One World, First Wednesday, One Love (plus 20th Anniversary planning)
posted May 30, 2019 11:37 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed June 5 at 5:00 PM, The Original Billy Goat Tavern
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
It's World Environmental Day and also Arbor Day in New Zealand, so since we can't go plant some trees there sadly, let's drown our sorrows for fellowship, beers tiny and otherwise, and hopefully Wheel of Fortune. I'm also commandeering this time to discuss what Chicago will be doing for Metafilter's 20th anniversary in July. Eventually, we'll dismiss to karaoke if the last ~10 years are anything to go by.
We're usually down on the left side as you walk in the door and we keep an eye open for folks as they walk through the door. I'll be there with my phone, the number of which like my somewhat accurate face pic, are both in my profile. What I'm saying is that new folks are always very welcome.

I am off of work next Thursday, so there's a very good chance I'll be there!

I'll be there briefly before heading to Carol's just to say hi!

I won't be able to stay long, but I'm planning to be there for an hour or so and am excited for anniversary planning!

There's a community meeting about the racism in my neighborhood (after a protest in front of Progress Bar yesterday) and I think I'm going to be there instead of the Goat. Let me know whether we're hitting Carol's or Live Wire or whatsit.

Not in terms of tonight, but I started discussing 20th Anniversary detail planning in the established slack channel. You can see it here

I lied, my weekly appointment was moved out this week so it'll be too late for me to go. Have fun y'all!

Gonna be a skosh later than 5 which I'm only pointing out because I'm the one who set it up.

I am here, holding down a table in our normal spot to the left of the entrance.

Is there going to be a Billy Goat meetup on Wednesday July 3? I'm almost certainly still in town by then and would love to see folks.

It's highly likely, though there's some discussion about having it elsewhere (but still nearby).

Please keep me posted!
