San Marcos river Clean up March 2nd

    Thank you for all who signed up and received a slot for the cleanup. The slots are full if you are like me and didn't get a slot, no worries they are having a separate sign in for divers as per Amy Kerwin.

    Are we meeting up somewhere Friday night?

    Surely so. Any place will do. The question is the time. Our "plan" is to escape by 4pm and be there around 7pm. Be advised our "leave early" plans fail more often than they succeed. But we should be there by 9pm if not. I haven't seen anyone else post hotel bookings but surely people aren't getting up at o'dark-thirty and driving up that morning!!!

    I'll be at the Econo Lodge Friday. I can text you and Todd when I get in.

    Realistically, I'm looking more at getting in around 9ish. Although I may come in early so I can skip earlier than usual. I usually work until around 6, but that would have me getting into San Marcos really late. I text you guys and let you know.

    RE: where to go Friday night .. I did some browsing on Yelp and came up with a few suggestions.
    • Ivar's River Pub - I actually used to go here all the time when I lived in San Marcos, but it's changed owners since then. It's a really beautiful spot right on the river. From the reviews, it sounds like most people like the food. But they are only open until 11pm, so if we want to hang out later than that, this may not be the place.
    • The Growling - This sounds like it's a great beer bar with lots of local beers on tap. However, it looks like they only serve beer. No mention of food. VERY dog-friendly ... apparently, dogs can come inside the bar (like Underdogs on Washington). Open until midnight.
    • Zelick's Ice House - Full bar, located in an old gas station from the 1930s. Has an outdoor patio with games like cornhole and horseshoes. Also dog-friendly, but sounds like it's just the patio. Open until 2am.
    • Gray Horse Saloon - Big dive bar, not in the square (so not full of college kids). Sounds like the drinks are good and really cheap. No kitchen, but you can get food delivered. Pool tables, darts, the usual stuff. Smoking allowed inside. Open until 2am.
    • Riley's Tavern - Another dive bar. Apparently, it's the oldest bar in Texas. Looks like it's a good old fashioned honky tonk bar, complete with live music and a dance floor. Everyone on Yelp claims this place is a "must". Large outdoor patio. Dog-friendly. Open until 2am.

    It doesn't matter to me where we go, but any of these places sound like they would be fun!

    It was a good excuse to slack off at work for a little bit! :D

    I am bringing my dog, so I would prefer a place that is dog-friendly. But that's not an absolute must. If we end up going somewhere that isn't dog-friendly, I can always just leave her at the hotel.

    If I have a slot, you can have it. I woke up this morning with a bad sore throat and it only got worse through the day. I’m going to have to pass this time. I’m so bummed I won’t be able to help out and meet y’all!! I hope to meet everyone coming to the Comal dive next month. (My full name is Kelly Gatewood if you need it to take my spot)

    We were there drinking beer at Railyard at 9:30pm. Slept, dived, returned to Railyard for more beer. A more detailed reported will follow in a day or two.
