In two short weeks, FIRE is visiting the District of Columbia and joining our friends at Reason magazine and Students For Liberty to host a civil liberties happy hour. The event is set to take place on Wednesday, September 28th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Front Page in Dupont Circle. It's open to all who want to attend, so come on out and bring your friends to enjoy $2 drinks and complimentary appetizers. You can check out the event's Facebook page here. Hope to see you there!
