Raise your spirits while you raise your glass every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at The Comet, 4579 Hamilton Avenue. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. There isn't a policy-wonk requirement top attend, just a desire to learn from your peers, trade jokes, vent frustrations and or hang out where it's not taboo to talk liberal politics. For more information, contact Chris Berger at firstname.lastname@example.org
