Decompress at Drinking Liberally July 13th
We can be proud of much of our country, including the growing number who are resisting and fighting against the disturbing behavior of one who has no respect for his office, our country, and democracy.
So we must continue to push back and resist. Between all your action and activism, do take a few minutes to decompress a bit this upcoming Thursday July 13th at 6pm at DRINKING LIBERALLY at Carlos Miguel's in Highlands Ranch. Last meeting we once again had a fantastic turnout, with plenty of great conversation.
Updated Announcement: We will also be having our first ever Summer Party coming up in a month in Roxborough Park. Tentatively it's planned for August 5th. Stay tuned for updates.
Of course, I hope you can make it to Drinking Liberally on the 13th. And Remember to Bring A Friend! Cheers
