eotvos memorial service details - May 13

Chicago area MeFites (and others): there will be a memorial service for eotvos (Erik Shirokoff) on Saturday May 13, 2023 both in person and over Zoom. Details can be found on this page. I am passing along this notification at the request of his friend Martin.

Don't Say We Did not Warn You

MeFiChi (TINCC*) will be celebrating the (totally not arbitrarily-designated) 10th Anniversary of our First Wednesdays at the Goat and (late lamented) Frog on the first Wednesday of October 2018. Please consider this your Save the Date. There will be an IRL as we get closer, but we know (oh how we know!) calendars are hard and we thought a head's up for those who need it might be a good idea.

Better late than never

I never got a chance to thank my fellow Chicago MeFites for going above and beyond the call of duty in celebrating MetaFilter's 15th Anniversary. Did you know we had 29 straight days of meetups in July? Here's just some of the stuff we did: [more inside]

Mythbuster museum exhibit takes off

Steak and Eggy-Weggs, Oh My Brothers

Pizza that ate Chicago

I know Chicago has meetups approximately every half-hour, but for reasons of convenience and terrible awkward crippling fear of people I've never made it to one. [more inside]

Chicago meet-ups not involving bars

Chicago's last meetup sounded great. I would totally have gone if I had known what the secret was. I would even have gone if I had just known the secret wasn't another bar, because Mefites generally sound like great people whom I'd like to meet in person. As someone who can't pass a card-check (and isn't such a fan of the whole loud-and-dark ambience anyway), can Chicago's next meet-up similarly have a portion that isn't drinks and dinner in a bar?

"One of you will betray me with a self link before the cock crows thrice"

Some time ago, I did a post about parodies of "The Last Supper". Little did I know at the time that the Greatest Spoof Ever would feature MetaFilter's Own Jesus H. Shatner (although in retrospect, it seems obvious). Ladies and Gentlemen, a masterpiece by leonardo pjern, "The Last Round" [more inside]
