Let’s Go ‘Stros!

There’s nothing quite like October baseball, and if you are a Houston Astros fan, you are probably pretty happy right now! The Astros swept the Cleveland Indians this week in the ALDS, advancing them to the ALCS.

Catch the ‘Stros taking on the Boston Red Sox in the primetime slot at 7:09pm, Saturday, October 13th. Wear your Orange and Blue loud and proud this weekend and gather your friends and family to cheer them on all the way to the 2018 World Series! Visit https://www.mlb.com/ to catch up on all the latest baseball news, and check out a few pics of our staff from the Astros 2017 championship run below!

Back to School 2018

In what has become an Alpha Testing tradition, here are some of the youngest (and not quite as young) members of the Alpha family on their first day of school. There are some on their first day of school ever, and others who are celebrating their last first day of school. Thanks for sending in all the great photos!

Bump, Set, Spike!

Our Houston team checked out Wakefield Crowbar a few weeks ago for some fun in the sand! Located between the Garden Oaks and Oak Forest neighborhoods of Houston, this dog friendly eatery has full-sized volleyball courts as well as a large patio for those of us who lean more towards “spectator” than “setter.” To make your court reservation or sign up for one of their volleyball leagues, check out http://www.wakefieldcrowbar.com/!

Beat the Houston Heat!

Yes, the inevitable triple digit temperatures are finally upon us here in Texas, but that does not mean you cannot still have a cool time around H-town! There are plenty of things to do to “beat the Houston heat” that do not include burning a hole in your wallet.

This summer, several popular Houston museums are offering free admission every Thursday afternoon including: Museum of Natural Science, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Children’s Museum of Houston, The Health Museum, Houston Museum of African American Culture, and the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum.

Busy Thursdays? No worries. There are also plenty of museums that are free every day of the year including: Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, DiverseWorks, Houston Center for Photography, The Menil Collection, Moody Center for the Arts, and the Rothko Chapel to name a few.

So if you want to mix it up a little bit without breaking a sweat or the bank, stop by one of these fine Houston attractions with some friends, family, or just the kiddos. School may have stopped, but the learning never has to! Check out http://houmuse.org/free-admission-times/ for details.

Cats, Coffee, Cartoons, OH MY!

New to Downtown Houston, El Gato Coffeehouse is Houston’s first “cat café”. Partnered with local no-kill animal shelter, Friends for Life, El Gato provides a comfortable, social environment for adoptable cats while also providing food and beverage options to those who visit this unique Houston hangout.

Not only can you eat local, tasty treats and play with the furry felines, but you can also watch “Caturday” morning cartoons, relax with yoga and cats, catch a Friday “Meowvie” night, and have a crafternoon making art and cat toys. If you are not a cat person, there is plenty of outdoor seating on their large patio where you can still enjoy your freshly made coffee and plentiful food options from local food trucks on property.

Whether you are looking to adopt your next furrever friend or just grab a cup of joe, you are helping to support a great cause all while having a good time doing something different. For more information on El Gato, upcoming events, and adoption options, visit their website at elgatocoffeehouse.com.

We Are Alpha.

Family milestones matter.

Marriage.  Birth.  Baptism. Graduation. Anniversaries. Leaving home. Reunions – just to name a few.

At work, we continue our internal celebration of our 35th anniversary this year.  In looking back, there are so many events, clients, and projects that could each be lifted up as key points in our history.

We decided to call out the Alpha Testing milestones that have resulted in new offices and a new sense of ‘family,’ as we have grown beyond the original office.  Today, we have Alpha ‘family units’ in Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, and multiple locations in Dallas.

The professional growth steps involved have paralleled many of the life milestones we all share.

Brian, Ken, Tony and I encourage and celebrate that ‘tribal’ sense of belonging that comes from being a part of an Alpha Testing regional operation.   Look around, and you can proudly say “WE are Alpha today.” Celebrate the success and the unique aspects of your region!

We hope you join us in celebrating the other Alpha teams in Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Dallas, Balch Springs, and Farmers Branch.  We – all of us – are Alpha Today.

It is an honor to work alongside each of you, in every location, as we all continue to reach toward our Vision 2020 goals!
