Salt Lake City Drinking Liberally

Promoting democracy in Utah one pint at a time.

Tomorrow’s DL Agenda

Join us tomorrow evening, Friday, October 17th, for our regularly scheduled gathering in the back bar at Piper Down (1492 S. State St.) we will be there from 6:30-9:30 PM.

Save the date for the Drinking Liberally candidate night coming up next week on October 24th. We’re still confirming candidates so it will be a surprise!

NEWS to Discuss

This week, Utah made national news again when outspoken feminist and gamer status quo adversary, Anita Sarkeesian, had to cancel a scheduled speaking engagement at USU amid detailed threats of mass-murder. She didn’t want guns allowed into the venue seeing as how she was just threatened with murder by someone claiming to possess multiple firearms. But Utah law explicitly forbids a University from restricting guns on campus. Our Utah Legislator, Curt Oda, believes Sarkeesian is “overreacting” and he defends our current laws. I guess not everyone can be as tough as Curt is when he deals with frequent threats to rape and murder him.

If you want to learn more about these losers campaigning against feminism in games read here, if you wish to see misogyny flourishing in anonymity, read any comments section on any of these linked articles.

In other news, the Dems actually got a bit uncharacteristically tough in this campaign ad essentially blaming Republicans for Ebola. What do you think about it?

In Syria, we are bombing ISIS in Kobani, while our allies bomb our other allies who are some of the only people willing to fight ISIS on the ground. Simple, right?

On that note, Keep an eye out for our guest speakers next week. With the midterm elections looming we are looking forward to getting a few more candidates to join us! We hope to seeing everyone tomorrow!

10/10 Drinking Liberally

Can we talk about how same sex marriages are now legal in Utah??? I’m sure we will at Drinking Liberally this Friday at Piper Down starting at 6:30, because it’s a pretty damn big deal. I mean, Utah! And other states too, of course. And I guess there will be other things to talk about too.

Save the date for the Drinking Liberally candidate night coming up on October 24th. We’re still confirming candidates, but you know it’ll be fun. And hopefully by the end of the night you’ll be as excited for the guest candidates as Gov. Herbert is for Mia Love.

See you Friday!

Jason, Casey,
Christian, Kelly Jo

DL Meetup This Friday!

It’s time once again for Drinking Liberally. Join us this Friday at 6:30 PM in the back room of the Piper Down (1492 S. State St.), where we will talk about the issues of the week.

We may talk about how Mittens is moving back to Utah even though he is totally, (probably) not thinking about running for President for a third time.

Or we will talk about any of the cases SCOTUS has decided to take this session. Unfortunately, a marriage equality case is not currently on the list.

We could even talk about our war with ISIS. I mean Khorasan.

I must confess, as an expert in modern Middle East history and politics I was a bit taken aback that I had never heard of them until a couple of weeks ago. Glenn Greenwald (yes, that Edward Snowden guy) does an excellent job of explaining why none of us have previously heard of them here.

Keep an eye out for guest speakers in the next few weeks. With the midterm elections looming we are working on getting a few more candidates to join us soon. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

It’s Drinking Liberally Time!

Hello everyone!

Its that special time of the week when we remind you of our impending DL meetup, so join us tomorrow, September 19th from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM, in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State St.)

There is a lot to talk about this week! We should know by then how the Scottish vote for independence went. I suspect there will either be a bunch of people in kilts celebrating or a bunch of people in kilts sobbing into their peat moss beers. Either way, democracy and self-determination in action is exciting!

We are at war again in the Middle East. Or not . It depends on which audience Secretary Kerry is speaking to.

But this time we have double super-secret Arab allies willing to do the heavy lifting. All we have to do is bomb the enemy with airstrikes and drones and put no “boots on the ground” since the 1700 soldiers already deployed apparently must not wear boots.

If Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, etc. has taught us anything, it is that the civilian population loves it when an American guy in a trailer, in the Nevada desert, on the far side of the world, blows up their village in order to kill a suspected terrorist.

On a lighter note, Sen. Lindsey Graham does his best get his picture in the dictionary under ‘hyperbole’. Or he is correct and we are all going to die!

Which is a good reason to join us for a drink, just in case, before ISIS comes to slaughter us all. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow, its the first Drinking Liberally Meetup of our New Middle East War! We can celebrate like it is 2002! Someone should make a tee shirt…

Drinking Liberally time!

It’s time once again for Drinking Liberally. Join us this Friday in the back room of the Piper Down, where we’ll be talking about the big issues of the day. And boy, are there some big issues.

From our engagement in Iraq and Syria to attempt to nip ISIS in the bud, to the petitions for writs of certiorari on the Kitchen v Herbert case and other same sex marriage cases, to Shurtleff’s request that the FBI cough up all the dirt they have on him, it’s been a busy week.

See you at Piper Down starting at 6:30!

After a Brief Hiatus, it is DL Time Again!

Hello everyone! We hope you got the chance to enjoy Saturday’s Voyeur with us last week!

Take a break from Comic Con and join us tomorrow evening at 6:30 PM, Friday, September 5th, for our regularly scheduled gathering in the back bar at Piper Down (1492 S. State St.) If you remind me, I will tell you all about our Attorney General’s participation on a Star Wars Ep. VII panel at comic con despite knowing nothing about the topic. Bonus points awarded to whoever can come up with the best hypothetical question to ask him. Right now, Alex is in the lead with, “General Grevious, I mean Reyes, who is the better Sith: Swallow or Shurtliff? Why?”

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Oh my heck, this Friday is our annual outing to see Saturday’s Voyeur! So hopefully you’ve got your tickets and will be joining us tomorrow.

We’ve got the green room downstairs reserved for a little pre-show party at 6:30, and the show starts at 7:30. Laura is bringing beer, wine, plenty of booze-laden punch, and a dish to share. And if you’re feeling so inclined, bring a dish to share too. Drinks and food are allowed in the theater as well.

And if we don’t see you at Saturday’s Voyeur, we’ll see you next week for our usual Drinking Liberally at the Piper Down!
