Hey you guys, wow I haven't been on the board in a minute. Finals and graduation ,along with searching for a job after my internship ended has not left much time for purusing the internet unless its on monster.com and the like! :D Anyhoo, I know the ladies at the last Houston get together agreed that we would have the next meeting on the North side. Sooo I was thinking, there is a new Boudreaux's opening up on the northside, on Airtex, which is close to the 1960 area. It is opening in May, not sure of what date in May exactly but just wanted to know if that would be alright with you guys? Let me know what ya think!

By the way if anyone knows how to post a picture in a message, please give me step by step instructions so that I can post pics. Thanks

Hey Satriela!
Boudreaux's is a cajun resturaunt. They have catfish, shrimp, alligator, crawfish, clams, dirty rice, shrimp etoufee, crawfish etoufee, and the likes. The food is good.
I will let you all know when the grand opening is soon.

Sounds cool to me. I don't work too far from Airtex. Are the opening a Boudreaux's by 45?? Over there were Zio's and all those other eating spots are??

May sounds good. Congrats on your graduation Natitwists!! :D :D :D
I hope you land the job you want.

Yea Brat right over there by Joe's Crab Shack and Lupe Tortilla and Saltgrass, they are building a whole complex, there is gonna be a Slick Willey's, Marble Slab, Texadelphia, Boudreaux's, WIngs and Things, but I saw that Boudreaux's was opening this May so I thought that would be a good place. Hope you can make it this time. :lol:
After finals (tomorrow) and graduation next week I will write back with more details ladies!

what about saturday the 24th?

natitwists
05-10-2003, 09:51 PM
THe 24th sounds good to me Satriela! Now if the Boudreaux's is not open, we can select from the following places which are in the same area: Saltgrass, Lupe Tortilla, Zio's, Joe's Crab Shack, Whataburger (smile) or Jack in the Box (smile). That's just in case it isn't open yet. Like I said I went to another Boudreaux's location and it said that the Airtex location was opening in May, so..... let's hope they are open by then, if not, then yall let me know, in order of preference, which place y'all would like to meet at.
Until next time Peace!! :afro:

Sorry happylocks that you can't attend. I know how you feel, I graduate on the 17th and finals, graduation, all of that drama, I empathize with you. Well ladies, I suppose we have settled on the 24th? I say 2pm. Let's have a vote on the time. What would be best for you guys. Also vote on the place if Boudreaux's isn't open yet. 1.Salt Grass 2)Zio's 3)Joe's Crab shack 4)Jack and the Box 5) Whataburger 6)Country Market 7)Cracker Barrel
All of these places are within the vicinity of Airtex.
So I need a vote from you ladies and a final count to see who will be attending. I will be checking the board more regularly now, since graduatio is tomorrow and all this craziness will soon be over.
Later ;)

Aiight...the 24th sounds cool with me. I guess the South Side is gonna have to make that trip to the North this go round. I'll be there.

I'm going to put in a vote for Zio's...cause I love italian and they have good prices. But wherever the group wants to eat will be fine.

So we got one vote for Zio's so far. Time? I say 2:30 but I need to hear from you guys so that we can make it official, so far we have 5 definites? systah, nx2brat,bajantexan,reikosuave and me natitwists. Let me hear from the rest of y'all so far it's looking like we will meet at Zio's on the 24th @ 2:30pm. Let a sistah know what will work. Once everything is finalized we need to arrange who will bring a camera so that our picture can go up on the web, we took pictures the first time we met but never posted them, I still have some and nobody remembered to bring a camera the 2nd time, so hopefully this time we can take some pictures and have them posted quickly. ;)

05-19-2003, 01:43 PM
Boudreauxs would be my vote. If not there, Salt Grass would do. FYI, there's a great cheap place called Zio's in the same area. Anyhow....2ish is just fine. Is this official et? :D

Also remember ladies bring your favorite products to share and bring those that you no longer like or didn't live up to your expectations to swap! :afro:

I need directions!!!! Where is this place??!? How long should it take me to get there? I live in the Galleria area. Even just an address would be okay. :rainfro:

natitwists
05-20-2003, 05:17 PM
You take 45N to Richey road, make a U-turn under the freeway. Go along the feeder and Zio's will be on your right hand side. It is between Saltgrass and Joe's Crab Shack. If you are coming from the galleria area, then it should take approximately 30 minutes. See ya there! :D

LFJPO
05-21-2003, 12:46 AM
On the directions: is that 45 N or 45S? Richey Road I thought was by Hobby Airport near the Monroe Exit? Someone let me know because I was thinking I was going towards IAH and not Hobby.

That's S. Richey going toward Pasadena...

My Southside Peoplez...
The Richey exit for ZIO's is off 45 N..just keep going out 45 North past Greenspoint mall.. to the Richey exit.

Hello Houstonians!

I would like to join in on this day of fun if I can. I like on the SW side but a little drive never hurt anyone. I would like to know the physical address of wherever we chose. I personally would love Joe's Crab Shack....Cuz I love me some schrimp!! :blink: Yes, I did say schrimp. :nohuh: Any other information would be great, too. I am still transitioning so I do not really have any products to swap but just meeting other nappturals would be suffice for me. I hope you guys would allow this rookie to invade your 100% napptural beauty. Can't wait to see everyone.

I have always been natural....just away for a bit :D


Peace and Napptural hair grease :rainfro:

Just wanted to add, if any of you ladies have any homemade recipes or products you'd like to share please do so at the meeting on Saturday! I am going to get into making my own products since I have been freed up from school and would love to hear how you ladies make different products. So bring your hommade stuff with you too!! :thumbsup:

Natitiwists is right. It is 45N. Richey is not near Hobby Airport, its on the North Side of town.

Can't wait to meet all of you soon. I have about two bags of products and some hair (afro puffs and ponytail) to give away. I will also bring my digital camera.

Nx2brat
05-22-2003, 06:32 PM
There are two Richey's . One is on the southside by hobby the other is northside all the way out 45N..and that is the the one Natitwists is talking about.

I think I quoted the wrong message earlier...anywayz..here's link to directions
