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]
Do you remember the second night in September? Only Blue Frog and Goat, remember the meetup we share today. ba dee yaaa goating in September ba dee yaa say that you remember... [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]
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.
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.
The first Wednesday of February is fast approaching. LET'S DO THIS. Oh and hey guys by the way look what I found. [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]
December Chicago meetup! [more inside]
I have a great idea! Let's get together at the classic Chicago bar, the Billy Goat Tavern! [more inside]
(Coming up on time, so I figured I go ahead and post this before people started getting anxious.) This is our monthly Chicago meetup as the Billy Goat for those who don't yet know that this is what this is. You should definitely come to this if you did not already know this. It is good. (You should also come if you have already attended and did know this, but I'm not as worried about making you feel comfortable.) [more inside]
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]
OMG! It's my first goat/frog IRL post! [more inside]
October 3rd is both the first Wednesday in October (GOATUP!) and the first presidential debate of the season. [more inside]
September has begun (or will have had begun when this meetup has happened) and thus it is time for a billy goat tavern meetup followed by the totally optional (and totally awesome) karaoking at the blue frog.
And they're like,
yeah, it's ok...I mean, there are better places to get a burger, but this'll do just fine it's better than yours. [more inside]
