So, since I'm too late to promote the first-Thursday-of-the-month meeting of the Corvallis chapter of Drinking Liberally at 5pm - 7pm at Squirrels, 100 SW 2nd St., which met on September 2nd, I'll try to get ahead of the curve by pointing out that their next meeting will be on Thursday October 7th.
And for the rest of us, still living in September, here's the run-down for Drinking Liberally chapters in Oregon and SW Washington this month. (Click on the chapter's link to join their email list.)
