Nope, You Did Not Miss It!

Apparently, I am not the only person to think "oh, shit! GoatFrog is tonight!" but it's not. It's next week. And anyway, there is no Frog anymore. . . . . Oh, I made myself sad. But don't you be sad! You can still join us for First Wednesday! [more inside]

Goat Goat Goat, 22 Goats, even, maybe

Next Wednesday is the first Wednesday meet-up at the Billy Goat, on Lower Michigan. Tiny beers, sharp dressing weirdos, and unlimited potential for bad decisions and adventure await you. Join us!

This Hurts to Say: Last Goat-Frog is Upon Us

In the spirit of today's seriously crappy weather, I thought I'd take this moment to invite you to the very last possible Goat-Frog First Wednesday ever. The Goat endures, but the Frog closes mid-January. [more inside]

Calendars are Hard; Goating is Not.

I keep thinking the First Wednesday is this week. But because First Wednesday is instead next week, I am posting the regularly scheduled MefiChi meet-up. [more inside]

June, the Goatening

First Wednesday is next week. Join us at the Goat for food and tiny beers after work. Follow along when we decamp to the Frog (676 N LaSalle) for booze, awkward dancing and the finest karaoke you never sang. 2015 has been dialing the awesome way up and I hope you will help us keep the trend going. Seriously, folks, why are you not joining us?

Can I interest you in a Goat Frog?

I definitely need one. You probably do, too. By now, you know the drill and if you are not participating, you should be ashamed of yourself. Tiny beers and foodstuffs from the grill (free pickles!) at the Original Billy Goat Tavern, lower Michigan Avenue, starting at around 6:00pm. Then adjournment to the Frog for increasingly poor decisions and much awesome.

A-Goating We Shall Go

The merry month of May, so frolic, so gay, and so green, so goat, so goat! Join us for our month meet-up and drunkening. 6ish, 7ish at the Original Billy Goat in the dark underbelly of Michigan Avenue, until we get restless and move on to the Frog. Or join us Frogside, 10ish.

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]

January Goatening

Last night we discussed having the January Goat on the SECOND Wednesday, rather than the first, owing to that being New Year's Day, and owing to Berlin's Bowie Ball on the 2nd. What say you all? You all seem to say the First Wednesday is the First Wednesday and None Shall Encumber its Celebration. So be it. [more inside]

It's October Already

Well, it will be October already by next Wednesday. You know the drill: The Original Goat, under Michigan Avenue. Tiny beers, tinier whiskeys, some sort of toy surprise. Then some of us making very bad decisions about how to conduct ourselves in public or when to call it a night. You should be there. You know who you are.

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]

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]

See You Next Week--April Goatening

As the trickster sprite eamondaly threw me out of a cab last night, he rather cheerfully noted "See you next week!" which, of course, is true. Next week is the April Goatening. You should come.

First Goat of the New Year

Assuming we all make it through to the other side of the holidays, the First Wednesday of the Month (and, indeed, of the new year itself) is January 2. Join us at the Goat for tinybeers and random whiskeys and sandwiches of various types topped with fried eggs.

GOATENATING THE COUNTRYSIDE

September has begun (or will have had begun when this meetup has happened) and thus it is time for a billy goat tavern meetup followed by the totally optional (and totally awesome) karaoking at the blue frog.

Something Something May Goat

Same Goat time, same Goat location. We will also honor the closing of the Bizarro Goat. And THAT is why, you DON'T OFFER FRIES.

March Goating--Pre-shearing party

I keep losing track of when the March Goating is. It should be next week, but for the leap year thing, it's the week after. So I'm putting it here, to keep me from forgetting. Perhaps it will help someone else. In the interests of helping others, we'll meet instead at the Grafton Pub, in Lincoln Square, where misskaz is guest bartending from 6pm-9pm to raise money for the shearing of her goat head for charity.

Monthly Goat.

Tiny Beers, cheeseborgers, possibly springlike weather. What has everyone been up to since last month? Meet us at the usual place, at the usual time, and listen to the usual stories. It will be fun! No, really. It usually is! The question is: "What are you doing to ensure it stays that way?" That's what I thought; see you there.
