Drinking Progressively: Let’s make it Tuesday evenings, beginning on November 25.


Last week I mentioned the idea of brief weekly meetings to discuss local issues in an informal atmosphere — with beer.

In short: How do we make New Albany a place where we want to stay, not leave?

Can we?

The gist of this notion is not unlike the Drinking Liberally groups, although we’d be drinking progressively according to definition:

Happening or developing gradually or in stages; proceeding step by step.

Drinking Progressively will be an informal open discussion about what is to be done locally, in any and every sense, in preparation for city elections next year. It’s the development of the ideal civic platform. Anyone is welcome, and the intent is ecumenical, so party affiliations (or none at all) are irrelevant. Come and go as you please; no mandatory anything.

Time: Tuesday evenings, each week, roughly 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the WCTU Reading Room at Bank Street Brewhouse. I’ll pledge to be there as often as possible, but these gatherings needn’t depend on the presence of any one person.

Kickoff: Tuesday, November 25.

As an added bonus, on Tuesdays we offer inexpensive pint specials from our session series.

In addition, there’s this:

ON THE AVENUES: Why not a progressive movement in New Albany? It sure beats a two-party debacle.
