Visiting Chicago, anyone want to meet at Hopleaf?

I got a bunch of great responses to this question about what to do in Chicago, and one of the suggestions for things to do in Chicago is a meetup. So, does anyone want to meet up at Hopleaf on Saturday the 5th at around 7:30pm? [more inside]

September has begun (or will have had begun when this meetup has happened) and thus it is time for a billy goat tavern meetup followed by the totally optional (and totally awesome) karaoking at the blue frog.

Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!

I'm coming back to Chicago in June and can get together the 16th. Have you found a karaoke joint to replace the Bongo Room? I'm ok with going somewhere else for those who don't like singing.

March Goating--Pre-shearing party

I keep losing track of when the March Goating is. It should be next week, but for the leap year thing, it's the week after. So I'm putting it here, to keep me from forgetting. Perhaps it will help someone else. In the interests of helping others, we'll meet instead at the Grafton Pub, in Lincoln Square, where misskaz is guest bartending from 6pm-9pm to raise money for the shearing of her goat head for charity.

Do we have a goat for August 3rd?

There's no post for the (I assume) August 3rd Goat meet-up. Of course, I'm just wondering, since I've never actually made it to one....

So, Miko's in town.

Miko popped into the picnic thread to say she'd be here July 23-28 and is free in the evening while she's here (except on Sunday and Monday). Like most conference-goers, she's staying Loopish. Since the monthly Goat is one week later, I propose a different spot. But where? There's the conundrum. We have decided upon Ten Cat in Lakeview. [more inside]

Any Mefites going to ASCO ?

So, ASCO (American Society for Clinical Oncology) is coming up, and I'm curious to know if there are any other oncology-oriented Mefites (at all), and if so, if any are going to the meeting? It's a pretty big meeting -- certainly there's got to be a few, huh? A cancer-themed meetup? Could be interesting. We could, as a group, kibbitz as we roam the exhibit hall seeking out free trinkets and frozen yogurt treats.

Monthly Goat.

Tiny Beers, cheeseborgers, possibly springlike weather. What has everyone been up to since last month? Meet us at the usual place, at the usual time, and listen to the usual stories. It will be fun! No, really. It usually is! The question is: "What are you doing to ensure it stays that way?" That's what I thought; see you there.

Chicago Mid-month Pizza Party!

Turns out my Friday (this Friday, April 15th) is open, and though I'd like to check out jtron's show at Late Bar, there's zero chance of me doing that if I have the chance to go home and sit on my couch first. So: pizza party beforehand! There's a Giordano's half a mile south on Milwaukee though I'm open to other suggestions. Anyone interested?
