ATTEND ALL THE MEETUPS
posted February 2, 2013 8:02 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat February 23 at 5:00 PM, Pequod's Pizza
2207 North Clybourn Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
A couple people mentioned at BadHappy tonight wanting to come to the monthly Goat meetup, but not being able to make it because it's on a Wednesday (or during the week in general).
One suggestion was that there be a set antipode day for this proposed weekend meeup, but that it roatate through different places each month. Several people thought the idea sounded good, so what do you think?

Also if we did this regularly we could catch up or pass Portland and NYC on the front page. Just food for thought.

[edit]
Changing this to a confirmed date of Saturday the 23rd with Pequod's, unless people prefer the 16th or a different place.

This would also be a good place to post suggestions of where to go this time or next time.

I'm up for it. Though making it to the middle of the Indian Ocean may be a challenge.

I heard something about Cheesies, in March? Which is stumbling distance to my house.

Cheesies, that is. March is way far from abode of crush n guy.

I think this is a fantastic idea, and would attend regularly.

Looks like we're tentatively doing cheesies in March, or getting all wild and crazy and having 4 meetups in February.

That could be March's antipode meetup, maybe.

I endorse this trend of cheese-centric Saturday meetups.

There was also a meetup at a poutine place somewhere around California and Fulletron a couple months ago, maybe have that for April?

Because noone posted this in an IRL thread like they should have, in case you missed it, the chicago cabal* is famous.

I am so glad that Pequod's has become the other other regular place.

I would be, too, if I ever managed to make it to a Pequod's meet up. Oh the anchovies!

That's why they're on weekends now!

Pizza?
posted by BevosAngryGhost at 7:09 AM on February 21, 2013


In like 2 days!

but I can't make it.
posted by garlic at 4:42 PM on February 21, 2013


Isn't 5:00 a little early for dinner?

Or is it, like, a really late lunch?
posted by adamdschneider at 7:10 AM on February 22, 2013


I'm hoping to make it.

Good thing someone commented to pop this back to the top of my activity page, I'd have completely forgotten otherwise.

Let's call it linner. Or dunch.

This is a great idea. I was beginning to think all Chicago-mefites were these hard-partying Constitution Of Steel-types who never worked or slept.
I would also be in favor of meet-ups around various fun activities that are supposedly taking place. I get jealous of other cities that do that. I would suggest some but I don't know of any.

What has happened to disabuse you of this notion?

Never met Eamon or Chris, clearly.

I'm going to make it to one of these soon. Last Chicago mefi meeting I attended was in 2005!

Blech, I was hoping to be over this cough by now, but I am still hacking pretty good. I do not think pizza is in my future tonight...
posted by adamdschneider at 1:19 PM on February 23, 2013


Just two confirmed left. Unless some of the maybes want to step up and commit maybe we should cancel it?
posted by srboisvert at 2:02 PM on February 23, 2013


Well, I am suiting up for the E.V.A. and heading out. I'll see who comes in about 45
posted by srboisvert at 2:18 PM on February 23, 2013


I will be there also, then.
posted by Evilspork at 2:25 PM on February 23, 2013


Anybody here yet? I m at the fromt door.

I just walked upstairs, I'll look again.
