Friday night specials at the Wild Goose are $2.50 Bass, Guinness and Harp pints and an all-you-can-eat Friday Fish Fry* for $6.75. This, combined with some exciting NCAA tournament games happening, ensured that the Wild Goose was packed. Using Jake & Dave’s $10 they gave me for drinking, I was able to purchase 4 beers instead of the 2 they intended. Maybe it’s the cheap drink prices in Chicago that will turn me into an alcoholic and not my friends giving me money specifically for drinking.. or maybe it’s a combination of both. After the Wild Goose we hit up this lame club called Crush (thanks Trent), met everyone over to Ginbucks, scarfed some food from Flash Taco, and piled into Kristin’s bed to watch an exciting episode of CHiPS and a biography on Jeffrey Dahmer. Before I knew it, it was 4 am and I decided I better go home so I split a cab (5 to 20, 5 to 20) with Kevin & Justin.
*Friday Fish Fry is a cultural tradition in the midwest that stemmed from the religious tradition of not eating meat on Fridays.
