See You Next Week--April Goatening
posted March 25, 2013 6:54 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed April 3 at 6:00 PM, Billy Goat Tavern
430 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
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.

Wait, I will be in Texas starting the next evening. We should just import the whole (nonexistant) cabal to Texas for an alterna-meetup.

It's totally a small state; I'm sure you'll just bump into each other.

I am lame. I'm sick, and trying to get the house on the market in 5 days, and leaving for a trip on Saturday. As much as I'd love some Goat tiny beers and Frog karaoke to tide me over for the next couple weeks, I'll have to pass.

Aw, we'll miss you!

And you, too!

I will try to make this one-- my first meetup ever!

Do I find y'all with "HI ARE YOU THE INTERNET PEOPLE I'M LOOKING FOR THE KIND OF PEOPLE THAT ARE ON THE INTERNET" or is there a more subtle protocol?

I'll be there around 5:15-5:20 and I am a chick with a shaved head. That's pretty easy to spot. Welcome!

We are almost always the large crowd on the left side of the Goat, with all the tables piled together. But you can search mefichi on Flickr and scope out some of the usual suspects.

The fact that you aren't a raging alcoholic is a real testament to something. I want a drink just reading that.

Well, if it's a diet coke you're after, you can go fuck yourself.

Do you work for an angry 6 year old? Cause it sounds like you work for an angry six year old.
posted by crush-onastick at 2:17 PM on April 3, 2013

I like most of the 6 year olds I know.

I'm here and alone and the wifi is down and my tummy hurts and I'm in a pissy mood but there are animatronic dinosaurs on TV and some dude who looks like a poor man's Giancarlo Esposito talking about them.

You should help out this guy with his question.

Next month I will debut a karaoke tune.

This month I was just happy to attend.

There was a lot of hackery. Always glad to contribute.

Funenemy, is your boss a rockstar? That sounds like a concert rider. There are ice machines and vending machines on every second floor in most hotels.

I'd suggest a job hunt before he has you sorting groupies.
