Liberty on the Rocks Tonight!

This is such a fun event! There is no opening prayer, no pledge, no treasurer's report, no reading of the minutes of the last meeting, no guest speaker. There is no program and no agenda, no officers and no one in charge. This is just a bunch of right-of-center liberty-loving people getting together to drink and socialize.

I am a regular at these events. Now, I will tell you, the more libertarian end of the right-of-center spectrum dominates but right-of center folks of all strips are welcome. We need some more diversity in right-of-center opinion at these events.  I need some allies.  So, if you are a more mainstream conservative, I urge you to attend so I don't feel like the lone ranger.

Attendance is usually about fifteen to twenty-five people. It is on the patio at Mafiaoza's in the 12th Avenue South neighborhood. Mafiaoza's provides delicious hor'devers or pizza (sometimes they don't) and you are responsible for your own drinks. For this group, happy hour with two-for-one drinks is all night long. The group ranges in age from those in their early 20's to those in their 70's, and with everyone from students to laborers to attorneys. The larger group usually ends up breaking into four or so smaller groups with people floating between the groups. Right of center is still a pretty broad spectrum and interesting discussion and respectful but animated debate is the norm. If you are tired of hanging out with your liberal co-workers or family or people who never talk about anything of substance, come party with some smart like-minded people.
