Friday night's get-together, "Eat Drink and Be Marxist!" was a big success, with about 40 people showing up - including many of our newer members and many friends who are not members yet but came to check us out. We enjoyed the warm weather in the back yard of the Georgia Beer Garden at 420 Edgewood Ave., getting to know each other and "putting the social in socialism." Check our Facebook page for announcements of similar events in the future. Thanks to MADSA's Social Media team for organizing this one.
BTW, Beer Garden owner Johnnie Martinez is a DSA member who also owns the Joystick bar across the street. We met him through his support for the Bernie Sanders campaign, and have enjoyed his hospitality on other occasions. Thanks Johnnie and partner Brandon!
