Drinking Liberally Meeting on Friday

Hello everyone!

Let’s thank Charles Stormont for joining us last week to talk about his race for Utah Attorney General. A lot of DL members are huge fans of his, so if you were impressed, consider helping out on his campaign or making a donation to him.

This week we are back to our regular social gathering in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:30 PM until 9:30 PM.

Despite what the flyer and past email have said, the last day to get discounted $35 tickets (and to join the pre-show party with us) at Saturday’s Voyeur has been extended to Thursday, August 7th. After that, any remaining seats are open to the general public and will be at full price. If you are coming, let us know, as well will make sure to have enough food and drinks for you at the pre-party! The performance date is Friday, August 29th.

News

Utah women are substantially likely to make less money than men. Anyone surprised?

The Congressional race to replace Jim Mathesonmay be closer than anyone thought.

The death toll in Gaza is over 1400 dead (mostly civilian) Palestinians and 59 dead, Israelis. While the UN says its humanitarian organizations in Gaza are overwhelmed.

Anyway, on a lighter note, we look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting tomorrow evening!

Drinking Liberally SLC meets from
6:30-9:30 every every Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492

Drinking Liberally with AG candidate Stormont

Happy Pie ‘n Beer Day, Liberals!

167 years ago Mormon pioneers declared the Great Salt Lake valley the place and began settling it. Many of those early pioneers were English, and beer hadn’t been deemed a “strong drink” yet, so they soon began setting up breweries. I think we can drink to that!

This week we’ve got a guest speaker:
Charles Stormont – Democratic candidate for Utah Attorney General will join us. I am sure he will have plenty to say about the Shurtleff/Swallow scandal, and his vow to drop the Kitchen vs Herbert case is pretty great. So if you have good questions, bring em!

Remember, on Friday August 29th, we will have our annual DL Saturday’s Voyeur outing:
Green Room Pre-Party – 6:30
Show – 7:30

See you tomorrow!

Drinking Liberally With Liberal Drinkers Tomorrow!

Join us tomorrow for a very special but totally regular weekly meetup of Salt Lake City’s very own chapter of Drinking Liberally. We will be in our normal gathering place in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State St.) from 6:30 PM until 9:30 PM.

This was a very eventful week with numerous topics to discuss. Former Attorneys General Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow were arrested on 23 separate counts, mostly felonies dealing with their corruption in office. I mean alleged corruption in office.

According to Mark Shurtleff, it is all due to Sim Gill being a big meanie.

Meanwhile our current AG, Sean Reyes, is doing his damnedest to make Utah front and center in the current fight against LGBT equality.

In world news, the Israeli ground assault of Gaza started today. There are currently 240 dead Palestinians, one dead Israeli and a lot of wounded. Regardless of which side you support, the losers are going to be the civilian populations of both Israel and Palestine.

In happier news, on Friday, July 25th we will have our next Guest Speaker:

Charles Stormont – Democratic candidate for Utah Attorney General will join us. I am sure he will have plenty to say about the Shurtleff/Swallow scandal so come with your best questions ready!

Also, on Friday August 29th, we will have our annual DL Saturday’s Voyeur Party & Show:
Green Room Pre-Party – 6:30
Show – 7:30

Preferred seating and discounted tickets: (801) 363-7522

We hope to see everyone at Piper tomorrow!

Drinking Liberally Friday

Another Friday, another chance to meet up with all your liberal friends at Drinking Liberally! Join us tomorrow at the Piper Down from 6:30 – 9:30. As always, there’s plenty in the news to chat about, but today Robert Gehrke and the Salt Lake Tribune uncovered and reported some text conversations between former AG Mark Shurtleff and his former top deputy, Kirk Torgensen. It’s a pretty interesting read.

Save the date for our annual outing to see Saturday’s Voyeur! It will be Friday, August 29th. Our Preshow party will be in the green room at 6:30 PM. Show starts at 7:30 PM.

Everything went up this year, but they are not only giving us the standard group $5 discount, but letting us base it on last year’s prices so tickets are $35!
Call and place your reservations by July 15th for the discount. Remember to mention Drinking Liberally in order to get the discount! (801) 363-7522

See you tomorrow night!

DL Meetup: The Holiday Edition

Hello Festive Liberal Drinkers!

