n. pl. haiku also hai•kus
A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.
Is it in our nature to gather in bars and drink together? Is it our seasonal migration to come together every Thursday? Or is this haiku a stretch of the form?
Thursday drinking with our friends
Mike and crew play Songs.
Over the past year, we've danced, sung karaoke, competed in trivia, explored new neighborhoods and remembered that there's no place like home. We've made lots of new friends, and we miss a few old ones.
This week (like most weeks), we return to our drunken and not so humble beginnings, PJ Ryan's, for song, poetry, many pints of beer, shots and whatever else we can scramble together. A year of drinking, when you think about it, is pretty amazing, and we couldn't have done it without all of you. Come toast the havoc we've wrought, and the glory days to come.
