May the Goat Be With You

Episode XCVI (or so) THE SAME OLD GOAT It was a dark time for the Cabal* . Although the Trump Tower can be ignored, continued media coverage of the election has driven the rebels underground to a place with no fries but some Wheel of Fortune with any luck... [more inside]

taoG ylliB|Billy Goat

On behalf of the Chicago Chapter of the Cabal*, I repudiate the current rumor that there is "a rampant pro-billy goat prejudice" on Metafilter. Mr. quidnunc's allegations are scurrilous, pernicious, libelous, and, what's more, categorically untrue, and I reject them with the utmost strenulosity.

That bit of business concluded, I'm pleased to announce our seventieth or so monthly meetup, to be held on the first Wednesday of March at the famous Billy Goat Tavern! [more inside]

Goat Song

Goat Song : Chicago is the story of a year in the life of a group of mefites who abandoned their one-bedroom apartments in Chicago to live under Michigan Avenue raise Billy Goats. In poetic, reverent detail, EvilSpork talks of our ancient relationship to the land and our gradual alienation from the Billy Goats that feed us. His fascinating account traces his journey of the choosing of the billy goat, and learning how to breed, brew, and curse the cubs with them. [more inside]

See You Next Week--April Goatening

As the trickster sprite eamondaly threw me out of a cab last night, he rather cheerfully noted "See you next week!" which, of course, is true. Next week is the April Goatening. You should come.

January TINCC

So, folks, are we meeting up on January the 5th at the Goat, or will we all be a) too cold; b) too out of town; c) too tired from skiing; d) too emptied of holiday cheer to give it a try?

Billy Goat Brouhaha

You know it'll be at the Billy Goat and that there will be tiny beers, Horny Goats, and cheeseborgers. But will we end up at karaoke? Will elusive newbies show up? Will I be incredibly hungover the next day? The mystery cannot be solved unless you attend! [more inside]
