Okay. Then we can lie in wait for Jesse at Level Optical and beat him up and steal his contacts.

Hey speaking of... nothing, actually, I took the elevator to the train platform this morning and I stepped in behind a guy who got on and stood in front of the buttons, and the door closed and we didn't go anywhere because... he didn't push the button for the platform. I mean.

Also, the 2012 Chicago Opera Theater season is amazing - Philip Glass, Astor Piazzolla, and Verdi - http://www.chicagooperatheater.org/2013-season/.

N/A that was a lovely lunch and the rest of you are suckers for missing it. Also I'm sorry if I abruptly walked away from you, but I really needed some blush. BLUSH EMERGENCY.

I drove down Wabash to see if I could find a quick parking spot to come up and surprise you but no luck.

I had to drive my boss' car somewhere, which is why I couldn't make it to lunch.

Jeff, I've noticed that place and I was interested but also I was a little annoyed at the fact that they call it "peasant food."

Remember that horrible clusterfuck in the "shallow pedantic complaints that drive you crazy" thread re the trend of "peasant" and "slow" food?

Also, I'm not a fan of offal. Except sweetmeats.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Friday, 4 May 2012 19:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oops, I meant sweetbreads.

I haven't had fried gizzards since I was a kid. I used to love them.

I don't know what it says about me that the most appealing thing on that menu right now is the beet flatbread. It probably says that I just read "pickled lamb tongue flatbread" and something in my brain shut down.

I was going to try and meet up with you guys, but thanks to the goddamn Columbia College Urban Art Fair it took me about three times as long as usual to walk up Wabash. Fucking art students.

Important consideration.

Jeff, Friday, 4 May 2012 21:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

To stand up and drink water, iirc.

heated debate over derpy hooves (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 4 May 2012 21:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm having a drink with The Good Emily at an alternate, undisclosed location but then I will be joining J3ff.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Friday, 4 May 2012 21:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I will not be there b/c I have other plans.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Friday, 4 May 2012 21:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

g-d I wish I worked in the loop

and did not have a dog that would pee all over the floor if I did not go home immediately and let him out

actually I don't wish that, it's just inconvenient sometimes

Silky Slim (dan m), Friday, 4 May 2012 21:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think I just may do that. What time will you guys be there? I have to finish up some stuff here and journey up from the South Loop.

heated debate over derpy hooves (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 4 May 2012 21:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wish I worked in the loop too.

and the peasantry looks pretty awesome.

I'll be there a little later bc of my previous engagement. I don't remember when Jeff gets off work so I'll just let him answer for himself.

Jeff, Friday, 4 May 2012 21:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ok this place is cool. Got a seat for Jenny, jvc, and one empty. Who wants the empty seat?????

Jeff, Friday, 4 May 2012 22:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

He's a good looking white man with a beard. IIRC he's wearing a blue shirt.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Friday, 4 May 2012 22:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

There are only 3 ppl here so far. I'm the one that is alone. And I have a big box sitting beside me.

Jeff, Friday, 4 May 2012 22:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

okay

heated debate over derpy hooves (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 4 May 2012 22:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ok more people here but I still am the only one with a box beside me.

Jeff, Friday, 4 May 2012 22:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Man please stop saying big box bc the temptation for a mean joke is growing too strong.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Friday, 4 May 2012 23:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was just at Macy's.

If this lag time remains steady I will be at watershed at 11:00 tonight.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Friday, 4 May 2012 23:17 (2 years ago) Permalink
