January 31st Happy Hour

Hi everyone, we are resuming our last Tuesday Pints and Politics schedule. Our next one will be at 5:30 PM on Tuesday January 31st. Meeting again at PhD at the corner of W Davis and Clinton.

We're going to bring in candidates for the election in May. This month it will be Chad West, Mariana Griggs and Albert Mata, candidates for Dallas City Council District 1. Filing just opened last week so we will be inviting candidates for Districts 1, 3, and 6 to our upcoming meetings to introduce themselves.

November events

Well folks, the election is over. Turnout at the happy hours and breakfasts for the past year has been pretty light. I'm going to put any future events on hold until 2023.

October stuff

Just wanted to apologize for those who went to the happy hour and couldn't find me. I wasn't released from the hospital until it was too late to make it there.

Our next happy hour will be 5:30PM Tuesday October 25th at PhD on the corner of N Clinton and W Davis.

Abbott and the Border: Reality?

For those who don't read the Texas Tribune or ProPublica:

So the governor is trying to make our border more secure, right? Maybe his re-election more secure, definitely not the border. Plus, how much are we taxpayers paying for this bit of theater? Only the shadow knows....

April showers and pints and politics, oh my!

Hi everyone, our next event will be a "soft" relaunch of the breakfast we had for so long. Due to COVID and staffing considerations, Norma's is out for now. We'll hold it Saturday April 16th at 9 AM at Taco Deli located at Sylvan 30 (intersection of Fort Worth Avenue and Sylvan Ave.). We'll meet out on the porch which is well ventilated.


Our next pints and politics happy hour will be at PhD again, Tuesday April 26th at 5:30 PM out on their well ventilated porch.
