Wed July 5 at 5:00 PM, Original Billy Goat Tavern
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Oh hey, Wednesday is first Wednesday. So join us at the Original Billy Goat Tavern where we eat sandwiches, drink tiny beers, and talk about stuff and junk. Then possibly on an adventure to other places (I'm assuming, but have not confirmed, LiveWire Lounge for rockstar karaoke). We're friendly; you'd like us.

I will not be there this month. :( Sing a sad song for me.

I won't be able to make it due to the insanity that next week is shaping up to be.

I might be able to make this!

My company was one of the ones affected by the ransomware or whatever the hell it was attack, and our IT team is still working diligently to fix it. I have nearly run out of things to do without a computer, and nobody cares what hours I work, so if it's not fixed by Weds, tiny beers for me!

Please do!

Though I'm going to suggest that July First Wednesday is not usually a lively meet-up, friends of mefis are always welcome for any and all shenanigans.

Wow - for the first time in a long while, I think I can actually make this. (Though, I'll almost certainly be late.) Goatzzah!

Cool! I think Jean-Marie will probably show up. How can she recognize you guys?
posted by snorkmaiden at 10:04 PM on July 4, 2017

I'll probably be there for about an hour tonight!

snorkmaiden, we sit off to the left as you come in the entrance and I'm wearing a dress with dinosaurs on it today if that helps.

Still no computer, Mr Fig and I will be there close-ish to 5, 530. Where's the best parking around there?

There's metered street parking right outside, usually that's got a spot or two open, that probably runs the Loop/RN rate of $4/hr. And there's a lot on Illinois and I think Rush but I don't know their rates but I don't think it's as exorbitant as most of the stuff in the area.

I'm filling in as host tonight at Livewire - skipping the Goat and hopefully see you all there!

I am downgrading to a maybe because I am trying to fit five days of work into a two-day work week this week and it's not going well. :(

Sorry about your migraine, crush 😔

This is not happening for me. I'm still working and probably will be for a while yet. Have a great time and I'll see you all soon!
