Drinking Liberally S. Bellevue Monday, April 7th

Well, March is over with. Thank God. What a horrible month. Seattle shattered the 64 year old record for rainfall, which makes it the rainiest March in at least 124 years since record keeping began. The mudslide in Oso is the worst natural disaster to ever hit the state. Recovery efforts continue. Thankfully the weather has improved temporarily, but the weekend forecast is pretty bleak.

Speaking of Oso, my friend McKenna Hartman (by friend I of course mean Facebook friend, I've only met her once) has organized an Oso fundraiser (proceeds to the Red Cross) to take place one week from tonight at the Spitfire in Belltown, 5:30 - 8:00 PM, 2219 4th Ave. Seattle, 98121. Hope to see some of you there.

Speaking of Seattle, the Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally which meets every Tuesday, 8:00 PM, now has a new location, The Roanoke Park Place Tavern, 2409 10th Ave. East, Seattle, 98102.

Speaking of the Roanoke, the Mercer Island Community and Events Center is the location of this year's Northwest Progressive Institute Gala, featuring State Rep. Chris Reykdal. To learn more about NPI and the Gala, visit or just show up at Drinking Liberally Monday, NPI representatives will be there.

Oh, and Monday is also the NCAA championship. Even more reason to go to the Mustard Seed Grill and Pub. Tip off is 6:10 PM, Drinking Liberally is 7:00. I'll be there for tip off. See you then!

Drinking Liberally S. Bellevue tonight!

Ever look at a map of the world? The entirety of North America fits inside of Russia. Unilateral American military action against Russia has not been an option at any time during the existence of America, regardless of who is or was Commander in Chief. Putin of course knows this, as does John McCain, which makes McCain's frequent, calculated, and puerile tantrums intended to undermine the president and US foreign policy damn close to treason. Russia's apparent attempt to annex Crimea is, however, great news for Chris Christie.

Much to discuss. Hope to see you tonight at the Mustard Seed Grill & Pub, 7:00 PM.

Drinking Liberally S. Bellevue Tonight!

Come celebrate the amazing win by the Seahawks, and the equally amazing demise of Chris Christie, the man who was expected to save the Republicans from themselves and America from Hillary Clinton. He may not be completely finished yet, but at a minimum is severely weakened as a presidential candidate. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Also, Congratulations to Jaxon Ravens, the new Chair of the Washington State Democrats.

Hope to see you tonight.
