Since I know you all have been missing me terribly (don't deny it), I think I may actually come to this one. Hooray!

On Monday, I go to The Girl & the Goat for dinner

On Tuesday, I go see the Mountain Goats play a show (also, my birthday!)

On Wednesday, I go to the Billy Goat Tavern.

Hmmm.

On Thursday, you ride a goat at the zoo.

On Friday, you perform with Goat Island.

On Saturday, you can try to cross a bridge with two friends and get threatened to be eaten by a troll.

Just to feel more in-touch with goat-kind.

Adam, I had actually joked that I should go to the 'farm' part of the zoo on Thursday and pet the goats.

I'm too lazy, though.

On Sunday you make a Goat Scrotum Ale?

Then the following week, you switch from Goat to Toga.

When I was a bluegrass hiphop MC, my name was Oat G.

mr bleary's childhood nickname was "goats". also, "boots". because he had goats and wore boots. those kids were very literal.

this is where I tell you that if you have not eaten at Girl and the Goat you need to eat there. NOW. Well, make a reservation, which takes like a couple months in advance, and eat there then. You will thank me.

Man, I'm bummed I'm missing this. Looks like it'll be another well-attended goating. Off to ever-exciting Peoria!

Say hi to the ghost of Sam Kinison for me.

how late does the goat-up go? wednesday is hula night - but that's from 8:30-10. so i can go early (maybe) or late (sweaty). advice? should i be posting this to the green? IKYANMSD, but is it better to go early or late?

I'd say early. By 10PM, we've either moved on to karaoke or gone home.

I'm finally going to attend another meetup! It's unfortunate that this meetup will lack delicious pizza, but the burgers should almost make up for the lack of deep dish goodness.

You guys are hardcore. Everytime I check out IRL, you guys are planning another one at the Goat.

Just another reason why Chicago is the awesomest city of all time.
Fuck you Athens.

I shall be there early, per usual. 5-ish.

I am sorry to say that Emma and I will be unable to attend this go-round, but we will definitely plan on coming in May for our LAST NON-MARRIED MEETUP EVAR!!!!!!

Yeah, I'll be there earlyish. Rossi's has been closed for repairs the past few days so I need to run by there and make sure they didn't convert it into a fucking ultralounge or something.

I'm soooo tired from lack of sleep the last few days, but have no excuse not to stop by for a beer or two on my way out of the building. I'll be there at 5 as usual.

I appreciate the use of the Yay! tag.

I feel like there's a whole meetup that happens before I even get there. Damn all you downtown workers! *shake fist*

I'm heading down early too: I worked 'til 4am and want to get a quick drink in before I pass out.

DAMN YOU CHRIS FOR MAKING US STAY OUT FOUR TO SIX HOURS LONGER THAN WE'D INTENDED

You guys were raging 'til 4am? Damn.

I only showed you the door. You all walked through it.

Good times though, right?

No, hydro: just 1:30am or so. But it was a very late 1:30am, considering some of us were just planning to "stop by for a beer or two".
posted by eamondaly at 8:58 AM on April 7, 2011


I was tempted to see if you guys were still out when I got off work last night. But I am enjoying my hangover-free Thursday.
posted by hydrophonic at 2:40 PM on April 7, 2011


Oddly enough, I had no hangover to speak of: I've been pretty good about drinking a 2:1 ratio of alcohol to water lately and it's been a game-changer.
