Drinking Liberally Essential Consultants Edition (5/15)

Hey everybody! We'll be meeting for Drinking Liberally this Tuesday at 7:00PM at our usual spot, O'shaughnessy's Public House, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. We meet in the back room at the high top tables located to your left as you enter.

This week, we'll of course be talking about all of the areas of expertise that Cohen's consulting services covered. Then after that first 5 seconds, we'll get to the rest of the news! Hope to see you there!

Drinking Liberally Roast the POTUS Edition (5/1)

Sorry for the late notice, but yes, we will in fact be holding Drinking Liberally tonight! We'll be meeting at O'shaughnessy's, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood, and we will meet in the back room starting at 7:00.

This week there's lots to talk about. There's the possibility of North Korean peace and Trump trying to take credit for it. Trump extended tariff exemptions for key allies, but did so at the last minute to encourage them all suck up to him as much as possible. Then of course there was that fine roasting of Trump that got everybody in DC in an uproar.

Hope to see you there!

Drinking Liberally "Cohen Might Have Tapes" Edition

Hey everybody! This is your regular reminder that we'll be meeting for Drinking Liberally, this Tuesday (4/17) at 7:00PM. We'll be at our usual place, O'shaughessy's Public House, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. We meet at the high top tables to your right as you enter the back room.

This week we of course we have the usual laundry list of Trumpness to discuss. There's Comey's book release, and of course Trump's lawyer, Cohen, is in trouble. Maybe Trump will fire somebody between now and when we meet, but he usually saves those for Friday afternoon tweet storms.

Hope to see you there!

Drinking Liberally is TONIGHT! (4/3)

My apologies for the late email but I'm traveling for work and forgot to send this out. Anyhow after a long hiatus Drinking Liberally is definitely happening tonight with Brian acting as our special guest host!

We're two weeks out from the Illinois primary and we know what we're facing now. So there should be plenty to talk about around the primaries and what's happening as we head to November.

Of course there's always Trump's latest insanity. Maybe he fired somebody? Maybe they resigned? Who knows, depends on who you ask and when you ask them.

No Drinking Liberally This Tuesday

Unfortunately we will not be having Drinking Liberally this Tuesday night. Normally we like to have an election night event but we are busy with the election itself and won't be able to host.

Check out the Facebook group if you're looking for other options. As we hear about possible other events, we'll post there.

My apologies for the late notice but Drinking Liberally will not be meeting tonight. Our next schedule meeting is PRIMARY DAY! We'll send out more details shortly about our plans for that important night in Chicago.

Drinking Liberally Not My President's Day Edition 2/20

This is your regular reminder that Drinking Liberally will be meeting this Tuesday at 7:00PM at O'shaugnhessy's Public House. It's located at 4557 N. Ravenswood Ave. and is not too far from the Damen and Montrose brown line stops. We meet in the back room at the high top tables to your left as you enter the back.

Once again it feels like there's been a year's worth of news since our last meeting, but the latest of course is yet another school shooting. Then of course there's more Russia investigation indictments to keep giving us hope that Trump's Presidency will end early.

Also, a reminder that the primaries in Chicago are on March 20th and early voting starts this Wednesday, the 21st. There are several critical races this year and getting out the vote is the only way we can make sure we get good liberals in office.

No Drinking Liberally This Tuesday

Seeing as we met last week to subject ourselves to the State of the Union, we will not be meeting this Tuesday. Our next event will be Tuesday February 20th. Hope to see you there!

Drinking Liberally SOTU Watch Party 2018

They say that misery loves company, so on Tuesday, January 30th, Chicago Drinking Liberally will be meeting to watch Donald Trump give his first State of the Union speech. If ever there was a good reason to get together with fellow liberals and drink, it is having to subject ourselves to that speech.

We'll be meeting started at 7:00 and the debate starts at 8:00. We'll have the sound on. We'll try to come up with some fun games to distract us from it.

As usual, we'll be in the back room of O'shaughnessy's Public House located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. It's conveniently located near the Damen and Montrose brown lines, as well as the Ravenswood Metra stop.

Hope to see you there!
