The Portland chapter of Drinking Liberally (their motto: "Promoting Democracy, One Pint at a Time") meets tonight at its regular meeting place, the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub, SE 9th and Hawthorne.
(DL meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month.)
There was some confusion from the notice to members sent out on Sunday: As several alert members pointed out, the note itself declared the meeting to be on "Thursday, February 2nd," of which there isn't one this year. The dead hand of tradition declares that DL meets on the first and third Thursdays, actual dates notwithstanding.
I can only say that, in my excitement, I momentarily got Groundhog's Eve (when boys and girls go out in Ground Hog costumes and demand candy--or else they'll burrow under their neighbors' granaries) confused with Groundhog's Day itself--which has its own traditions and customs.
(And remember: DL encourages everyone to drink, and vote, responsibly.)
