Are you looking for like-minded progressives to hang out with in Boston? Want to cross-promote your events and campaigns? Are you new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in? Are you psyched about building strong cross-issue coalitions?
Join Socializing for Justice at Jacob Wirth's for Sing-Along for Justice with pianist Mel Miller on Friday, February 29th (Leap-Year Day!) at 7:30pm
No program. No speaker. Just arrive and enjoy yourself.
RSVP (required for dinner reservations) at www.sojust.org -newcomers always welcome!
Sing-alongs at this piano bar have been a Boston tradition since 1988. The emphasis is on rock/oldies from the 50's, 60's, and 70's, with plenty of show tunes and standards, too. Stop by and see why so many people have said that Friday night at Jake's is the most fun they've had in Boston. Of course, there are also all kinds of domestic and imported beers on draft, and the Jacob Wirth dinner menu to enjoy.
At Socializing for Justice (SoJust) events you can hang out with friends, make new ones, find a date, get the scoop on a job, and find out what's going on this weekend - political or social. And the best part is that SoJust members share your vision of building a more just world.
If you're involved with a group or project and want to spread the word bring flyers to share - and there'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network in between songs.
Jacob Wirth's is at 31 Stuart Street in the Theatre District - near the Chinatown T Stop on the Orange Line and the Boylston T Stop on the Green Line.
Fee: $2 to cover group expenses.
From our FAQs:
"It's not very easy for me to meet new people and I'm not really one for small talk in bars."
We hear you. That's why at SoJust events, in addition to traditional name tags, we have "Ask Me About" and "Looking For" tags. That way you can slap whatever you're into lately up on your shirt and wait for fellow SoJusters to approach you. These seem to do the trick of moving past the basic "where do you live? what do you do for work?" questions to conversations that lead to more substantial connections.
"What actually happens at events?"
You'll always be greeted by friendly folks who can help get you socializing, introduce you to people, and chat with you about questions or wishes. It's likely a few people will be there promoting their campaigns and issues (yes, SoJust welcomes that sort of behavior). At our bigger events, there's always a literature table to toss down flyers, postcards, and other paraphenalia about events around town. Most importantly, we can pretty much guarantee there will be someone there you've never met before. As one of our members said, "You are bringing together people who might never get together otherwise - if that ain't a step towards justice I don't know what is."
