In Pictures: Last Night's Chicagoist Reader Meetup

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 18, 2011 6:00PM

On behalf of the staff, I want to thank everyone who came out to our reader meetup at the Owl last night. I truly hope a fun time was had by everyone involved. We even got to see a rare appearance by BlueFairlane. (Trust me: he's a stand-up guy.)

Congratulations to readers Justin S. and Michael V. for each winning a remastered Pink Floyd catalog! (And to the guy who looked like he was going to whip my ass after Justin won the raffle, sorry.)

Big ups to Bridgeport Pasty Co. for bringing their electric space age bubble cart loaded with pies. I think Claudio the Tamale Man saw his future when he swung by last night. And we can't end this without name-checking Do312 and The Owl for hosting and helping to facilitate this. It was a blast.

We don't do these events as often as we'd like and we're going to try to do them more. We already have another one in the works, so stay tuned.
