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: We've resolved our dispute with Christine O'Donnell, so our election night party is back on schedule. We're co-hosting a returns-watching party with the Philadelphia chapters of the National Lawyers Guild and the American Constitution Society. The party won't end until the races are called, so come on down any time after 6:00 or after the Pennsylvania polls close at 8:00.
