Drinking Liberally: Tax "Cuts" and Perp Walks Edition

It's been another quiet couple of weeks in politics, and so let's get together again to have a few drinks, and catch up on what's going on. We'll be meeting at our usual spot, O'shaughnessy's, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood Ave. We meet in the back room at the high top tables, to your left as you enter. We'll get thing started at 7:00PM.

So this week Republicans passed a "tax cut" which is a tax increase for many of us, a gutting of medicare, an increase in the deficit, and so much more. In the meantime, Mueller keeps marching along, getting Mike Flynn to flip. Odds are favorable that this will get enough evidence to put at least Kushner and maybe Trump in trouble.

No Drinking Liberally This Week

With the thanksgiving holiday and many people travelling, there will not be a drinking liberally this week. Our next get together will be on December 5th.

Drinking Liberally Indictments Edition (11/7)

Hey everybody! We'll be meeting up again for Drinking Liberally this Tuesday, 11/7 at 7:00PM. We'll be meeting at O'shaughnessy's as usual, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. We'll meet in the back room at the high top tables to your left as you enter. If you can't find us, just ask the staff!

Also, we are looking at the possibility of a 10th anniversary celebration of our Drinking Liberally chapter. We have a tentative date of Friday, November 17th, but we'll send out confirmation once we know we'll have room at the bar.

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!
