Wow! What a turn out last time. Thank you to all of you who came out to Drinking Liberally – over 25 people! I certainly hope to see more of you at Drinking Liberally this Thursday Feb 23 at 6pm at Carlos Miguel's.

Several of you also expressed interest in finding out more about how and where you could join folks and become more active in these precipitous times. I'm hoping to be able to provide you with more information on local groups organizing against Trump and his cronies. Usually the best way to find out is to come to Drinking Liberally and meet others with the same interest (and have a good time in the meantime.) 

So come and join the conversation, find out more of what's going on locally, and share the camaraderie. And if you want, enjoy a drink and some food. And remember to Bring A Friend!
