Drinking Liberally Chicago Chapter Blog

Drinking Liberally/TYT This Tuesday (10/17)

Hey everybody! Just one last reminder that we'll be having a special DL meeting tomorrow night where we'll be joined by the local Young Turks group. We'll get the event started at 7:00 and we'll be meeting at our usual spot, O'shaugnessy's Public House, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood.

Also, the 10th anniversary of our Drinking Liberally chapter is coming up in November. So we're looking at plans for a special event to celebrate this. No details as of yet, but we'll follow up soon once we have that ironed out.

Drinking Liberally - TYT in the House Edition

This coming Tuesday (10/18) we will be having a special Drinking Liberally with the members of Chicago's TYT group joining us. So come on out for a fun evening of progressive politics and, of course, adult beverages.

We'll be meeting at our usual spot, O'shaughnessy's Public House, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. We meet in the back bar area at the high top tables to your left as you enter the back. We'll get the event started at 7PM!

We'll have plenty to talk about I'm sure. I'd run through some possibilities, but in the era of Trump, who knows what will happen between now and Tuesday. Hope to see you there!

Drinking Liberally Gun Control Edition

Apologies for the late notice, but yes, we are having Drinking Liberally Tuesday night. We'll be meeting at our usual time, 7:00, at our usual place, O'shaugnessy's Public House. Our home is located at 4557 N. Ravenswood Ave, and we typically meet in the back room at the high top tables.

This week the obvious news is the mass shooting in Las Vegas. It seems that 2017 is saying "hold my beer" to 2016 with that plus, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tensions with North Korea.

At least we can still drink liberally!

Drinking Liberally Tomorrow (9/19)

Hey everybody! We'll be meeting tomorrow night at our regular time, 7:00PM, and at our regular place, O'shaughnessy's Public House. The bar is located at 4557 N. Ravenswood, and we usually meet in the back room at the high top tables.

Hope to see you there!

No Drinking Liberally Tonight

Just a quick reminder that we are not meeting for DL tonight. We shifted the schedule to meet last week so we could send Maya off properly. Our next meeting will be on 9/19.

Drinking Liberally Special Event: Farewell Maya!

While normally Drinking Liberally would not be meeting this week, our regular waitress Maya, is moving on from O'shaughnessy's and we rescheduled to give her a proper send off. So this Tuesday, 8/29, we will be meeting at 7:00 PM.

O'shaughnessy's is located at 4557 N. Ravenswood and we usually meet in the back room at the high top tables. Weather dependent we might meet outside, so if you don't see us, ask the staff and they can point you our direction.

Also, this is a schedule shift, so we will not be meeting on September 5th. So the next meeting after this week will be on 9/19.

Drinking Liberally Plans This Week

There's going to be a change of plans for Drinking Liberally this week. During our usual meeting time, Ameya Pawar, candidate for Governor and alderman of the ward where we host DL, is holding a rally at the Dank House in Lincoln Square. I'm a volunteer for his campaign and I'm going to the event, so we will not be having Drinking Liberally this week.

However if you're interested in joining me, I figured it would be a good event for embracing the "liberally" side of our name. Then after the event we might go get drinks and a bite somewhere. The event runs from 6PM-8PM.

You can find the event details here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ameya-pawar-northside-rally-tickets-36983859720?aff=ebapi

It's a free event, but they ask that you RSVP. If you're so inclined, I'll see you there, otherwise, our next meeting is September 5th!

Drinking Librerally: Easy Come Easy Go Edition

It's once again time to Drink Liberally. Tuesday August 1st, we'll be meeting at O'shaughnessy's Public House starting at 7:00 PM. O'shaughnessy's Public House is located at 4557 N. Ravenswood and we usually meet in the back room at the high top tables. Weather permitting we may meet outside, so if you don't see us, just ask one of the people who works at the bar, they'll know where to find us.

I'd talk about what we might discuss tomorrow, but frankly the odds are too high that the hot topic of the day will change by then. We might talk about who was hired or fired from the White House that day. Heck it might be the same person hired and then fired in one day at this rate. We could talk about health care which, as of this email, is safe, but by tomorrow, who knows?!

So come on out and join the rest of us as together we ride the roller coaster that is the Trump administration.

Correction: July 18th!

Sorry, for the confusion, the meeting is Tuesday July 18th

Drinking Liberally: McConnell Care Edition

Hey everybody! It's time for your usual reminder that Drinking Liberally will be meeting tomorrow night, Tuesday July 17th at O'shaugnessy's Public House. They are located at 4557 N. Ravenswood and we'll most likely be meeting outside with the forecast looking sunny. If you don't see us outside, we'll be at the high top tables in the back room of the bar.

We will be getting things started at 7:00 and there's once again plenty to talk about. McConnel is continuing to try work on his tax cuts disguised as health care reform. Donald J. Trump Jr (aka Fredo) is busy tweeting out incriminating emails. Also, this will be the first meeting of Drinking Liberally in almost two years where the Illinois has an actual budget!

So come on out, raise a glass, and drink liberally with us!
