I can't believe we've never had a meetup at this place.

We're going to get together at TANSTAAFL Pub in Arlington. 7:00 p.m. April 17th. 409 North Bowen Road.(From west Arlington on I-30, go south on Fielder. Take a right on Division, take another right on Bowen to 409 North Bowen.)

TANSTAAFL is an acronym for There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. The phrase was popularized in Robert Heinlein's classic libertarian sci-fi novel "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress". Big Daddy Milton Friedman used it as the title of a 1975 economics book. And it's the name of a wonderful little bar in Arlington.

TANSTAAFL has a trivia night on Wednesdays, starting at 8:00 p.m. We need to show up, and we need to win. (There is always a "controlled substances" category, so ringers from DFW/NORML are welcome to join us.) They give a prize for best team name, and I'm suggesting "The Other Bastard Sons Of Thomas Jefferson", "The Ron Paul Avatars", or possibly "Vince Foster Died For Your Sins". You get the idea.

Bonus attraction: Ryan Sheffield, our artist/writer friend from the minarchist/anarchist camp, already has some pieces hanging in TANSTAAFL. Go here to see his other fine work:

Ryan is giving away one of his Ayn Rand prints to a lucky libertarian who shows up Wednesday night. We'll have the drawing for this around 7:30, and Ryan will have other pieces for sale. Trivia starts at 8:00. Hope to see you there!!!
