Drinking Liberally Presidential Debate #2 (10/9)

Just a quick reminder to everybody that we'll be getting together for the second Presidential Debate of 2016 on Sunday night. We will be meeting at O'shaugnessy's, located at 4557 N. Ravenswood. The event starts at 7:00 and the debate kicks off at 8:00.

Also, we will have a special keg tapping for the debate. O'shaugnessy's has hooked us up will with a keg of 5 Rabbit's "Chinga Tu Pelo". If you're not familiar with it, this was the beer they used to exclusively sell at the Trump tower in Chicago. After Trump's comments about Mexicans, they decided to pull their beer, and repackage it as a political statement. You can read more about it here:

We will probably have the whole bar, given the large turnout at the first event. But we will definitely have sound in the back room. Just ask as you come into the bar, and they'll let you know the details.
