What is Drinking Liberally?

An informal, inclusive progressive social group. 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.”

Charlotte’s chapter meets tonight at Dolce Vida in Noda. For more info, visit the national Drinking Liberally website and the Charlotte Drinking Liberally forum.
