At least I moved to the right city

And I sure as hell ain't moving to Houston or Detroit.

Go Beers! I mean, Bears!

The Wingman Cometh.

I am sipping a beer, the first in two - 3 weeks (been sick, ya know). I have just mopped the floor, scrubbed the sinks, went all Hazmat on the toilet, and vacuumed the rugs (well, as much as I could do until the fucker started smoking. Instead of sweet Lilac, my apartment current smells of burnt rubber and melted steel).

"Mac, what's up with the uncharacteristic cleaning binge?" you may ask? (And, beeyatch, you know it's love when I clean the bathroom!!!)

As mentioned before, my last and bestest Wing man is tying the knot (clipping his wings?) in Scotland (I think that's somewhere east of New York?). However, before the falcon gets his claw ball 'n' chained, we Chicagoans are blessed with his presence for the weekend.

Will this be the Final Lost Weekend (with or without extension?) Or merely a mournful tippling of amber and black doubles and pints, a wake of sorts, the Death of a Single Man?

Dinner eaten both in and out (and in again). Dive bars dived into. Laughs laughed. Old friends will trade stories and lies of yore, and new friends met with smiles (and judgement...ha ha!). Pins will be toppled. All-in-all, much fun shall be had by all.

The cherry on top will be the kidnapping on Sunday, when we refuse to let him return to the soggy north of the U.K.

If you see us out, buy us a drink or pony-up for bail, yo!

Steadily, heavily drinking, but not much fun.

What has Mac been drinking this past week or so, you ask?

Gallons of this and that.

Cheers, and bottoms up!

Your Saturday Plans are here:

My friend Mike's side project Good Stuff House will be playing this Saturday night (the 6th) at Las Manos Gallery in Andersonville.
For this show Scott Tuma will be playing pump organ, Matt will be on guitar and Mike'll be on "invented" instruments (WTF?).

In visual addition, his kick-ass photography is also on display (part of a group nocturnal urban landscapes show).

[Update: 9:44 p.m.-- Mike and his friend NY Don are making a movie right now that will be shown in backdrop during the set. The excitement mounts and mounts!]

8 p.m.
Las Manos Gallery
5220 N. Clark Street (1/2 block north of Foster)

8pm Number None
9pm Good Stuff House

Come overwhelm your senses, or hangout before you go to Simon's (#210) and buy us a beer!

I'm bored

Anyone going out tonight?

Post in comments, and maybe I'll meet you there.

[Update: 10:45 p.m.-- screw it, I'm going to Gallaghers (#264)...why not, right?)
