Houston Chess Meetup

I have been wanting to make it to one of the Houston Chess Meetups for quite a while and was finally able to make it last night. The location was the West Gray Cafe at 415 West Gray, Houston, TX 77019.



From this Chess Meetup link you can find other Chess Meetups around the world.

My wife and I got there early so we could eat dinner first. The food and service was quite good. I'd go back just for the food, nevermind the chess.

Around seven the other chess players started showing up and the games began. We left early, as planned, but had a good time and met some new Houston chess players.

I like the idea of the Chess Meetups and this one is perfect. Except for the location. And the time. The location is not exactly close to home and 7pm is already close to my bedtime (yes, I know I am pathetic). So, I am toying with starting one on the west side of town (near say Hwy 6 and I-10) on Saturday mornings. If you'd be interested drop me a line or leave a comment.

That sounds like a great idea, except I won't be getting much chess in until after the new year.
 
Please do!
I live in Katy and I would love to come to one of the meetings. I am a newcomer :)
