“Drinking Liberally” Orange County Chapter launches on August 17th

Your friends at TheLiberalOC.com are launching an Orange County chapter of the national organization of “Drinking Liberally.”

This is just an informal, non-programmatic gathering that will meet every Thursday evening at Memphis Bar in Santa Ana at 8:30 p.m. Personally, I think that this is a much needed gathering here in OC. Consider it an oasis for progressive thinkers and those interested in progressive politics. I’m hoping to bring together activists, new comers and everyone in between.

Inebriation isn’t the end goal; engagement is.

One part Moveon.org and one part Tammany, the “Drinking Liberally” club brings the energy of online social networks into the face-to-face world of old-style 19th century bar-room politicking.

This is a no-pressure setting. Come once a week or once a month. Just come out and meet the people in the community.

If you’re even slightly interested in this event, here are a couple of things that will hopefully pull you in:

  • Read the Drinking Liberally website [HERE]
  • Sign up for the Drinking Liberally Orange County Mailing List [HERE]
  • Check out the currently silent OC chat boards on DL’s website [HERE]
  • Print out a flyer and give it to friends [HERE]
  • Check out the press release [HERE]

      Mike,

      Is there any reason why we should wait until the 17th?

      Of course not! I’m just going to launch the official thing on that date. That gives me a couple of weeks to try to get the word out.
