This Hurts to Say: Last Goat-Frog is Upon Us
posted December 28, 2015 5:56 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed January 6 at 5:30 PM, Original Billy Goat Tavern
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
In the spirit of today's seriously crappy weather, I thought I'd take this moment to invite you to the very last possible Goat-Frog First Wednesday ever. The Goat endures, but the Frog closes mid-January.
Tiny beers, grilled meats, Wheel of Fortune at the Original Billy Goat after work. Decamp to the Blue Frog around 9:00pm for what is sure to be a shitshow as we release the Metahounds one last time.

Be there or forever regret not knowing.

Anyone up for super early brunch on the 7th?
posted by crush-onastick at 6:06 PM on January 1, 2016


On the one hand, I am so excited. On the other hand, I am so unhappy.

Also, I don't know what to wear.

Hotel Tonight has had rooms at the Godfrey for $99 the past couple of days, FYI.

I, for one, have been having brunch super early (like between 3 - 5 am) for the past few months of first Wednesdays. But I don't think that's what you meant.

No, actually, that's totally what I meant. Unless you were thinking of second brunch.

Well I wasn't thinking of a second brunch but now I am.

(Actually, there is probably actually always one part of my brain thinking of second brunch; it's just quietly whirring in the background waiting for somebody to bring up sausage gravy.)

That counts as brunch? So I've just always been super-classy and just didn't know it?

Well, it counts as brunch cause *we're* so super-classy we make brunch whereever we go.

I do generally have the ingredients for a bloody mary on my person at all times.

For anyone concerned, when I got home Truman jumped about four feet in the air then grabbed the nearest tennis ball and shoved it roughly into my hand.

Legend has it if you go to the basement in the late hours of a Wednesday and sit very quietly you can still hear them singing to this day.
