It's Flag Day. And what better way to spend it than Drinking Liberally with your fellow Brooklynites at a bar called Commonwealth? (For those of you who don't know, Drinking Liberally is a drinking club committed to promoting democracy one pint at a time.)
So, in the spirit of Flag Day, which just happens to fall on the date of the June gathering of Park Slope Drinking Liberally, here's what I propose: we get together tonight, get really drunk (on beer, on soda, on life, on conversation, on enchiladas from the fantastic Mexican place next door) and take patriotism back from those assholes--and no, I don't mean a particular political party, I mean a specific culture of flag-waving assholes, and you know exactly who I'm talking about. For an added bonus, I'll buy a beer for whoever shows up dressed like an American flag (at least until I run out of money).
