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!
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: Almost a full week later, I'm still trying to understand why Justice Clarence Thomas thinks that it's perfectly acceptable for a male vice-principal to strip-search a 13-year-old girl at school on an unverifiable, anonymous tip that she's carrying ibuprofen (PDF).
