popa- I am going to be at Shallots tonight with a friend and I am hoping to see you.
yummy cupcake- Yes, I am a guy from Chicago. I understand that you might not have thought I was from Chicago, but not a guy?September 22, 2011 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #832787
Nuuu? Popa, you’re not going to keep us up to date about your trip?September 23, 2011 12:44 am at 12:44 am #832788
I am now sitting in Shallots with popa but I dont know who he is.September 23, 2011 12:52 am at 12:52 am #832789yummy cupcakeMember
onegoal, i’m not on here as often as i used to be. (well, besides for the past few days, but i mean in general). so i don’t remember all these minor details 🙂 also u have a very neutral screen name.September 23, 2011 2:30 am at 2:30 am #832790
Shallots was excellent.
I had sushi, and then the lamb and beef duo.
And I didn’t know who onegoal was either.September 23, 2011 2:35 am at 2:35 am #832791
aw popa – you mean nobody found out who you are? what a shame! we all had a great opportunity and missed it.
i was going to have my husband call shallots and ask for a customer named popa bar abba. would you have come to the phone if he really did that?September 23, 2011 2:46 am at 2:46 am #832792
Popa- Where were you sitting? Were you wearing a blue shirt? What time did you leave? Where are you staying for shabbos? Where are you davening?September 23, 2011 2:50 am at 2:50 am #832793
I was sitting at a table.
I was wearing a shirt.
I left when I was done.
I am staying somewhere for shabbos.
I didn’t decide where I’m davening.September 23, 2011 3:12 am at 3:12 am #832794
popa, was that you on the mezzanine under the stone arches? On the opposite side of the wine rack? I was going to say hi, or send over a bottle of Merlot, but I didn’t want to make an unwelcome interruption.September 23, 2011 3:15 am at 3:15 am #832795
popa, was that you on the mezzanine under the stone arches? On the opposite side of the wine rack?
How the blazes am I supposed to know? I don’t know what any of that means.
And what the blazes are you doing in chicago?September 23, 2011 3:22 am at 3:22 am #832796
squeak- You were there too? Or did you just visit there before?
popa- Thanks for the help I saw you sitting there but felt stupid going over to you.September 23, 2011 5:13 am at 5:13 am #832797Smick.Member
onegoal: Why didn’t you get one of the waiters to go around to all the tables, and ask if anyone was popa bar abba, then have him point him out… 🙂 snap a picture and have it plastered onto ywn for all to see this famous popa…September 23, 2011 12:34 pm at 12:34 pm #832798
“I don’t know what any of that means”
Sorry for not being clear. Merlot is a mid-range popular red wine, in the exact way that Chardonnay is not. An unwelcome interruption is when someone calls attention to themself or tries to demand your attention when you would prefer not to be distracted.September 23, 2011 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #832799
Nu, I’m at the starbucks on Lincoln near the bridge.September 23, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #832800
Say hello to my wife. She’s teaching at JDBY, right across the street! Maybe she’ll offer you some cupcakes for Shabbos!September 23, 2011 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #832801
i don’t live too far from there. u shud have come to say hi – except i was at work.
are you gonna be in chicago for any of the yomim tovim? ya gotta experience yom tov here!September 23, 2011 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #832802
I was in starbucks for hours today, and none of you came by. (well, there were a few frum people there, but nobody seemed to be popa seeking.)
Gefen: I don’t know where you live. You knew where I was. The question is at you.September 23, 2011 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #832803
popa – sorry – but like i said – i was at work today. try again on sunday. let us know whee you’ll be. actually i do know someone who went to shallots last night and then went to look for you at starbucks. i guess most ppl don’t just want to go over and say “hey – are you popa bar abba”?September 23, 2011 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #832804
There were two frum girls sitting right behind me, but it is even more inappropriate to ask someone if they are giggle girl or sem 20.September 23, 2011 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #832805
Just so you should know, Popa, Sem20 is a guy.
I was actually tempted to stop by, but I figured people don’t stay in Starbucks very long. Thought it would be a fool’s errand.September 25, 2011 1:35 am at 1:35 am #832806
I davened at the kollel again.
I was hoping midwesterner might show up friday night, but I asked someone and he wasn’t there. (I asked someone from telshe if the baal koreh was there. He told me who the baal koreh is, and said he wasn’t there.)September 25, 2011 1:51 am at 1:51 am #832807
Hmmm! Appreciate getting noticed! But the Kollel is a bit of a walk for me, so I don’t go there often on Shabbos. Even though my 9-5 employer is the primary sponsor there.
Hope you enjoyed your stay in town! Where you gonna be for selichos?September 25, 2011 1:56 am at 1:56 am #832808
so what’s ur schedule tomorrow? let’s have the whole chicago following you around! gonna be a fun day!
btw- u never answered my q – if my husband would have called shallots and asked for popa_bar_abba, would you have come to the phone? 😉September 25, 2011 2:00 am at 2:00 am #832809
I don’t tell my schedule in advance.
