course, we could always do the sports bar/lunch/chat it up sort of thing too.

So, where's my H-town homies at?

Wow, dropped to page two with no responses from our fellow Houston Goodjers.

I guess Fed and I can go hang out or something. I know Cope is usually up for the S&T.

Ohh! I want to have a LAN (PC FTW!) Or I can do the sports bar kicker to. What day are you guys thinking about having this get together?

Saturday April 19th.

So that is what reading is for haha! Ok whats the plan Stan? Been looking for a LAN Center in Houston but I do not see anything when I search the web.

The only one I ever saw was out on 1093 near West Oaks Mall (and that's sort of a haul for everyone). I'm not even sure it's still open.

Well i do know of one in Katy, but like hell I'm driving out there on a weekend. Maybe we should do the responsible thing and drink. But I plan on hosting my own LAN parties once I get my house in fall/winter of this year.

tf2 and sins all night long

I got friends from out in Caty, played LB there.
So, how close are you to the woodlands?
I may be making a trip down there to visit friends, and a meetup might be required.

Nutz, I can't make this. The last one was a lot of fun, I highly recommend going if you can.

The Woodlands are about 20-30 minutes North of Houston (depends on traffic, can be much worse).

Well, if I do end up visiting friends, I tell you, but its a slim chance.

Sadly that weekend I'm not able to attend. Next time Try and give us more notice =)

The date can be moved. I'm out of town during the week for business, so Saturday the 19th might not be the best idea for me either (wife might want to spend some time with me, the kid definitely will). We want to push it back to the 26th?

Hmm we need to find a LAN center then get enough people to take it over for the day that would be funny

Here's the one link I could find that's still valid after running down a bunch on Google.

There's a ton of dead links to LAN centers out there, travel with care.

The only thing that makes me sad is no team fortress I do not see why this Lan Center doesn't step up for the steam catalog But man do those PC Specs make me want to cry, but hell lets do it!

I felt the same way. Especially since I just bought a new comp (the parts are sitting right next to me begging to be assembled), my existing comp and the one I had before that are better than some of the machines they have there.

you know one of these days if I get an extra 50k or so I will open a LAN Center done right. The secret to the computers are leasing, Lease a computer for two years then get new ones.

Well if the computers suck we can also Rock Band it out or play COD console style, we should have a good time whenever and where ever we shall go.

I'm going to call it and move this out a week. I'm not going to have a lot of time next week for any organization or leg work to make this happen Saturday.

New date is April 26th.

Man, I really wanted to come to this one, but I'm having new carpet installed in the house 'some time between 1 and 5' on the 26th. I love installers.

As for LAN centers, I know there's one in The Woodlands called Combat Zone and there's one in Kingwood whose name escapes me at the moment. I'm a north-sider so don't know much about the rest of town despite living here nearly my whole life.

I'll keep an eye on this though and if they finishe early I'll make the wife let me go play.

I found one in Katy with System Specs that are not all that bad and they have a bunch of games

The Core

I see the one in Kingwood as well but not to sure if this is too much of a drive for some. But the kingwood one doesn't look like it has many good games.

We can probably keep fishing for days until we find one suitable for more than just me, Hemi, and Pharacon.

Where are the other Houston GWJers at? Bump for great justice!

Well, it looks like no matter what time the installers show up, I can't come play. The wife has designated April 26th as Rock Band Night and organized a party at her brother's house in Willis, even further north than we live. Guess I'll see you guys at Houston S&T Twelveteen.

Lets crash Bighoppa's party! woohoo! Maybe even longer delay say first weekend of May? Jeesh I can't believe we can not get a nice group together to go trash talk while supplying beatdowns.

Hey, I'm pretty sure I can go to Houston on the 26th and going to a LAN or drinking somewhere sounds great to me!

Killtrash should just move to Houston! It is better than that crazy Florida state

I actually was seriously thinking about that. I love Houston and that would cut a lot of time that it takes me to fly there once or twice a month. And rent is cheaper there too!

I'm back in H-town early. Where are our other Houston Goodjers?

Jeez, somehow this thread has eluded me until now. I know I have dissapointed you all. I am not worthy.

This Saturday the 19th is bad.

Next Saturday the 26th is almost as bad as I am occupied mid-afternoon on. A lunch meeting would work but if y'all want to do a LAN center I may be out. Besides, I'm too damn old to be mixing it up with a bunch of high-school kids.

I'll do a better job of watching this to see what develops.

What the heck Coping?! How old are you? I think we are all old dudes!
