Wake for Teddy at Portland Drinking Liberally tonight

This week I'll be subbing for James as DL host, and I'm declaring tonight to be a proper wake for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who died Tuesday of brain cancer at age 77.

Bring your best story about Kennedy, your best impersonation, your best speech excerpt, your best theory on where this leaves the ongoing health care debates, or your best Irish tenor.

Portland Drinking Liberally meets at the Lucky Lab Brew Hall at 19th and NW Quimby (map), tonight at 7pm. (DL-PDX meets the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month. Go here to join Portland's mailing list.)

Here's the schedule for other DL chapters in Oregon (and Vancouver WA):

Portland Metro-West:

Second Wednesday of every month, 7:00pm, at Ringo's, 12300 SW Broadway St, (just east of Hall Blvd), in Beaverton.

And if you appreciate Living Liberally promoting progressive action through social interaction--including keeping the whole Drinking Liberally network up and running--consider sending them a little love via Tipping Liberally.

So wherever you are, join the Drinking Liberally folks for drinks and political conversation.

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