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.)

Goats!

Oh hey, Wednesday is first Wednesday. So join us at the Original Billy Goat Tavern where we eat sandwiches, drink tiny beers, and talk about stuff and junk. Then possibly on an adventure to other places (I'm assuming, but have not confirmed, LiveWire Lounge for rockstar karaoke). We're friendly; you'd like us.

The Continuing Return of SSSCSSCC: Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee

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]

A-Goating We Shall Go

As is the other custom of our people, we gather at the Original Billy Goat Tavern, sip the tiny beers, quaff the tiny whiskeys, eat the beast (no fries). Then make the long journey to Live Wire, tip our bartenders generously and show each other the love. You know you want to.

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.

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]
