i wasn't able to make that first meeting, but i did go the next week. and have been going almost every week since then. i even kept the fires burning in those dark post-2004 election days, when it was basically just me, eligere and her mom huddled in the corner of ten stone. things got a lot better after that. i have made more friends than i can count, much less give everyone a link in this post, and that's not counting all those defunct blogs or blogless DL friends.
so tonight we're celebrating five years of liberal drunkenness. there will be cake and mithras is buying. whether you've been coming for years or this is your first time, everyone's invited:
triumph brewing company
117 chestnut street
6 p.m. until everyone leaves.
