Tue August 12 at 1:00 PM, Pierogi Heaven
169 North Wells Street, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Second Tuesdays squeaked out ahead in the poll, so we'll have our first official lunch up Tuesday the 12th at 1:00pm. We're going to stick with Pierogi Heaven, on Wells between Lake and Randolph, for the first one. Hope to see you there!
In future months, we will probably hit up Eataly, Cafecito, the Berghof, Ceres Cafe, or any place someone decides to post in advance of the second Tuesday. I know I'm looking forward to a BYOL in Daley once the weather gets definitively fall-like.

it's a very late lunch. for those who are more than fashionably late.

Or really unfashionably early for Sunday Brunch.

I'll never be able to go to one of these, but I just wanted to comment that I think this is awesome.

If you really, truly loved us, you'd be able to figure out a way to make it I think.

I will never be able to make any of these (half hour lunch, Lakeview) but I'd like to point out that

A) the answer to "do you want bacon and onions" at Pierogi Heaven is always YES, DEAR PIEROGI GODS, YES

B) Pierogi Heaven is across from an adult bookstore that is one of the only non-Boystown joints I've found that sells Gun Oil, my preferred lubricant

I used to make a whole lot of lunchtime pierogi+lube runs when I worked downtown, can you tell?

Alright! I've always got Euchre league during the usual Wed night meetup, and I was going to Pierogi Heaven today anyway. See you all there.

A haiku:

Hold up, where am I?
Am I THIS bad at walking?
Compass... compass... shit.

GRAH! This lecture is forever. Probably 30 minutes from when I type this.

I hope you all had a great time.

I had to work on a powerpoint presentation through lunch because I am a walking and talking corporate stereotype.

I made a powerpoint presentation in middle school for the computer class unit on "how to use powerpoint." It was about cows and it was full of animated cow cliparts.

I feel like I could be hired to the buzzfeed writing staff based on the strength of that powerpoint presentation alone.

Mike, what I'm saying is you should put cow gifs in your presentation.

This was an early google result for cow gif.

I'm sorry.

Everyone should click on this because it is totally life affirming and will not scar you at all.
