BR - I think the conference championships are both on the 22nd.  The next weekend there are no games.  Super Bowl is the following weekend.

Will we know by December 15th who'll be in the game on January 22nd (or at least who *won't* be?)

I like the idea of a sportsbar afterwards...maybe a round of buffalo wings to cleanse the palate!

Or, we could even hit a local sports bar and watch the game together.  In fact, if it's the conference championship, it could be the Bears versus the Packers.  That might be fun.


After having to eat in that revolting Packer-themed room at Beer Belly's I think some serious payback is in order!

I would fly in from California for the whole roasted pig!!

And you'd be welcome to join us as an auxiliary member of The Contingent.


That sounds so much better than yet another victim...

Brad, I keep forgetting you're still a Flatlander at heart.  Life must be tough for you from roughly training camp through the end of December, and occasionally beyond.  Come into the warm and comforting arms of your fellow Illinois-ing friends; we will ease your pain.
 
Now keep it down on that "victim" stuff.  We've almost got her.

No.
 
We'll have pretty a good idea of who will be going into the playoffs, which start after New Year's.  For all you non-football fans out there, six teams from each conference will start in the playoffs with two of those teams being eliminated each week.  First week; the Wild Card games.  Second week; Divisional Playoffs.  Third week, which would be January 22nd, will be the Conference Championship.  The winners of those two games play each other in the Super Bowl.  Last year the Bears and Packers played each other in the Conference Championship game with the Packers coming out on top.  Both teams are playing exceptionally well right now and seem to be on a path to a repeat of last year's scenario.  If that happens, January 22nd will be a crazy day in this town, even though the game is likely to be played in Green Bay.
 
Now, the weekend of January 7th & 8th, the dates of the Wild Card games has strong potential.  Unless they have a complete breakdown between now and then, the Packers will probably have a bye week.  And even though the Bears would be playing that weekend, it's not as big a deal as the later games, and I would have no problem missing it if that meant I'd spend the day with my friends eating a good meal.  Besides, the Bears might even be playing on Saturday.
 
So, how does that sound?
 
Buddy

7th or 8th is okay if it means no ones mind will be on football (at least as little as some of you may be capable of ) and we don't have to wait until February to go to Sun Wah.

the 7th or the 8th sounds good to me if we can stop talking about the Packers

Sunday the 8th was the date I had in mind.
 
What's the verdict from the rest of the group?

That won't work for me-- January 14 and 15 is probably the earliest weekend in January I can do something, and the 21st and 22nd (and after) is a surer bet.

Any Sunday in January is fine by me.  I suggested the 8th as the one day when the Milwaukee folks, more than likely, wouldn't be consumed with football.  I love my Bears, but given a choice between watching a game and eating a whole roast pig and some crispy duck with my friends, the Monsters of the Midway come in second every time.
 
You guys tell us when you want to do this.  I just ask that we avoid Saturdays.  Probably a good idea anyway, given Sun Wah's popularity.

That works for me, as long as you don't show up in a sequined jumpsuit...

Maybe we should try this for the next get-togther, or this time, if we can't decide soon:

We'd have to use email addresses, though.  Hmm....

We have 10 days to decide so Buddy can make sure he has the day off...other than the football conflict, it sounds like the 22nd was a good day....was there a reason the 29th wouldn't work, since it would avoid the football issue?

I'll be in Appleton on the 29th but I'm but 1 person, so if that's what the majority wants it'll be my loss.

I hate to "kick this can down the road", but it's looking like a post-Super Bowl gathering is more realistic for everyone.  Besides, by February 12th the cabin fever should have kicked in sufficiently to get everyone out of their houses, insuring a bigger group and a better shot at the whole pig.
 
So what does does February look like for everyone?

Looks like 29 days of about 24 hours each for me...
 
Would we be losing anyone to the Glee Club's annual Presidents' Day weekend?

I'll be eating jerk pork and drinking cold Red Stripes in February.
For the first time, I plan on being connected and would love to show my Jamaican friends a Contingent gathering and food feast!

So, if we go on January 29th, the weekend in between the Playoffs and the Super Bowl, we lose ScreamingChicken.  If we wait until February, we lose MilwFoodlovers.  Not sure what to do, so you guys tell us.  MFL, are you gone the entire month of February?
 
Anybody else have any conflicts in February?

4th through the 18th.
I think I'm in Chicago more than our pseudo-FIB S.Chicken.
I say wait for him and go in February. If it rocks I'll be there in March, April, May, etc.
I still want Kalbe/Galbi cooked over charcoal with lots of panchan some day. Maybe I'll start the first Spring Contingent get together; maybe to coincide with the re-opening of Kaufmann's Deli/Bakery or the first robin in spring sighting.

You know it's a leap year, so we get an extra Sunday in February.  We can do this on February 26th if that works for everyone.
 
If you're already looking at a Contingent spring trip to Chicago, there's Cemita Puebla and Troha's already on the list.  On the other hand, it's been a while since the Cheeseheads have put together a Milwaukee run, so you're due.
 
And you can still get great bagels (maybe even better than Kaufmann's) at New York Bagel & Bialy.

P.S. Wouldn't ChickenMan be a pseudo-Cheesehead since he was born in Illinois and only makes his home in Wisconsin these days?

February's a pretty quiet month for me so I'd say the odds are good for the weekend of Feb. 25-26.

SC, we'll take you.
Now just sign this binding document renouncing all things Bears and Cubbie's; Sox fans are OK to live here.
(and if you're old enough, NFL Cardinal fans are copecetic)

Sounds like a date is falling into place.  What about our other Chicago members; ChiTownDiner, irisarbor, does that date work for you?  Milwaukee people? Gyp? stricken_detective?  ann peeples? chicagostyledog?  cjucoder?  living4funwi?  Pie Diva (and your travelin' man, JRPfeff)?
 
There's a roast pig calling your names.  Will you answer?
