Beer Improves Most Politics
Drinking Liberally, an informal, an inclusive Democratic drinking club, meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays. You don't have to be a policy expert and this isn't a book club; just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics. After roaming the first Tuesday of every month, the group regularly settles back into The Comet in Northside. For more info, contact Chris Berger at email@example.com.
Ride for Change
Join Critical Mass, a bicycle ride beginning at Fountain Square at 6 p.m. the last Friday of each month. It might seem like just a pleasant bicycle ride, but participants are actually helping to spread the word about a healthful, non-polluting means of transportation that helps combat traffic congestion.
