The Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally meets tonight (and every Tuesday), 8PM at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E.
Joining us tonight will be the next congressperson from Washington’s 8th Congressional District, Darcy Burner, who has some exciting news to share about her first-quarter fundraising totals, and the role the “netroots” played in helping her exceed her target. Burner campaign manager Zach Silk told The Stranger’s Eli Sanders that “the blogosphere was instrumental in taking us to the next level,” and she’s coming to DL to thank us all personally.
Unfortunately, Burner won’t be able to join us on our weekly podcast, because producers Gavin and Richard have fled to Europe. So unless some kind-hearted stranger stops by with a shit-load of recording equipment, Podcasting Liberally is on a one-week hiatus.
In other DL news, our host Nicholas Beaudrot is offering free beer to volunteers with a high-powered staplegun willing to post up flyers promoting this weekend’s Seattle area stop on Markos & Jerome’s “Crashing the Gate” book tour. (FYI: Friday April 7, 7-9 pm at the Seattle Labor Temple, 2800 1st AVE, and Saturday April 8, 11:30am-2pm at Marymoor Park.) And of course, for those of you on the other side of the mountains, please join Jimmy at the Tri-Cities chapter of DL, every Tuesday from 5:30 onwards, Tuscany Lounge, 1515 George Washington Way, Richland.
