I’ve just got an email on the launch of the Drinking Liberally chapter in Dunedin:
Come raise your spirits as you raise a pint as New Zealand’s network of progressive drinking clubs arrives in Dunedin. Drinking Liberally is an informal, non-programmatic gathering of like-minded left-leaners, an opportunity to share you ideas while you share a drink. You don’t need to be a seasoned activist or policy wonk to join us in meeting new friends, reconnecting with old ones, and enjoying a stiff mix of socializing with a dash of politics.
Our first special guest is Green MP Keith Locke.
Drinking Liberally has become a fast-growing phenomenon, now offering social space for progressive pint-pourers in all major centres in New Zealand.
Come and raise a toast to some bottoms-up democracy!
The Revolution begins at Happy Hour.
Man, that’s some sweet writing. Not sure how Hamilton will feel about not being classed a major centre 🙂
What: Drinking Liberally – Dunedin
When: 7pm, Tuesday March 3

Who: Keith Locke to speak, a good motley crew to socialise
