We had an enjoyable gathering last evening at the Tri-Cities Drinking Liberally session. More people showed up than before so the trend is in the right direction. We talked about Gore's speech and the state party chair race.
For those out there that may shy away from the bar scene, our DL group tends to talk much more than we drink. And now that bars are smoke-free my major disincentive has been removed. Note: to assure our welcome by our host we should probably buy more food if we aren't buying lots of drinks.
