Wed June 6 at 6:00 PM, The Billy Goat
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
April showers may bring May flowers, but May flowers make my eyes itch. Hopefully, they'll all die in June.
It's June, it's the first Wednesday, come hang and have tiny beers.

I may also be bringing a sister, too. I'll have to see if her flight gets in on time.

You want your eyes to die in June? Long-term, that's probably a bad plan.

This will also be the first June in 2012.
posted by Evilspork at 12:02 AM on May 26, 2012

This is not the first Wednesday. There have been, like, thousands of them already.

True, but there has never been a single Wednesday in June 2012 yet.

By the way, does anyone know anyone who works with leather? I'd like to modify/alter my jacket and would rather give money to a Mefite to do it.
posted by Evilspork at 2:44 PM on May 30, 2012

I won't be off of work until 11-12, but I'll make my way down there.
posted by bryanthecook at 12:10 AM on May 31, 2012

I have never knowingly met another Mefite IRL, but since I work in Pru2, this seems convenient enough that I'll give it a try, grease or no.

He was not amused about some call outs using his real name a week ago or so. I don't know if this is what lead to him hitting the red button. He is on G+ (where all the cool mefites hang out, along with the twitters).

Based on comment history, it isn't a huge leap to assume it was related to the snake handler thread that spawned the "religion is not mental illness" MeTa.

So I said I would work late, but I'm appalled at the sheer amount of mistakes that I've encountered over the last hour or so. I need tiny beers. See you kids in a bit.

Oh, and I may have a co-worker and a friend of hers coming for karaoke too.

Wasn't able to make it, but I discovered that Bevos and I don't just work in the same building, we actually work in directly adjacent offices. Like maybe three feet away from each other.

time to do some askme searching for hangover prevention / hangover cures.
posted by garlic at 11:53 AM on June 7, 2012

Oh, you're right! I did use my card. For some reason I thought I went cash-only.
posted by eamondaly at 12:41 PM on June 7, 2012

hangover cure / prevention research of askme lead to this:

Is there a cure for alchohol hangovers?
posted by garlic at 1:47 PM on June 7, 2012

To help prevent hangovers, order a glass of water with each drink (and drink it). This keeps you from getting dehydrated and spaces out your drinks a bit.

Did I ever tell you about the time my mom got a hangover from drinking too much sprite? Remind me next meetup.
