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.

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]

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]

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.

Sensationnel, la quinze ans de MetaFilter! Rejoignez-nous pour La Course de Garcons & Filles de Cafe!

"On July 14th 2014 the French will take over Daley Plaza, in a celebration organized by volunteers belonging to many organizations under the umbrella of the French Consulate. Le clou du spectacle, the show stopper? It will be la Course de Garçons &; Filles de Café, bien sûr! This is when waiters or wannabe waiters compete in a 200 meters sprint that involves running as fast as you can while balancing a tray full of (plastic) glasses — without spilling a drop of grand cru."

Hi, folks - I'm in Chicago for some business and was wondering if anybody would like to do an evening meetup? I've never been to a meetup before and since I'm coming into a bigger city I thought maybe...? I'll be staying in the Near North Side area, not far from MCA Chicago.

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?

Any Mefites going to ASCO ?

So, ASCO (American Society for Clinical Oncology) is coming up, and I'm curious to know if there are any other oncology-oriented Mefites (at all), and if so, if any are going to the meeting? It's a pretty big meeting -- certainly there's got to be a few, huh? A cancer-themed meetup? Could be interesting. We could, as a group, kibbitz as we roam the exhibit hall seeking out free trinkets and frozen yogurt treats.
