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:
- Why should someone support for President anyone who voted for the FISA bill
- Does one have to support Charles Rangel even though it's obvious he's as ethically challenged as most politicians
- Which is more important; the "D" by someones name or their actual stance on the issues
- What does the inside of a kangaroo's pouch feel like (not really political but something I like to discuss)
