November DL meeting...Party!

Dear Drinking Liberally Vancouver,

The meeting last week at the Back Alley Bar and Grill went well. There was a good crowd, and the service was wonderful (as were the fries!). We decided that for November only, we would meet the first Tuesday of the month instead of the second. That makes our next meeting on Election Day, November 4. The bar's owner says we can have the big screen TV on and surround sound going. Mark your calendars now! Bring any interested party...no need to be on the mailing list.

If you're looking for something to do to help before November 4, contact Den at 360sunshine@comcast.net. She's organizing a letter writing campaign, contacting undecided voters in battle ground states, giving more info to help them make up their minds.

If letter writing isn't your thing, you can also contact the Obama headquarters here in Vancouver. They're looking for help making phone calls or canvassing. You can call them at 892-6052 or drop by the office at 10621 Coxley Drive, Suite 103.

And...we found some folks to take over hosting, so it looks like Drinking Liberally will continue past the election. Hoorah!

See you on Election night! (and a reminder email will be coming the weekend before, as usual).

Kathy, Matthew, Reg, Alice

Drinking Liberally Tuesday evening!

One last reminder that we switched venues for our monthly meeting. Please meet us Tuesday night, 7:00, at the Back Alley Bar and Grill, 6503 E. Mill Plain. It's just west of the Safeway on Mill Plain and Andresen, in a little strip mall on the south side of Mill Plain.

See you there,

Kathy, Matthew, Reg, Alice

Drinking Liberally this Tuesday...at a new location!

Fellow DL'ers,

Thanks for all of your input on new venues. Special thanks go to Craig, who in the name of research, checked out several bars for us. ;-) While there was no clear consensus, the Back Alley Bar and Grill had the edge. It received a couple more votes, and the fact that it is more centrally located in Vancouver is a big plus. So...

We will meet this Tuesday at the Back Alley Bar and Grill, located at 6503 E. Mill Plain. It's located west of Andresen, about 1/2 block west of Safeway, in a strip mall on the south side of Mill Plain. The time stays the same, so plan on joining us about 7:00 on Tuesday.

If we decide it's not right for us, we can try someplace else next month.

So, what's on the agenda for Tuesday? The presidential election will be a topic, I'm sure. The vitriol seen at some of the GOP's rallies, with McCain and/or Palin is pretty scary, don't you think? Is it possible that Rossi and Gregoire are TIED in the polls? Really? We can take a poll and see if any of us have actually opened our financial statements this month.

Finally, we have been hosting for 2 years and it is time to pass on the Vancouver Drinking Liberally hosting duties. The November meeting will be our last one, unless we get one or two of you to take over. You can be as active or as laid back as you like. Basically, hosting involves check-ins with the national team once a month and sending emails before meetings. You can respond to this email if you're interested, or talk to us in person on Tuesday.

Look for me (Kathy) holding down a table at the Back Alley Bar and Grill, Tuesday. I'll try to have some Drinking Liberally flyers on the table so you can locate us.
