Ok, I'm gonna be there from August 3 to August 6. Some of that time, I think, I'll be on my lonesome. So take me to get a polish or whatever it is.

Nice. Jim, Biggins, take me away. I've never been to your city before.

We have a show on Saturday, but there's a chance that I could come down for the day on Sunday.

I haven't responded to this because it's a terrible weekend for me; I have OTHER friends from NYC staying with me that I'll have to entertain. That said, keep me apprised of any plans. I may end up playing chauffeur with some hours to kill. When solid plans are made, I will do my best to pawn said friends off on my wife.

This thread was on the second page because we are boring

But anyway did I mention this thing to you guys? http://www.bubblycreekbarrelbrawl.com/

Essentially it's a keg-only homebrew contest my club is having later this month. There are 2 judging methods, a standard BJCP method--best of show will be brewed professionally at Haymarket Pub--and a "People's Choice" award which will yield some cash-equivalent type prizes like gift certificates, etc.  The People's Choice award will be voted on by the attendees.

It's a pretty neat idea for a homebrew contest, very different from the standard. The homebrewers obviously have more skin in the game since they're submitting a whole 5-gallon keg instead of a couple of bottles, but plenty of people have entered, which is exciting. There are plenty of tickets left, as I think they've avoided promoting the event heavily while they worked out some legal kinks but it looks like the event will go ahead now.

So if you know any Chicago-area homebrewers, let them know there are still a couple of spots left for beers to be entered. And if you are interested in trying a bunch of good homebrew and learning a bit about judging, definitely come to the event, I think it's going to be a good time.


Hey guys this thing is tomorrow, I haven't heard from my LPTJCHI folks if any of you are interested. Online ticket sales stop 1 hour before the event, and there will be no ticket sales at the door, so if any of you are coming I hope you see this and plan ahead accordingly. It's gonna be a great time, and Maria's just down the street (http://community-bar.com/) is going to have food trucks at some point, and also Pleasant House Bakery is just down the street (http://pleasanthousebakery.com/) and I'm pretty sure I could go to town on one of their meat pies after an afternoon of drinking.

I am around for part of Labor Day weekend, I think. Ironically, I believe I will have to work on Labor Day, a mere .7 miles from Haymarket Square.

Yeah, we decided to postpone. Any time y'all Chicago folks can think of when we should try to get down there? A weekend works best, obviously, and we've got to do it before the end of the year. It'd be nice to go for some specific event, though I just looked up the next couple months' worth of shows, and I didn't see many that I was all that stoked about, honestly. (I don't get that excited for shows anymore, is the thing.) So anything cool coming up? If not, that's okay too. Let's figure out a time to hang out!

Saturday, November 17th.  Tickets go on sale this Saturday. There are 2 sessions so you should coordinate which one you want to do. Also, new venue this year, should be pretty sweet. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/270798

That was really funny.  He walked in and we were all like "Heyyy" and he said "Were you guys just talking about how I wasn't going to show?"
