I’m almost lacking in words to describe how astonishingly well tonight’s debate-watching party went. It just went that well. (And I’m kind of tired now.)
Tonight being the third Wednesday of the month means it was time for Drinking Liberally. As it perfectly coincided with the third presidential debate, we knew we had to make a party of it.
First off, I can’t say enough good things about both Sugar Maple and Cafe Centraal. A big thinks to Bruno, Drew, Adrienne, and everyone at Sugar Maple, our elegant host bar. They kindly let us bring in food from Cafe Centraal, who deserve my second round of praise. Not only was their food outstanding, but they were able to take the big order without a hitch, and then brought it over for us and settled the bill there at Sugar Maple. Flawless all around.
And Stacie got us ice cream from Babe’s on KK! Thanks, uh, babe! ;->
Finally, thank you to everyone who came. I met dozens of great new folks, and heard nothing but positive comments from them. Thank you for putting up with the horrible TV reception (how accustomed many of us are to cable TV!), and thank you for helping everyone have a wonderful time. Drinking Liberally wouldn’t be nearly the success that it is without you all.

Our next gathering will be Eating Liberally on the day after the election, Wednesday Nov. 5, at Bella’s Fat Cat, 2737 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in downtown Bay View. Let’s all get out there to get out the vote and make sure we have Victory Custard that night!
