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]
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.
Assuming we all make it through to the other side of the holidays, the First Wednesday of the Month (and, indeed, of the new year itself) is January 2. Join us at the Goat for tinybeers and random whiskeys and sandwiches of various types topped with fried eggs.
So, next Wednesday is March 2, which means your friendly neighborhood TINCC* requests the honor of your presence at the Billy Goat Tavern under Michigan Avenue. [more inside]
