Hoist one in honor of Ken Paxton on Tuesday, May30th

Yes indeed, it is time for another Pints & Politics Happy Hour at PhD, 1300 W Davis at the corner with N Clinton. We are going to make this one all about GOP corruption, in particular corrupt Ken.


Join us at 5:30 on Tuesday and we'll see what kind of outrageous stuff has happened at our Legislature!

Pints & Politics on Tuesday April 25th

Hi everyone,

Early voting for the municipal elections starts on Monday April 24th. You can vote at any voter center in Dallas County. Districts 1, 3, 4 and 6 all have competitive races. Only the mayoral race doesn't have competition since nobody other than the mayor qualified for the ballot.


Our next Pints & Politics happy hour will be on Tuesday April 25th at 5:30. We are back over at PhD, 1300 W Davis. If the weather permits we will be out on the porch. Look for the banner.

January 31st Happy Hour--rescheduled to February 7th

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.  Rescheduling for February 7th, too much ice on the ground and not enough in our drinks. 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.