Despite the holiday (erroneously celebrated on the 4th since the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 2nd) we will still have our regular table(s) in the back room at Piper Down (1492 S. State St.) starting at 6:30 PM. though I must confess, if no one shows up I probably won’t stick around all the way until 9:30 PM.

We have plenty to discuss this week. Supreme Court decisions are coming pretty fast. There were a few wins like SCOTUS deciding that a warrant is necessary to search a suspect’s cell phone and a few losses like the decision to side with Hobby Lobby against their female employees’ reproductive health rights. There is also ISIS invading Iraq, escalating violence in Gaza and World Cup mania everywhere. I bet if we sent Tim Howard to Baghdad along with our “military advisers”, he could easily defend the place!

So, swing by either before, during or after your holiday plans and have a drink or two while we have a semi-serious discussion about why we love this country so much. Right before we blow up small portions of it and blanket the sky with heavy layers of gunsmoke that will linger for days.

We also have details on our annual Saturday’s Voyeur event.

It will be Friday, August 29th. Our Preshow party will be in the green room at 6:30 PM. Show starts at 7:30 PM.

Pricing:

Everything went up this year, but they are not only giving us the standard group $5 discount, but letting us base it on last year’s prices!

Theater seating $35 ($45 reg price)

Table tops $40 ($50)

Skytables $45 ($55)

Next year we’ll be paying the new rates.

Call and place your reservations by July 15th for the discount. Remember to mention Drinking Liberally in order to get the discount! (801) 363-7522

Drinking and chatting Liberally

Wow, what a week! There’s so much to talk about at Drinking Liberally this week. Pat Bagley, Jim Debakis, and Joan O’Brien made their way to Washington D.C. to get the attention of congressional lawmakers and the Justice Department in hopes of convincing them that the Joint Operating Agreement between the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News is illegal.

Mormon feminist Kate Kelly was ultimately excommunicated for apostasy, because she dared ask if maybe women shouldn’t be allowed to have the priesthood too. But you know, speaking up isn’t really a woman’s place.

The Utah DABC decided they would let Snowbird have beer at Oktoberfest. Back below the inversion, the Clean Air Panel dies because the state doesn’t want to fund it.

OH, but Utah has plenty of money to spend when it comes to taking Kitchen v. Herbert all the way to the Supreme Court, despite the 10th Circuit Court affirming their belief this week that a ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional (spoiler alert: it is).

And if you want to get a feel for local politics on the other side of the country, Ed Tracey – our Keene, New Hampshire Drinking Liberally host – should be stopping by this Friday. He’s also a regular contributor to Daily Kos, as DL regular Jenn reminded me.

Speaking of Jenn, she’s collecting donations to the Utah Food Bank for her birthday, and you can donate here https://www.utahfoodbank.org/virtual-food?Team=3703

——Save the date———

Our annual outing to see Saturday’s Voyeur will be Fri Aug 28. We have the green room reserved, so if you were planning on going but didn’t know when to go, now you know. We’ll have information for discount tickets shortly, so watch your email.

Whew! I think that’s all. So join us this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down starting at 6:30!

Drinking Liberally Friday

It’s just about Friday, which means it’s time for another round! (of Drinking Liberally)! Join us in the back room of the Piper Down from 6:30-9:30. We’ll be sharing the room with the Progressive Caucus of the Democratic Party, who will be holding a poker tournament fundraiser. Drinking Liberally members are welcome to join; suggested donation is $25 and you’ll get chips when you buy drinks. But if you’re not into that you can join our regular seating and chat about the topics of the day. Like Eric Cantor losing to a Tea Party candidate in the primary. Where have we seen that tactic before?

Or we can talk about the latest mass shooting, and our national reticence to tackle the problem. Or locally, there are two prominent voices in the LDS church who are trying to shake up the system, who are reportedly being excommunicated from said church.

Also it’s worth pointing out that the documentary made about local rabble-rouser Tim DeChristopher, Bidder 70, is now on Netflix. It’s really good, and if you missed Tim speaking at Drinking Liberally or anywhere else, prepare to gain a lot more respect for him when you watch it.

Our annual outing to see Saturday’s Voyeur will be Fri Aug 28. We have the green room reserved, so if you were planning on going but didn’t know when to go, now you know. We’ll have information for discount tickets shortly, so watch your email.
