The Blogmother has asked me to update you, My Fellow Sympathetic Americans, about the fun that my little group has been having, and to invite you along. I write, of course, about Drinking Liberally Boise. The nation's third chapter of this legendary group (there are now almost 300 chapters!), we're Boise's best venue for kvetching safely to pals old and new about anything from anti-gravity legislation to canned salmon to the political wisdom of chaining oneself to a hunk of granite. Plus, we like beers (and soda, water, wine and Manhattans over ice) and feature 30% better looks, 40% more brains, and 75% more snark than your average Idaho political get-together (especially since the average Idaho political get-together is filled with nutty conservatives).
Our regular meetups are every third Wednesday at Pengilly's. Sign up for regular (but not abundant) email reminders in the upper left corner of this page: drinkingliberally.org.
The big news? For the first time in our four year history, we're sponsoring Debate Parties! Join us for the VP debate this THURSDAY, October 2 at 6:30 PM in the bowels of the City Grill, 199 N. 8th St.
The response to our first ever Drink-N-Groan Debate Party was amazing! Dozens of optimistic liberals met last week at the City Grill to compare notes, exclaim "I can see Canada from my HOUSE!" and admire our really hot AND smart Presidential candidate. Check out images of last week's shenanigans here.
You KNOW this Thursday's VP debate will be the debate of the season. We're already wagering how long it will take after the debate for the cries of sexism to come out from the McSame camp. Any takers?
