Man that Goat is Wired--1st Wednesday
posted May 25, 2017 6:16 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed June 7 at 6:00 PM, Original Billy Goat Tavern
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
First Wednesday is throwing us a curve ball for June. It's not next week, like you think it is, but the week after! Yes, Wednesday of the approaching week is only May 31. So don't try to meet up until a week from Wednesday, when it will be June 7. 5:30-6:00ish at the Original Billy Goat Tavern in the seedy underbelly of tourist-addled springtime Michigan Avenue.
Afterwards, we will adjourn to the Live Wire Lounge for rockstar karaoke with fog machines, fancy lights and the world's best bathroom for selfies. And booze. Intense end-of-civilized-society angst-driven booze.

We miss your face. SO SHOW IT.

I won't be at the Goat portion, yet again! This month I'll be at Run For Something Chicago! supporting people younger than me who are trying to run for office. But then I'll be at LiveWire, poaching someone else's go-to list.

I could do something the 31st but not the 7th.

I might miss the Goat portion as well, as my wife is flying in that night.

i don't think an interim stop has been planned, though cheesies has been that stop when it happens as far as I know.

I am here! and 70% asleep because I had to be at work at 7 today 😴

I'm on my way. Be there by 7 or earlier.

Yeah, I just came in to tell you that even though I stayed out approximately 90 minutes later than planned, I regret nothing today and it's ALL BECAUSE OF YOU. You are loved by me.

By the way, the #77 which I manage to just catch often when leaving Live Wire has the *chattiest* bus driver and is always full of people who have no idea that the #77 does not run the last 1/3 of its route after midnight. (okay, always has a couple people who have no idea they're going to have to walk home). Last night, though, he was very concerned that I not walk near some guy who was on the sidewalk when the bus hit its last stop and I wanted to say "if you'd just drive the whole damn route, I would not have to!"

Yeah, we should probably just start making Cheesie's official.

I have to admit, I don't get the appeal of adding more travel to the night or of Cheesie's in particular. But the cool thing is 1. I don't actually make it to 1st Weds all that often and 2. as an adult I can make my own choices! :)

I saved half of the grilled cheese sandwich I picked up in my backpack so I could smoke a cigarette before we got to Live Wire, and then I ate it on the couch when I got home, and y'all. I'm a real good planner sometimes.
