Drinking Liberally Spartanburg Chapter Blog

Gathering Reminder

Hi Everyone,

The 2017 Summer Tour continues, this Tuesday at Southport Bar and Grill, 629 Southport Blvd (Hwy 295). We received some positive comments from the owner when we inquired about gathering there. So lets check it out. The gathering last week at Chiefs was great, with a group of 22 attending. This is fun checking out places around town.

And speaking of new places, there is a Drinking Liberally Chapter that recently opened in Oslo, Norway! So who is into road tripping to Oslo?

The Senate is wanting to hold a vote on Trump's health care bill Thursday. So far there are six republicans in opposition to the bill in it's present form. It's going to be another interesting week. As Tom would say, "Pay attention people".

For those of us living in or around Boiling Springs, the New Groove Artisan Brewery is having a Grand Opening July 15th. It's located on Hwy 9 of course, what isn't.

Greetings Everyone,

We have three new members to welcome this week! Stephanie, Laureen, and Jennifer joined us for the first time last Tuesday, and we hope to see them again in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Stephanie, Laureen, and Jennifer!

We had a great turn out at The Growler Haus last Tuesday with 30 people enjoying good conversation and great beer. Our next stop on the Tour will be at Chiefs, 1519 John B. White Sr. Blvd. at 6:30 PM. After Chiefs, we have two more scheduled events on the Tour with a Holiday break on July 4th. You don't need to bring your own glass while on tour, but please, if you have a DL button, pin it on. Lets show our pride. And please pay attention to the gathering reminders so you don't miss out on the fun while we're on Tour.

There are two important special elections happening on the 20th, one in Georgia and one in SC District 5. If at all possible, we'll be following the returns at Chiefs Tuesday.

Summer Tour Gathering Reminder

Hi Everyone,

The second stop on our Summer Tour of local establishments will be at The Spartanburg Growler Haus, 113 N. Church St. It's very close to the square and there is a parking garage close by on Church St. Or you can drive around and find a parking place on the square. The menu is a bit different than what you would find elsewhere, but it sounds yummy. We had a great crowd gather for our first tour stop at Mothers, lets do it again at The Growler Haus. Yes, they do have beer.

So much going down every day, of which we are all aware. Sleep well, we'll talk about it all Tuesday. Spartanburg Drinking Liberally gathers Tuesday June 13th, 6:30 PM (new time) at The Growler Haus, 113 N. Church Street.

Special Gathering Reminder

Hi Everyone,

Announcing our month long 2017 Summer Tour to support local businesses in Spartanburg. Our first gathering on the tour will be at:

Mothers
1059 Fernwood Glendale Road
Spartanburg.

We will be gathering in the game room at Mothers at 6:30 PM. THIS IS A NEW TIME! Your hosts are working on a schedule for the coming weeks of places we will be. The schedule will be out in due time for everyone to be informed. We think this will be fun to get out and about for a while.

Spartanburg Drinking Liberally gathers Tuesday June 6th, 6:30 PM at Mothers. We all have thoughts, bring them to the table Tuesday, 6:30 PM AT MOTHERS. The owner is very supportive, so we're hoping for a large turnout. Let's check it out.

Greetings Everyone,

We must apologize again for the mix up at The Nu-Way last Tuesday. The renovations on the kitchen took longer than they had expected which left us locked out. About 10 of us found our way to another friendly establishment down the road. We hope those of you who were looking for us were not too inconvenienced. After a few phone calls last week we were assured this type of thing won't happen again. So this week we're back at The Nu-Way.

We have a winner in The Bill P. First Annual "Who's the Person of Interest" Pool. And since this pool was the shortest on record, the Price is Right rule will be waived this one time which makes Diane our winner picking Jared on May 26th, 2017.

Probably we don't have to worry about Trump making fools of us all on the international stage after this last week. Don't think he'll be getting invitations from many countries. It certainly was an interesting week.

A mix up at The Nu-Way

Hi Everyone,

We apologize to everyone who showed up at The Nu-Way 5/23 and found it either closed or DL not there. It was a surprise to us also when we got there at 6:15 and found the doors locked. We had received no prior notification. The Nu-Way opened later that evening with everything running easy-breezy. We will make sure that we are notified of any closures due to up grades are relayed to us before our reminders go out Sunday evenings. Please pay attention to your DL notifications during this time of transition.

See you next Tuesday,

Your hosts

Hello Everyone,

A bit of research on a Constitutional Convention uncovered some interesting information. Twelve states have adopted a resolution for a convention of states to basically rein in the powers of the federal government. And a Super PAC called Single Subject Amendment filed with the Federal Election Commission in March 1, 2013 to call a convention for the limited purpose of proposing an amendment to provide that every law enacted by Congress shall embrace only one subject which shall be clearly expressed in the bill's title. Only one state, Florida, has adopted this resolution. Interesting.

So who is "the person of interest"? Maybe it's time for a Bill P. Pool.

Hello Everyone,

Another week, another new member. You have to love it! Hiirak joined us last week and it was great to have his voice around the table. We look forward to having him be a part of our weekly discussions in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Hirak!

With so many things happening daily, we need everyone's thoughts and feelings to just try and make some sense out of what's actually going down. Can we rely on each other to keep us all somewhat sane? That's what we do right?

Hi Everyone,

We have a new member to welcome this week. Nick dropped by last week just to see what we were all about. It was good to meet him and hope to see him around on all the Tuesdays to follow. Welcome Nick!

State Senators Sheheen and Grooms have introduced a gas tax hike bill to fund road repair and construction that actually passed the Senate. It is expected to pass the House also and should not be vetoed by Governor McMaster. The bill calls for a 12 cent per gallon tax increase but SC residents can report that tax on our state return. Can we finally envision a time where it's enjoyable to drive around our beautiful state? Thank you to Senators Sheheen and Grooms!

The primary for Congressional District 5 is Tuesday May 2nd. If you live in District 5 or know someone who does, please vote or tell your friend to vote. All elections are important.

May 1st is May Day, always was since we can remember and always should be. Wear some flowers in your hair, put a little dance in your step, spread good tidings to all you meet.
