Doesn't that look inviting? The scenery's only a mural on the wall, of course, but the food is great, the service is outstanding and you won't find a more welcoming group than Chicago Kossacks.

We will be getting together as per our earlier announcement (here) at Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna, 130 S Halsted St. next Thursday, May 16th. You'll find your friends there starting at 6p. We will be celebrating the 101st anniversary of Studs Terkel's birth and then will have dinner at about 7p.

There are prizes to be awarded - for what? Well, those will be game time decisions. Use your imagination to figure out what you can do to win something! But, most of all, just come and have some fun, talk some Chicago politics, and share your memories of Studs.

Our guest list is looking like this right now but, as I hope the title makes clear.... it is never too late to join us. We have some folks coming quite a distance for this event - NormAl1792, winifred, and Tim DeLaney - so we'll want to show them some special Kossack good cheer.

Empower Ink
Tim DeLaney
Mr. broths
Hotsie Horsie (figgy's pal)
Captain Pants - strong maybe

We would love to add YOUR name to the list. Drop a comment below or send a kosmail to figbash or broths to RSVP or ask any questions you might have. Looking forward to seeing you there.

5:54p  Update Fixed spelling of Tim's last name and added Captain Pants as a strong maybe. Somehow I lost him in the shuffle earlier.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
