| PROMOTING DEMOCRACY ONE PINT AT A TIME.|
A new group that is sweeping the nation is Drinking Liberally . It's a political discussion group over beer. They call themselves an informal, inclusive weekly Democratic drinking club. Here's a little bit of their kind of inclusive advertising friendly slogans:
You can 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.
I haven't been yet, but I plan to one of these days.
In Providence, here's their meeting plan:
