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]
The Blue Frog is shutting down in January and there's a pretty good chance the owners will have alienated the staff so much that everyone will throw in the towel before then, so this might be the last First Wednesday. If you've ever been, you'll want to join us this time. If you've never been, you must join us this time. [more inside]
First Wednesday of August is coming up quickly (though not as quickly as it might feel it should because there are 5 Wednesdays in July) Once the wait is over, let's go to the Billy Goat (430 North Michigan Avenue) and then maybe the Blue Frog . (676 N LaSalle) [more inside]
April fools! It's always the goat, then the frog. [more inside]
Billy Goat Tavern again? Yes. [more inside]
Meet at the Billy Goat Tavern. Drink tiny beers, eat a double with cheese, talk about / to the dapper bartender. Then around 9, make your way to the Blue Frog, and let the ambiance wash over you.
I definitely need one. You probably do, too. By now, you know the drill and if you are not participating, you should be ashamed of yourself. Tiny beers and foodstuffs from the grill (free pickles!) at the Original Billy Goat Tavern, lower Michigan Avenue, starting at around 6:00pm. Then adjournment to the Frog for increasingly poor decisions and much awesome.
Remember--the days of Goatening are numbered. Be there or be really sad you were not there. [more inside]
