Drinking Liberally news

First of all, we do meet tonight, June 2nd, at the 331 Club from six to nine. Here's hoping that the sunshine holds for sitting at the tables outside.

But here's the big news:

On Wednesday (not the regular Thursday) night, June 15th, DL Minneapolis - St. Paul is sponsoring a special Netroots Nation Eve program. There will be music by Papa John Kolstad and jazz/blues violinist Gary Schulte, visits by a DFL office holder or two, legendary Twin Cities newspaperman Nick Coleman, maybe a national blogger, Justin Krebs who founded Drinking Liberally eight years ago, and the evening will be headlined by Lizz Winstead. Lizz is of course one of the creators of the wildly entertaining - and informative - Daily Show starring Jon Stewart.

We'll start getting together for the evening around six and the show will get underway at seven. And we'll be at our regular haunt, the 331 Club in northeast Minneapolis.

When it's over, you'll want to stick around for the music of Dan Newton and the Daddy Squeeze Band.

Update: Out of towners have asked about bus transportation from the convention center (where NN is taking place) or downtown generally, to the 331 Club. There is a good bus route; I don't personally use that route, but I will get the information and publish it, either here or in a subsequent post. But it's a piece of cake.
