FanGraphs Meetup: Chicago (Tonight!)

It’s time to hang out with your local favorite writers and talk baseball… when there’s no baseball on. (It actually makes for better conversations, because everything you say doesn’t trail off into ellipses when something happens on the field.)

I’m off to Minneapolis for the All-Star game and then on to Chicago for Pitchfork and BeerGraphs business, so we’ll take this show on the road.

First up is a co-sponsored event with Twins Daily, who was gracious enough to reserve a space and get two kegs dedicated to attendees. FanGraphs and BeerGraphs will supplement with free appetizers. We may add some writers to the list as we go along, but for now, you’ll see the following at the event for sure

Mason’s Restaurant and Barre, Minneapolis
Monday, July 14th, 4:30-6:30

Eno Sarris, FanGraphs and BeerGraphs

Next up, Chicago! The boring Thursday with no baseball shall not be boring again. We will gather, and we will drink great beers, and we will dream about the perfect roster together. FanGraphs and BeerGraphs will provide snacks.

    Sadly I cannot attend the Minneapolis meet-up because I’m working at the Home Run Derby, but I’m totally there if there’s an after-party of some sort.

    Hi all, I currently contribute for Razzball and I live in minneapolis about 10 minutes from most places including the stadium. I have a friend from ny coming and we will be attending both the futures game and all star gaming. If you are not creepy and have no criminal background I have one extra room I can rent out ideally for 3 cheap hr derby game tix ;) otherwise we can figure out a cheap cost. My email is can then give you my number so we can chat live.

    Best, Dano

    I’m going to try to make it to this since Mr. Temple owes me a lot of beer from our college days. This could make up for a very small portion of what he owes me.

    Well, fortunately the meetup in MPLS is in a bar, so it is really only a worry about the freeness…….I hope I can make this one, but I will really need to leave work early to have any hope of making it through the traffic.

    The lack of NotGraphs writers is why I am staying home.

    That plus being roughly 1000 miles away from both of these.

    It’s best NOT to invite Dayn Perry, but if Banknotes Harper was not too busy sheep-assing a nasty conglomerate…
