Houston”s Astrodome was heralded as the first multi-purpose, domed sports stadium in the world when it opened in 1965. For the longest time, the stadium was the home to the town”s beloved Houston Astros and Houston Oilers (now in Tennessee under the Titans banner). Yet when the Astros moved to the flashier NRG Stadium next door in 2002, the once-proud structure became a fossil of its former self. Only cobwebs and the scuff from cleats on the locker room floor remained as fans and players alike flocked to the Astros” new home.

In 2012, three friends drunkenly stumbled into the abandoned dome. What they captured gave outsiders a close look at baseball history and what became of the stadium”s former glory. They also seemed to have quite a bit of fun in the process.

Go Astros!

Get used to the beer. There”s hardly a picture in this series without one of them holding a beer.

Drunk off nostalgia and beer, the friends made the sensible decision to climb up to the stadium roof.

In 2014, the County Commissioners Court of Houston announced a plan for the stadium to be turned into an indoor community park. The park would also serve as a convention center for festivals and events. With these plans given the go-ahead, it”s likely that this won”t be the last time these bros drink a brewski under the roof of the Astrodome. Party on, dudes!
