Pub Crawl the Friday Before the Meet Up?

I'll bet everyone is excited for the upcoming meet up (Two weeks! Holy crap!)! Jess and I thought it would be fun to do a pub crawl on Friday the 16th before the kickball game. We would gather up a list of the staff's favorite places along with their favorite drinks, and then take a walk (or crawl) in their shoes.


If you think you would like to join in on the fun, please sign up!


And staffers, if you have any suggestions for good places to go that are within walking distance of the kickball game, please let us know!


Sign Me Up!

Jeff, you won't be busy setting stuff up? Aren't you supposed to be a responsible adult now or something?

I still haven't been there yet but have heard good things about BellyQ which is right next to the park. They have fancy cocktails and good beers and a nice little outdoor seating area. Could be a great place to end the crawl.

You mention beer and all of the staff comes out of hiding.

umm..this is hard. all my favs are not in the hood, but there's a lot of cool places in the west loop!

-Haymarket (they make their own brews that are pretty tasty)

-Crossroads (it's right up the street from Threadless and it's an official blackhawks bar lol)

-Au Cheval (my personal west loop fav. GREAT beer selection and probably the best burger in the city of chicago)

i'm going to think of more!!!

Priscilla always has the best* ideas

Thanks for all the suggestions, you guys! I'll have to go through all of them and see how close they are to each other. Hopefully one of the staffers can help lead us around :-)

+1 to Twisted Spoke, Crossroads and Haymarket.

  • Beer Bistro has okay food, but has a decent selection of beers.
  • Market has an okay selection of beers and wouldn't let Ross on the roof in a tank-top.
  • Bottom Lounge has good food and a good beer selection (we had the after-party there last year... and maybe the year before?)

Yes.

Hello.

I am in.

I will drink you all under the table.

And by that I mean, I will tape pictures of your faces to pint glasses and quietly sip from them under a table by myself while crying.

It looks like you all might be falling down drunk before this even starts, but there's also an event at the Art Institute that night where they're announcing the winner of our impressionism challenge. http://www.artic.edu/event/after-dark-6

Is there an official meet time for this yet? I have a dentist appointment that day and want to be sure I can make it before all the painkillers wear off.

valorandvellum
valorandvellum profile pic Alumni

2-3 might be a good time to meet.

Twiggyhall

Oh and I lied - my friend Monica won't be there during this part after all cause her and mezoface are gonna be off getting tattoo'd like a couple-a sailors

so perrypods will have to be extra rowdy in her honor

valorandvellum
valorandvellum profile pic Alumni

I'm thinking it will be best to meet at 3pm outside the Threadless warehouse, but will confirm this.

Twiggyhall

Awesome!!

How "official" is that list up there, Miss Priscilla? Do we need to keep the group to a certain number or anything?

I know Perry (BeanePod) wants to join in and I didn't see his name added yet so just wanna make sure he gets in on the drunken shenannies :)

valorandvellum
valorandvellum profile pic Alumni

Nahhh, anybody can join. That list was just for us to make sure there was interest in doing this.

Twiggyhall

Ahhh, got it :) thanks, lady!

Can't wait to see your gorgeous face!!! 2 days!!!!!! :D
