First Wednesday: November Vote for the Goat
After a few months of trying elsewhere, we're returning to the Billy Goat for this first Wednesday because 3 years ago we were here for the Cubs winning the World Series and also we haven't found a better permanent place. I'll be there after work around 6 and we'll be there for a few hours probably and then I'm planning on heading up to Carol's Pub for karaoke and burgers. [more inside]

One World, First Wednesday, One Love (plus 20th Anniversary planning)
It's World Environmental Day and also Arbor Day in New Zealand, so since we can't go plant some trees there sadly, let's drown our sorrows for fellowship, beers tiny and otherwise, and hopefully Wheel of Fortune. I'm also commandeering this time to discuss what Chicago will be doing for Metafilter's 20th anniversary in July. Eventually, we'll dismiss to karaoke if the last ~10 years are anything to go by.

A-Goating We Shall Go
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.
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]
Post Turkey Glut Goat
December Chicago meetup! [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]
