Poll question: Indy DU'er Gathering
It's been brought to my attention that its about time for another gathering of Indy-DU'ers.


WHERE: Spencer's Stadium Tavern
802 S. West St. Indianapolis, IN 46225
http://indianabeer.com/events/06/spencersstadium.html


WHO: Any DU'ers interested in meet/greet/chat/hang out with other Indy DU'ers! :toast:


WHEN: That's what I need y'all to help decide.
Leaning toward mid-Feb to give folks time to check their schedules.

Thursdays are fine for they coincide with the weekly Drinking Liberally meeting.

3. As it happens, I am home tonight with what's left of a nasty bug I caught
I didn't go to class in order to avoid infecting others and, more importantly, because I don't want the bitter cold to make things worse!

5. Thank you, hippiechick!
I hope I get to see you at the next DU gathering. BTW, Spencer's was not carrying John Adams the last time I was there (Election night), I had to settle for Killian's Red. You know how I am about beer!

15. I would prefer Friday or Saturday
Edited on Sun Feb-04-07 12:49 PM by EstimatedProphet
I could potentially make it Thursday 16th, since I will be in Indy that day and I have the next day off.

On edit: I meant Thursday 15th

22. I will try to make it - but work may not allow me to
My loss... I would LOVE to see you all. But the most important thing is to find the time that most folks can make - the bigger the better for all. If I am lucky - I will be able to make it. If not, please know that I am there in spirit.

24. I hope so as well...
but that is often an evening that stretches late (eight - nine) - but it would/is always so great to have some time with fellow duers that it is worth it. Will try hard to do so. Hope someone gets in touch with Keith.

25. Count me in - and I've got a surprise for y'all!
I'm tossing my hat in the ring and (finally) running for office myself!
Yep, DUer Speedway Democrat is running for Town Council in....wait for it...SPEEDWAY!
Yes, that's right! I'm bypassing a chance to serve on the Indianapolis City-County Council (too much in-fighting, not enough action) for a long-shot gig at running Speedway. As we don't have a Mayor, I figure this is as close as I can get to running things as they should be run (By the People AND For the People - ALL of the People - not just the ones that vote Republican't!).

Currently run by five old Republicans who are apparently very litigation-happy, I figure it's about time we got a Democratic candidate on the ballot in red, red Speedway! And I'm working to find four other Democratic candidates to run with me, as all 5 seats are up for election and two of the five (R) incumbents are NOT running again.

We swept Wayne Township in last fall's elections (a first since 1974), and now we're COMING TO SAVE THE TOWN OF SPEEDWAY! (Do you think I'll need a cape and a pair of leotards to complete my Super Hero costume? ha ha)

Will share more details with you all on Thursday.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again!
Stay warm and safe until then...
Speedway Democrat

I used to live in Speedway and worked at B&W Plumbing back in the 80's. Speedway looks like it has shifted toward a more democratic base than back then. I think you've got a good shot a tossing the republicans out.

30. Agreed, Mad Hoosier!
Speedway is changing - it's more of a pinkish/purple shade instead of die-hard Red.
If I can swing the apartment dwellers vote, I've got a real shot at it. They feel like second-class citizens right now, thanks to the litigation-happy council deciding they have no rights at all. The law enforcement of the ordinance is on hold, pending an appeal that will never pass.
Meanwhile, the legal billing clock keeps ticking and their lawyers of choice continue to rake in the money, defending a law that should have never been passed. That's money that could have gone to the schools or public safety, etc.
My official announcement is tonight at 7 PM at the Wayne Township Democratic Club meeeting.
Thanks, everybody for the kind words and support!
See you Thursday at Spencer's!

32. Where was everyone at??????
The only people there was that hard drinking couple of Jokerman and SpeedwayDemocrat, and you guys know I never touch the stuff. :eyes:

Even Agent Mike failed to show his face.

At least Drinking Liberally had their usual splendid attendance.

3 hours roundtrip driving time made sure that I would have hardly had any time there.
