Tue December 20 at 8:00 PM, Pequod's Pizza
2207 N Clybourn Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Some people can't make it to the trivia meetup, want to try another Pequod's meetup for some time in the week of the 19th? They have party packags with unlimited pizza and either unlimited beer for $30 per person or unlimited not-beer for $15.

I like the idea of the 20th.

Man, I am SO ALL OVER THE PARTY PACKAGE. Infinite beer on a weeknight is dangerous, but infinite pizza is nice anytime. I could do the 19th or 20th, probably.

Preliminarily confirming for the 20th.
posted by Evilspork at 7:53 AM on December 8, 2011

Also remember that we need ten people for the special to work.

So how does the unlimited pizza work? It's whole pizzas? What size *whole* pizzas? Just curious, really. I'll a definite for the 20th, but a maybe for the 19th. Dunno about My Guy.

The waiter will present us with a pan-shaped portal to an alternate dimension made entirely of pizza. We simply eat all of the pizza in range of the portal, then shift the pan one foot to the right to fill it again.

I moved to the area a little while back, and would love to attend, but I am afraid...

Well, there's good reason to fear the bathroom Gandalf. And I wonder about the pan-shaped portal. Maybe that's something to be feared. But the meet-up? That's like fuzzy bunnies and kitten-shaped rainbows: a safe place of No Fear.

There's been a longstanding agreement that nobody is to ritually sacrifice anybody at meetups, including an hour before and after said meetup so everyone has enough time to flee in terror. Other than that, nothing to fear at all!

OK (^_^)

MightyNez -- I went to my first Billy Goat Mefi Meetup wednesday and totally didn't get killed, or accidentally kill anyone.

Plus I had fun chatting with internet peoples who were plenty friendly with another internet person.

Hmm.. I'd never actually considered the possibility of death by MeFites...
posted by MightyNez at 2:54 PM on December 13, 2011

I figger death by MeFite goes like this.

The person I need to talk to about parties was out last week and never called back, I'll try again tomorrow to see if we can maybe squeak in with under ten people, and if we can split beer/non-beer people. Is everyone still up for Pequod's if we can't get the party deal?
posted by Evilspork at 4:14 PM on December 13, 2011

I'm still a maybe depending on what happens with the pain doctor on the 19th - assuming that's when I'm getting stuck with a needle. If I get to go sooner, I will post.

Worst comes to worst, I will try and coerce The Boyfriend to go and bring me back pizza since I will have just been sedated and stuck with a needle and he's nice like that.

Has the date solidified?

Ooo, I'm out. I have to head down to Peoria that evening. Have fun!

I am getting my shot on the 19th (OMG I CANNOT WAIT!) and they keep saying I can do normal activities the next day. Eating pizza is a very normal activity for me, so I'm now a yes. NOM

Just spoke to the manager there, they're free Tuesday night. Since the unlimited beer package give us pitchers of beer and not individual drinks, though, we all have to be unlimited-beer or not-unlimited-beer. Price (with tip) is $20 each for no beer, $40 for beer. I told him if we only had a couple who were no beer we could each chip in for their extra tab.

Otherwise, being short of ten people is no problem, and they're wide open on Tuesday. Please to be reconfirming whether you're coming or not, so I can call him Tuesday and give him a better idea of how many are coming.

I'm almost certainly a no-beer.
posted by crush-onastick at 9:01 AM on December 19, 2011

I will be a no-show. Holiday season sure crept up fast.
posted by hydrophonic at 4:05 PM on December 19, 2011

No beer for me.
posted by MightyNez at 4:05 PM on December 19, 2011

So are we still on for this Mini Meetup and New Cabal Member Initiation Ritual? Looks like we can get away with a couple of small pizzas and a pitcher or two of beer. Yaaaay pizza!

I'm back-sliding into "maybe" territory, owing to several explosions in my work day. December is awesome, but it sucks for scheduling pure recreation
posted by crush-onastick at 11:02 AM on December 20, 2011

OK, I just called to reconfirm the reservation for no-beer and unlimited pizza, $20 each with tip. If we buy pitchers of beer they start at $14 for Bud light and up to $18 for stuff like Fat Tire and 312.

Bad news, guys - one of my uncles in Denver passed away and I'm flying out tonight for his memorial service tomorrow AM. I am now a no. :(

Ugh, sorry to hear that. Good luck with the holiday-themed TSA lines.

We're down to three confirmed, should we cancel?
posted by Evilspork at 1:33 PM on December 20, 2011

I feel like I jinxed it.
posted by MightyNez at 1:49 PM on December 20, 2011

Oh Amanda, that blows. I hope things go well for you travel-wise.

I would be in favor of cancelling this one in favor of making MightyNez's first meetup a more boisterious and celebratory occassion. Crush is right about December. Very hard to schedule.
posted by lholladay at 2:01 PM on December 20, 2011

Don't worry, that often happens with newbies. (and also weird mid-holiday-month meetups) You'll have a harder time breaking up the Goat meetup, which will be on the 4th.

Well, I'm calling it. If you show up you're on your own!
