faxes. foxes. faces. Many of us will be in for the long haul and stay through karaoke (which starts at 9:00 pm). Others will not. You choose your own adventure.
Screw it--Carol's has a really great $5 burger and craft beer specials on Wednesday. AND then Popup Karaoke starts later in the evening. Join us! Or don't. It's up to you, but we're charming, really. [more inside]
First Wednesday: November Vote for the Goat
After a few months of trying elsewhere, we're returning to the Billy Goat for this first Wednesday because 3 years ago we were here for the Cubs winning the World Series and also we haven't found a better permanent place. I'll be there after work around 6 and we'll be there for a few hours probably and then I'm planning on heading up to Carol's Pub for karaoke and burgers. [more inside]
#11 Busless Beer Crawl (Rescheduled)
Rescheduled after sickness & questionable weather caused an eleventh-hour cancellation of our originally planned event: We had so much fun going to all eleven stops of the #11 Bus Beer Explorer Passport in a single day in 2016 that we did it again the next year. We missed organizing one last year, and the #11 bus no longer exists, but we're going to recreate the crawl on foot or other methods of transportation for 2019. [more inside]
A First Wednesday Experiment
It's First Wednesday again already! We're going to mix things up a little this month and try a new location very close to our traditional location. Meet us at the Red Star Bar inside Whole Foods Streeterville (255 E. Grand) for food and drink and excellent companionship. [more inside]

Goating Is Easy, Calendars Are Hard!
The calendar has pulled that trick again where First Wednesday falls on the first of the month, which is...this week! That's very soon, but there's still time to make plans to join us at the Original Billy Goat Tavern for tiny beers and excellent company. Even if - especially if! - you haven't joined us before, we'd love to see you on Wednesday. [more inside]
LOCATION CHANGE--The Goat Blowed Up Real Good

Goat Goat Goat? Fr. Goat
The Goat is not yet reopened, but First Wednesday is next week. We will decamp to LiveWire for Metahound karaoke around 10, but where should we drunken first? We have agreed that Monk's Pub is a good place for the drunkening. Hope to see your faces there!

A-Goating We Shall Go
As is the other custom of our people, we gather at the Original Billy Goat Tavern, sip the tiny beers, quaff the tiny whiskeys, eat the beast (no fries). Then make the long journey to Live Wire, tip our bartenders generously and show each other the love. You know you want to.

Live Goat on a Wire

First Wednesday is Upon Us
First, we meet at the Original Billy Goat Tavern. Then we decamp for shenanigans. You should join us because the world is a terrible place, but the Goat is familiar and the Chicago Metahounds are the best folks around. [more inside]
This Hurts to Say: Last Goat-Frog is Upon Us
In the spirit of today's seriously crappy weather, I thought I'd take this moment to invite you to the very last possible Goat-Frog First Wednesday ever. The Goat endures, but the Frog closes mid-January. [more inside]
Calendars are Hard; Goating is Not.
I keep thinking the First Wednesday is this week. But because First Wednesday is instead next week, I am posting the regularly scheduled MefiChi meet-up. [more inside]

June, the Goatening
First Wednesday is next week. Join us at the Goat for food and tiny beers after work. Follow along when we decamp to the Frog (676 N LaSalle) for booze, awkward dancing and the finest karaoke you never sang. 2015 has been dialing the awesome way up and I hope you will help us keep the trend going. Seriously, folks, why are you not joining us?
New Year: Resolve to get some Goat-Frog in your life
Wednesday the 7th is the first Goat-Frog of 2015. You deserve some post-holiday shenanigans. Meet at the Goat under Michigan Avenue after work. Head over to the Frog for karaoke before 10. Bring your A-game.
Alternately known as "100 Days to Anvil of Bacon Crom". Same Goat time, same Goat place, followed by same Frog place, same Frog shenanigans. [more inside]
Goats & Frogs Next Week
Right? I'm reading this calendar correctly? First Wednesday in November is a week from today? Hopefully, cause I'll be Goat Frogging. You should join. [more inside]
You know the drill. [more inside]
Speaking of. . .GOAT FROG MoMu15
It's next week, folks. It sneaked up on me; don't let it sneak up on you. Join fellow MeFites in Chicago for our Month of Meetups celebrating MetaFilter's 15th anniversary EVERY! DAY! OF! JULY! [more inside]
A-Goating We Shall Go
The merry month of May, so frolic, so gay, and so green, so goat, so goat! Join us for our month meet-up and drunkening. 6ish, 7ish at the Original Billy Goat in the dark underbelly of Michigan Avenue, until we get restless and move on to the Frog. Or join us Frogside, 10ish.
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]
Last night we discussed having the January Goat on the SECOND Wednesday, rather than the first, owing to that being New Year's Day, and owing to Berlin's Bowie Ball on the 2nd. What say you all? You all seem to say the First Wednesday is the First Wednesday and None Shall Encumber its Celebration. So be it. [more inside]
It's October Already
Well, it will be October already by next Wednesday. You know the drill: The Original Goat, under Michigan Avenue. Tiny beers, tinier whiskeys, some sort of toy surprise. Then some of us making very bad decisions about how to conduct ourselves in public or when to call it a night. You should be there. You know who you are.
Something Something May Goat
Same Goat time, same Goat location. We will also honor the closing of the Bizarro Goat. And THAT is why, you DON'T OFFER FRIES.
So, Wednesday is April 4th, the first Wednesday in April. Shall we meet at the Goat as per usual?
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.
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?
The Monthly Drunkening approaches. On the one hand, there will be no reporters or random gawkers. On the other, we will be responsible for our own sizzle. I think we can handle it.
