Top 10 Reasons To Be At the Draught House on Thursday

January 12th, 2015 | John Chandler

This Thursday is our Midweek Meetup at the Draught House (4112 Medical Parkway) at 8pm. Here’s 10 reasons you should come.

10. Heatlamps!

The majority of seating at the Draught House is outdoors, and the projected temperature is in the 50s that evening. However, most tables have cozy heating lamps. It’s probably warmer than your home.


9. Puppies!

There are always a few puppies at the Draught House. Many of them are pugs! Be ready to pet a pet!


8. Brussel Sprouts

If you think that Brussel Sprout are some sort of punishment from your childhood, you’ve obviously never had the Brussel Sprouts from East Side King. You’ll love them, and your mother will be proud.


7. Church in Public

Sunday Church is great, but Church is who we are all week long. It invades our normal interactions (like drinks with friends) and forces us to integrate faith into daily life. Being Church in public is also how we learn to communicate who Jesus is to the world. Let’s learn together.

6. To Listen to Great Stories

You don’t necessarily hear great stories sitting in rows on a Sunday. Relaxing over drinks, you may laugh, cry and grow closer to someone.

5. Mourn the Loss of Your Favorite Team

Halfway through the playoffs, and crowd favorites like the Cowboys and Broncos are out. Come and cry in your drink.


4. 40 Taps! (and Topo Chico!)

The Draught House is Austin’s old fashion English Pub. There are drinks for everyone.


3. Find out what God is up to in someone else’s life.

Often, we don’t have the time and space to ask deeper questions. At the Draught House, you’ll have time to ask questions like “what is God teaching you?” and “what are you going to do about it?”

2. Karaage

Karate is East Side King’s crowd favorite Asian fusion fried chicken. It could change your life.eastsidekings_torimeshi


1. Practice being a friend

As Thoreau said, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” One reason is that we don’t have people to share our lives with. Making friends is never easy, and it gets harder as you get older. Why not be brave, come to the Draught House and ask someone if you can be their friend?
