There Will Be Beer

posted by on July 14 at 14:00 PM

Community councils take note: if you want people to show up to your meetings, make sure there’s beer.

As the Stranger’s neighborhoods reporter, I’ve been to my share of community council meetings in the last year or so, and they’re about as much fun as a poke in the eye. However, there’s one upcoming meeting I’m actually looking forward to.

I’ve just been informed that the Georgetown Community Council holds their monthly forum at a restaurant—rather than a community center or city office—which means: beer!

Georgetown’s next meeting is at 7pm next Monday at the Coliman Restaurant.

I’ll report back on whether or not beer actually makes agonizing and interminable debates about graffiti and “kids these days” tolerable.

It is said that in the Persia of yore a local council would make any important decision twice: once sober, and once roaring drunk.

If they reached the same conclusion both times, then their decision was clear. If not, they'd keep working on it until both of their minds agreed.

A worthy tradition I think.

Wow. Now that is a great idea. Would you attend if we met at Boyd's Pinehurst Pub? I bet they have the cheapest drinks in town. And, the discussion would be so much more interesting...

Jonah, how many days are left till the "There Will Be ________" conceit reaches its sell-by date?
