Portland Drinking Liberally tonight at the Lucky Lab NW

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.)

And here's the October schedule for other DL chapters in Oregon and southwest WA (click the link to join their email list):

Portland Metro-West:

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


Third Thursday of each month, 7:00 pm, at Browns Towne Lounge, 189 Liberty St NE # 112 (Old Sportstop next to Read Opera House)

St. Helens:

Second Wednesday of each month, 6:30 pm, at the Klondike Restaurant PATIO, 71 Cowlitz Street (We'll meet IN the restaurant if too cold outside.)


Currently on summer hiatus.


Second and fourth Tuesdays, 7pm, at the Back Alley Bar and Grill
6503 E. Mill Plain Blvd.(West of Andresen, in a strip mall 1/2 block west of Safeway on the south side of Mill Plain. It's deep in the lot.)

(To find the DL chapter near you--there are over 300 hundred of them--go here.)

Update: A month ago, I passed along the news about Diageo (makers of Guinness, Johnny Walker, and Bailey's), who are throwing in with opponents of health care reform. Living Liberally, along with the SEIU, encourages DL'ers to sign this petition asking them to stop opposing reform. For every letter that gets sent from that link, SEIU will donate a dollar to Living Liberally. I'm still not sure Diageo is necessarily the corporate neighbor you'd want next door, but it turns out that they can be moved by public pressure: They're one of the 19 corporations who withdrew their ads from Glenn Beck's show following consumer protests. So there's reason to think they can be pushed into doing the right thing on health care reform.

(Whether sparking an advertisers' revolt on Beck will be successful is another matter.)

And speaking of donating to LL: if you appreciate Living Liberally promoting progressive action through social interaction--including keeping the whole Drinking Liberally network up and running--you can always send them a little money yourself, via Tipping Liberally.

So join the Drinking Liberally folks tonight for drinks and political conversation.

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