Are most people looking outside of Streetersville/NNS/Gold Coast or whatever neighborhood the school is in?


I looked in NNS. The best deal I could find was 200 more... For 180 square feet.

I guess a lot of people end up in Onterie/McClurg, but I'd rather have 5-600 more a month to spend on everything else.

I agree though I'd prefer to live nearer to the school. Do you have any suggestions for other buildings to look at? I think there are better places than Onterie/McClurg both in price, space, and amenities.

Good for working out during the Fall/Summer, useless to commute to school in. It will literally take you longer to get your bike, ride it to school (assuming you follow traffic signs and the law and stuff), and lock it up than it would take to just walk from Onterie.

Hahaha, just kidding my nightlife will be pritzker legal research center.


If you're at all familiar with SF nightlife, I understand that Wicker Park is comparable to the Mission and Lincoln Park to the Marina.

Health records in the mail and my to do list on Caesar is all complete!
Now I just need to do the little stuff, like find an apartment, figure out how to move all my shit, and sell my car.

met bloomsie IRL. You will all be reassured that he did not give me a serial killer vibe even a little bit.

also bloomsie: I looked up the answer to the SCOTUS Justice pube on a coke can trivia question and it was actually Ginsburg, not Thomas. Who would've thunk it?

So you're saying he's more like a Dexter-ish serial killer?

But Doakes got the vibe from him, so he did give the vibe at least a little. Bloomsie sounds more like Mr. Brooks.

But more importantly, why was there a RBG pube on your coke?

Not even a little bit? Come on!

We did a single round of trivia, and it was... decent, at best. I have never had a good experience with trivia in DC.

Upon further review it seems Gibson's is nothing like it is in The League, we probably shouldn't draft at an expensive steakhouse

Draft in Vegas, get Chad Ochocinco to host. It's not like he's doing anything anyway.

Let's draft at that classic arcade bar ppl were talking about a while ago. We can determine order based on video game tournaments!

So, I'm assuming standard scoring because we're civilized people right? Also, are we doing a flex spot (I'm assuming yes... because we're modern civilized people)? The only debate we should be having is whether or not we want starting roster of QB / 2 RB / 3 WR / FLEX / K / DST or QB / 2 RB / 2 WR / FLEX / K / DST. Really depends on you guys, although I'm more partial to 2 WRs + flex because when I transitioned from playing in a vanilla 2 RB / 3 WR league to playing with a flex my leagues naturally just turned the 3rd WR slot into a flex slot. Some brand new leagues simply just add a new starter to the mix which is really just a "woah, crazy crazy" notion to me.

QB / 2RB / 2WR / 1TE / 1Flex / K / DST is how I've always played

How could you forget TE bro? Is this some poorly conceived plot to make us forget about Jimmy Graham??

I seriously vote arcade competition. We can have mini tournaments on a bunch of games and overall placement determines draft order.

We can do simple stuff like total score on 1 quarter per game. Fighting games we could do an actual tournament. Racing games could be the same.

In case you weren't ITT when we were talking about it, this place has all oldschool games (i.e. Simpsons, X-Men, Rampage) and beer... it should be badass.

Its buried ITT somewhere but I'm at work... I'm sure the locals know what I'm talking about though. M458 linked their website earlier.
