Drinking Liberally Friday January 20th

Drinking Liberals,

Tomorrow is the day, D-Day the Day of Dread, the day Lord Cheeto becomes the 45th president of our country (although according to him he won’t actually assume the role until Monday, after he recovers from the weekend partying). As if it wasn’t hard enough this week watching the most unqualified list of cabinet nominees try to explain how they can do the job they have no qualifications for. Tomorrow the Great Orange One will become the Commander In Chief of our armed forces.

So please come join me (Christian) this Friday night as we drown our sorrows from inauguration day and discuss the many other events from the week. We will be having our regular meetup in the back bar of Piper Down 1492 S. State St. starting at 6pm.

Obama’s plug for Drinking Liberally

“If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet, try talking with one of them in real life.” – President Obama encouraging you to go to Drinking Liberally.

How about that farewell address though? And the surprise Presidential Medal of Freedom Obama gave to Biden today? This is a rough goodbye. So come join Jeremiah and Laura tomorrow – the last Drinking Liberally under an Obama presidency – to raise a toast in farewell. There’s a LOT to talk about, and Laura will have a fun activity too.

Drinking Liberally Meetup Reminder,Friday January 6th

Hello everyone!

We hope everyone had a good New Year. It had to be better than Mariah’s, right? Please join us tomorrow evening for our regularly scheduled gathering in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM.

One thing we may wish to talk about is Trump’s baffling behavior. This week he picked a fight with China, North Korea, and the American intelligence community. He also stuck up for Julian Assange, a man he previously said deserved to be executed.

Or we could talk about Congress’ attempt to gut the independent ethics committee on their first day back from recess…which lasted less than 24 hours before they reversed themselves.

In local news we can discuss the contentious issue of the four new homeless shelters and the immense amount of political capital the Mayor’s office and City Council is exhausting trying to navigate the issue.

So, please brave the elements and join our host Christian to hoist a couple of drinks and discuss the important topics of your choosing!
