Sorry I couldn't make it, guys. Looks like you had fun without me, though.

Looks like great fun, we have to do even better in London next time :) And I love the eyes as well :)

Great beer, great company, and drawing too! We were small in numbers, but made up for it in enthusiasm. And the conversation topics were as plentiful and erratic as a typical day in MeFi. Thanks for bringing the camera Kev.

And I love Chicago! Wish I could have been there (garlic mayo? baklava? mmmm....).

Dear Chicago Mefi,

Looks like it was a great meet-up. Wonderful drawings and photos, fun like a Saturday In The Park. You're the Inspiration. Colour My World. Make Me Smile. I wish it was Just You 'N' Me.

I thought there would be twenty five or six people there, but it looks like there were only four.

However, I do feel oddly compelled by the power of the muttonchop.

I thought the beer menu was part of kenko's t-shirt for the first half of the photos.

Thanks Kenko, Slack-a-gogo and Mrs Pants. It was a blast watching Mrs Pants whip out her little masterpieces and getting to meet you all. My only regret is that I look sooooo creepy in some of those pics. Need to work on that smirk.

Chicago definately elevates the shoutout to an art form.

(Thanks, kenko!)

New rule: everyone must wear funny hats at the next meetup.

I am so honored by the shoutout. I hope mrs. pants can draw the model for my next tattoo.

Apparently, Chicago is one of the last places you can still smoke indoors.

Whine, whine, whine.

Kay asked if we could have that drawing of fiona. Did you guys save it?
posted by mathowie (staff) at 11:30 AM on August 11, 2005


I think we left everything on the table when we left...
posted by mrs.pants at 11:33 AM on August 11, 2005


I sure hope so. I know I didn't grab any of them before I left. Mrs Pants, I'm almost positive, did.

You may not have gotten a shoutout, but you were mentioned in the "initially incorrect guessing of a MeFite's gender based on their username" discussion. That has to count for something.

And now that I think about it, you did get a shoutout.
posted by Slack-a-gogo at 12:10 PM on August 11, 2005


mrs.pants, you & your artwork are both great - I like your style! Looks like it was a fun night, nice group of people ... and thanks for the shout-out, Slack-a-gogo ... but I must say that I am rather crestfallen that you didn't wear one of those wicked cool western shirts again, KevinSkomsvold. I will have to pass the cool shirt baton to kenko this time.

Way to represent the bag hags with panache, mrs. pants. And all of you look like a hell of a lot of fun to have a drink with!

It looks like we left them there. FWIW Matt, I uploaded the pic in it's original size so it's pretty high quality. Feel free to snag it if you want.

Thanks for the shout-out! My first ever, yo. Kenko, see you in September!

Belated thanks for the shoutout, Kevin! And beware -- I might be back in chicago one of these days soon. So if you see someone lurking outside your house....
