IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Happy Anniversary!

7 years ago the first post was made here. 420,180 page views to date. 961 posts not counting this one have produced 6,308 comments. One stat I find interesting is how folks are looking. The most popular browser is Chrome 49% followed by Safari at 27%. Even more interesting is the OS. Windows is in the lead at 35% followed by iPhone at 22%. Imagine that.

Howdy All!

We received our first beer delivery today...Yaay!  

Phase 1 is coming along nicely so I'd like to confirm our Soft Open Date,  Friday, January 27th.  Okies YardHouse will also be open Saturday.

On Friday, we will open from 5:30pm to at least 10pm (Midnight if People are still here) & Saturday from Noon to at least 10pm....Please spread the word to everyone on Council, EDC, Okies Design Committee, City Staff and All Residents of Clear Lake Shores.  We want as many people as possible to come by, take a look and to help us work out the kinks (there's bound to be a few).

A few things...Okies YardHouse will be Open to the Public and Food Trucks will Be on Site Friday from 6p to 9p and Saturday from noon to 9pm selling food.  The Line Up for Friday is The Cuban Spot, Offbeat Eatz, CM Lobster and DLish Curbside.  Saturday's Line Up is El Topo, Offbeat Eatz and Cm Lobster.

Since we will be open to the public, Okies YardHouse must Charge for all orders Served at the Bar....HOWEVER, Del Papa one of our Beer Distributors, will be on site FRIDAY for a Complementary Tasting from 7pm to 7:45pm...Beer Poured and Served by Beer Reps FRIDAY from 7pm to 7:45pm will be complementary so please take advantage of this while they are here (I believe they have to limit complementary drinks to a Max of 2 per person and can only serve for a limited time frame due to TABC Regulations).

Beyond this weekend, Okies will limit operations to Friday night and All Day Saturday until we get the right staff in place to begin expanding into Sunday, then the remainder of the week.  We will keep everyone updated as this this expansion happens...By the way, if you know of any good Managers and Bartenders, please send them our way!

Thanks to everyone for their support and we're looking forward to showing off Phase 1 and getting everyone's feedback.

Warmest Regards,
