Goat Song

Wed June 5 at 6:00 PM, Billy Goat Tavern
430 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
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.
Per usual: meet at the Billy Goat whenever you get off work (I'll be there near 5.) Drink tiny beers, enjoy friendship and fun.

Those of hardier stock will traverse to the Blue Frog, 676 N. LaSalle St., for more beers and karaoke and more fun.

Don't forget: SUMMER HOURS ARE IN EFFECT. If you show up and we're not there, read this thread! We're probably just a block away on a patio somewhere.

Goat Lucky via Cold Lurkey

also, via edit window, I'm an idiot, and that's what she already posted. I wish I could delete this whole comment, but let it stand for my shame.

Mary has "Get Lucky" (Zach killed it), so I don't see any reason why you couldn't bring a goat costume and bleat during it.

Now that would make me overlook my usual calling-it-a-night-time. Please, please, please.

If I do a Google image search for goat costume, there's a disturbing number of hot pictures.

(More than zero makes it a disturbing number for me, in case you were curious.)

Those are satyrs or fauns, and satyrs are fertility demi-gods so...

That's okay, we've officially designated today Friday, May Derpy-First, and labelled, or mis-labeled, our tubes and preps accordingly.

That statue is fucking hilarious and awesome.

One hour of goat beatboxing.

Remember to think about cheese!

Also I have no goat-related material, but I'm pretty sure both of these songs are about porn (SFW): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDajrwMF5To … - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6rZ94UAIY8

Just saw this today at the Chazen Museum of Art. NSFW.

Here's a SFW cropped version.

I never knew how much my life was lacking erotic goat statues until this past week.

I'm gonna hit up the HWLC before heading over because I am without book. Anyone want anything from the library? A short pencil? Some tax forms? Some to-be-recycled batteries? JUST LET ME KNOW, I'VE GOT YOU COVERED.

Looks like they only have one copy of it and it's at the Toman branch. :(

I'll be late. Trying to bang something out.

Your face is trying to bang something out.

(I don't think I did that right.)

I foolishly grabbed a bus going down Michigan Ave. There is literally a little old lady walking with a cane on the sidewalk outside who is beating us.

I read this as she was literally beating your bus with her cane (because you were stopped?); it was a fun image.

I'll be late. Also trying to bang something out.

I'm going straight to the frog, but I'm not banging anything out right now (heyoooooo)

I was absolutely fine this morning, despite having seen the lights come up in the Frog for the first time. But at around 3:30p.m., the bill came due. Sore throat, dead tired, absolutely useless. So, note to self: still too old to be a responsible human the day after a full night of karaoke.
But that post-mortem finished, can the two mefites who were not on the RSVP list, who did a convincing rendition of Toto's Africa, please identify themselves?
posted by Cold Lurkey at 6:36 PM on June 6, 2013

Hello! Africa was cmchap and I.

(And we had a lovely time at the meetup. You're all wonderful!)
