To celebrate our exit from Cardinal Stadium, I am organizing a little pre- and post-game party on October 4th. I had flyers for people I wanted to invite at the Open Cup semifinal game but many of them did not show up or I did not catch after the game. Therefore, even though I did not want to, I am posting this on BigSoccer. Besides the people I managed to catch after the semifinal, I would like to invite Don from the Barn Burners; Iceblink; Arsonists (a.k.a. Rich) with all the Arsonists he can bring; chitowndoll (a.k.a. Abby), Andrew, Cameron, Flynn, Craig, the mysterious MikeDitkaStreetCrew and all the other MDSC types whose names or handles I cannot remember now (please advise them if you meet them); CFnwside (a.k.a. Filip) with his guys and gals (let know Mr. Szczecina, too); gwardia (bring Siwy, Krzysiek, Kowal and whoever else with you or tell them); pink flamingos ??? (a.k.a. Jacek or Jack); Hool with his ekipa; bunge; heybeerman; zlzfire (a.k.a. Zak); and Jason with his band (I guess he knows already). If I forgot about anybody, please remind me of yourself, and I will get you invited. Here is the plan: The party would start at 2 PM at my house (a.k.a. the little house on the prairie). If it rains then too bad, we will have to hide inside (I have a spacious garage if you take all the shit out). We would leave for the game around 6:30 PM (it is a 20 minute drive) and then return for more drinking (only those who still will be able to). For those who think that I live so fucking far, this party and game will count as a road trip, OK? I will even give you a bumper sticker to commemorate this. The menu will be geared toward the flashback to the memorable communist times in Poland when only bread with pork fat, pickles, sausage, and vodka were available. The meat choices, in addition to the already mentioned genuine Polish sausage (cooked or grilled, served with horseradish sauce or Polish style mustard, no fucking ketchup) will include pate (pork or game), and, depending on demand, blood sausage (kaszanka). I will consider serving sauerkraut with the sausage but I am afraid Section 8 might smell funny if I decide to do that. You can drink all the vodka that I have at home but if you are not very fond of fire water (the official drink of Chicago Fire), it is suggested that you bring your own bubbles. Let me know if you are coming; PM me to get the directions. This little favor will be appreciated: I am in the need of lawn chairs--I will certainly not have enough of them. Lawn table(s) would be good, too. PM me if you can loan them to me/bring them with you. I am expecting you all there. Marcin P.S. Aha, I will try to quietly collect a little money for the October 10th game at the party. It is absolutely no requirement to give anything to me though.
