Drinking Liberally Tri-Cities Chapter Blog

Tonight

Obama vetoes Keystone, Republicans work to shut down Homeland Security, Washington state places the nation's largest tax burden per income on its lowest and middle classes. What else can we talk about this evening? Join us at Isla Bonita at 7:00 PM tonight.

In the news

Our fair community finds itself in the national news this week. What justifies the use of deadly force by the police? By citizens? What is happening to civilization in this country?

Let's talk about it this evening at Isla Bonita restaurant at 7:00 PM.

Snowbound?

Not here in the Tri-Cities. But with New York locked up, maybe the rest of the country can have some peace. Come talk about the weather and other things Tuesday at 7:00 PM at the Isla Bonita restaurant in Richland.

SOTU Tonight

It's State of the Union time again. The speech is scheduled for 6:00 Pacific time. Isla Bonita has a TV in our room and has said that we could watch it there. So some of us will be going early to eat and listen to the good words. We will be talking about it at the regular 7:00 PM hour so feel free to join us.

Exercise your right

We had a good turnout to our Screening Liberally activity and enjoyed an terrific movie, "Selma", on Sunday. What a strong reminder of the battles that have been fought for the fundamental right to vote. Make sure you and your friends honor that struggle by getting registered and by voting. And we will see you Tuesday at 7:00 PM and the Isla Bonita restaurant.

Screening Liberally in TC

We are trying again for the first Tri-Cities "Screening Liberally" this Sunday, January 11h, at 4:00 pm at Carmike Cinemas where we will watch "Selma".

The matinee price is $5.75. If we could meet a little early, we could try and get seats together for those that wish to do this.

Afterwards, we could go grab a bite and drinks close by. Ideas of places close that could accommodate drop-ins at their bar (and not be super noisy) where we could push tables together include PF Changs, Pacific Pasta and Grill, or Famous Daves. Other ideas?

Snow?

No snow. Little wind. It's a good time to drink liberally. See you at Isla Bonita tonight at 7:00.

Movie Event Postponed

Robbie Burns had it right about best-laid plans. Weather reports indicate that we will have snow and potentially freezing rain the rest of the day.

We are postponing the Watching Liberally event for today until maybe next week.

Please respect the weather and be safe.

Watching Liberally Reminder

This is just remind you that the first Tri-Cities "Watching Liberally" is this Sunday, January 4th, at 4:00 pm at Carmike Cinemas where we will watch "Unbroken". "Angelina Jolie directs this true-life tale of Louis Zamperini, the Olympic track star who survived a plane crash in World War II, only to fight for his life against nature and eventually as a prisoner of war. Joel and Ethan Coen provide the script." This movie is getting really high marks. Graphic war scenes.

The matinee price is $5.75. If we could meet a little early, we could try and get seats together for those that wish to do this.

Afterwards, we will go to Pacific Pasta and Grill. If you click on the link below, they have a great coupon going for $10, which gets you $20 in food and drinks (including wine and beer). Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available.
