JUNE LIST OF EVENTS (Check back often, events are updated all the time):

June 4, 2008, 7:00pm: The New York Young Republican Club (the state-party affiliated one) June Social at Bowery Wine Company, 13 East 1st Street, between Bowery+Second Avenue. Bruce Willis is not being welcomed warmly by the anarchists, Marxists, and counter-culture riffraff of the Lower East Side now that he's opened the Bowery Wine Company. In fact, John Penley, a liberal activist, told Page Six in the NY Post that "We want to show our opposition to right-wing Republicans opening yuppie wine bars in our neighborhood." Needless to say, we're going to fill his neighborhood whether he likes it or not. Come join us for a great evening. Members, Non-members and all Guests are warmly welcomed. Free.

Michel Evanchik moderates, and Todd Seavey hosts. Free admission, cash bar. The debates, usually pitting two opponents against each other (in a civil and often humorous fashion), take place on the basement level of Lolita Bar at 266 Broome St. at the corner of Allen St. on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, one block south and three west of the Delancey St. F, J, M, Z subway stop.
