Excited that the Mefi-Chi crew will be joining us!

Thanks for putting this together. It should be a fun show!

If you're sad you might miss it don't be too sad. We do this every Thursday!

I was unaware there was the possibility of pie. This changes everything.

Wait pie what
posted by phunniemee at 2:17 PM on January 8, 2014

1st place: cash
2nd place: pie
3rd place: you're fired.

(actually I don't remember what third place was)

Well with cash I could buy anything! I could even buy pie!
posted by phunniemee at 3:26 PM on January 8, 2014

That's right! Pie! I forgot about the pie. MMMMmmm pie. Also, there must be somewhere in the 'hood to get pie after drinking. Clarke's? Melrose?

I hate pie.

By the way, there is a very good chance I'll be heading down to the Frog afterward: space in the car of the future will be available but limited.

you can park at my place--if you don't mind alley snow and don't feel like trawling up and down Halsted.

I have a ton of errands to run after work, but I might take you up on that if I get down there early enough.

Yes, I do.

I mean, not personally or biblically. But I think I can answer the question correctly.

Dibs on Mike's team.

I want to explain why me knowing isn't a show of my brilliance but I feel like it just gives away the answer. (Well, not really, but to explain my thought process it would.)

What time are folks showing up?
posted by crush-onastick at 4:14 PM on January 9, 2014

On our way with a stop for fast food...
posted by garlic at 5:03 PM on January 9, 2014

So probably 8.
posted by garlic at 5:04 PM on January 9, 2014

I didn't realize this wasn't a food-having place, so I am next door speed ordering and hopefully very soon eating sushi.

One of our teams lost more spectacularly than the other! Go us!

Other scrabble words we could have played for equal points: "tower" and "aware".

"Aorta" has more letters but fewer points.

I can't come up with something that used all 7 but I'll cheat tomorrow to see if it was possible.
