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!

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!

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.
