Hey There's a First Wednesday Approaching

Join us after work at the original World Famous Billy Goat Tavern for tiny beers and food from the greasy grill. We're fun! We're friendly! Frankly. we're fantastic. Later in the evening, we'll meander over to Livewire Lounge for First Wednesday Karaoke with the incomparable Mary Mac. That's when you'll see how fantastic we truly are. There might be shenanigans in between. You can never be too sure.

Goats!

Oh hey, Wednesday is first Wednesday. So join us at the Original Billy Goat Tavern where we eat sandwiches, drink tiny beers, and talk about stuff and junk. Then possibly on an adventure to other places (I'm assuming, but have not confirmed, LiveWire Lounge for rockstar karaoke). We're friendly; you'd like us.

Man that Goat is Wired--1st Wednesday

First Wednesday is throwing us a curve ball for June. It's not next week, like you think it is, but the week after! Yes, Wednesday of the approaching week is only May 31. So don't try to meet up until a week from Wednesday, when it will be June 7. 5:30-6:00ish at the Original Billy Goat Tavern in the seedy underbelly of tourist-addled springtime Michigan Avenue.

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.

Nope, You Did Not Miss It!

Apparently, I am not the only person to think "oh, shit! GoatFrog is tonight!" but it's not. It's next week. And anyway, there is no Frog anymore. . . . . Oh, I made myself sad. But don't you be sad! You can still join us for First Wednesday! [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]

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?

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]

January Goatening

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]

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.
