Environment/land use social networking: Drinks in Common


Join non-profiteers, policy wonks and the general public in environmental issues social networking at Drinks in Common.

Soluna Cafe and Lounge, 272 McAllister in San Franicisco's Civic Center neighborhood.

This month's very controversial featured speaker, John Dennis, challenges Nancy Pelosi's foreign policy compromising emphasizing wiser land use policy at home.

Bring the troops home: Pelosi No, Dennis Yes
Foreign Intervention: Pelosi Yes, Dennis No
Time to address domestic land use issues: Pelosi No, Dennis Yes

Drinks in Common is a forum for land use/The Commons discussion and social networking for environmentalists, and we've asked John Dennis, libertarian Republican to face the music regarding the commons. Libertarians don't often concede that there is a commons, and even less often admist that anything like the commons ought to fund public programs. On the other hand, John Dennis, candidate for Nancy Pelosi's 8th Congressional District office would bring discussion of land use issues to the fore by ending gross US military environmental degradation abroad.

In short, don't snort a libertarian off the stage when he's willing to do in foreign policy what Pelosi won't do, but which many San Franciscans want.

Instead, come pose tough environmental questions to a candidate who's on-board with San Francisco's generally anti-interventionist personality.

Drinks pour at 6:30. Short talk begins at 7 pm followed by Q & A and networking.
