The Ocassional Third Saturday Return of SSSCSSCC: Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee
Calendars are hard. Depression and holidays combining make them harder. But we're getting together this Saturday at the Long Room to decompress, cheer, drink, eat, be merry and/or pissed off. Come with ideas for a SUMMER PROJECT for us to tackle together! (Or share them here if you can't here.)
We're re-establishing the habit of meeting on the second Saturday to check-in. Cheer each other for fighting the good fight. Share what we've done since the last time and what's on the calendars for June. Offer tools and tips for resisting effectively. Provide emotional support when the persistence is flagging. And drink booze. And eat biscuits. [more inside]
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]
We meet, we talk about and organize the resistance, we share some foods. [more inside]
(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.
The Women's March on Chicago begins with speakers and a rally at 10:00 AM at the Corner of Jackson and Columbus (Not quite the Drive). Please check in here if you're going, want to join at th meeting spot (SE corner of Jackson and Wabash around 9:30), or are interested in lunch/beers/bonding afterward (post-rally at Bar Below 127 S. State around 2:30). [more inside]
House MCNamara is still out of commission--we'll be meeting at the crush family compound. Contact me (email in profile or via MeMail) or MCMikeNamara for actual address. [more inside]
