The Return of SSSC: Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee Part 6

So last month, the calendar and my dark mood got the best of me and we didn't get together for activism talk and grousing and camaraderie -- with food and drink!) Let's fix that this month at the Long Room. [more inside]

Mike's March-End Art Part 1 - The Furies

Along with the meetups we've had that are fun and/or political, let's end March with a couple of free art events (that are also fun and/or political, I guess.) Join me for the premiere of The Furies, by King is a Fink Productions. The Furies is a series of five dance films that explore how social prohibitions against female anger limit self-actualization for women. [more inside]

Springtime drinks in Chicago

Hi y'all, I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown in the afternoon. I'm totally flexible on time and place as long it's 4 pm or later. I just picked the Long Room because we've been there before and they have food. Can't wait to see the Chicago Cabal again!

4th Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee Or 4thSSSCSSCC

(except that it's gonna be on the 3rd Saturday again maybe) Because of the holiday weekend and conflicting events, I'm suggesting we move this month's event to the Third Saturday. However, I'm open to other routes. NOTE: Please see the changed location and the fixed time; garlic has generously volunteered to host this month and I'm generously taking him up on that offer.

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.

Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee Or SSSCSSCC*

So there's no way I would have made it through the last few post-election days without the support of my friends and family, especially seeing so many reactions that amounted to"WHAT CAN I DO?" and last night I was struck by all the youth hitting the streets, but, even as I was there, I wondered "what can I, an older person out of the activist game, do?" Here's what I came up with: [more inside]

Third Coast Conference!

Any public radio or podcasting MeFites gonna be in Chicago for the Third Coast Conference from Nov 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place? I'll be in from L.A. representing KCRW. Would be fun to have a lunch / drink / meetup at some point over the weekend, if we aren't already going to be stacked with plans. I haven't even looked at the schedule yet, but just throwing it out there. Would be fun to raise a glass with my fellow producers! (I'm also planning a field trip to the best bookstore in the world.)

There is no Chicago Cabal of Charity

We've been there, done that with RMH meals. We might be there, do that again (say in November). But in 2017, lets try some new charitable things we can do as a group. But what should they be? [more inside]

Save the 11 Bus! Destroy your liver!

Remember the 11 bus? Were you mad they discontinued it? Well, it's back! Temporarily, anyway, and a number of bars along the route have teamed up for 11 on 11: a beer explorer trek to bump up ridership. Join us for a full day of stupidity as we try to hit all 11 in one day because we are idiots. [more inside]

Fake First Wednesday on a Fourth Wednesday GoatFrog

So I'm not working Christmas Eve Day and we're not going anywhere for the holiday and we didn't get an official trip to the Blue Frog earlier this month, so now this is happening. [more inside]

Quite possibly the end of an era

The Blue Frog is shutting down in January and there's a pretty good chance the owners will have alienated the staff so much that everyone will throw in the towel before then, so this might be the last First Wednesday. If you've ever been, you'll want to join us this time. If you've never been, you must join us this time. [more inside]

Awesome Folky Cool Times with Laura Marling in Chicago?

I'm just wondering if any other Mefites are going to or are interested in catching Laura Marling at Martyrs on Sunday the 22nd. I have yet to meet any of you cool Chicago people and I figured this might be a good opportunity to do that. Tickets here if you're interested. I've not seen her live yet, but she's really fantastic. Just checked to make sure there's still some on sale and as of now there are.
