First Wednesday is Upon Us

First, we meet at the Original Billy Goat Tavern. Then we decamp for shenanigans. You should join us because the world is a terrible place, but the Goat is familiar and the Chicago Metahounds are the best folks around. [more inside]

Let's get our act together and go, at the usual time, to the greatest of all taverns! (The Billy Goat.)

This is a Goat post. What happens post-Goat now? I don't even know how life works anymore in this new non-amphibian world.

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]

Quite possibly the end of an era

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]

August: Goat County

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]

May Goatup!

Time for our regularly scheduled monthly meetup at the Billy Goat, plus a very important PSA: Mother's Day is the Sunday after this meetup! If you're at this meetup and haven't figured something out yet, you're setting yourself up for failure. Don't let it happen to you. [more inside]

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]

August: Goat County

(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

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]

GOATENATING THE COUNTRYSIDE

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.

Same Goat time, same Goat location. We will also honor the closing of the Bizarro Goat. And THAT is why, you DON'T OFFER FRIES.

March Goating--Pre-shearing party

I keep losing track of when the March Goating is. It should be next week, but for the leap year thing, it's the week after. So I'm putting it here, to keep me from forgetting. Perhaps it will help someone else. In the interests of helping others, we'll meet instead at the Grafton Pub, in Lincoln Square, where misskaz is guest bartending from 6pm-9pm to raise money for the shearing of her goat head for charity.

Do we have a goat for August 3rd?

There's no post for the (I assume) August 3rd Goat meet-up. Of course, I'm just wondering, since I've never actually made it to one....

Monthly Goat.

Tiny Beers, cheeseborgers, possibly springlike weather. What has everyone been up to since last month? Meet us at the usual place, at the usual time, and listen to the usual stories. It will be fun! No, really. It usually is! The question is: "What are you doing to ensure it stays that way?" That's what I thought; see you there.
