The Weekly Weasel — Week of June 9

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Dude?!? It’s Tuesday!
Remember that guy who would walk into your dorm room and ask if you wanted to party? You’d be like, "No, Man, I have to study."

Then he’d say, "Dude?!? It’s Tuesday!"

Well, same thing only Diplomacy. Who’s in for an evening of Dip and Drinks at the Red Lion next Tuesday, June 17, at 6:30 p.m.?

Running with the Bull Weasel
Bull Weasel Josh Heffernan is hosting a Dip game at his home in Logan Square, June 21 beginning at Noon. We still need three players to fill the board, so speak up if you’re interested. This likely will be the last house game before Weasel Moot.

Join us for Weasel Moot
Just 46 days till Weasel Moot. Have you made your plans to join us? Now’s the time to clear your schedule for July 26-27. We’ll be right downtown this year in the heart of Chicago’s bustling River North neighborhood at the Hampton Inn and Suites, 33 W Illinois. Call 312-832-0330 to reserve your room or visit our website for other housing options, including Airbnb.

This year’s event will feature two rounds on Saturday, July 26, and one on Sunday the 27th. We’re planning an outing for Friday night the 25th, possibly to the Blue Frog’s Local 22 karaoke bar, which is right by the Hampton Inn. Should be a fun time. For travelers who arrive early enough, we may also organize an outing to Wrigley Field to catch the Cubs and Cardinals. First pitch is at 3:05.

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