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]

Jessamyn is coming! Let's dance!

It's SummerDance season! Maybe we'll dance, maybe we'll just sit and watch. Maybe we'll dance, then sit, then watch, then dance again! Who's to say? But join us Sunday for a twirl about the park for Chicago's SummerDance... and don't forget your comfy shoes!

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.

We haven't had an auxiliary Pequod's meetup in *ages*

Socialism Conference - Chicago July 2-5

I'm thinking about making the drive from Columbus, OH to this event in July. I've never been to one of these events before so I have no idea as to its quality - any feedback is welcome.
