MeFi/myopenbar Chicago meetup? July 16, 2008 9:48 AM   Subscribe

shakespherian posted this (imo) great fpp about, suggesting coordination with MeFi meetups. I don't have a plug-in solution, but wondering when you full-time Chicagoans are thinking about a next meetup, so an ex-pat (ex-paddy?) might do some planning?

fwiw, I'll be arriving in Chicago 7/30 for an overnight, then back there on 8/4, 8/5...but at this point, I'm just asking. I realize that the BGT is somewhat sacred as the gathering point, but as the party moves maybe we Chicagoans can show myopenbar why advertising open bars in Chicago runs counter to for-profit endeavors.

I'm not sure I understand. We should show who what, now?

*misskaz translates:

Beelzbubba will be in town 7/30 and back on 8/4-8/5. He/she wants a meetup. He/she realizes that the Billy Goat Tavern (BGT) is our sacred meetup stop but perhaps can suggest where the party moves later on, as it is wont to do. He/she makes witty remark about what drunkards we are and how we'll drink one of these open bar places right out of business, that'll show 'em.

Or something.

Ah. July 30 is a Wednesday. I can do Wednesdays.

It's never too soon for another drunken brawl meetup.

If he doesn't know where they are, there's some at my house that need doing.

I'm sensing that there's not much home-town drive for a July 30 meet up. And if you knew me like I know me, you surely won't rely on me organizing one from miles and miles away.

so, if the ball gets rolling, I'll be interested. If it doesn't I'll keep my eyes open for a next time.
