September stuff

We had a great turnout last month and expect more as our candidate roster gets fuller. If you are a candidate, please reach out to us to let us know if you are coming.

I'm also planning on some candidate meet and greet opportunities. Since the deadline is in early December, we will probably begin after Thanksgiving. I will also share any candidate town hall meetings in our area with the email list and post to the blog.

August activities

Hi everyone, our next happy hour will be at 6PM on Tuesday August 19th. We will be in the back room of PhD, 1300 W Davis Street at N Clinton Ave.

We are still working on the project list for the upcoming 2024 bond issue, but I can fill everyone in on the parts I am working on. I'm trying to get Chad or one of his representatives to update us.

Got some City of Dallas budget town hall meetings coming up. Most will want to attend the one on Thursday August 10th at 6PM at Methodist Hospital for District 1. There will be multiple virtual and in person meetings with presentations in English and Spanish.

The full list is here:

Summer break

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.
