(11.14) Come on in . . . the water’s fine. Join the blue wave and meet some of the local talent — elected officials, activists, journalists — who are in there fighting for the issues we care about. (These are those radical extremist types who believe that a sick child should be able to see a doctor without bankrupting their family.) The event, formerly known as Drinking Liberally, is now going as ‘Left Drinking.’ Facebook event.
The progressive movement in Rhode Island is getting stronger every day – and all that organizing can get mighty thirsty!
Join Uprise RI, Rhode Island Working Families Party, Aaron Regunberg, David Segal, Rachel Miller, and many other friends as we kick off a new generation of the old Rhode Island tradition Drinking Liberally – or as we’re calling it now in 2019, Left Drinking.
Every second Thursday of the month Rhode Islanders who care about climate action, justice for workers, reproductive freedom, immigrant safety, racial justice, universal healthcare, democracy, and liberty and justice for all can get together to drink, talk, debate, scheme, and also drink.
This is not a fundraiser! No agenda, no pressure, just like-minded folks fighting for a Rhode Island that works for everyone. They may have cool guest speakers in the future, but organizers decided to start with a simple get-together . . . so you can get your feet wet.
(Okay okay, about this image: I call it ‘Christina’s Water World.’ I know this woman looks like she might be drowning in climate change — and the blue wave seems to be pouring out from the bar — but since I have no formal training, I believe this can be considered “outsider” graphic design. Design brut? At any rate, she sure looks like she could use a drink.)
Plenty of parking (at current sea levels) and wheelchair accessible.
7:30pm to 10pm, Thursday, November 14, Wild Colonial Tavern, 250 South Water Street, (directions)
