As I mentioned earlier, there was a gathering of members of the H-Town Blogs yesterday, and it was a blast! The weather was perfect (finally!) and downtown was deserted as always. Houston is just the strangest city – no one to be found for the most part in downtown on the weekend, unless there is a baseball game. I took pictures to prove this fact, and I’ll post them tonight.
Kaveh Kanes was a great spot to have this – there is a large “U” shaped couch, so we could sit and talk with each other easily. Eventually there were so many people there we had to add more chairs, but in a circle like that the conversations were flowing. Pictures were snapping. It was fun. After awhile we decided some food was in order, so we headed to the Topas bar next door to eat. That’s TOPAS not to be confused with TOPLESS, ok? There seemed to be an issue with that every time it was said. Say them out loud. You’ll understand.
In attendance (I hope I get all of them!) were: Mike (who I couldn’t wait to meet because I had heard such great things about him from D, all of which are true), Elaine, Hanna, Rob, Robert, Charles, Erica, Cody (with the adorable and wonderful baby Petunia), Clayton (who looks just like the photo on his site), Greg (Clayton’s guest in town from Indiana. I hope we didn’t spoil his impression of Houston…), and Kathy.
Good company, and more blogs to read. Because they just get better when you’ve met the authors in person!
