Driberally tonight

Drinking Liberally is a weekly social gathering where progressives talk politics and get to know one another. In Center City Philadelphia, we meet on Tuesday nights at Triumph Brewery's upstairs bar, where there are drink and food specials from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. I hope to see you there!

NOTE: This week we will meet at Triumph, but not at the upstairs bar. Please check in at the host stand to find out where we are meeting! Next week, we'll be back upstairs.

Triumph Brewery is at 117 Chestnut Street in Old City. It's conveniently SEPTA-accessible via the Market-Frankford El (2nd Street station), all the buses that turn around at or near Penn's Landing (5, 12, 17, 21, 33, 42, 48), and a few other buses that pass nearby (9, 25, 38, 40, 44, 47, 57, 61).

This week's topic: Death to all software patents (PDF)! But sadly it looks as though I won't be able to attend and bore you with my views on the unpatentability of computer software, because last week's meeting with the neighbors has been rescheduled for tonight.Uncanceled meeting is canceled again. (If that doesn't sound like a LOLcat, I don't know what does.) This means you get to hear me expound about software patents . . . a sad state of affairs that you can prevent by buying me drinks.
