Typically we have two events per month, a Boys-R-Us dinner en-homme and our en-femme Chapter Meeting. Occasionally during the year special events are also scheduled like Elegant Ladies Night Out (an evening on the town where you can dress to the nines) and Guys 'n' Dolls (like Boys-R-Us, a birth gender dressed evening, but at a venue where better attire is expected). Throughout the year have a mixture of events that take place at member homes and selected business locations in the Houston area. Several of our dressing events are held after normal business hours or in private spaces, and none are open to the public.
Below is a brief description of our plans for the year.
- The first item is our Boys-R-Us dinner.
- The second is our Chapter Meeting.
Look at what you are missing out on by not being a member of Tau Chi!
Past 2019 Events
Back to our classic 'what new years resolution to lose weight?', we had nine members kick off the first Boys-R-Us of the year over an Italian feast.
We has ten members for our annual Pledge Ceremony this month. A great reminder that the three "S"es of Tri-Ess stand for Serenity, Support and Service... to ourselves and to our sisters.
We had nine members enjoying each others company and the cool Houston weather for our secone Boys-R-Us of the year paired with Italian food.
What else would we plan for this month but our annual Sweetheart Dinner and rose ceremony? No sweetheart? No problem, we had thirteen members (not all couples) enjoys a great evening of sisterhood.
Before we ran out of months with an 'r' in them, we had twelve members "catch" a great time at our Boys-R-Us as we visited one of the area's best Seafood establishments.
For the gal that doesn't get out much (or any of us really), we had ten members join us for our meeting this month to enjoy a private shopping experience with an entire store to ourselves for clothing, shoe and accessory shopping.
We had six members join us this month for our Boys-R-Us to welcome in Spring with some great Texas bar-b-que (or is that spelled bbq?).
Is the perfect accessory this season victim status? We had eleven members join us this month for a discussion on identity politics. A great time to ask if your 'rights' come from a bureaucrat in a government office.
We had nine members rustle up some grub as we chowed down at a local steakhouse for our Boys-R-Us this month.
Taking it easy as the year starts to heat up, we had seven members who decided to chill out as we did a movie night for this meeting.
It was time for our annual Luau Boys-R-Us where ten of our members met up for pot luck, Hawaiian style.
I have enough jewelry... said no woman ever. That's why we had eleven members making their own bling with our jewelry class for our meeting this month.
How could we get this far in the year without visiting one of our favorite Mexican restaurants?
Just because the temperature outside is heating up doesn't mean you have to look like a hot mess. Join us for our meeting this month featuring makeup and get a fresh new look.
Aloha from the big island of Houston! We had twelve members grab their Hawaiian shirts for Boys-R-Us this month at our annual potluck Luau.
A girl can never have enough sparkle, and to prove it, eleven of our members got their bling on this month with a jewelry making class.
We had ten members show up for some deli-cious food and companionship at our Boys-R-Us this month.
Bunco Night! We had nine members roll the dice for fun (and prizes) as we of course kept our ladylike composure.
Even though Oktoberfest starts in September, we had ten members celebrate with our Boys-R-Us with great company and great German food.
Our second annual Halloween costume contest didn't scare away seventeen of our members. How could it, with our winner, 'Wonder Woman' protecting us?
With no shortage of great Chinese food in Houston, we had eight members chow down with fun and friends at our Boys-R-Us this month.
The holiday tradition of our annual Thanksgiving dinner had twelve members risk gaining a dress size to enjoy the great support of the Tau Chi family.
As the year came to an end, twelve members gathered for our Boys-R-Us this month over warm English food on a cool December evening.
Our annual Christmas party is always one of the best meetings of the year. Fourteen members celebrated with food, gifts and great friends.
Past 2020-2022 Events
So what happened in early 2020 through mid-2022? Well, it wasn't our best time to get together except online. At least you could wear anything below the waist if you didn't stand up!
Conditions improved through summer 2022, so we decided to try a few meetings late in the year. These went well, including December Boys-R-Us and our Christmas party. Now we are going ahead with a full plan of
meetings for 2023. :-)
