Illinois Media Progressives has as much trouble dealing with this post-modern economy as any honest American, but one thing we’ll never have an issue with is hurling a spheroid down an oiled wooden floor at a bunch of wooden sticks.
Especially if we’re doing it with single payer activists, some of our favorite peeps ever.
So we’re pleased as punch to co-host the third annual
“Single Payer Bowling” with special guests, Donna And Larry Smith.
And we’re downright thrilled to join with the Illinois Single Payer Coalition, Progressive Democrats of America, Chicago, and the Chicago Single Payer Action Network to make “SP Bowling III” the biggest and bestest yet.
Join us Saturday, December 11th, 1:30-4:00 p.m., Diversey River Bowl.
