Drinking Liberally Bellingham Chapter Blog

Don't be intimidated by the white stuff. We'll reconvene again this Wed. at the Horseshoe. Wade on down.
One issue likely to be discussed is whether Bellingham's meager snow removal resources have been disproportionally marshalled to clean streets between city hall and Mayor Linville's house.

You guessed it. The liberal drinkers will convene again this Wed at the Horseshoe.
Many of you who are on this email list have yet to make a personal appearance, so I am giving you (you know who you are!) a special "shout-out" and encouragement to join the rest of us this week. It promises to be a rainy, but not snowy, night: perfect for some warm and wet comfort.

This Wednesday,22nd, 7:30PM at the Shoe.
News from Tara, "our" legislative aide in Oly, has Rep. Jeff Morris interested in joining us after the legislature recesses in March. Date TBA, but it is not too early to prepare your questions.

We'll meet for first time in '14, this Wed, 7:30 at Horseshoe. Hope many of you will be sufficiently recovered from the hollydays to renew our liberal fellowship.

This week brings a chance to bid farewell to our own Tara Nelson who will be leaving us in January. Tara is heading south for the winter, to Olympia, where she has landed a job as legislative aide to State Rep. Jeff Morris. Please, everyone, come congratulate Tara, help celebrate her success and wish her luck.
And if you have any even passably decent last minute gifting ideas, I'll be all ears! (Or eyes.)

We did it!
Not only did we sell the minimum number of 67 tickets required to bring The Muslims Are Coming! to Bellingham, we completely sold out the event! Thank you, everyone, for making this happen!
As of now, Tugg.com should have already emailed you your tickets for Thursday's showing. You'll need to print them or be able to pull it up on your smart phone at the theater. If you haven't gotten them, please email me ASAP and I will try to track them down for you.
If all else fails, or if you don't have a printer, simply bring your ID to the theater on Thursday and we'll figure it out. You'll need it to buy drinks, anyway. ;)
What: The Muslims Are Coming! (a film)

See you all this Thursday!

Well, kids, it's been a long three weeks but it is finally time for another session, Wed, 13th, 7:30 at the Horseshoe.
This will possibly be our only meeting this month. The next regularly scheduled date is Thanksgiving Eve and maybe we should just skip it.
The election results are probably worth reviewing. They brought the usual ups and downs, but the County Council results are certainly cause for liberal celebrating!
This Thursday, 14th, we have our DL-sponsored screening of the docu-comedy "The Muslims Are Coming" at the Pickford. This will be a fun and provocative gathering of good folks looking to share some good drink and good laughs. There are a few tickets still available on line. You can also get an extra or two during DL Wed. at the Horseshoe.
Another item for discussion is the motion for a change of venue. All input will be considered on this crucial issue. Please plan to attend.

I am so excited because I know by tomorrow we will have the 67 tickets we need to get The Muslims Are Coming! film to Bellingham. I want to give each and every one of you a big cyber hug (or a real one if I see you in person) for helping make this happen.
But we still need 3 more tickets! Three more tickets! That's like two people plus one! Or three single people! (OK,I'm just being silly now).
But seriously, this is the last call. Tomorrow there will be no more tickets for sale and this is your last chance to get yours. So if you haven't done it yet, here is the link: http://www.tugg.com/events/5666.
And if you have and you think you know one or two (or three!) people who would be interested in coming, give them a call and let them know about it! You can also tell them that 5% of all ticket sales will go to the Council on Islamic American Relations in Seattle for programs that help foster better understanding of Muslims in general.
On a side note, I'm really excited to watch a movie with 67 friends, be that people I already know or will be getting to know after this. This is what community is all about.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! And see you all Wednesday at the 'Shoe!

I promised I wouldn't stop bugging all you folks until we reached our ticket goal to bring the film, "The Muslims Are Coming" to Bellingham. That hasn't happened yet so I just want to make a plea with people because we are so close to making this happen! We have already pre-sold 46 tickets (thank you everyone!) but we still need to pre-sell 21 more tickets by next Monday, Nov. 4 to make this happen! And we need to do it fast. So please, if you know a few friends who you think would be interested in watching this film, call or email them today! Tickets are only $10.50 each and if we don't reach our goal, you won't be charged.
Please help us make this happen! Buy yours today and share it with your friends: http://www.tugg.com/events/5666
