Ok, that bacon bomb was pretty good. As we discussed, let's do it again next year. Act now, seats are going fast!

Look at all this plan-making gusto, throwing caution to the wind, and committing to something 10 months out. That's just too much pressure for me. The best I can manage is a 'Maybe'. And even that is done with trepidation.

Oh, man, I need to go lay down after just thinking about this.

...what is this? What is a bacon bomb? Why are we planning something seven months ahead of time?
posted by tzikeh at 5:03 PM on June 25, 2014

We had a meetup. It was great. We wanted to make sure we did it again, so Adam kindly scheduled it for us to happen again.

Having lunch, dreaming about bacon bombs.

Everybody's planning for Halloween, and I'm just sitting here masticating.

It's 133 days until 3-13.

(a fact that would look a lot neater if we formatted dates like the majority of the rest of the world)

FUN FACT, our December goatup will be the 100 day point for this meetup.

Aw, man, and I totally forgot Mike already posted a countdown timer. Way to steal my thunder two months ago, dude.

Is this something that you have to live in Chicago to understand?

What if one never attains understanding but is planning to be in Chicago that weekend? Will outsiders be welcomed? or Bombed?

ETA: Also...I can't read months? nm.

Will outsiders be welcomed?

There's always room for one more.

Guess who forgot this would be in the middle of lent again. But! I'm not giving up meat this lent so hooray!

The bacon bomb, for the confused.

also, I've apparently hit that +googlecal link 3 times so far to make sure I don't forget about this.

Bacon bomb will likely be the first non-fish meat I've had in 2015, so I feel okay with eating it. I have made a liar of myself--I had the Polish at the last Goat Up I attended, which was this year.
posted by crush-onastick at 1:40 PM on February 17, 2015

I guess this will make it your second MEAT up!!!!

Maybe not, but soon you will have bacon!

It is one week to the bacon bomb
Raise your fork to the sky
and praise Crom
Five days: I'm salivating
My mind full of meat my taste buds gyrating
Three days' fasting will make room
That's what I tell myself to stave off a swoon
Yesterday, ate some lesser meat
But it's just one more week til the Big One ends me

The Bacon Bomb shows up at No. 2 on this list of the city's top eating challenges.

I'd like to think I could solo a Bacon Bomb under the right circumstances (fate of the world in the balance, etc.) but the accompanying platter of fries would slow me down.

Hmm, did we have reservations last time?
posted by adamdschneider at 7:36 AM on March 9, 2015

Not in 2014--but it was Thursday, not Friday. I recall because there is a comment about being in the back, staking a claim, in the thread. I don't think we had one in 2011, either, as it was a Monday. We might need one this time, as it's not only Friday, it's actually warm enough to leave the house.
posted by crush-onastick at 8:15 AM on March 9, 2015

Well, they don't do reservations unless it's a "very large group," but they tell me they will probably be able to set aside a table for us since they don't have any other large groups that night. Right now we stand at 10 folks with a bunch of maybes. I am going to tell them 12 unless more people than that turn their maybe to a yes by the time I get up and turn this thing on tomorrow morning.

Thanks for checking on the possibility of a reservation! Always worth asking.

Oh, ho, and now we see the superiority of MY countdown, which counts down to the actual time of the meetup and not just the day. If anyone shows up at midnight tonight, they may be disappointed!

Let's not talk about how I didn't realize this until you pointed it out.

Been sick all week. Thought I'd kicked it but two hours at work today proved I was not at all recovered. I'm so mad I could spit.
posted by eamondaly at 3:16 PM on March 12, 2015

You still have one day, one hour, and 30 minutes to recover. There's hope yet!

As long as it's not on the food this might still be doable.

So I'd be really happy if everyone who was a Maybe showed up (or anyone else for that matter), but if end up with a total of 13, I would also be happy.

(I will probably be happy anyway.)

Mike! What cookies do you want?
posted by phunniemee at 9:01 AM on March 13, 2015

phunnimee are you able to bring cookies? can i get one box samoas and one box tagalongs?

Yup, I can bring cookies.

I am bringing a non-Mefilim, so please be on your weirdest behavior.
posted by adamdschneider at 11:34 AM on March 13, 2015

You say that like it's a choice whether or not I can hold it in.

Also I would like 2 boxes of samoas and a box of thin mints, please, unless you don't want to carry that much in which case the order should be 1) samoas, 2) thin mints, 3) samoas.

(See, I even order cookies weirdly)
