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 José Pistola's upstairs bar, where there are drink specials from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. And the more we tip the bartender, the more frequently he hands out free dishes of chips and dips. I hope to see you there!
José Pistola's is at 263 South 15th Street (15th and Spruce) in Center City, near the Kimmel Center and the Academy of Music. There's a parking garage across the street, but as filthy liberal hippies naturally we suggest public transit; both SEPTA and PATCO will get you there in two shakes of a lamb's tail.
This week's topic: I'm still stunned, so to speak, about Dunta Robinson's egregiously vicious hit on DeSean Jackson in the second quarter this past Sunday. A personal foul on Robinson wasn't enough. Fifteen-yard penalty after Jackson was lying twitching on the ground after a deliberate, aimed hit to the chin? Are you kidding me? Dude should be fined thirty or fifty grand and be suspended, without pay, for a few weeks.
