Drinking Liberally is a weekly social gathering where progressives talk politics and get to know one another. In Center City Philadelphia, we meet on Tuesday nights at Triumph Brewery's upstairs bar, where there are drink and food specials from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. I hope to see you there!
Triumph Brewery is at 117 Chestnut Street in Old City. It's conveniently SEPTA-accessible via the Market-Frankford El (2nd Street station), all the buses that turn around at or near Penn's Landing (5, 12, 17, 21, 33, 42, 48), and a few other buses that pass nearby (9, 25, 38, 40, 44, 47, 57, 61).
This week's topic: During a cross-country road trip in 1993, I happened to be driving through Denver when the newly formed Colorado Rockies baseball team was in town. My traveling companion and I decided to stop at Mile High Stadium to watch the game. I still have the cap I bought at the game -- and since it's the only baseball cap I have, I usually wear it whenever I attend anybody's baseball game -- but I probably won't be wearing it this week.
