What we're about

The short story is that we're just a bunch of Democrats who meet for Happy Hour.

But being a Democrat isn't the point. And I don't mean to suggest that you have to identify as a Democrat to be here. No, that's not it at all -- but that's probably the word most people are familiar with. We're not looking for labels and we have no agenda. We're just a bunch of forward thinking liberals (i.e., liberally thinking people) who appreciate each others' company. And the second Tuesday of every month is when we make an extra special effort to hang out with our favorite bartenders.

Sometimes we talk politics and sometimes we don't. We're very welcoming, but if you classify yourself as a red, red Republican, then this group isn't for you. And if you're just curious, come on down!

Another thing to note: even though we have no agenda, we *are* welcoming to candidates during election season. We won't endorse anyone, but we're happy to have candidates come out to kiss hands and shake babies. After all, isn't it important for us to be engaged? (Hint: YES.)

DISCLAIMER: Yes, we like booze. Goodness, we're meeting in a bar! But please be responsible with your intake. Also, this group was formerly called Dallas Drinking Liberally, the Dallas Chapter of the national organization of Living Liberally.org. (http://livingliberally.org/) But that is no longer the case. Toodles! Looking forward to drinking with you soon!

Monthly Dallas Liberal Group Meetup

Uptown Pub

2021 UPDATE: Now under new management! Ann Dunnewold and Suzanne Yaeger are the new leaders of this group. I have moved / am moving back to Austin for a new job and will continue to host the MeetUp and FB sites, but will no longer attend our gatherings.

And don't forget about COVID and its variants! Our default is to sit outside, so when bad (or hot) weather hits, please make considerate choices.

Hey all of you Liberal Thinkers & Drinkers -

There are plenty of us around the Big D; we just tend to keep a low profile.

Unless it’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month!

Then we like to gather at the Uptown Pub for a drink or two to meet new peeps and catch up with old ones. No agenda or pencil pushing, just friendship and camaraderie with other left leaners.

So please join us! We gather in the main section of the bar on the left-hand side. We kind of take over the place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, especially with our growing numbers. Woo hoo!

Uptown Pub
3605 McKinney Ave, Dallas
7:30 PM – whenever

There is a free parking garage across the street (shared with the bank) and it's also close to public transportation.

Mark your calendars – it’s always 2nd Tuesday of every month.

Bring a friend or come alone – we’re a friendly bunch.

See you soon!
