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]
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]
Hey, First Wednesday is the first of July, so use your rent money to join us at the Billy Goat (430 North Michigan Avenue) and then maybe the Blue Frog . (676 N LaSalle) * [more inside]
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?
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]
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]
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]
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.
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]
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.
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?
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.
