Wed September 4 at 6:00 PM, billy goat tavern
430 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
I have a great idea! Let's get together at the classic Chicago bar, the Billy Goat Tavern!
Then afterwards, maybe we can go somewhere where there's karaoke? I hear the blue frog is good!

I dunno, I've heard that, every once in a while, at completely random intervals, a horde of internet nerd friends swarm the Famous Billy Goat Tavern, freak out the squares and the tourists and generally wreck the place. Are you sure you want to risk it? Why don't we go somewhere safe and predictable, like Chilis or Dick's Last Resort?

I'll be hoisting a pint westward in London.

Just a heads up - Mary Mac and Virgil are on vacation next week so they won't be at the Frog! Jill is hosting and not sure who is working bar. I'm sure it will still be an awesome good time. :)

Aww. I've been listening to ABC all week and wanted to try a different one for Mary.

I might make it out this time, but I have to be available for something day-job related. If everything wraps up by, let's say, 9pm, I can meet up with you guys afterward. (As long as you're not at Rock Bottom.)

And here I thought Ms.Mary was messing with me. Sergio seemed... distraught.

I just always assume I'm going to these things, but it turns out we're flying out of town that night instead. I will hoist a tiny beer from California in solidarity.

This is for Mike (and anyone else who wants to be awesome). First episode is called Baby Bomb. Yes.

I'm watching this at work while eating lunch and it may be the best decision I've ever made.

This show is very weird.

Fifteen minutes in, this show is all camel pox and Baby Ellen Page. Loving that.
