Auxiliary-not-Goat-mid-month-Chi-trivia-meetup 2: Electric Boogaloo!
Since the Goat happens kind of late in the month and a two-weeks-post-Goat date would put this right in the middle of holiday madness, I'm setting it for just one week post-Goat. Will change if people think the 22nd would work.

Also, a couple people mentioned that they liked the idea of a regular Pequods meetup. What say you?

Oh gosh, now I'm reading that to the tune of the part from The Barber of Seville. Figaro, yo.

Trivia! Son qua.
Ehi, trivia! Son qua.
Trivia qua, trivia la, trivia qua, trivia la,
Trivia su, trivia giu, trivia su, trivia giu.

Pronto prontissimo son come il fumine:
sono il factotum della citta.

See, I keep reading it to the Mexican Hat Dance, specifically the rendition from The Animaniacs bit. Some see Rossini, I see WB cartoons.

It's not like our first referent for the Rossini opera isn't the Bugs Bunny bit where he feuds with the opera singer.

I have to check when I get to work tomorrow, but this may be the night of my company holiday party. If it's not, The Boyfriend and I will be there.

Come on, kids! One person does not a trivia team make. Do you really expect me to forget the name of the first black dude in space all by myself?
posted by phunniemee at 6:27 AM on December 5, 2011

Just one month more, and I'll be able to attend these.
posted by Iridic at 7:51 AM on December 5, 2011

I guess I should attend my own event, huh.
posted by Evilspork at 6:39 PM on December 5, 2011

And what, Iridic, are you underage?
posted by Evilspork at 6:40 PM on December 5, 2011

Nope. I just have a class on Thursdays from 6 to 10. I'll be done with it after the 15th.
posted by Iridic at 8:37 PM on December 5, 2011

Well, I do really like trivia...maybe I'll actually attend a meetup again.
posted by mismatched at 7:57 AM on December 6, 2011

Gotcha, hope to see you then!

Aww I hate to miss this two months in a row, but that's the night of our company holiday party.
posted by Zaximus at 10:00 PM on December 6, 2011

December is just impossible. It's only the 7th and I've already missed three events from being either double-booked or accidentally asleep at 8:30pm.
posted by crush-onastick at 7:27 AM on December 7, 2011

It's official - the 15th is my company holiday party. Boo.

If it turns out that rescheduling this month's trivia is best, The Boyfriend and I are available the 22nd. We could also pick another venue for a different night of the week.

Wanna try another Pequods meetup for that week? I just called them and the guy who knows if we can do a split party of unlimited beer and not-unlimited beer is out until tomorrow, but it seemed like it would be OK.

Does the 20th work for Pequod's for anyone (else)?
posted by crush-onastick at 10:59 AM on December 7, 2011

I'd be a probably for the 20th at Pequod's. In theory, that's the day after my steroid shot and I should be 100%.
posted by youngergirl44 at 1:51 PM on December 7, 2011

See, I work from home on Wednesdays, which makes Tuesday nights attractive for going out. Also, that prior weekend, I'm conducting an international humanitarian law workshop, so I'm not available--really--immediately prior to that. But we've got a thread open for Pequod's.

Also, yg44, sorry you're having such woes. Hope the Boy is treating you right.
posted by crush-onastick at 2:08 PM on December 7, 2011

Hey, people. Are we doing this?
posted by phunniemee at 10:45 AM on December 13, 2011

Would we not be?
posted by Evilspork at 7:40 PM on December 13, 2011

...oh, I see what you mean.
posted by Evilspork at 7:41 PM on December 13, 2011

Evilspork: what time are you going to get there, roughly?
posted by phunniemee at 1:53 PM on December 15, 2011

8ish, do you want me to precede you there so you don't get spooked again? :P
posted by Evilspork at 4:00 PM on December 15, 2011

Nah, I'll show up around 8ish. haha
posted by phunniemee at 4:12 PM on December 15, 2011

Well that went well.
posted by Evilspork at 10:32 PM on December 15, 2011

Did it really? I'm sad that I missed it, but had a fun time at the Christmas party last night.
posted by youngergirl44 at 1:28 PM on December 16, 2011

No, not really.
posted by Evilspork at 6:02 PM on December 16, 2011

Things were going great until the second act, when our answers turned into a decreasingly coherent series of your mom jokes.

Could have used an assist. :) Maybe next time.
posted by phunniemee at 12:27 PM on December 17, 2011

Probably didn't help that I was also decreasingly coherent.
