The Portland chapter of Drinking Liberally (their motto: "Promoting Democracy, One Pint at a Time") meets tonight at its regular place, the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub, SE 9th and Hawthorne.
(DL meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month.)
That means that we have to keep our republic for only 550 more days until George Bush finally leaves office.
We're going to have a special guest at this week's meeting: State Senator Ben Westlund (D-Tumalo) will be sampling the Lucky Lab's microbrews with us. He won't be making a formal presentation, but there's no reason why you couldn't ask him, over a nice pale ale, about the Healthy Oregon Act, which he cosponsored, or his rumored plans to run for State Treasurer next year.
Join us tonight at the Lucky Lab tonight for a great night of politics, conversation, and microbrews.
(And remember: DL encourages everyone to drink, and vote, responsibly.)
