Drinking Liberally

Drinking Liberally. The Observer is proud of its reporting of new movements and new progressive organizations. We have never been more pleased to announce a new organization as we are of this new discovery—Drinking Liberally. Drinking Liberally describes itself as “promoting democracy one pint at a time.” The concept is simple, “Raise your spirits while you raise your glass, and share ideas while you share a pitcher,” proclaims its website. “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.”

· There are 65 Drinking Liberally sites in the U.S., with five of them in PA—Doylestown, Lewisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and State College. Check out the links for locations or for instructions on setting up your own Drinking Liberally chapter.
