I’ve been spending a lot of my time at the Democratic convention in scenes like this:
From left to right that’s David Rolf, president of a NW chapter of the Service Employees International Union; Geo from Blue Scholars; and Seattle music promoter Dave Meinert, all taking a break from their margaritas yesterday afternoon at Tamayo, a two level bar and restaurant in downtown Denver. This SEIU reception was just one in a huge schedule of parties, most of them fueled by lots of free booze and food, that happen in the background during convention week (or in the foreground, depending on your priorities). I’ve made it a high priority to be at as many parties as possible, which is why I may have sounded a little less than lucid in an interview I just did for KUOW about what’s happening in convention-land, what the Washington delegation is up to, and what the politics of the week look like.
It will air this morning during Morning Edition on 94.9 FM if you want to give it a listen.
