Phil Scarr and I are shocked, saddened, and thrilled to announce that Drinking Liberally Waukesha will be moving to a new venue after our February 6th meeting. We’re shocked that we have too many Waukesha County liberals to fit into our current space, saddened to leave Sprizzo Gallery Caffe, whose staff made us feel at home deep in the heart of Waukesha, and thrilled that Tammy Baldwin will join us for an Extraordinarily Special Session of Drinking Liberally Waukesha on February 20th at our new location!
Starting with our Extraordinarily Special Session on February 20th, we’ll meet at Bullwinkles/Panos, 20290 W. Bluemound Rd. Yes, technically that’s in Brookfield, but the place meets all of our needs: easy access, giant parking lot, an extensive bar including a wide variety of beer on tap, a large food menu, and, most importantly, a room that can hold up to 200 people. We’ll be able to drink, eat, listen to speakers, and mingle all in one space. And we won’t have to worry about possibly breaking fire code on March 5th, when Mahlon Mitchell comes to speak to us.
Phil and I want to thank Karla, Jeff, and the entire staff at Sprizzo for their generosity and for making us feel so welcome. If it weren’t for the lack of space, Drinking Liberally Waukesha would happily remain at Sprizzo indefinitely. I know I’ll be back to visit often-for the atmosphere, the artichoke dip, and the chocolate cake. And, of course, to grab a drink.
