The Return of Drinking Liberally

Some of you may have been like me in the past seven months and looked back nostalgically at the good times we used to have at Drinking Liberally. So, I am attempting to revive the Bellingham Chapter. I never intend to run for office again so I can assure you that it will not be all about me. It will be a group to meet, drink and talk about progressive politics and other things.

Our reunion will be on Tuesday, November 10 starting at 7:30 at the State Street Bar--1315 N State St--the old Beaver Inn, seven months to the day since Scott sent out the "No Mas" e-mail. No particular agenda other than to discuss how frequently, what night(s) and where we would like to meet in the future. I suspect that we also want to discuss some of the local shenanigans and how it affected the results of the election a week earlier.

I hope to see a huge turn out. If you would like to be a part of the new Drinking Liberally, but cannot make it on the 10th, please send me an e-mail with your preference for one or two meetings a month, days that work and don't for you, and venue preference. Or, call me at my new phone of 360-922-0361. Also, simply respond REMOVE if you want no more correspondence about Drinking Liberally meet-ups.

demise of an era?

Sadly, kids, it appears Drinking Liberally in Bellingham now becomes a thing of the past. With all our recent progressive victories, there just seems little left to celebrate. Anyway, the equine carcass is now all but dust and I'm retiring...
If anyone is interested in carrying the flag forward, I'll be happy to facilitate a rejuvenating effort. Otherwise, please carry on w/o me. Best Regards to you all. Scott

4th Wed

Well kids, I have a dte with the taxman on Wednesday, so I personally will be unable to lift a few with you this week.
I know you'll be able to carry on at the Horseshoe (7:30PM) w/o my stellar example.
It seems highly likely that the Horseshoe will not survive much longer; seems it's inimitable aura has been eclipsed by ... who knows what. And it is unlikely that stand-up "comedy" (what a joke!) will save it. So enjoy the 'Shoe while it lasts.
We do need to come up w/ an alternative venue. All ideas will be entertained.


OK kids,
Time for another round, Wed the 11th at the Shoe, 7:30PM.
I think we are due for another venue vote, so show up if you want a voice ...
Altho an email preference will be considered too.

Anybody drinking this week?

Let me know if any of you are up for DL this Wed, 7:30 at Horseshoe.
If so, great. I'll see you there.
If no, I'm going to take this one off in anticipation of a big weekend celebration.
Go Hawks!

Hoppy New Year

Hi kids,

We all set to usher in 2015 w/ cheers at Horseshoe, 7:30 this Wednesday, the 14th.

Hope to see you there/then.

Xmas Eve

Hi kids,
Our opportunities to share holiday cheers are mightily limited by the calndar this year. This Wednesday, the 10th, is about it for 2014. Our next regularly scheduled (4th) Wed falls on xmas eve, so ... well, most of us will be drinking egg nog at home.
So come on down to the Horseshoe on the 10th, 7:30PM, and we'll kiss off year 2014 w/ seasonal gusto.

Happy Turkeyday

Dear Hamsters,
Just a quick note to put your minds at ease: we'll not be meeting this next Wed, Thanksgiving Eve.
Enjoy your turkeys, and the food.
Put the next dl meeting on your Dec. Calendar: Wed, 10th.

Wed at Horseshoe

12 November is second Wednesday and first DL of this month.
We'll be abck at the Horseshoe, 7:30. Maybe we'll be licking wounds after last week's election results. Or drowning them.
Anyway, we need to re-visit our venue choices as the 'Shoe comedy program, despite the efforts of Bob Burr, produces many more groans than horse laughs.
Dear god, spare me, please.

Wed at Horseshoe

Our return to the Horseshoe was marked by the return of some long-missed former regulars as well as a few new faces. We'll be there again this week, Wed the 22nd, 7:30PM.
This will be our last pre-election gathering, your last chance to make a pitch, if that's your thing.
