We will have Mayor Becker, who is running for reelection as the Salt Lake City Mayor, join us on July 10th.

We will have a regular meeting with no guests on July 24th despite the holiday.

Then July 31st will be our annual group trip to see Saturday’s Voyeur. Our block of tickets are half gone already so if you want the discount, you must purchase them soon.

In The News

The first Salt Lake City Mayoral candidate debate was on Wednesday.

Drinking Liberally RESCHEDULED with Jackie Biskupski

Hi all,

Due to the historic Supreme Court decision this morning making same-sex marriage the law of the land!!!, Jackie Biskupski has asked if we could reschedule her appearance tonight, and we don’t blame her.

We’ll still be holding our Drinking Liberally meeting, it just won’t be with a guest speaker. We’ll keep you posted on details once we’ve rescheduled with Jackie.

Your hosts,
Laura, Jeremiah,
Jason, Christian

Drinking Liberally with Jackie Biskupski!

Join us this week as we have guest speaker Jackie Biskupski, who is running for Salt Lake City Mayor. Grab your politically-interested friends and come hear her ideas on how to make Salt Lake better.

And then don’t miss the Mayor himself, Ralph Becker, when he joins us on July 10th!

Another thing you don’t want to miss is Saturday’s Voyeur with Drinking Liberally! In case you’ve never been, Saturday’s Voyeur is cabaret style musical satire about life, politics and religion in Utah. It’s not for the easily offended. This year our night is Friday, July 31st. Our official reservation holding period has come and gone, but if you can still get tickets for that night, join us in the green room for our pre-party starting at 6:30.

Before Jackie speaks, we’ll have plenty to talk about. There’s the horrendous shooting in South Carolina, which has spurned a long-overdue discussion about the confederate flag and other symbols of American oppression. And there’s the Senate’s passage of Fast Track, which Wall Street no doubt approves of. But of course there are also good things to talk about, like the Supreme Court ruling in favor of the tax subsidies that help poor and middle-class people buy health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

So join us this Friday night in the back room of the Piper Down, starting at 6pm!

Drinking Liberally This Friday 06/19 At Piper Down

Howdy Liberal Drinkers,

Join us this Friday night for our regularly scheduled meetup in the back bar at Piper Down (1492 S. State St.) from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. We have a ton to talk about, from Donald Trump joining the never ending list of Republican candidates while everyone, including those in his own party laugh. Jeb, don’t call me Bush it’s just Jeb has joined with other American conservative politicians that think The Pope (who is the head of the worlds largest religion and just happens to also have a masters degree in chemistry) doesn’t know what he is talking about and should stay quiet on climate change. Then there is the horrible racially motivated shooting in a Charelston, SC church last night, that still has me in shock. So come down and join the conversation for a drink or two or three…

Upcoming events:

Remaining SLC Mayoral Candidate nights

Drinking Liberally Friday

Thanks for everyone who came out and participated in our good discussion with Councilman and mayoral candidate Luke Garrott. And of course thanks to Luke for coming out to chat with us. Don’t miss:

Jackie Biskupski on June 26th, and
Mayor Ralph Becker on July 10th

Another thing you don’t want to miss is Saturday’s Voyeur with Drinking Liberally! In case you’ve never been, Saturday’s Voyeur is cabaret style musical satire about life, politics and religion in Utah. It’s not for the easily offended. This year our night is Friday, July 31st, and we’ll be having a pre-party in the greenroom starting at 6:30. But you have to get your tickets by June 24th (less than two weeks from today) to get the Drinking Liberally discount. So what are you waiting for???

This week we’ll be back to our regular antics in the back room of the Piper Down. Once again, there’s plenty to talk about, including the bad cop in McKinney, TX and the systemic racism that’s getting harder and harder for America to deny; Rupert Murdoch stepping down; and our own SLC Chief Burbank resigning. Or we can just scheme plans to disrupt Mitt Romney’s intimate gathering of the rich and powerful that starts today in Park City.

Welp, see you tomorrow!
Jeremiah, Laura,
Jason, Christian

In the News

After failing to reauthorize key-components of the Patriot Act last Sunday, on Tuesday the Senate scrambled and passed theslightly less Orwellian Freedom Act that curtails some of the intelligence services’ ability to blanketly collect metadata and requires a warant from the FISA court. It is a start…

Utah is last in per-pupil spending again but we should feel fine and have faith, according to Brad Smith, our Superintendent of schools.

Rep. Ken Ivory may be in a bit of trouble over money and his anti-federal land efforts.

and finally, theUtah Pride Festival is this weekend.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Drinking Liberely Friends With Benefits Night

Hello Everyone!

Tomorrow evening we will be having our first ever attempt at a recruitment drive. Hopefully by now you have seen and heard about our event we are calling Friends With Benefits. The idea is that a regular attendee will bring along a friend that has never attended our gathering before and the hosts will buy them their first drink. You don’t have to come with a regular either! This also applies to anyone who has been on the email list or the Facebook group but has not yet made it to one of our meetups. Come alone and let us know it is your first time and we will buy you a drink. You will find us in our regular meeting spot in the back bar at Piper Down (1492 South, State Street) from 6:00PM -9:00 PM

Upcoming events

June/July – SLC Mayoral Candidates

June 5: Luke Garrott

June 26: Jackie Biskupski

July 10: Ralph Becker

July 31 – Saturday’s Voyeur Our annual outing to Saturdays Voyuer.

In the news

Don’t look forward to any increase in Utah education funding if the State Superintendent has anything to say .

Former House Speaker Denny Hastert has been indicted.

Apparently FIFA may be corrupt. Who would have thought? I mean, it is completely natural to hold the World Cup in 120 degree temperatures in the Qatari desert, right?

Also, ISIS has taken Palmyra. I don’t want to talk about it.

Anyway, we hope to see a lot of new faces tomorrow evening! If this experiment works we will try some similar events in the future.

Hey There Drinking Liberals,

I apologize for not getting this out last night, i was not near a computer to do so. But do not fret, we are having our regularly scheduled meetup tonight in the back bar at Piper Down from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. So come join us for a pint or two for our regular roundtable discussion of current events and the state of politics today with your favorite Drinking Liberals!

SAVE THE DATES

May 29 – Friends with Benefits – It is time for Drinking Liberally to try out our own very special recruiting drive which we will call “Friends With Benefits!” The idea is for a regular member of Drinking Liberally to bring a like minded friend along with them to attend their first ever DL meetup and the hosts will buy them their first drink!.* We may have some games and prizes as well. *see disclaimer below

June/July – SLC Mayoral Candidates

June 5: Luke Garrott

June 26: Jackie Biskupski

July 10: Ralph Becker

July 31 – Saturday’s Voyeur Our annual outing to Saturdays Voyuer.

*(DISCLAIMER: The friend must be a first time attendee to receive “benefits” or have not attended in so long that no one remembers them. Only one drink per a pair, (sorry people, you have to share! We hosts are not made of money and we are only partially comprised of alcoholic beverages) Drinks must be reasonably priced and the details of the “benefits” promotion is subject to change when the hosts’ wallets become empty. First time attendees should be aware that the facts expressed at our meetup are shared by everyone while the opinions solely reside with the person expressing them. The fun part is determining which is which. If the first time attendee is easily offended, please let us know in advance so we can do a thorough job of it. Blame for any emotional trauma or pain and anguish incurred during the meetup will have to be determined by the courts. On a completely unrelated subject, does anyone know a good civil defense lawyer? Finally, keep in mind that Pabst Blue Ribbon is a completely legitimate drink.
