    I'm probably going to end up at Lavaca street just because I've heard there reserving the back room for the Rockets games and all my friends are comfortable with it from the Texans season.

    I like the idea of Crown & Anchor and Dirty Martin's though, definitely two of my favorite places to grab some beer and a burger.

    they do, depending on the game. Just ask the waitress.

    Much better food and staff at the saucer.

    I'll be at Doc's on Soco. That is the place to be. Went there every Sunday for football and the atmosphere is awesome.

    I live in WC. I'm down for whatever bar. It'd be nice to meet some other Rockets fans in Austin.

    I visit Lavaca St every once in a while with my buddies.

    I'll be there. Are you going to reserve a space for the Clutchfans?

    I'll definitely be at Lavaca Street Bar for the Rockets playoff games. Anyone watching the game tonight at a venue?

    Lavaca Street can be a bear to get to, but I will say this: the addition of Turf N Surf as the in-house kitchen has made it awesome. I hit that place up for work lunch all of the time.

    The Tavern has a couple of advantages: tons of televisions and an easy-to-access location. The service there is always terrible, though, and the environment can be sterile. Although, the environment could follow us.

    Crown and Anchor doesn't seem like good idea when school's in session for us non-students, plus they have small televisions.

    Black Sheep Lodge is a fun place, but can get very crowded. Good food and lots of televisions (and south, if that matters to ya).
