ass handed to me

This definitely brought a tear to my eye.  What a wonderful article!!

I sorta got my ass handed to me in this letter about my review of Abyssinia, but I stand by what I said. If he means I made factual errors I wish he had pointed them out.  People who ate with me will confirm that some of them were wayyyy too salty and I love salt.

When does the Four Eyes show start?

Natalie Rose said...

Just saving myself for Saturday.

7pm, not 8!

Anonymous said...

Nope, it starts at 7:00. The show's too long to start at 8:00.

If anyone knows of any super-deals on cheap brew going on right now, let us know! Please no Game Day.

oh yeah, I knew it was 7. How about Game Day Light for those of us watching our figures.

Little known fact: Game Day Ice is actually ultra low calories. As it is impossible to drink more than a sip.

It starts exactly at 7pm. we're even renting an atomic clock in order to be precise and accurate. The first song also may just be the most requested request that we've ever had!*
get there at 6 or 6:30 for the preshow, also known as, "setting up crap and standing around." Some people claim its the most memorable part of the night.

*-I dont remember what the first song is to be.

beckler said...

What if someone takes a sip of Game Day Ice and does a spit take and some of it lands in your mouth?

1) how many calories is that
2) can it give me eye herpes?

beckler said...

I posted this below, want to make sure no one misses it

Has anyone ever requested this for the Four Eyes show?!?!?!?!?!?!

ninja said...

If my memory wasnt so terrible, I would swear we've covered it before, like in the Loft days. Biz will know.

Strokin. Definitely been done!

But has "Hot Stuff" been done? Actually it probably has too.

And finally let me ask you this - have you ever made love on a COUCH?

Also, kind of can't believe there's an official Strokin' video.

I can't wait to get off the clock!

I don't think we've done Hot Stuff. Definitely did some Strokin tho. Back in the Loft days.

"On the disco-ish "Hot Stuff," for example he compares a prospective lover to a selection at a fast food restaurant ("I like mine," he observes, "soft and juicy and on a bun." )"

My favorite thing about "Hot Stuff" is how dispassionately Carter sings it. It's really hard to believe that he actually, in fact, likes hot stuff.

Its like Game Day Ice but not as good/painful.
They're the cheap beer you find at grocery outlet or Cheaper, I think.

Or a crystal skull even?
A better question is what will 2012's bad idea booze be?

I'm torn about whether I want the fake Christmas tree there. It really stoked up the left side's team spirit but it ended in blood.

How about Game Day sake bombs, GW?

I would like to see this years show with 100% less bleeding head wounds.

beckler said...

Foam fingers for the left side? Anybody got them? My head and heart bleed for the left side. In fact, I think it would be apt to say, Clear Eyes, Full Heart, Can't Lose, Left Side.

beckler said...

Left Side Rydas!

beckler said...

Who let the Left Side out? Who? Who? Who?

beckler said...

Don't get Left behind?

beckler said...

Right Side: so wrong

beckler said...

Left Side: Best Side

beckler said...

I just realized I was on the Right Side last year. Left Side: don't steal my chants.

Although are the sides determined by the way the Four Eyes are facing? We need to hash this out RIGHT NOW

beckler said...

Right Side: Right Side

beckler said...

Right Side: tight side

The real question is: who's this dick in the middle?

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right.

beckler said...

which right and left though? yours or ours?

Cody said...

Just curious, does the year with the Crystal Skull go down as the most out of control Four Eyes Christmas show? Or was that just me? That night did not end well. Not sure if I should blame Dan Akroyd or whoever brought those cookies that I ate three of.

Man, I can't wait till saturday.

-Cody

Was the Crystal Skull year the same one as the pot cookies? That has to be most out of control, in a bad way, at least. Also, I think that's the year we made the ill-advised attempt to do four sets. Which we learned is exactly one set too many.

-biz

beckler said...

I think last year was the most out of control due to the blood. The crystal skull year was not the most out of control, you guys just can't handle your pot cookies.

Let's chant crystal skull even if it's not there.

Also, Biz maybe it would be a great idea to bring that giant glass sword filled with tequila. What could go wrong?

Anonymous said...

A. That's Armenian Liquor in that sword.

B. DP says it needs to age about 10 years, and it's only been like five.

C. Vann. Vann is what could go wrong.

Liv Moe said...

I brought this to the Crestmas party this year and even tho folks were lowkey about it, I could tell folks were hella stoked on this fine combination of 3 flavors and 4 liquors.

P.S. let me please remind everyone that it is not easy nor pleasant to get your drinks in Oak Park, get them before you cross Alhambra.
