Ice Cream Social for Chicago!

Sat July 30 at 4:00 PM, George's Ice Cream and Sweets
5306 N Clark St, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
So, there's not a Chicago Ice Cream Social. I proposed one. The votes are in!
Such as they are, anyway. Looks like the 30th is most preferred date. I'm gonna go with George's, as it was met with much enthusiasm. Let's say 4:00pm?

I suggest Margie's Candies (I think the Montrose location is a little bigger), George's (if we get 10 of us, for $16/head we can rent the party room if we are so inclined), or Bobtail because it's convenient for me!

My neighborhood just got an ice cream shop, I think it opened about a week ago. It's called Bajo Cero. This isn't to say that we should have our thing there, I'm just glad it exists.

Aww, I am out of town on all three of those days (and actually the entire last week of July, from the 23rd to the 31st).

George's is so excellent!

Damn, this is in my neighborhood but I'm out of town as well. Maybe I'll just go up there for lunch today.

Yes, THAT George's. Basically, that's how I even knew it existed as an option,

We spent hours and hours at the emergency vet and I missed the ice cream and I'm wiped out. Sorry I'm missing the fun, but I'll almost certainly be at Goatfrog.

This guy has some sort of injury to his back end (soft tissue, not visible on the many x-rays) and has now been prescribed 4-6 weeks of bed rest. Right. We're converting the bath/dressing room suite to a cat bed with nothing to jump on and trying to figure out how we're going to sleep through cats being separated by a door that's never ever supposed to be closed. We're relieved the bloodwork and x-rays and everything don't show the scary stuff (bone cancer, for instance) but this is stressful, folks.

Hang in there, felines and humans both.
