Sorry for the late notice, but I'm under the weather, and the weather itself isn't much better. So no Drinking Liberally tonight.

Hey Everybody, it's your usual reminder for the usual DL meeting at the usual time at what is currently the usual place. In other words, we'll be meeting tomorrow night at the Irish Oak at 7:00 pm. We've generally been meeting in the front area, so look for us there and if anything changes I'll update the twitter @dl_chicago.
The Irish Oak is located at 3511 N. Clark and is convenient to the Addison Red Line stop.
We'll probably be discussing the debt ceiling and our plans for the apocalypse that would follow us crashing into it. We might even http://drunkdialcongress.org/.
Hope to see you there!

Hey Everybody! We will be meeting at the usual time at the usual place. For those who haven't come out for an event before, that's 7:00 PM at the Irish Oak located at 3511 N. Clark St.
This past weekend was the annual Drinking Liberally leadership conference so I have a fresh supply of buttons. I also picked up a few copies of the Drinking Liberally book "10 Years in Poetry" that we'll be giving away in the near future during some contest to be named later.
Hope to see you there!

Now that Cubs season has concluded (and in the fashion it usually tends to conclude: badly), we will be hosting Drinking Liberally at the Irish Oak. We'll be meeting at 7:00 PM and the Oak is located at 3511 N. Clark. We'll be meeting in the front room and we'll probably gather in the area around the bar. I'll tweet at @dl_chicago once I get there and know where we'll be.
The Oak does specials on Tuesday nights so looks like $3 drafts and a wings special are lined up for us.
This is the location we'll be meeting at until next spring when the Cubs get started again. Hope to see you there!

Hey Everybody! I wanted to let you know about an event coming up that involves some fellow members of Drinking Liberally. A documentary, "The Muslims are Coming," about Muslim comedians will be premiering in Chicago this Thursday night, September 12th, at 8:00 PM at the Gene Siskel Film Center.
For more information about the movie, check this out:
If you want tickets, you can go here:
Negin Farsad, a member of Drinking Liberally and one of the creators of the film will be on hand for a Q&A session after the screening.

Hey everybody! Matt Filipowicz, former fearless leader of our very own Chicago chapter will be back in town the last week of September for a very special Laughing Liberally performance. He, along with Josh Bolotsky, will be performing a live riffing of Atlas Shrugged. I had the privilege of seeing this at the Netroots Nation conference and it's hilarious.
Here's the facebook post about it so you can see the details and RSVP: http://is.gd/NVOar9
The event will be on September 25th and it will follow the regular Laughing Liberally show which kicks off at 7:00PM. So, 7:00 comedy followed by the the hilarity of Ayn Rand at 8:30. Hope to see you there!
