(I still mainly associate with the Portland and Portland Metro-West chapters, but since I moved upstairs last winter, from Portland chapter host to field organizer for OR, WA, AK, and HI, I'm trying to work out how to promote all five Oregon chapters plus Vancouver WA's chapter, all with their different monthly schedules and agendas.
It's not perfected yet--for example, it almost got past me that Vancouver's meeting is tonight--but I'm working on it.)
Two Oregon Drinking Liberally chapters have guests or other events coming up this month (click on their link to join their email list):
Portland Metro-West next meeting: Wednesday, Nov. 11
Guests: Defend Oregon and Yes For Oregon organizer Mike Grigsby will be coming out to discuss the ballot measures 66 and 67.
Meetings: Second Wednesday of every month, 7:00pm at Ringo's, 12300 SW Broadway St, (just east of Hall Blvd).
St. Helens next meeting: Wednesday, November 11th
New location: Village Inn (the bar, not the motel), 535 S Columbia River Hwy, in St. Helens.

(To find the DL chapter near you--there are over 300 hundred of them--go here.)
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 gang for drinks and political conversation.
And remember: DL encourages everyone to drink, and vote, responsibly.
