I meant to post this earlier, but I’ll be moderating this panel tonight:
This Wednesday, October 12, please join AFF’s Roundtable, “Cross Party Dating: The Pick-Ups, Perils, and Pitfalls.” Our panelists will debate over the merits of dating people of different political ideologies. In the politically-charged DC culture, does party really matter in finding your soul mate? Do opposites really attract, or is it a foolish flirtation to date someone of a different mindset? Moderated by Julian Sanchez, Reason Magazine, the panelists include: Raul Damas, political affairs at the White House; John Hlinko, founder of Act for Love, an online dating portal, pairing politically active couples; Amanda Carpenter, Eagle Forum; and Jesse Benton, American Meat Institute. The event will take at the Fund for American Studies, 1706 New Hampshire Avenue, NW, near Dupont Circle. Drinks and appetizers at 6:30; Roundtable begins at 7:00. Roundtables are free for members, $5 for non-members. So join today! Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pop by if you can; $5 is pretty damn cheap cover for an open bar. If you can’t make the forum itself, we traditionally retire to Gazuza (on Ct. just above Dupont) afterwards for a post-panel beverage.
