June, the Goatening

Wed June 3 at 5:00 PM, The Original Billy Goat Tavern
430 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
First Wednesday is next week. Join us at the Goat for food and tiny beers after work. Follow along when we decamp to the Frog (676 N LaSalle) for booze, awkward dancing and the finest karaoke you never sang. 2015 has been dialing the awesome way up and I hope you will help us keep the trend going. Seriously, folks, why are you not joining us?

Crush! You beat me by 8 minutes! We must have the same internal calendar.

You also must now have a duel to the death.

Sorry, it's in the bylaws.

I have looked everywhere. I can find neither my copy of the bylaws nor my dueling trousers.

I'm appreciate that there are no bylaws easily found but I am totally more interested in the idea of dueling trousers and if we need to go shopping for them as a group at any time, please let me know ASAP.

Now I've mislaid my dueling gauntlets so I'm inclined to call the whole thing off.

Which I suppose means "I yield"

I reject this duel on the grounds that apparently I'd have to put on pants.

Today was stupid but even if tomorrow is too, I'll have Goatening.

Oh god this week has been ridiculous.

I'll be at the Goat a little early, then I'm going to disappear for a bit and pop up again at the Frog. Also, if anyone knows of a secret nap spot in the Loop, let me know. I'm going to need it.

Can't make this one, sorry!

no worries, as long as your Mom can make it.

I'm here. Woot!

I see how it is. The one time I'm early no one else is.

I'm direct to Frog this evening, unexpectedly. I'll show you my ashamed face when I arrive.

You guys are amazing and I love all of you.

I feel like I let you down. The sportsball distracted me.
posted by eamondaly at 7:57 AM on June 4, 2015

I had some, let's say, issues with pacing yesterday afternoon and evening, and though I have no real regrets, I hope everyone feels the same way.

I'm sure next month will be much better because I'm never more responsible than on a Wednesday that starts a four day weekend.
