Typically, Metro DC DSA has several recurring monthly events: membership meetings, Socialist Salons and Happy Hours.
Our membership meetings take place on the second Sunday of every month, with a month off in August. General meetings start at 2:30pm and are usually held in the meeting rooms of DC neighborhood libraries.
On the third Thursday of every month, we host our Socialist Salons, which feature a speaker discussing a topic of interest to our members and the progressive community in DC. The Salons are usually held at Hunan Dynasty at 215 Pennsylvania Ave., SE, Washington, DC, Our featured speakers usually begin at 7:00pm, but we encourage attendees, especially those who are new to Metro DC DSA, to arrive at 6:30pm so that they have time to order dinner and meet with our veteran members.
Metro DC DSA's monthly Happy Hours, formerly called "Beers for Bernie" during our We Need Bernie campaign for Bernie Sanders, take place on the last Wednesday of every month, usually starting around 7:00pm, usually at Luna Bar and Grille at 1301 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, DC. This informal event is a great way to get drinks and dinner and socialize with other democratic socialists and progressives in the DC area. Conversations range from politics and economics to science fiction books and the latest movie releases. We encourage interested and new members to attend this event to get to know us in a low-key setting.
