10 Years of Goating It Up

So at some point, post-daylight savings but pre-New Year ten long years ago we settled into a comfortable routine of drinking tiny beers and eating greasy grill food on the First Wednesday of every month in one another's splendid company. This is the closest you're getting to an anniversary event. We hope you'll join us. There might be cake. Or swag. Or nothing at all. [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

We tried and failed to come up with an alternate plan R Bar Chicago (Renaldi's bar annex) for First Wednesday which happens to be this miserable shitheel of a country's birthday celebration.There is no Live Wire karaoke that night, but we think Shakers on Clark in Lakeview/Boystown will have karaoke for those who enjoy. If not, trivia starts at R Bar around 9 pm. [more inside]

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!

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.

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.

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]
