Wow! So little time, so many “democratic” things to do!
We hope you will join us on Saturday, August 24th for a fun (and free!) social gathering with your fellow Democrats! (Adults only, please.) The evening will feature a showing of the new eye-opening Netflix documentary, “The Great Hack,” to be followed by lively conversation. (Is there any other kind?!)
Doors open at 5:00PM. If you plan to join us, please arrive between 5:00PM and 5:30PM so that the food can be set up before the movie starts. We will start the (1 hr 54 min) movie at 5:45PM. You are, of course, welcome to get up and eat/drink/graze/etc. during the show. We will wrap discussion by 8:45PM (needing to be cleaned up and out the door by 9:00PM!)
We ask that you bring a potluck side dish or dessert (with its serving utensil) or beverages. (You are welcome to BYOB!)
