Chicago bloggers get drunk

Chicago bloggers drank their faces off at Quartino and Streeters last night!

Big group. I didn't get enough pictures of everyone though because I suck.

Someone's awkward.

Second liter of wine.

Can't wait for glasses.

Hi ladies!


It's beer pong time.

The beer pong veteran.

Another expert.

And THIS is where the night takes a hilarious yet creepy turn... Note the scary man.

Mr. Creeptastic notices our group.

Little Miss Awkward encourages him.


And now you're in for a treat. Here are 10 seconds of your life that you'll never get back. You're welcome.

After that song, Mr. Creepers started making his way over to me. I think I drew attention to myself with my picture-taking and loud, creeped-out cackling. Ang immediately grabbed me, pulled me to the other side of her and glared at the man.

"Oh, no, no, no," she chided him. "MARRIED. NO."

"Happily married?" he asked me.

"YES." I said.

Ang again, "NO, NO, NO. GO."

Man persists, "Any kids?"

"One on the way -- cheers!" I said, raising my beer like a sloppy co-ed.

That did it. He left. No one likes a fetal alcohol syndrome joke.

All in all, a good night. :-)

Gotta love random creepsters.

Bloggers can be surprisingly attractive! Given that we, you know, hide behind a computer screen.

I tried to erase that image from my head. I know, I know I didn't have to press play but my curiosity took over.

Erin said...

Awesome. It was great to meet you!

erin said...

Rachel said...

I saw that guy dancing with her as I was leaving! I remember thinking;
"Wow that guy is creepy. Hope he doesn't rape her....well gotta go!"

Bayjb said...

Great to finally meet you on Friday! Next time we'll talk more. But you can never go wrong with beer pong.

Alexa said...

that video is exactly why i love egging on random creepies.

Jamie said...

Oh my gosh. I left before creepo dude made his rounds obviously.

Echoing everyone else's comment but it was nice meeting you!

d said...

totally classic. i just remember him staring at one of those two ladies while she poured beer, for a very long uncomfortable spell while she acted like he wasn't ten inches from her face.

great to meet you and your killer hubby, and we all need to eat lunch PRONTO.

Overcoat: Some people are just creepster magnets, huh?

Marie: I know, what a trainwreck!

Erin: It was great to meet you too!

Erin: Oh, yeah, I was stealth. I was so sad that I missed the guy's much, much funnier dance moves, but this one still showcased the awkwardness.

Ang: Four hours sounds about right.

Lovesfool: Yes, yes you are. I love it.

Rachel: Hahaha. He didn't stay too long after that. We were safe. Plus, I'm sure D coulda taken him, right?

Bayjb: Absolutely!

Alexa: It's true, it's often pays off -- especially for those of us who like to exploit these types of things on the Internet...

Jamie: It was good to finally meet you too. :-)

D: YES, we'll set something up for after Thanksgiving.
