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: January is the month where I go through my files of paid bills and other serial paperwork, staple together the past year's worth of statements, and chuck the statements from the year before that. Uh, there's really nothing snappy or amusing about that. In fact, it's more of a personal "note to self" that I actually remember to make myself sit down and get to work on it around the end of this month. Happy new year!
