WSM's 4th QUARTERLY ST. ARNOLDS BREWERY TOUR AND MORE! SAT NOV 8TH!! - HOUSTON

Westside Mustangs (Houston) puts this event on Quarterly and it is a really good time.

THIS IS ALWAYS A GREAT EVENT AND THE WEATHER THIS GO ROUND SHOULD BE PERFECT!
If there's enough people interested, we can do regional meet-ups again, and if there's not that many, we need to just meet up at St. Arnolds no later than 11:45 am. Bring food is you'd like, and St. Arnolds Accessories and get ready for a hell of a time.

Admission is $5 and it includes a souvienier glass and a few tokens for free samples. (You usually end up with more when people start clearing out).

Afterwards we go to Corvettes & Classics to gawk for a little while, then over to BJs Brewhouse on 1960 for a few more and dinner... Afterwards we will all cruise out to the Nifty Fifties Car meet at Spring Cypress and Champions Forest Dr.

Come one come all, let's make this fun!!!

Isn't that the same date as our MSR event, where we have a car show and free parade laps around the track? What could be more fun than driving your pony car at full speed? :doubt:

Just putting it out there for those that can't make your event.

FWIW, I went to the last one at MSR and it did absolutely rock.
I didn't have either car ready to do the HPDE, but I hope to for your next one.

I'll be taking the 67 to the Team Shelby/Mid-America Ford Meet again next June in Tuslsa and would like to get in at least one HPDE before putting her on the track at Hallett again. Does anybody here know if yall will have another MSR event before then, say in the spring sometime?

Nope, not until next November unless we do a one dayer at TWS but I haven't heard any positive response about that one from anyone.

I just checked the Weather Channel and it's supposed to be beautiful sunny Saturday, high of 78 degrees. :bounce:
So give a shout out if you think you're going to make it on out.

This is going to be the best cruise to date!
The weather is freekin gorgeous and I'm advised that there will be a really big turnout at the Niftee!
So shine up your Mustang, Merkur, mnivan, or whatever.....and get ready for a great time.

If you want to get in the most miles, you can start out in Katy with me.
We'll depart Texas Borders a little after 11.
Otherwise you can meet up with us at St. Arnolds, or anywhere else along the way.
Here's a rough schedule:
11:11 - Depart Borders
11:45 - Arrive at St. Arnolds
12:00 - Doors open at the brewery
3:30 - Depart for Corvettes and Classics
4:00 - Arrive Corvettes and Classics
5:00 - Depart for BJs
5:30 - Arrive at BJs
5:45 - Reservations at BJs
7:00 - Depart for Niftee 50's
7:30 - Arrive at Niftee 50's
Okay at this point we drool over all the fine iron and people kind of go at their own pace and we don't try and hold the group really together.
This is the official end of the line but unofficially, if anybody's interested, I'll be heading over to hear a band called Underconstruction at the Parrot PUb, which is very near there. Please come along if you'd like to hear a good rock cover-band.
The address is:
Parrot Pub
5010 Louetta Rd # A
Spring, TX 77379
It's near Louetta and Kuyhendahl.

Please note that the above times are very approximate so if you're going to join us somewhere along the route, feel free to call me to find out where we are at any given time.

A word regarding food at St. Arnolds.......
They don't sell food, and since it's around lunchtime, people generally either eat ahead of time, bring food and tailgate in the parking lot, or they bring food into the brewery to have with their beverages.
The latter is cool, but the seating inside is limited, so if you're needing to spread out with your munchies, it is important you get in with the first wave of folks and get a table.

Well I look forward to seeing the hard-core regulars again, as well as some new faces.
Let's make this a fun and safe event!
