Drinking Liberally Tucson May 4th


I want to appologize for the mysterious disappearance of your Drinking Liberally hosts last week. Tasha was on vaction and I was suddenly taken ill. I hope that the Drinkers who showed up made the best of it and had a great time. Perhaps someone(s) would like to volunteer as a sort of emergency reserve host(s)?

This week, your regular hosts are back online and we’ll be hosting an interesting special guest this week: Ken O’Day will be drinking with us and talking about his opposition to the proposed ballot initiatives creating the Regional Transportation Plan. A few of you may remember that we has Steve Farley in for a pro-RTA view a few months ago, now we get the other side of the issue.

There will, of course, also be plenty of time for the usual rukus, current event chewing, and drinking, too. So don’t fail to come just because you think you’ve already made up your mind on the RTA.

In coming weeks we have some tentative booking for interesting guests,

Next week, May 11, State Representative David Bradley (D) will be joining us to lift a few.

The following week, May 18th, City Councilwoman Karin Uhlich and her chief of staff will knock a few back with us.

Further ahead, Quynn Elizabeth of KXCI’s Broad Perspectives has agreed to join us when she returns to Tucson toward the end of the year.

If you have special guests whom you would like to see at future Drinking Liberally rounds, let us know and we’ll see if we can book ’em.


  1. Sorry you were ill last week, but we had a splendid discussion about education. The group exchange of ideas was very lively, as always – no wonder I look forward to the weekly DL!
