the blog of DC Drinking Liberally
AltHippo, Jesse, and I are at the Take Back America conference this week, along with hundreds of other progressives from all over. (AltHippo has been reporting about it on his blog.)
Along with Justin from the national Drinking Liberally group, we’re going to be hosting a happy hour tonight for those in town for the conference, DCDL regulars, and anyone else who’s interested in conversation with fellow liberals. We’ll be starting about 6:30pm at our usual hangout, the back room at Timberlake’s (1726 Connecticut Ave NW), less than two blocks south and across Connecticut Avenue from the conference hotel.
So stop by and say hello. We’ll be around until at least 9.
If you’re looking to spend a few days networking with liberal activists, hearing speakers, and attending workshops, there are at least three progressive political conferences this summer:
DemocracyFest, June 9–10, 2007, Manchester, New Hampshire: Sponsored by Democracy for America, this “annual educational and inspirational festival for the progressive grassroots” features Howard Dean, John Edwards, Mike Gravel, and other speakers, trainers, films, and panels.
Take Back America, June 18–20, 2007, Washington, DC: The Campaign for America’s Future is holding this conference at the Washington Hilton (across the street from our DCDL meeting place). Speakers include John Edwards (and probably Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who spoke last year), Howard Dean, newly elected senators (including Jon Tester), bloggers (including Atrios and Chris Bowers), and others. Drinking Liberally will be co-hosting a special event one night, so watch this blog and the e-mail list for details.
YearlyKos, August 2–5, 2007, Chicago, Illinois: John Edwards, Barack Obama, and Bill Richardson (at least) will be participating in a Presidential Leadership Forum. The speaker lineup is still in flux. Those who can’t travel to Chicago can attend YearlyKos virtually in Second Life.
