Drinking Liberally this Thursday at Madison's Grill

Join the Portland DL chapter for our regular meeting at Madison's Grill, at SE 11th and Madison (map), Thursday (tomorrow) night at 7pm.

(DL meets the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month.)

And now let me tease you with some news about what's coming up in two weeks at our September 4th meeting:

That's the night of the McCain acceptance speech at the Republican Convention. To celebrate this auspicious event--or at least to give it the thorough mocking it deserves--Portland DL will be joining with DL chapters and house parties all across America in a little thing we like to call "McCain on the Rocks. Celebrate the official launch of the Third Bush Candidacy--in addition to the usual fine conversation, food and drinks, there will be haiku and limerick contests, trivia contests, John McCain Acceptance Speech Bingo, McCain fact-check guides, and more!

If you've been seeing these posts but you're waiting for that one special tipping-point to get you to your first meeting---this is it! I'll have more information about McCain on the Rocks in the next newsletter.

(Not on our email list yet? Tsk. Go here, enter your email, and select "Portland OR - Drinking.")

Join us tomorrow night--that's just 75 days--ten weeks and change--until the general election and 151 days until Bush leaves office--for drinks and political conversation.

(And remember: DL encourages everyone to drink, and vote, responsibly.)
