What we're about

Promoting democracy one pint at a time. Share your politics while you share a beverage at your local progressive drinking club. An informal gathering of like-minded, left-leaners who may want to trade ideas, get more involved, or just enjoy each other’s company.

Reconstituted in February 2016, the Albuquerque Chapter has a diverse mix of ages, new members, and regulars. When you come, our host (Gene, Vicki, or Cory) will greet you and get you introduced and settled in. We hold two meetings a month: on the Second Wednesday we meet in the Albuquerque Northeast Heights (https://www.oniells.com/location/heights/) for an informal social gathering and on the Fourth Tuesday we're in Nob Hill (https://www.oniells.com/location/nob-hill/) with speakers on topics of interest, political candidates, or organized events (like debate watch parties).

O'Niell's Pub (https://www.oniells.com/) has graciously given us a place to meet for the past 4 years (never charging us for the space), so please patronize them (even when you're not Drinking Liberally) and tip their wait staff liberally! Click on the menu (https://www.oniells.com/menu/) to see what they are serving.

You don't have to belong to a particular political party and you don't have to drink to join us. We don't charge dues or event fees. We do encourage you to contribute to our "Tip Jar" at our events or donate on line (https://secure.actblue.com/donate/llsite) to help pay for our web sites (Meetup.com and Living Liberally.org (https://livingliberally.org/)).

DL ABQ Meet Up WILL Continue!
Needs a date and time


Our Drinking Liberally Albuquerque Meet Up subscription has been renewed thanks to the generosity of its members. You tipped DL ABQ at the February meeting $36 and there will be a "Tip DL" can out at each meeting for you to voluntarily support our websites. The Meetup website costs $89.99/semi-annually and Drinking Liberally has its own webpage at http://livingliberally.org/drinking/chapters/NM/albuquerque and you may subscribe to be on the Albuquerque Chapter mailing list at http://livingliberally.org/chapter/email_signup/5793 so you will be informed of future events. If we average $15 tips per month, that will pay for Meet Up. Anything extra donated each month at the meeting will go the National Living Liberally website for its costs. Thank you! Vicki Farrar Host, Drinking Liberally Albuquerque
