Drinking Liberally to close out your September

Hi liberals!

Join us tomorrow in the back room of the Piper Down for our regular Drinking Liberally meetup! Plenty has happened in the last week that we could talk about, but who are we kidding? We’ll probably mostly talk about the first presidential debate. And the first (and only?) gubernatorial debate. But there was also a government shutdown that nearly happened AGAIN. Also, Obama vetoed a bill that would allow families of victims of the 9/11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia, but congress overrode that veto. And now congress is saying the bill is flawed and needs some fixing. Oy.

Mark your calendar now for Candidate Night on October 28th. Invitations are out; so far Charlene Albarran, 2nd Congressional District has accepted. More to come!

Jeremiah, Laura

Drinking Liberally SLC meets from 6:00-8:30 every every Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492 S. State Street).

Drinking Liberally Game Night!

Join us this Friday for Drinking Liberally Game Night! You’ve heard of Cards Against Humanity? We’ll be playing a couple political versions: “Humanity Hates Trump” & “The Contender”! This is sure to be a night of some R rated fun!

And mark your calendar for Candidate Night on Oct 28th. Invitaitons to candidates are out; so far Charlene Albarran, 2nd Congressional District has accepted. More to come!

A bit has happened in the last week. There was the NY and NJ homemade bombs. New Yorkers didn’t seem phased, but many here in the heartland were screaming for it to be labeled terrorism before we had the details, I guess because they felt sufficiently terrorized from afar. There were a couple more high-profile cases of black men being shot by white cops with dubious cause. Let’s see, there’s also the Syria cease fire that isn’t going so well, the North Dakota Access Pipeline, and the deserved grilling of CEOs of both Wells Fargo and the company that makes the EpiPen.

Oh, and we have a debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump coming up on Monday. How sleazy do you think Trump will be?

See you tomorrow for Game Night!

Drinking Liberally Friday September 16th

Hi There Drinking Liberals,

Join us This Friday, tomorrow, for our regular Friday night meeting in the back bar at Piper Down 1492 s. state st starting at 6pm. Come down and have a drink or two of your favorite beverage while we unwind from the week and talk about current events.

With the general election in full swing we have more than enough to talk about. The pressure is mounting for Trump to release his tax returns, but his own son said it would raise too many questions if he did. Clinton had pneumonia and everyone called her out for not telling everyone before hand. Sources close to Trump are apparently getting the rumor mill going about Trump nominating billionaire Peter Thiel to the Supreme Court. Thiel who is on record saying; “I no longer believe that freedom and democracy are compatible” sounds exactly like the type of person i would suspect he would nominate. Leading up to the debates Trump is actually gaining in a few battelground states but still would not have enough to win. My guess is this is mostly due to the daily free headline press he gets every single day. But i feel this will shift once the debates get going in a couple weeks.

In local news West Jordan’s mayor is calling out county mayor Ben McAdams as the one to blame for Facebook building its data center in New Mexico and not here. While McAdams gladly accepts the blame, stating it was a bad deal. And our nitwit senators, Hatch and Lee, in an effort to block Obama from creating any national monuments on his way out of office have actually introduced legislation to try to get Utah exempted from the federal Antiquities Act.

Mark your calendars for some upcoming events:

Drinking Liberally 9/9

Hello Liberals! I (Jeremiah) have been on vacation the last week so I’m just trying to get caught up on the news since I left. Seems like Trump met with the president of Mexico. That went well, I’m assuming? How about at this “Commander-in-chief forum” with Hillary?

Looks like there was some real awkwardness at the G20 summit, not the least of which concerned the stairs to Air Force One. Phillis Schlafly has died, though the regressive, anti-feminist ideals she espoused through the Eagle Forum might take a little longer to die out. Also dead (murdered) is Black Lives Activist Darren Seals. That’s suspicious. Oh, and it looks like Syria has dropped chemical bombs on Aleppo, and North Korea is launching missiles toward Japan.

