taoG ylliB|Billy Goat

On behalf of the Chicago Chapter of the Cabal*, I repudiate the current rumor that there is "a rampant pro-billy goat prejudice" on Metafilter. Mr. quidnunc's allegations are scurrilous, pernicious, libelous, and, what's more, categorically untrue, and I reject them with the utmost strenulosity.

That bit of business concluded, I'm pleased to announce our seventieth or so monthly meetup, to be held on the first Wednesday of March at the famous Billy Goat Tavern! [more inside]

A Book Swap. For swapping books.

What say we have a bookswap-type meet-up? Bring a few good books you're willing to part with, and maybe take some new ones home. Like a clothing swap, but with fewer reasons to undress and, hopefully, no embarrassing stains to explain. [more inside]

August: Goat County

(Coming up on time, so I figured I go ahead and post this before people started getting anxious.) This is our monthly Chicago meetup as the Billy Goat for those who don't yet know that this is what this is. You should definitely come to this if you did not already know this. It is good. (You should also come if you have already attended and did know this, but I'm not as worried about making you feel comfortable.) [more inside]

MeFi hangout during ALA?

Hi all - the American Library Association conference is happening here in Chicago June 27-July 2. IANYL - hell, IANEven*A*L - but it sounds like the type of thing where significant MeFite repping is possible. Should we try for a meetup during the conference?

Goat Song

Goat Song : Chicago is the story of a year in the life of a group of mefites who abandoned their one-bedroom apartments in Chicago to live under Michigan Avenue raise Billy Goats. In poetic, reverent detail, EvilSpork talks of our ancient relationship to the land and our gradual alienation from the Billy Goats that feed us. His fascinating account traces his journey of the choosing of the billy goat, and learning how to breed, brew, and curse the cubs with them. [more inside]

Scav 2014?

The University of Chicago's annual scavenger hunt - alternately known as Scav - is an exciting festival of high-weirdness. I really enjoyed this year's incarnation, and would like to field a MeFi team for next year's if that's feasible. EDIT: I probably can't do this anymore since it's the same time as Eurovision. Alas!

Gays of Chicago (and friends)...

So, my mom's dealing with her second round of cancer, and I'm flying back from L.A. to Chicago for a week to deal with all that. I'm going to need a good night of hedonism to take the edge off. It looks like Chances is the place to be, so I'm planning to show up sometime between 10 and 10:30 on Saturday the 4th to werk it out. (Note: I'll have my brother and my family to help process the heavy stuff, so this night is all about fun and camaraderie and celebrating life. Don't be afraid!)
