Its been a while since I last posted and needless to say, Cool Bus Houston, has been quite busy since then! In the 10 weekends since our last post, we have been booked for parties in 9 out of those 10 weekends!
We have hosted parties that range from graduations, birthdays, fundraising events, bachelorette parties, weddings, high school prom and even spent a night with a film crew as they shot footage of a night out on Cool Bus Houston for an upcoming online TV special! We even had our first repeat customer during this time!
The experiences that we have been able to provide have been nothing less than memorable. To be able to say that we were a part of each of our guest’s special celebration (whatever it may be) is exactly what Cool Bus Houston is all about.
Here are a few highlights of the parties/events we have hosted over the past 2 months…
On Saturday, March 25th, we were a part of “Hoffathon – A fundraiser benefiting the family of Brian Hoffman” that took place in Humble, TX. Brian was a close family friend that recently passed away and we wanted to help out any way we could to help raise money. We brought the bus out to the event and had it set up for guests to come on board and check out. I think the kids enjoyed it more than the parents did! We also donated a 5-hour ride that was auctioned off to help raise money, in addition to the numerous silent & live auction items they had donated. In the end, our donation helped raise $2,200 toward their end goal of over $26,000 for Brian’s family.
Saturday, April 8th, was Clint’s Graduation Party! We helped organize an itinerary for their night out as they were just looking to bar-hop around Houston and needed some help in their planning. After we picked the group up in Cypress, our stops included McIntyre’s (Heights), Kung Fu Saloon (Washington Ave), Live! Sports Bar (Downtown) and finished the night off for 80’s Night at Barbarella Houston – a popular dance club in Midtown.
Fast forward to the following Thursday, April 13th, where we hosted Diana Durlam and her group as we celebrated her husband, Hugh, and his 40th birthday! We picked the group up in Katy and took them to eat down in Sugarland. The group met up with about 20 of their other friends for dinner at Bacon Brothers Public House. They followed up their birthday meal with some birthday karaoke at Jack’s for Cocktails located at Wilcrest and Hwy 59.
On Friday, April 28th, a group of 8th graders from Creekside Intermediate boarded Cool Bus Houston to celebrate their 8th grade dance! Following their pictures at Helen’s Gardens in League City, we picked the group up and took them to their celebration at Top Golf. After Top Golf, we drove around League City for approx. 30 min before heading home.
The following day, we had the great honor of being a part of Elisabeth & Ryan’s Wedding! We picked up the bride’s extended family from Cypress and dropped them off at the wedding ceremony that was taking place at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. After the ceremony, we provided transportation to their reception located at the Houston Zoo. Once the reception ended, we took the family back to their house in Cypress. I remember that the forecast showed a big storm that would roll in to town around the time I was taking everyone home, but luckily it wasn’t as bad as predicted and didn’t cause any issues with our transportation.
Ivonne’s Bachelorette Party was held on Cool Bus Houston on Saturday, May 6th. We picked everyone up from their house in League City brought them to Uptown Park where they initially planned to go to Belvedere, but the bar wasn’t open till a little later in the night. So we called and audible, and we dropped them off just a couple hundred yards away at The Tasting Room. We followed this up with the main event of the night as the girls had reservations at the only male strip club in Houston, La Bare.
Saturday, April 13th was the Cypress Creek High School Prom at the Berry Center. We picked the group up after dinner at Campioni Restaurant in the Champions area and then drove them to the dance at the Berry Center in Cypress. After the dance, we were take them up to Hearne, TX where they were to continue their celebration at a family ranch. Unfortunately, we got a flat tire in Bryan, TX and wound up ending our trip early. This event is actually its own separate blog post itself. So stay tuned…
And finally this past weekend, we helped celebrate the graduating Class of 2017 from Memorial High School! We picked up the group senior girls and their mom’s from graduation at the Don Coleman Community Coliseum. Since this was a short reservation, we only had enough time to drive them to The Heights and take pictures in front of the “Greetings from Houston” wall mural on White Oak Dr and then started dropping everyone off for their evening plans.
These are just a few of the parties & events that we participated in over the past 2 months and the summer is set to be just as busy as we already have 4 parties on the schedule for the summer months, including providing transportation for a fishing tournament down in Seadrift, TX!
