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]

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]

Bingo!

So garlic and I have been tossing around the idea of a bingo meetup at the Blue Frog. They do it every Monday night, although I'm not sure what time it starts. How about a Monday in September (after Labor Day)?

So, Miko's in town.

Miko popped into the picnic thread to say she'd be here July 23-28 and is free in the evening while she's here (except on Sunday and Monday). Like most conference-goers, she's staying Loopish. Since the monthly Goat is one week later, I propose a different spot. But where? There's the conundrum. We have decided upon Ten Cat in Lakeview. [more inside]
