Chicago sketch comedy troupe The Accountants of Homeland Security has a 20-year record of producing sharp, timely political comedy. Spurred into action by the Trump administration's antics, this is the group's first full-length sketch comedy show since the George W. Bush years. For two nights only, The Accountants Of Homeland Security return to perform a full progressive political sketch comedy revue, The Final Final Countdown.

The Accountants of Homeland Security previously hosted Laughing Liberally Chicago, a long-running, critically acclaimed variety show with a progressive bent at the No Exit Cafe.

Hope to see you there!

A Very Special Drinking Liberally Survey!

First, this is your weekly reminder that we'll be meeting for Drinking Liberally, this Tuesday (6/20) at our usual watering hole, O'shaughnessy's Public House. It is located at 4557 N. Ravenswood, and we start our gatherings at 7:00PM.

We meet in the back room at the high top tables, though weather permitting we will sometimes meet outside. If you don't see us, ask the bar staff and they can point you in the right direction.

Now that we've got that out of the way, would you like to take a survey?

We're looking at reaching out to candidates for office in the area to meet us and talk about the issues. To help us with that, we need to hear from you to gauge your level of interest. It will be much easier to get somebody to show up and talk with us if they know there will be a good crowd to meet them.

So please fill out the survey and let us know what you think. Thanks for reading this far, we now return you to your Trump presidency, already in regress.

Unofficial Event: WOKE at O'shaugnessy's (6/13)

A heads up that O'shaugnessy's is hosting a politically themed cocktail hour next Tuesday in cooperation with Women Organizing for Knowledge and Empowerment (WOKE).

The event is Tuesday 6/13 and starts at 5:30. They'll be making an array of politically themed cocktails. This isn't an official Drinking Liberally event, but sounds like something many of us would enjoy.

If you have questions, please contact them at (773)944-9896

Drinking Liberally: World Tour Edition (6/6)

This is your usual reminder that we'll be meeting for Drinking Liberally this Tuesday at 7:00PM at O'shaugnessy's.

O'shaugnessy's is located at 4557 N. Ravenswood, and we usually meet in the back room at the high top tables. However, with the nicer weather there's some chance we'll meet outside, so if you don't see us, ask and the staff will point you in the right direction.

Another two weeks of the Trump administration has passed even if it feels like 47 years. Trump had his world wide trip that he decided to cap off with pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. An agreement that not even Exxon thought pulling out made any sense.

I'm sure that before I finish typing this email will have some new revelation about what Trump screwed up most recently, but I'll leave you with that for now. Hope to see you tomorrow night!

Drinking Liberally: Comey and Cocktails Edition (5/16)

It's time again for another drinking liberally. We'll be meeting up at our usual place, O'shaugnessy's Public House, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. We'll get things started at 7:00PM.

Normally we sit in the back room of the bar at the high top tables located on your left. It's supposed to be really nice weather today though so we may end up outside. If you ask one of the staff they can point you in the right direction if you can't find us.

There's a lot to talk about with Trump's reenactment of the Saturday Night Massacre. With the way the news cycle's been lately, I'm not even sure that will be the most interesting thing to talk about.

So come on out, enjoy a cocktail or a pint, and hang out with some fellow liberals!

Drinking Liberally Tonight, Tuesday May 2nd!

Sorry for the belated reminder, whoops! DL will be tonight, Tuesday, May 2nd at 7:00pm at O'Shaughnessey's located at 4557 N Ravenswood Ave and is a short walk from the Damen Brown Line stop.

Also, if you haven't joined it yet, the Facebook group is located here:

The Mother of All Drinking Liberallys (4/18)

It's that time again, where we get together for our liberal happy hour and talk about what's going on in politics. We'll be meeting at our usual location, O'shaugnessy's Public House, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. We will meet in the back room at the high top tables as you enter the room. We'll get things started at 7:00PM.

This week the hot topic is likely to be the use of our military. We had the first use of the MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) in Afghanistan, cruise missile strikes in Syria, and tensions growing on the Korean Peninsula. It's almost enough to distract us from the fact that Trump still hasn't released his taxes, but not quite.

Hope to see you there!

Drinking Liberally Cancelled 4/4

Drinking Liberally will not be happening this week. Our next meeting will be on April 18th.

Drinking Liberally 3/21

This is your regular reminder that we'll be meeting for Drinking Liberally, Tuesday night 3/21 at 7:00 pm. We'll be at O'shaugnessy's Public House located at 4557 N. Ravesnwood. We meet in the back room at the high top tables on the left as you enter.

It's been another two weeks of the Trump administration which always ends up feeling like months instead. The gutting of health care got started and then imploded. Trump's budget proposal is an atrocity. So there's lots to talk about and drink about this week.
