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.

Live Goat on a Wire

First Wednesday of the month, first Wednesday of the new year! Bring your resolutions and drown them in a tiny beer (in a weird new glass) at the Original Billy Goat Tavern. Then adjourn to the Livewire Lounge (3394 N Milwaukee Ave) for karaoke of the finest sort. [more inside]

First Wednesday is Upon Us

First, we meet at the Original Billy Goat Tavern. Then we decamp for shenanigans. You should join us because the world is a terrible place, but the Goat is familiar and the Chicago Metahounds are the best folks around. [more inside]

Fly the Tiny Tiny W

So, of course, first Wednesday is this week, but there's some sort of sporting event closely associated with the Goat and the question is: do we go? [more inside]

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]

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]

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]

May Goatup!

Time for our regularly scheduled monthly meetup at the Billy Goat, plus a very important PSA: Mother's Day is the Sunday after this meetup! If you're at this meetup and haven't figured something out yet, you're setting yourself up for failure. Don't let it happen to you. [more inside]

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.

Mr. Zarquon goes to Chi Town

I haven't seen you chicagoan cabalists (of which there doesn't exist) in forever. I am going to be in town for work on the 25th, arriving on April 24th. Anyone around for drinks and hanging out? I will be staying in the north shore area.

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.

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.

Holiday Goat.

Billy Goat Brouhaha
