Chicago Party: Birthday Blowout Bash Bonanza/Egg Rave

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that there will be a super secret birthday party in Chicago this weekend!

If you haven’t heard yet, let me tell you a little bit about this party.

boot

It will be Saturday night. It will be in Chicago. It will be my mofo birthday! I will be wearing the boots pictured to the right.

There will be Skepchicks. That’s right. Several of us! It will be not only me, but also Masala Skeptic, in from Hawtlanta, and Carr2d2, of Sunday morning radio fame, in from Minnesota.

So you’re going to be there, right? Right!

Oh wait… You’re going to need your egg and your password if you want more information. (If you’ve forgotten the password, go here. I’ll wait.)

[waiting….]

Wow! That is a FINE looking egg you have there, reader. Just look after the jump for the details.

Where:

Matisse

674 W Diversey Pkwy

Chicago (here’s a map)

When:

Saturday, June 13

8:00PM

Why:

Because it’s my birthday and I just bought seriously hawt boots. Because I love you. Because you love Maria and Carrie. Because it’s Saturday. Because you want something even better than Blues Fest.

Parking:

If you’re going to drive, there is a paid lot across the street or you can try and find some street parking… don’t get your hopes up. But really, take the train or the bus… there will be Tang, and you shouldn’t be driving after Tang.

And one more thing:

Be like Brenda and Brandon. Don’t be like Steve and Andrea.

  1. Chicago was always one of my favorite haunts when I lived in northern Indiana. Now that I’ve moved to New Orleans, Chi-town is entirely too far to drive for one bacchanal. Maybe if you promised to wear your new boots with your birthday suit …

    Happy Birthday anyway! :)

  2. Ooooooh, I just bought those boots, too! ‘Cept mine are black. I so, so, so want to visit Chicago but I am so, so, so poor.
    I hope you have a wonderful birthday! And when I do eventually make it to Chicago, I will be sure to be there with my 5″ heels on.
    Oh, and by the way, @danwest: if Elyse bought the same boots that I did, they are actually ridiculously comfortable, even if they do make one tower over ones husband…

  3. Damn, I want to go… alcohol, sexy boots, and witty boobs…

    Stupid geography.

    I guess I have no choice but to drunkenly toast your birthday at my saturday sailing bachanal, instead of Chicago. Huzzah!

  4. @Elexina: No problem with you towering over your husband from time to time, and these high-heeled sneekers do look comfortable. It was the orientation that caused me to wonder about hand-walking. How else could you keep the sole pointed north?

  5. I hope you have a great birthday, Elyse! I’ll hoist some Tang in your honor from the East Coast.

    Long gone are the days when I could jump on a flight for free and attend things like that…I’d love to put some faces with names sometime.
