January Goatening

Wed January 1 at 6:00 PM, Billy Goat Tavern
430 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Last night we discussed having the January Goat on the SECOND Wednesday, rather than the first, owing to that being New Year's Day, and owing to Berlin's Bowie Ball on the 2nd. What say you all? You all seem to say the First Wednesday is the First Wednesday and None Shall Encumber its Celebration. So be it.
Too bad about the Frog, though. And if people are interested in an earlier time, let me know.

I will have to miss it. 2nd Wednesdays are Girl Scout Wednesdays.

This is fine. I'm just sayin'.

I remain entirely in favor of this.

I'd vote for the traditional time, owing entirely to the fact that I could make it on the 1st, but not the week after.

I just confirmed the Goat will be open; I'm checking in with various parties to make sure the Frog will be, too.

I would most likely miss the second Wednesday, but could make the first.

The Frog will be closed New Year's Day.

Still broomballin' on any Wednesday.

Broomballing sounds like a whole lot of fun.

It is. It looks like this. Our team is terrible, but we run around on the ice with sticks and hit the ball and have a good time.

You are aware that there are these things called Ice Skates. These novel implements can serve to make ice traversal far less perilous and padding necessitating.
For this goatening, I'll be in New Orleans, so if I happen to run into any mefites/karaoke, I'm sure you'll read it here first.

Do you think amateurs playing sports on ice are less likely to injure themselves via collisions and falling with ice skates instead of without?

Back in my day, they taught us to skate in kindergarten, outside, in winter, and we liked it. Now get off my frozen lawn yeh amateurs.

So I'm the only one that's going to be there tomorrow? Or do you think people will show that haven't rsvp'd?

Oh, this is today, isn't it.

My wife and I realized that today will be the first day in this holiday season we'll have to ourselves, without any relatives. So we're going to stay in, relax, and gripe about our parents.

No go for me. I realized I've taken almost no vacation time this holiday so I'm going to order in French Toast and finish Breaking Bad Season 4 with my baby today.

I didn't know you had a baby.

Bad news, folks: The Goat, she is closed. Doors locked, lights out.

I'll be meandering in the neighborhood for a bit, but there's not much open.
posted by Iridic at 4:09 PM on January 1, 2014

That suuuuuuuuucks. I called and they said they'd be open.
