Drinking Liberally Wednesday Night

My apologies for the late reminder, but Drinking Liberally will be meeting at the usual place at the usual time. As a refresher, the usual place is the Grafton at 4530 N Lincoln Ave and we'll get things started at 7:00. Last time we were there they rearranged the layout of the back room a bit, so look for us on the couch in front of the fireplace in the back room.

Also, we will be hosting a State of the Union viewing party on Tuesday, February 12th. We'll be metting at our alternate location, The Irish Oak, located in Wrigleyville at 3511 N Clark St. We'll get the event started at our usual time, 7:00 and the speech should begin at 8:00.

Hope to see you at both events!

With the holidays and people travelling, we'll be skipping this week's drinking liberally. Our next meeting will be Wednesday the 16th. Hope to see you then!

The Last Drinking Liberally of 2012 (or maybe ever)

Hey everybody, just a quick reminder that Drinking Liberally will be meeting this Wednesday at the usual spot and time. So that means 7:00PM at the Grafton, which is located at 4530 North Lincoln Avenue. We meet in the back room and we'll be at the back table to the left of the fireplace.

If it turns out that the world hasn't ended by this weekend, then we'll be meeting again in January. There should be a lot to talk about this week given the news of late.

Drinking Liberally's Back

After a brief hiatus after the election and Thanksgiving, Drinking Liberally is back. We'll be meeting back at the Grafton this time. The Grafton is located at 4530 North Lincoln Avenue.

We'll kick things off on Wednesday night at 7:00. It will be our first meeting since the election, so plenty to talk about with that and, of course, the FISCAL CLIFF!!!!!

We'll be meeting in the back room at our usual spot (table to the left of the fireplace). Hope to see you there!

No Drinking Liberally This Wednesday

Just a quick note that Drinking Liberally will not be meeting this Wednesday due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We'll reconvene in December. Hope you all have a good holiday!

Drinking Liberally Election Night Party

Just a quick reminder that we'll be meeting up at the Irish Oak tomorrow night to watch the election results roll in. We'll be in the back room again and the Oak is located at 3511 N. Clark, just a bit south of Wrigley field. We'll be kicking things off at 6:00 so hope to see you there!

Election Night With Drinking Liberally

Hey Chicago DL'ers! We announced this at the last couple of debate watch parties, but I wanted to make sure everybody knew that we are hosting an election night party at the Irish Oak. We'll be kicking things off a little earlier this time, 6:00, and then we'll go until we know who won... or the bar closes... or we just get tired of waiting to find out.

Anyhow, the event will be at the Irish Oak in the back room again which is located at 3511 N. Clark, just a bit south of Wrigley field. I'm told that the Obama campaign is bussing GOTV volunteers to/from Wrigley on election day, so if you're joining them, you should swing by the Oak for a drink. If you're not joining them, you're out of excuses, so come on out :)

Drinking Liberally Debate Party #4

This Monday night, 10/22, will be the fourth and final debate of the 2012 Presidential Election. The debate will be focussed on foreign policy and will be in the more traditional debate format. It will be hosted by Bob schieffer some come on by and find out if Schiefer will follow Crowley and Raddatz, being a strong and fair moderator, or will he get walked on like Lehrer.

We'll be meeting at The Irish Oak once again, which is located in Wrigleyville at 3511 North Clark Street, just a little south of Addison. Hope to see you there!

Also, we will be holding an election night party at the Irish Oak as well. I shouldn't have to tell you the date, but just in case, it's November 6th. We'll be kicking things off at 6PM. Hopefully we'll know who the next President is before the bar closes :)

Drinking Liberally Debate Party #3

In the marathon of debates, we're now onto the third which features a town hall setting. We'll be meeting tomorrow night (Tuesday) at the Irish Oak with the event starting at 7:00. The town hall itself starts at 8:00.

Also, we will be co-hosting the event with the authors of the book, Lyin' Cheatin' Bastards. They will be officially launching their book and they will have copies available for purchase. Better yet, if you buy a book, you will get a ticket for a FREE DRINK!

Since this event is being promoted by the book's authors as well I would highly recommend getting there early if you want to have a seat for the debate.

Will Obama recover from his first performance? Will Romney continue to gain ground? Will Biden swoop down from the rafters of the auditorium, batman style, to call Romney out on his malarkey? Stop on by and find out with the rest of us!

And if you've not yet made it out to the debates, The Irish Oak is located in Wrigleyville at 3511 North Clark Street, just a little south of Addison. Hope to see you there!
