About Think & Drink:
Americans have never been shy about professing pride in and love for our young nation—a nation that many of us are also constantly criticizing and striving to change. How do we reconcile defining ourselves both as part of and in opposition to the land we call home? Join Oregon Humanities in taking a look at our relationship to our nation in the 2013 Think & Drink series, How to Love America.
Think & Drink is a free happy-hour series that invites the public to think and talk together about big ideas. All events will take place at McMenamins Mission Theater and Pub, 1624 NW Glisan St., Portland. Doors at 5 p.m.; program from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Minors are allowed when accompanied by an adult.
