The Weekly Weasel — Week of April 14

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Need One More for Wednesday’s Game
We need one more player for Wednesday’s Bar Room Brawl game at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. The game is set to begin at 6:30 until no later than 11.

Weasel Moot Housing Deadline Looms
Our discounted room rate at the Hampton Inn and Suites expires on April 28, which is two weeks away. To reserve your room, call 312-832-0330. Mention Weasel Moot 2014 to get our room rate of $189 per night. On the 29th, that rate will go up as much as $20 per night. Of course, you’re welcome to search for other housing options. There are plenty in the city, and we’re not on the hook for any of the rooms in our block at the Hampton Inn.

The dates again are July 26-27. The Hampton Inn is in the heart of River North. It’s a great location, and it should be a fun event. You can find all the info you need here, but briefly, it will be a three-round tournament with the best two rounds counting for score. We’ll have two rounds on Saturday and one on Sunday. On Friday, we plan to organize a social event — perhaps an outing to the Blue Frog’s Local 22 karaoke bar, which is right by the Hampton Inn.

Check out the site and go ahead and preregister. You’ll save $5.
