Face the Drinks

Drinking Liberally’s conservative counterpart is establishing roots in Denver. American’s Future Foundation, the self-proclaimed “network of America’s next generation of classical liberal leaders,” plans to host a second installment of conservative-themed discourse over drinks May 8 at Denver’s Irish Snug.

“This will be a laid-back and fun way to meet other Denver-area limited-government types,” according to an e-mail from event organizers Kelly Maher and Brad Jones, editor of the right-leaning Colorado political blog Face the State.

Jones announced his intention to kick off a regular series of conservative get-togethers at Denver pubs in March when AFF hosted a discussion entitled “How the West will Be Lost.” The event featured an upbeat crowd that heard many of the conservative and libertarian speakers deliver gloomy predictions for the future of the Republican Party in western states.

AFF already hosts a monthly happy-hour discussion in Washington, D.C., according to its Web site.
