LOCATION CHANGE--The Goat Blowed Up Real Good
posted June 28, 2018 11:55 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed July 4 at 5:00 PM, R Bar Chicago
2827 N Broadway St, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
We tried and failed to come up with an alternate plan R Bar Chicago (Renaldi's bar annex) for First Wednesday which happens to be this miserable shitheel of a country's birthday celebration.There is no Live Wire karaoke that night, but we think Shakers on Clark in Lakeview/Boystown will have karaoke for those who enjoy. If not, trivia starts at R Bar around 9 pm.
If we all change our minds and meet somewhere more north because none of us have any reason to be downtown or downtown-adjacent (sorry, garlic) on a day off, we'll talk about it here.

The bar part of the Renaldi's on Broadway at Diversey has $3 burgers / $3 beers every Wednesday and $10 beer, shot & a slice deals every day, if we want to skip the Goat this month.

omg I was just thinking a couple of weeks ago as I walked by there that I haven't been to Renaldi's since the time we had a meet-up there, which I've just searched to discover was December 2010. I'd certainly be up for moving to there this month.

we are renting a tandem bicycle that day. If I haven't worn Denail out making her pedal me around town by then, we'll try to make it.

huskerdont, we're here every month (well we're usually elsewhere most months but "here" in the existing sense) so hope we see you on some First Wednesday soon. And welcome to Chicago.

I just found out that Diner Grill re-opens at 6 am on July 5th. Make of this information (and infer my plans for the evening of the 4th) what you will.

8AM meeting after a federal holiday? Savages.

I was pretty pissed off by it. since it was scheduled Monday and I was not scheduled to be in the office at all. But there's nothing I can do about it.

Crap. Even on a holiday, I can't make it. Best wishes, and thanks for the public notice. Someday, I'll be able to attend again.

The good news is that Andy is coming with me for at least dinner The bad news is that we haven't left the house yet. (This is entirely my fault)

I peaked too early today and got too much sun and now it's nap time.
