The Cardinals' season is over and there is little to warm our spirits during these bitterly cold upcoming months, other than the glint of hope that we sign Jason Heyward soon.
But, lo! I have something else you can look forward to in these sad and lonely times: the annual VEB Winter Meetup. "But is this going to be one of those Monday meetups like last year? I can't go to those, AYVSI!" Never fear, there is a weekend meetup this year. "But I like the Monday meetup, AYVSI! I enjoy getting crunk when I have to work the next day." Well, guess what, readers? This year, there will be TWO meetups. Come to one! Come to the other! COME TO BOTH AND HAVE YOUR MIND BLOWN WITH ALL THE FUN. These meetups will have everything: hotdog enthusiasts, satin jackets, a playlist of rare Mountain Goats B-sides, and look - is that Randal Grichuk and Seth Maness? No, it's a guy barfing on some dude riding around on a PhunkeeDuck.
WHEN IS THIS HAPPENING, AYVSI? Meetup #1 will be on Saturday, December 5th at 7:30 pm. Meetup #2 will be on Monday, December 21st at 7:00 pm.
WHERE IS THIS HAPPENING, AYVSI? Meetup #1 will be at Perennial Artisan Ales, located at 8125 Michigan Avenue. Meetup #2 will be at Heavy Riff Brewing Company, located at 6413 Clayton Avenue.*** These locations are subject to being flipped if Perennial does holiday week hours like last year.
WHY HAVEN'T WE SIGNED JASON HEYWARD YET, AYVSI? Why, indeed.
Any further details will be in comments. I'll post a final updates as the date(s) approaches. Hope to see you there!
