Drinking Liberally This Friday 05/08 At Piper Down

Howdy Liberal Drinkers,

Join us this Friday evening May 8th for our regularly scheduled meetup in the back bar at Piper Down from 6:00 to 8:30pm 1492 S. State St. We also have a lot of great things coming up so check the dates below. In the meantime joins tomorrow for a pint or two and discuss our favorite topic, politics! :-)

We have plenty to talk about with plenty going on but i just can’t seem to take my focus off the tinfoil hat situation going on in Texas that has me thoroughly entertained, with the governor deploying the national guard to prevent an Obama takeover because of some planned military training exercises. The pentagon had to make it clear they were not doing that, to which Chuck Norris replied that it was all a lie and part of their takeover plan. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, i had to take a second look at the sources cause i thought i was reading articles from The Onion. Ha ha!

We’ve got some good stuff coming up so save these dates.

Drinking Liberally This Friday 04/17 At Piper Down

Greetings Liberal Drinkers,

Join us tomorrow night for a pint or two for our regular Friday night meetup in the back bar at Piper Down (1492 s State St) from 6 pm to 8:30 pm.

We have some fun stuff coming up this summer, starting with a Friends With Benefits night in towards the end of May. Its not what you think so get your minds out of the gutter. More on that to be announced soon!

We have plenty to talk about tomorrow, we can start with what we all knew would happen like Hillary Clinton announcing her candidacy> and it took no time for the likes of Rush Limbaugh to make up stuff to try to slander her name and say that she doesn’t tip at Chipolte Who does? And USAtoday shows that the manager didn’t even know she was there. I just think that it is funny that the petty stuff is starting already. I mean really it’s always happening but this one just make me laugh. Just goes to show that we are in for some fun stuff in the upcoming 18 months leading up the next presidential election.

So come on down and have a drink and chit chat with us about whatever political is on your mind.

See you tomorrow night,
Christian, Laura,
Jason, Jeremiah

Drinking Liberally tomorrow night

Thanks to Kevin Leecaster and Citizens Climate Lobby for coming out to speak with us last week!

This week will be back in the back room of the Piper Down from 6:00 to 9:00 talking about current events like the the horrible murder of an unarmed black man by a police officer in South Carolina. Or maybe if that gets too depressing, we can talk about Rand Paul throwing his hat into the ring. Or you know, whatever is on your mind!

See you Friday at 6!

DL Tomorrow W/Citizens Climate Lobby

Hello everyone! We will be having our regular gathering in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South, State Street) from 6:00-9:00PM tomorrow, Friday, April 3rd.

Hopefully a few of our members got to see the President during his first visit to Utah since he was elected. If the trip to SLC had not been so last minute, we could have invited the President to attend our meeting!

We will have Kevin Leecaster, environmental scientist and volunteer with with Citizens Climate Lobby, a non-partisan grassroots organization seeking an effective solution to address climate change that will put us on a path to a more sustainable energy economy. Kevin will talk to us about a few substantive things that can be done. Make sure to ask Kevin about his recent meeting with Senator Mike Lee!

From Kevin:

“I hope you can come on April 3rd to learn more about Citizens Climate Lobby for a short discussion and longer question and answer session as we hope to gain more support to help sway our legislators all around the country during this important #PathwayToParis year in which we need to build the political will to create a concrete global commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

We hope to see you tomorrow starting at 6:00!

Drinking Liberally tomorrow night

Join us in the back room of the Piper Down this Friday for another round of Drinking Liberally! We’ll be there from 6:00 to about 8:30pm.

It seems like presidential election season has started, and since we’ll be hearing about that ad nauseam for the foreseeable future, we don’t have to talk about it yet. But come on, how bad for America would Ted Cruz be with more power?

Locally, the Salt Lake City mayor’s race is also heating up with plenty of good potential candidates. Statewide, Utah officially has a firing squad alternative for executions again, which made news all over the world. If you can remember the last time Utah made worldwide news for something great, please, come share it with the group!

On April 3rd we will have Kevin Leecaster, environmental scientist and volunteer with with Citizens Climate Lobby, a non-partisan grassroots organization seeking an effective solution to address climate change that will put us on a path to a more sustainable energy economy.

See you tomorrow night!

Drinking Liberally Friday March 20th

Hello Liberal Drinkers,

Join us tomorrow for our regular Friday night meetup at Piper Down 1492 S. State St. please note that our meeting time has changed, going forward we will start earlier at 6:00pm and ending earlier at 8:30pm.

We would like to thank Maryann Martindale of Alliance for a Better Utah for coming out last week to speak. We hope everyone had a good time.

We’ve got plenty to talk about this week, in Israel, Netanyahu took a page from our own fearmongering tactics to pull off an unexpected win. Prompting Obama to reaffirm in a phone call that the United States is committed to a two state solution and now Netanyahu has suddenly back offed his fearmongering for a minute and is back tracking on what he said leading up to election day.

The republicans can’t seem to play nice with each and come to agreements on a budget (big surprise) and are attacking their own. The infighting just makes me want to grab some popcorn and enjoy the entertainment for a bit.

So come on down and share a pint or two with me and don’t forget to set a reminder for yourself about our new times.

See you tomorrow night,
Christian, Laura
Jeremiah, Jason
