Drinking Liberally, Encinitas Every Other Wednesday MeetUp
Our MeetUps are every other Wednesday at the Beachside Bar and Grill, 806 S. Coast Highway 101 (Cross street: West G St.) Encinitas, CA 92024. Take the Encinitas Blvd exit from I-5 toward the ocean and make a left on the 101 just past the railroad bridge. The Beachside Bar & Grill will be about four blocks on the right corner. Look for the Drinking Liberally logo bottle, and often, a flashing LED. If all else fails, ask one of the outstanding staff! The meeting will start around 5:30pm to take advantage of happy hour which ends at 6:30pm. We usually stay at least until 8:30pm and often later. Show up at whatever time you can make it. Join us! Vicki, Jason, and Jim

What we're about

An informal, inclusive progressive social group. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics.

We are a chapter of Drinking Liberally, which is a part of living liberally (a national organization). My husband and I started the Encinitas chapter a bit after we moved here. We started meeting in 2007. Most of our current members found us through the Living Liberally website but since I attend meetups around SD county I thought it might be a good way to attract more people. It has been such a great way to meet like- minded people and we have made life long friends with many of them.

We have occasionally had politicians and authors come visit our meetings and we sometimes have meetings at members houses to watch debates and things. I would like to do more of these types of things as well as some activism (some of us have campaigned for politicians and propositions). I am open to suggestions for meetups outside of our regular every other Thursday meetings. Ideas are welcomed and encouraged!

Hope to meet you soon!
