As I dusted off the ancient scrolls that our forebears bequeffed us I see that the BFM has been going to Cavanaugh's Rittenhouse since at least #137. Ah, what a time to be alive. As the scriptures read, 137 was a crisp autumn night in 2006. Drunkards stumbled into Cav's as Sexy Back played on repeat. The pre-trail conversation was filled with worry over news that a pumpkin shortage was afoot on the eve of All Hallows Eve and happiness that a young arguably innocent Just (not yet an uncle) Fister had negotiated the demilitarization of the IRA from his outpost in Korea. Straws were drawn, a hare was chosen. Mystery beer were drank and cheesesteaks were eaten. A call as old as time itself then bellowed out "CHALK TALK" at which point the conversation ceased as the pack gathered and were soon out for a night of merriment and joy. AIM is out and slipping into DMs is in (I think, I'm honestly not 100% sure what that means), but not much has changed since then (seriously, the mystery beers and cheesesteaks here are still on point). Cum one, CUM ALL for another classic trail at another classic BFM bar.
Meh, not needed
