Happy birthday to us! We've come a long way since the dark days of 2005, and we are glad you are still here.
DFW's longest continuously running chapter of Drinking Liberally meets once again this Tuesday starting at 5:30pm at The Londoner in Addison.
Join us in the non smoking room for liberal libations and liberal conversation.
For those that may be new, you can always ask a server where we are or look for our table with the trifold DL bottle logo on it.
If you are a Facebook user, make sure you've joined both our Drinking Liberally Addison group and liked our page so you can keep up with the new liberal friends you meet locally.
If you haven't purchased the new book from Living Liberally's founder Justin Krebs, be sure to check out "Blue in a Red State" which features stories from chapter hosts around the country, including our own from the Mid Cities and Addison!

Drinking Liberally Addison will be meeting Tuesday May 31st at The Londoner.
We had planned to switch to 4th Tuesdays, but with the extra Tuesday in the month, the calendar and event invites got thrown off. So we'll stick with the special 5th!

DL Addison will not be meeting tonight. Instead we have moved our meeting this month to April 26th at 5:30pm at The Londoner. Please join us for some post primary liberal chat.
We're also putting out a call to one or more of our regular attendees to become a chapter host! John has been the founding host of the Addison chapter for almost 11 years, and we have had some other co-hosts along the way. But we have not had any in a few years.
To become a host, you merely need to be willing to be involved with as much involvement as you want to put into it. It could be that you just make sure you or the other host is able to attend our monthly meeting. It could be that you help send these emails or admin our Facebook page and group. It could be you help set up special movie nights, debate watch parties, etc. And as a host, you can attend an annual weekend conference with hosts from around the country to socialize and share best practices (this year is in Philadelphia!)
What you won't do as a host? Don't endorse political candidates with the Living Liberally name (we are not a PAC so we can not). And in general, don't be *that* guy(or gal). You all know *that* guy and you don't like him/her.
Just be awesome. Inquire within if you want to be an awesome co-host.

Drinking Liberally Addison Debate Watch Party is tonight.
The 1st 5 new attendees to our group tonight will receive a door prize just for showing up, courtesy of Living Liberally and our partners.
The debate starts at 7:30, but we will be at The Londoner starting at 5:30. We have both the patio and the adjacent non smoking room reserved for us.
I hope everyone who signed up can make it. If not, we hope to see you again in the future every 2nd Tuesday at The Londoner.
P.S. We do not endorse candidates, however welcome any candidate to speak to those in attendance or distribute literature. We were provided a limited supply of swag from the Bernie campaign, so get there early if you want it.

Our host John will be back from Cincinnati with some cool DL swag to give away as prizes. We will also be watching the first Democratic Party debate of the year on the patio!
Tuesday October 13th starting at 5:30pm until ?? at The Londoner in Addison.
We know many of you do not have Facebook but if you do we ask that you RSVP YES if you are attending on the event page https://www.facebook.com/events/979849028738746/
We'd like to give The Londoner's manager a close count on how many we might have attending. It's only fair to the venue and increased your changes of good service without the staff being overwhelmed. Thanks!!
