First Wednesday is Upon Us

Wed December 7 at 6:00 PM, Original Billy Goat Tavern
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
First, we meet at the Original Billy Goat Tavern. Then we decamp for shenanigans. You should join us because the world is a terrible place, but the Goat is familiar and the Chicago Metahounds are the best folks around.
The Original Billy Goat Tavern is on the lower level of Michigan Avenue. Cash only grill, beer and a full bar.

Shenanigans are karaoke. This week our favorite karaoke magic-maker is making her magic at LiveWire Lounge Chicago (3394 N Milwaukee Ave,) and many of us are going there.

We are full of nonsense and looking forward to seeing your face. Don't let us down.

A) So it's making me nervous that nobody posted in the thread, so I'm doing it. Hi!

B) There's absolutely no way I would have got out of bed and gone downtown to work this moring without the promise of seeing your faces tonight, so THANKS!

I have (some of) your girl scout candy!
I got shorted some caramels by council that I won't get until tomorrow night, so two boxes are missing but everything else is there.

Raise your hand if you're not going to be there tonight so I don't schlep things I don't have to schlep:

garlic and I were discussing recently that this is the first GoatUp since the Curse was broken.

What if it's different?

Everything else feels like it is, so who knows?

I was hell-bent that I wasn't going to miss this month.

Then a Vermin Related Thing happened and I resigned myself to dealing with vermin instead of eating cheezborgers.

But lo, the vermin are under control! And so I shall eagerly await the coming of the bus, and see y'all this evening!

Yay for vermin control!

(both macro and in this specific instance)

I'll be there, phunniemee, but I'll be a little late, 7:15-ish.

Yay for vermin control! Which takes the form of very very pretty feral cats who live next door but patrol my yard and make my little cat very jealous.
