Being Thankful and Giving Back!

Sunday Funday

Thanksgiving is the time of year to give thanks but it doesn’t mean we can have fun!  We had a grand event at our clubhouse that saw over 30 singles stop by for good food, football and new friends.  Our turkey wrapped in bacon came out perfectly and we fryed up everything we could find in the deep fryer including Armadillo Eggs (stuffed jalapeño’s wrapped in sausage & ritz crumbs).  The football was good and we ended up with more food than we knew what to do with!  It was a fun day to celebrate after Sunday’s volleyball tournament/canned food drive that raised over 80lbs of food & $200 for the Houston Food Bank.

Wallyball…What is it?

 Most people don’t have a clue but we sure do.  It’s a wacky game of volleyball played indoors in a racquetball court.  Every month we reserve a court just for our members to go in and whack away!  Wallyball is really unique because unlike volleyball, where height and jumping ability is superior, knowing how to hit off the walls in wallyball is just as important!  It takes some getting used to but when you figure it out it is a lot of fun…not to mention a really fun way to burn some calories before our Thanksgiving feast!

Amazing Seats for Houston Rockets!

You couldn’t have written a better script for our first Houston Rockets basketball experience of 2013!  First off; our lower level seats were amazing.  There’s nothing like being right down by the action for a sweet discounted price!  The Rockets showed off their talent as Dwight Howard had a big first half and Jeremy Lin finished the game strong with a game high 31 points!  It wasn’t easy though as The Rockets needed double overtime to defeat the Raptors.  Meeting new people, having fun & cheering on our hometown team is a winning combination!

Halloween Parties are so nice we did it Twice!

One of our favorite events is themed Pub Crawls so we decided to dress up on Friday for a little fun before our big Halloween Party.  About 40 of us hit Washington Avenue in full costume and we made a splash.  We started with a free beer party at Blue Moose and end up doing the Monster Mash at Taps.  Saturday night though was the main event!  90 of the single best people of Houston gathered at the E&A clubhouse for dancing, crystal ball reading, photobooth, food, drinks, blackjack & prizes.  We had a dance off for Backstreet Boys tickets & the 8 foot tall Sasquatch won the big costume contest taking home 2 tickets to see Zedd & a ticket to our annual NYE bash!

Games Night in Houston!

The beautiful fall weather in Houston has made Games Nights at the clubhouse so nice.  We can open the doors and windows and enjoy being outside for games like Giant Jenga, Bean Bag Toss, Guesstures & Flip Cup.  This past Saturday we welcomed over 30 new members to the club and played games like Cards Against Humanity, Taboo & Blackjack!  The potluck was delicious as well.  Big thanks to everyone who cooked delicious treats & brought food! A big happy birthday to Chris B!  Thanks for spending your big day partying with us!

Lights, Volleyball, Action Houston

Our favorite volleyball spot has added new nets & lights so we can enjoy outdoor volleyball action every Tuesday night for the rest of the year!  The heat has finally broken so even if you don’t love volleyball you will love relaxing on the patio with a cool drink and good friends.  Happy Hour is all day and you can watch your favorite channels on the new flat screen TV’s outside!

Labor Day Weekend Houston/Dallas

 One of my favorite times of year is the Labor Day long weekend.  The 4-day adventure always gives us a chance to meet and form friendships with our Houston folks as well as our Dallas club!  This year we enjoyed swimming, fishing, wineries, Dinosaur Valley SP and games all while spending 3 nights at Cleburne State Park.  The air conditioned facilities we reserved were perfect because the temperature outside was in the hundreds all weekend!  The spring-fed lake was really enjoyable and we were able to float and relax.  I can’t wait for our next long weekend adventure!
