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: Doin' the math to see if a CSA share works for me this year. The latest number of Grid magazine (kludgey online version) profiles several choices in southeastern Pennsylvania. Do you subscribe to a CSA? Do you hate it when you get five pounds of kale for a few weeks in a row but only two mealy apples in September? Or do you see it as a way to seriously enrich your diet with seasonal produce while challenging yourself in the kitchen?