We might need a little levity. So join us this Friday for our regular Drinking Liberally meetup. And in two weeks (Sept 23rd) we’ll be having a political game night! Laura has two “Cards Against Humanity” type games. One will be “Humanity Hates Trump”, and the other will be a debate version called “The Contender”.

Jeremiah, Laura,

Drinking Liberally, September 2nd

Hello everyone!

Join us tomorrow, September 2nd, from 6:00-9:00 PM, in the back room of the Piper Down (1492 South State Street) for our regular meetup with drinks and discussion.

This week the big news is Donald Trump’s strange trip to Mexico where he either did or did not talk about building a wall. Or maybe the big news is Hillary Clinton’s never ending email saga. But if you are on social media then the biggest news of the week was San Francisco 49ers QB, Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the national anthem. Which is either the greatest exercise of freedom of speech in a generation or the worst thing a human being could ever do, depending on which meme you look at.

Why not take a break from Salt Lake Comic Con and come have a drink with us? We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Jason, Christian
Laura, Jeremiah

Drinking Liberally Dose

It’s time for your regular dose of drinking while liberal!

Subjects of conversation may include Trump’s immigration flip-flop, Burkinis, the ridiculous rising cost of EpiPens, the earthquake in central Italy, the 15k Clinton emails recently released and the demonization of the Clinton Foundation, the attacks on the female characters of the new Ghostbusters movie and especially the vicious attacks on Leslie Jones (could it be because she’s a woman AND black?), the movie Southside With You, or Zika, which is worse than previously thought but prevention here in America goes unfunded due to political games. At least someone has an alternate solution (hint: it’s Hillary Clinton). And speaking of Zika, it looks like there might be some Zika here in Utah.

So join us tomorrow in the back room of the Piper Down starting at 6pm.

Drinking Liberally Friday August 19th

Hi Drinking Liberals

Just your weekly reminder that we will be meeting this Friday in the back bar at Piper Down 1492 S. State St starting at 6pm.

With the general election in full swing there is plenty to talk about. I could post what idiotic thing Trump has said this week but he gets enough free publicity doing so. I do however find it hilarious that a bunch of protesters put up some naked statues of him in several US cities. We can talk about the justice departments announcement today that they will let all of the federal contracts for private prisons expire. Or a plethora of many other topics from the last week.

So come on down and unwind from the week and join me for a drink or two of your favorite beverage with some good conversation.

See you tomorrow,
Christian, Jason,
Laura, Jeremiah

Drinking Liberally tomorrow!

Just your weekly reminder to join us for Drinking Liberally tomorrow at the Piper Down starting at 6. We’ll likely be talking about Trump’s 2nd-amendment-people “joke”, his claim that President Obama founded ISIS, or any of the other absolutely asinine/dangerous things he’s said in the last week. I’m glad to know he realizes he’s got a Utah problem. Hillary, on the other hand, wrote an op-ed in the Deseret News in which she tries to reach out to Mormon voters. Will it work? And we can also try and figure out why Mark Shurtleff was at the Bill Clinton fundraiser today.

See you Friday!

Drinking Liberally, August, 5th

Hello liberal drinkers!

Join us tomorrow, August 5th, from 6:00-9:00 PM, in the back room of the Piper Down (1492 South State Street) for our regular meetup with drinks and discussion.

This week the big news is probably Donald Trump’s complete meltdown.

or the major problems in Rio before the Olympics begin next week.

We can also discuss Penthouse magazine’s scathing indictment of our own Gov. Herbert and Todd Weiler for their anti-porn crusade.

Then there is Jeremy Johnson’s 11 year sentencefor filling out paperwork wrong. To anyone keeping score, that’s 11 years in prison for the whistle blower and zero for the (alleged) corrupt AGs he turned in.

Or perhaps you may be interested in helping Utah get our first after school program for Satanists. I imagine the snacks are probably better and the rules a bit more indulgent.

Anyway, why not get out of this heat for a couple of hours and have a dink with us! We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
