Ok This is the last weekend that I have to hang out in Chicago for the next month and a half. I haven't hung with Chicago folks in a while so I intend to make the most of it.

My sister is going to bring me up to Chicago on Wednesday.

sarpo is going to be in town on Wednesday and desires to just hang out at a dive bar or some such thing.

duck2ducks will be appearing in Boomstick on Friday and Saturday and I really want to see that.

boannan will be done with the bar as of Wednesday night.

cassiopia and I are going go to to Bristol Renaissance Faire on Sunday. We want company.

Even though I have no plans yet and few of these people know I'm planning on coming up, this long-weekend is going to rock.

I must warn, however, that I MUST get some work done on Thursday and Friday. So I'll be plopping myself down in front of someone's broadband with my laptop and my WAP for several hours during the day on those days. It won't be ALL party.

if you go to bristol faire, you must see some shows with friends of mine in them:

Moonie the magnificent (my friend phil johnson)
BROON (my dear friend brian howard)
and the one-man Hamlet show. (my ex-housemate, jeff mclane)

the only edible food there is guinness. i'm warning you now.

All the food is non-edible? I'm suprised. I have not been to a Ren Faire yet that has had bad food.
Is the food bad or just not vegetarian?
I'm not a vegetarian so if everything has meat I can deal.

it's not that the food is horrid. it's that bristol faire seems to have an abnormally high percentage of very rich food. which combined with the heat and humidity = inedible. i just can't figure out why a faire set in a very humid environment during the height of summer doesn't offer lighter food. maybe they've changed their food vendors since i was last there in 2002.

but then, that's my perspective as someone who's worked faire since 1991, and spends the day at faire in a 30-pound costume. :) you may well be able to handle the rich food if you wear a tank top and shorts and drink more water than you think you'll need. :)

Ah, I don't usually have issues eating if I'm hungry as long as I am not too overheated. I tend towards pesant garb for a day at the fair to avoid that.

The last few years I have been going to the OH Ren fair in October. Lovely crisp fall weather and the bread bowl with stew is delightful then. I try to avoid the Faire in the height of summer becasue I do tend to overheat easily but I've learned to cope.

I have no idea what I'll be up for Wednesday night (I'll probably be asleep, I might be super hyper) so call my cell phone if you want to hang out (it's still the California number). I don't have your cell phone number.

Jason and I are totally into seeing Boomstick this weekend; he'll be there if he's not closing at work. I hope to be there either way. I think uss_hairball and eee1313 might also be interested in seeing it this weekend. I'd love to go to a Ren Faire on Sunday (Jason's super excited about that and hoping he doesn't have to work that day).

I have yet to see Boomstick. I am in the midst of getting one of my hearing aids repaired (something that's either going to be really easy, or really difficult), and if that comes of as hoped, I'd be up for that axxion. I've been meaning to see it before the end of the run, and it'd be lovely to see it with a group of people I know. Friends with, even!
