Fri April 19 at 7:00 PM, Cheesies
958 West Belmont Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
April is National Grilled Cheese Month. Let's celebrate together at Cheesies (958 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL 60657).
I believe this is the last of the events discussed by the planning committee (TINCC planning commitee) focusing on getting together on a weekend, and basing the get together around cheese. Please feel free to discuss at this meetup when we should next get together on a weekend and eat cheesy things.

Yes, I concur.

I assume this is the antipodal meetup. So we're looking at midway through this, the cheeseist and cruelest month. April 20th? Early evening/prior to what-the-hell-am-I-doing-in-this-part-of-town-with-all-these-people time?

Stumbling distance to home.

This is A antipodal meetup. There maybe other ones as well.

And it starts on 4/19, though we can keep eating cheese and drinking scotches til 4/20 rolls around if you like.

Even less stumbling distance to my home. This is a good choice.

Ah, hell. I have plans at Emporium that night.

Sorry, reading comprehension fail/ wishful thinking. I thought it was more like feel free to discuss when we should have THIS meetup regarding cheesy things.
The wishful thinking part is that Saturday would be far more amenable, for me.

The Emporium trip has been rescheduled, so Cheesies it is.

OK. Which one of you did this?

srboisvert: I am close to certain that the Radical Anti-Wrigley-hotel-Development-Shenanigans crowd was behind the goat thing.
posted by crush-onastick at 6:26 AM on April 11, 2013

Radical because someone thought putting a goats head in a box was a good idea, or radical in other ways too?
posted by garlic at 1:27 PM on April 11, 2013

The former, certainly, hopefully also the latter. Things could get interesting . . . .

so If you're into that sort of thing, groupon has a cheesie's groupon going. I don't groupon and don't know how it works or if this would be an occasion when it wouldn't, but those of you into it can probably figure it out.

Peeps answering this question about loving Chicago ought to come out to Cheesies so the regular IRL-ers can share our love of Chicago with you too!

I know you know this is tonight, but I just wanted to make sure that you know that I know that you know.

Good thing I checked, I thought it was tomorrow. (obviously I'm really good at forgetting dates)

I'm downgrading to a 'maybe' as I'm headed to hand-hold at the hospital...nothing serious, just an MRI was scheduled without talking to me about it by a claustrophobe. Might not make it for dinner but will keep an eye on the thread if things change.

I lied. Andy's cancelled his MRI.

Good, bring him along!

I'm drinking a beer. Headed down as soon as I'm done.

Good,bring him along!

He's meeting us there. Cheese's beats MRIs every time.
posted by MCMikeNamara at 4:43 PM on April 19, 2013

Pretty crowded. I'm here though.

We're in the back.
