pre trivia poutine / during triva poutine seems like it may be a thing as well.

bibligrrl and I are meeting up for poutine that day around 5:30! If someone wants to entertain me in the area in between poutine and trivia, I suppose I can just hang around for both. :D

Well, there's no reason not to head to the Pub early; it will be open. There are more comfortable bars around there, but Town Hall has good bartenders. But there's lots nearby and further away from Wrigley (there is no game Thursday, by the way).

Hey, I'm going to actually come to this. Someone just tell me where and when to be for maximum meeting up with people/food time and I'll be there.

5:30 for poutine is a little early for me because I'm cat-sitting this week. If that's the plan, I may just see you all at the Pub.

Oh, good point. 5:30 is too early for me, too, what with work and dog-tending that has to happen beforehand.

Well, I am definitely having poutine because I cannot wait one more day to check it out and I am also definitely not going to be able to get there by 5:30 either. So if there's interest in a later meal shift, I'm up for that. Or I can eat by myself and meet you there. Because I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

All I know is that I've got fries and trivia on my schedule and pretty thrilled.

(If I still managed to bump into the 5:30 poutine crowd, that would also be a bonus, but don't keep on eating until you can't eat any more on my account.)

Mike, I can probably get up there by 6:30 at the earliest. Howzzat?

6 30 works for me!

Me too!

Tonight's bonus point

By the way, I just changed to "maybe". I'm so far behind on so much stuff personal and professional that I might have to bail. Still getting my hair cut, so it'll be a last-minute call.

WAIT. Where am I going tonight. People say poutine. Is it this place?

(Or at least that was my intention.)

that's my plan too.

holy cow, I think I know the bonus point answer!
posted by garlic at 12:45 PM on April 17, 2014

I definitely know it! I see Mark post the bonus questions on facebook all the time and never have any friggin clue what they are. But I've watched the entire run of King of the Hill at least twice all the way through. I GOT THIS, SON. BRING IT.

I'm out on prepoutine. My train home got rerouted back to the Loop because of "police activity" on the westside tracks, so now I'm taking a circuitous route that'll probably mean I won't get home for...a while. Also the guy sitting next to me right now is widelegging it and hasn't responded to my insinuations of his assumed testicle disease. :(

We are here for poutine! I had to work late, so we haven't even gotten food yet. Come one, come all.
posted by booknerd at 4:16 PM on April 17, 2014

We won! Crush, mike and I split the $180 in winnings.
