Drinking Liberally Olympia Chapter Blog

Get warmed up with some hot Drinking Liberally discussion!

Hello Drinking Liberally Olympia,

Tomorrow marks the last Drinking Liberally get together for 2008. It's been a great year -- DL wise and for democrats! Tomorrow night let's take some time to remember defining 2008 moments. There are lots of them!

So even though we are all busy with holiday celebrations and preparations, I hope you can spend an evening with your fellow DL'ers.

We meet at Bally Hoo's Irish Pub and Restaurant in Tumwater, at 7 pm. I hope to see you there.

Happy Holidays and a joyous 2009 to all!

Drinking Liberally Monday, November 17th

Hello Drinking Liberally Olympia,

This is your friendly DL Olympia meeting reminder for this coming Monday, November 17th at Bally Hoo's Irish Pub in Tumwater. The fun starts at 7 pm.

There's much to talk about, including sharing our election night memories, and what the political future might hold for us. I hope you can join us!

At our last meeting, we predicted the results of the presidential election and the electoral college votes. Congratulations goes out to Kathy, who was almost perfect, missing the actual total by just one vote.

You can view the results at the Issues of the moment blog:

Hope to see you Monday night!

It's time! The final DL Olympia meeting before the election!

Hello Drinking Liberally Olympia,

It's going to be a great week! Tomorrow, we gather for a Drinking Liberally Pep Rally! On Tuesday, I am confident that we will elect a Democratic tidal wave the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime.

DRINKING LIBERALLY TOMORROW NIGHT:
Drop by Bally Hoo's Irish Restaurant and Pub tomorrow night at 7 pm for our regular -- but always outstanding -- Drinking Liberally get together. Look for us in the back of the restaurant.

What's on tap? Besides the always great beer, plan on participating in the Electoral College Sweepstakes! We will note everybody's prediction for the number of electoral college votes cast for Obama (and McCain, too, I guess). Whoever comes closest will get.....bragging rights! By the way, 537 electoral college votes are up for grabs.

VOTE
And I'm sure I don't need to remind you to vote, because most of you already have. There are ballot drop boxes all around the Olympia area, so I recommend you use one of them!

OBAMA MUSIC VIDEO
If you are not all politicked out, check out a great music video on YouTube:

Hope to see you tomorrow night at Bally Hoo's!

ELECTION EVENTS??

I had a few inquiries about a DL get-together on Tuesday night, but after checking with the "regulars," it appears other commitments and events have already been scheduled.

However, if you are interested in joining an election event, some of our in-the-know email list members may be able to help. Check the Drinking Liberally Issues of the Moment blog, and post a comment where an interested progressive can join in an election night festivity. Here is the direct link:

Drinking Liberally Meeting Tomorrow Night, October 20th

Hello Drinking Liberally Olympia,

This is your friendly reminder that DL Olympia will once again convene for political discussion and fellowship tomorrow night, October 20th, 7 pm at the Bally Hoo Irish Pub & Restaurant in Tumwater.

There is lots to talk about. We are at a nexus in the campaigns -- nationally, state-wide, and locally. We are seeing and hearing about campaign strategies and tactics that are astonishingly negative and positive.

I will enjoy seeing many of you tomorrow night -- I hope to see you there!
