Fri May 20 at 6:30 PM, Pequod's Pizza
2207 N Clybourn Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Come have pizza at Pequod's, home of the first pizza meetup. This time, no one gets to share Crush's anchovies.
Because it's excellent goddamn pizza, as Adam will be sure to inform you.

I think I'm going to start an IRL thread for every time I go to work. That oughta show those fuckers in NYC once and for all.

MeFiChi, MoFos!

For the record, on the plane, only a little tired.

Yes Yes, Y'all.

This time, will someone remember to make a proper reservation?
posted by Windigo at 6:38 AM on May 5, 2011

But... that's during Chicago Craft Beer Week. As of this minute I'm not super psyched about the Friday events but I reserve the right to let delicious beer draw me away from delicious pizza. (I have my priorities).

No No, Nobody. I'm going to eat not-pizza this night and then marry a lady the next day.

Oh dammit. I think we're Lincoln Karaoke-ing that night.

More anchovies for me.
posted by crush-onastick at 8:03 AM on May 5, 2011

Windigo, I'll call ahead and everything, once we have a decent idea of numbers...

...and can one not drink Craft Beers before and after such a meetup? Or is there something I'm missing?

Psh you guys are all gonna miss Creepy Bathroom Gandalf.

Term end! I will either be here or ragingly incoherent. Or both.
posted by kurosawa's pal at 8:08 PM on May 5, 2011

Yeah, I'll be in the middle of preparing a 300+ page dissertation for an unreasonable and inhumane deadline. So I'll be ALL ABOUT pizza and unbridled drinking.
posted by LMGM at 12:01 AM on May 6, 2011

If you get me drunk enough I will help with* your dissertation.

*cause irreparable harm to

Any update on numbers? It looks like 15 or so with half the maybes.

I'm out; the beau's coming back that afternoon. (Hooray!) See you guys next time.
posted by phunniemee at 9:30 AM on May 11, 2011

I'm in, as long as I remember. It's in my cellphone calendar, so the remembering should happen.
posted by Evilspork at 4:13 PM on May 11, 2011

Oops, I thought this was this Friday. I'll check back again for numbers to call Pequod's for a heads-up.
posted by BevosAngryGhost at 8:45 AM on May 12, 2011

Sorry I suck, the siren call of a Three Floyd's/Half Acre/Dogfish Head craft beer week event was too strong. See y'all next time!
posted by misskaz at 8:57 AM on May 18, 2011

Game on! All set with a reservation and everything.
posted by BevosAngryGhost at 4:21 PM on May 18, 2011

Do we need to reservatize or is it an umbrella reservation?
posted by Evilspork at 11:15 AM on May 19, 2011

I forgot to RSVP for this. WHat's wrong with me?! Hope they're ok with two more!
posted by adamdschneider at 12:09 PM on May 19, 2011

I set up for 15 under Metafilter or Ben, assuming some confirmed may drop, and some maybes may show, so we should be fine.

Also, PIZZA! I'm already hungry. Paritally because I didn't have much breakfast.
posted by BevosAngryGhost at 8:18 AM on May 20, 2011

Metafilter or Ben

Medafilderörben, funnily enough, is German for "the world-sundering hunger for pizza." Which is what I have at the moment.

Much more definitely coming. Kind of wish I could put my guest as a maybe, but there's a strong chance Special Lady Friend will be along with me.

Anyone know what this is about (from the Pequod's website):

Hmmm. "Positions available: Assistant Manager, Kitchen Manager, Wait Staff, Kitchen Staff, Delivery Drivers, Phone People, Bussers/Food Runners." Something's provoked some massive turnover.
posted by Iridic at 9:25 AM on May 20, 2011

I see the help wanted listing but not that message. Odd though. Even just that job listing suggests something happened... Weird.
posted by sparkletone at 9:48 AM on May 20, 2011

You don't see the message? Weird, it's just on the front page.

posted by adamdschneider at 10:16 AM on May 20, 2011

RIP, Rasslor.
posted by adamdschneider at 11:14 AM on May 20, 2011

No idea. I was curious, too. Time for sleuthing between pizza bites tonight?

It's just mentioning live bulls games for me in multiple browsers. Crazy.
posted by sparkletone at 1:08 PM on May 20, 2011

No mention of anything scandalous on yelp either. Doubly strange!

If only I hadn't left my Deerstalker hat and magnifying glass at home.
posted by sparkletone at 1:10 PM on May 20, 2011

Maybe they took it down. I don't see it any more, either, but I did from home on Wednesday.
posted by BevosAngryGhost at 1:12 PM on May 20, 2011

It doesn't appear any more, but it did when I posted that image. I also checked Yelp, certain that any misstep by a local pizza joint would be thoroughly documented there. Curious!
posted by adamdschneider at 1:35 PM on May 20, 2011

Very odd. Did anyone check to see if Spock had a beard?
posted by eriko at 1:45 PM on May 20, 2011

I will most certainly be checking to make sure that none of our pizzas are bearded.
posted by sparkletone at 2:22 PM on May 20, 2011

I'm working till about 8:30 but I might stop by afterward... hopefully people will still be around at 9:30?
posted by tivalasvegas at 3:04 PM on May 20, 2011

and, in what may or may not be a horrible idea, I've temporarily thrown my cell phone number into my profile, as I'm not going to be at a computer between now and when I leave work, so... could someone text me if you all are leaving / moving elsewhere?
posted by tivalasvegas at 3:09 PM on May 20, 2011

Woo! Pizza is on. Horrible dissertation-writing is also on, but I will create a brief opening of possibility in the intentional fabric of intellectual capital in order to eat the fuck out of some pizza.
posted by LMGM at 4:03 PM on May 20, 2011

Oh shit, 6:30pm! I better get moving. You kids eat way too early.
posted by LMGM at 4:03 PM on May 20, 2011

thanks jerks
posted by tivalasvegas at 8:17 PM on May 20, 2011

Sorry! I only just saw your messages, which is clearly too late to be helpful. None of the iPad-ers were there to give us up-to-date thread information, so we were clueless.
