The next monthly Chicago, noncabal, meet-up should be this Wednesday, even though the Beard has not spoken, right?

I can't actually be there because I have a philanthropy board meeting. But I wouldn't want that to stand in the way of your fun.

Billy Goat, 6:30pm, Wednesday the 4th. Someone should bring Jell-o.

Aw, I think he meant noncabalS. So as long as you show up first, you can come.

I'll probably be there.

A swarm of fruit fly researchers (and associates, like me) will be in Chicago for (I kid you not!) the 50th annual Drosophila meeting! Wooo!

But... the keynote speech starts at 7. Bummer. I almost made a meet-up.


*kicks can*

Nikita: clearly, you've never been to the Billy Goat. They should host the conference there. (i keed)

I will be there for at least long enough to have a delicious and unhealthy sammich, depending on how mean work is being tomorrow.

(Said sammich will have steak on it because I am a gluttonous heretic.)

Keynote speeches usually suck. Just sayin'.

I think I'm there, it's been a while since I've seen you wackadoos.

Hey NakitaNakita, my wife is going to that meeting. Keep her honest for me, okay?

I will gladly fly from NYC to my beloved Chicago if a team of drosophiliasts will counsel me on eradicating fruit flies from my kitchen in the summer.

Ok, I'm definitely in. I'll be there early (5:30ish) if anyone else wants to stop by.

I'm on my way down. Whee!

Hooray! Good times. Pics posted. No pics of sparkletone, because he's a weenie. A WEENIE.

No pics of sparkletone

Which is how it should be.

because he's a weenie. A WEENIE.

This, I cannot deny.

It's a good thing your beard is not a beard of wrath? But a friendly beard?

The Beard has no foes, no friends, only followers.

And hangers-on!

(I swear, I'll come to one of these someday. We're probably moving to Ravenswood in August, which will make it easier. Still, hopefully sometime before then/)

Really sorry I missed the meetup guys... I'll try to be at the next one.
