Drinking Liberally at The Urban Onion 7PM Monday July 7, 2014

Hi all. D.L. is meeting tomorrow, July 7, at the Urban Onion.

Drinking Liberally at The Urban Onion 7PM Monday June 16, 2014

Hi all.

Last time, despite having been told that there would be no band playing, we did find a loud jazz band playing at the Urban Onion and found it inhospitable for conversation. We made a hasty relocation to the Fish Tale Brewpub on Jefferson Street. If we find the Urban Onion again is hosting a band or some other event, we will relocate to the Fish Tale Brewpub.

The big shocking political news of the past two weeks was Eric Cantor's surprising loss to challenger Dave Brat in the Virginia primary. Why it happened and what it means for the upcoming general election are the two big questions posed by the punditocracy.

Come share your opinions on this and other political topics tomorrow. Bring your thoughts, bring a liberal friend, and forward this to other liberal drinkers you know. If you're a newcomer, look for the DL logo table toppers on our table(s). This link will open a GoogleMap to show the location of the Urban Onion: http://g.co/maps/eu8pf

Drinking Liberally at The Urban Onion 7 PM Monday, June 2, 2014

Hi all.

The Urban Onion says that they won't be having live music tomorrow, so we have a chance to meet up and talk and actually hear each other. We're going to find out what the music schedule is, so we'll know whether we need to look for an alternative place. Come tell us if you have a place to recommend.

Bring your thoughts, bring a liberal friend, and forward this to other liberal drinkers you know. If you're a newcomer, look for the DL logo table toppers on our table(s). This link will open a GoogleMap to show the location of the Urban Onion: http://g.co/maps/eu8pf

NO Drinking Liberally at The Urban Onion on May 19

Hi all.

We have called the Urban Onion and there will be the same jazz band playing there tomorrow (Monday) night, making conversation impossible. Currently we do not have an alternative venue lined up. Perhaps this is a good time for you all to suggest other places we could go when the Urban Onion is not available. Please think about it and bring your ideas to our next meet-up in June.

Drinking Liberally at The Urban Onion? 7 PM Monday Night, May 5, 2014

Hi all.

We were blasted out of the Urban Onion (UO) again at our April 21st meet-up by a deafening jazz band. Conversation wasn't possible. We tried to call the UO yesterday evening to see if music was scheduled for Monday, but they never answered their phone. We'll try again this evening, and send out a last-minute notice if we can get an answer. At the least, we'll stop in at 7 PM Monday and ask the bartender if there's a predictable pattern to the music schedule. If anyone can recommend an alternate meeting place, perhaps it's time we had that discussion?

So, hopefully Drinking Liberally Olympia is meeting this Monday at 7:00 pm at The Urban Onion. Since we're not sure what we'll find, this is one occasion when we're not suggesting that you bring a friend. Bring your thoughts, though. If you're a newcomer, look for the DL logo table toppers on our table(s). This link will open a GoogleMap to show the location of the Urban Onion: http://g.co/maps/eu8pf
