You've probably noticed by now that because of the upcoming election, a lot of Meetups have been scheduled in the next month. We have a Meetup scheduled for all three presidential debates, the vice presidential debate, and of course the most entertaining debate: Comedy Central's Jon Stewart vs. Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. Most of these Meetups will be held at Addis Ethiopian Restaurant next to the 17th Street Farmers Market, where the manager has offered to provide our Liberals group with drink specials. However, Addis is unable to host us on Thursday, October 11 and Tuesday, October 16. We have tentatively scheduled these Meetups at Bailey's, but we are still on the lookout for a better venue with a private viewing area if possible. If any of you have suggestions or connections to make this happen, please let us know.
We also have a charity dinner at Mosaic scheduled on October 10, where 13% of all proceeds will go to Dress for Success, a not-for-profit agency with a great mission that is starting a chapter in Central Virginia. The food at Mosaic is phenomenal! I went there for the first time just a couple weeks ago, and I am hooked. I can't stop going back there to eat! Finally, we cap it all off with a special edition of Drinking Liberally, scheduled for election day, Tuesday, November 6, so we can watch live as the election results come in.
Because of all these Meetups, I am canceling the usual first Sunday Drinking Liberally Meetup for both October and November. We will resume first Sunday Meetups in December. Listed below are all of the upcoming Meetups with a link to the Meetup web page listed for each one. Please RSVP for whatever you can or cannot attend. I hope you all come out to at least a few of these events.