Probably won’t do nighttime selichos.September 25, 2011 2:40 am at 2:40 am #832810
popa – seriously we really need a minyan tomorrow shachris. Our rav has yartzeit and its sometimes hard to get a minyan. Would you be willing to come to rabbi goldzweig? It will IY”H be at 8 am. You can find the address in the acheinu i do not really know if they want me to post it on the internet.September 25, 2011 2:56 am at 2:56 am #832812giggle girlParticipant
um popa – i never even tasted coffee and i don’t plan on it either. (i don’t want to get addicted!) so basically, it wasn’t me in starbucks. oh well.
AND I WOULDN’T BE WITH SEM20! HE’S A GUY AND I’M A GIRL!September 25, 2011 3:04 am at 3:04 am #832813
AND I WOULDN’T BE WITH SEM20! HE’S A GUY AND I’M A GIRL!
Firstly, you could be dating him. (and I am now officially calling dibs on the chicago money for dates payment, if you ever do date him.)
Secondly, WHY IN BLAZES SHOULD I THINK HE’S A GUY WHEN HIS NAME IS SEM20?September 25, 2011 3:31 am at 3:31 am #832814
Sheesh, you must’ve said “blazes” a dozen times in this thread. What is this, the great Chicago fire version 2.0?September 25, 2011 3:39 am at 3:39 am #832816giggle girlParticipant
sorry popa – i’m not dating yet. i’m not ready yet to start going out.September 25, 2011 4:13 am at 4:13 am #832817
mods must be at slichos now – there hasn’t been an update in a while. guess we’ll have to wait till they get back.September 25, 2011 4:48 am at 4:48 am #832818
Hey popa what you are not talking to me you did not answer my previos message 🙁September 25, 2011 5:02 am at 5:02 am #832819
ymhtb1: I know lots of people there.
gg: well, I’m calling dibs on the money when you do.
squeak: blazesSeptember 25, 2011 5:26 am at 5:26 am #832820
ymhtb1: Do you know anyone in that yeshiva they share a building with? (mechon torah or something?)September 25, 2011 5:45 am at 5:45 am #832821
pba – yeah i know almost everyone there i used to go there and btw its meor hatorah. so any way you going to come and help with a minyan tomorrow.
PS info in post aboveSeptember 25, 2011 5:48 am at 5:48 am #832822

Hmmmm. Someone just gave something away. Hee hee.
Sorry, I won’t be able to come tomorrow.
Where do you go now?September 25, 2011 5:53 am at 5:53 am #832824
i am learning with a chavrusaSeptember 25, 2011 5:56 am at 5:56 am #832825
Cool!September 25, 2011 6:08 am at 6:08 am #832826
Learning bechavrusa and posting on the CR at the same time? What talent!
Reminds me of this thread from last week. http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/davening-while-running-through-the-streetsSeptember 25, 2011 10:37 am at 10:37 am #832827kapustaParticipant
There were two frum girls sitting right behind me
That was me.
Ok it wasn’t.
Anyone up for a CR meet in Brooklyn? Is anyone else from the rest of the world even reading this thread anymore?September 25, 2011 11:06 am at 11:06 am #832828
So, PBA, will I see you at 6:30 AM Selichos in Telshe?September 25, 2011 1:21 pm at 1:21 pm #832829
Kapusta, the only one youll meet will be joeySeptember 25, 2011 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #832830charlie brownMember
methinks poppa hasn’t set foot in Chicago recently but still got all the chicagonians to run around town looking for him and reveal their identities here in the CR. Pretty cool. Joseph would be jealous. 🙂September 25, 2011 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #832831
Actually, Popa is sitting in the same starbucks again. And will be here until about 4:00 PM.
Then, I will be flying to Boston on the 6:00 flight. That is a blazes lot of flying. I’ll be in Boston for a couple of days. (Ok, not actually boston, but the surrounding area.)
I am currently watching some frum looking guy sell a bunch of weirdos an energy MLM.
And I thank L-rd that I have the ability to get a clean job and don’t need to get involved in shady businesses.
So, if anyone comes by, I’m not the shady dude selling MLM’s.September 25, 2011 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #832832
So which one are you?September 25, 2011 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #832833
who in the world sits in Starbucks for 4 hours??!!September 25, 2011 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #832834
who in the world sits in Starbucks for 4 hours??!!
Carmen Sandiego?September 25, 2011 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #832835
LOL – seriously – why would u sit there that long? my guess is either 1) ur really not there and just want to send ppl on a wild goose chase or 2)u are really waiting to be discovered by the cr.September 25, 2011 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #832836
I guess you’ll never know.
(I could think of lots of reasons to be in starbucks all day. Like selling MLM’s)September 25, 2011 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #832837
yeah – we’ve gotten a few phone calls about that already. we refuse to get involved in that. so don’t worry, if we come by we won’t try to sell you anything.
so…other than white shirt, black pants, black hat – how can we know who you are?
