Drinking Liberally

Hey all you lefties, there's a group out there combining drinking and politics, nothing more American than that. This group is dedicated to all things progressive, I'll just let the group's website speak:
An informal, inclusive progressive social group. Raise your spirits while you raise your glass, and share ideas while you share a pitcher. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert and this isn't a book club - just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics.

Bars are democratic spaces - you talk to strangers, you share booths, you feel the bond of common ground. Bring democratic discourse to your local democratic space - build democracy one drink at a time.

A local chapter meets at Harlings Upstairs (3941 Main, KCMO).

Some suggested topics of conversation for their next meeting could be:
  1. Why should someone support for President anyone who voted for the FISA bill
  2. Does one have to support Charles Rangel even though it's obvious he's as ethically challenged as most politicians
  3. Which is more important; the "D" by someones name or their actual stance on the issues
  4. What does the inside of a kangaroo's pouch feel like (not really political but something I like to discuss)
If anyone knows of a conservative or libertarian group with a similar M.O. let us know and we'll happy to post it.
