Chicago TGIF Happy/Sad/Terrified Hour

I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown on Friday, January 20 for some appointments. I'll be done with what I need to do by 2 pm at the absolute latest. Does anyone want to meet up anytime after that (I assume most of you work)? It's inauguration day (*shudders*) so we all may need a beer to cry into. If you don't want to cry, you can help me celebrate some (obviously unrelated) good news.

Ignore Super Bowl?

We're coming up on that national tradition known as Super Bowl Sunday. In the past we've gotten together to play games rather than watch the game, but there was always something missing which prevented us from achieving the full on ignore experience: the actual football game in the background being completely ignored.

How Many Single Mefis in Greater NYC Would Like to Meet Other Single Mefis?

I can't believe I'm doing this, but the hell with it! It's a new year! So why not boldly go where no Mefi has gone before!? I wrote this recent Metatalk question — and have likely been giving nightmares to Cortex ever since. But before the thread devolved entirely into jokes, a few commentators suggested organizing an IRL Mefi Single People Meetup. After all, we're in New York, aren't there a bunch of us here? My gut instinct was to dismiss the idea entirely, which is why I wrote: "For those (coupled?) extroverts suggesting interested parties just host a singles Mefi meet-up, let me just say this: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. That's a good one!" But then.... [more inside]
