After my last post on a serious issue....
First Fridays have become one of my favorite days of the month because of a little gathering known as Progressive Happy Hour. Early on, we mentioned Progressive Happy Hour (PHH) here on Blue Oregon but haven’t in a long time.
Usually PHH is at a smoky dive bar (because I usually choose the spot, love the dive bars and mean the word in an endearing way and when we’ve sought to listen to the occasional non-smoker and go with smoke free venues, the complainant rarely bothers to show up and besides, after this legislative session we stand a pretty good chance they'll all be non-smoking). According to the PHH website the gathering is: “a monthly gathering of progressive hacks, activists, politicos, and assorted groupies. No agenda, no boring speeches, no nothing - just drinks.”
So join us tonight. And if you work the room trying to line up support for something, bring flyers for a candidate or ask when the agenda starts, somebody will probably make fun of you.
