December 6: Gathering of the Reason Tribe

|

The January issue of Reason is hitting newsstands now, and we're celebrating with a party on Wednesday at the upstairs bar at Dragonfly, at 1215 Connecticut Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m.

Most of the D.C.-based Reasoners will be there -- Radley Balko, Kerry Howley, David Weigel -- and I'll be coming down from Baltimore. There will be special guest stars as well, arriving from every corner of the country:

From Los Angeles: David Nott, president of the Reason Foundation.

From Dallas: Jacob Sullum, a senior editor at the magazine and the author of the beloved classic Saying Yes: In Defense of Drug Use.

From Boston: Katherine Mangu-Ward, an associate editor at the magazine and the author of one of January's feature articles, a report on the maturing private space-travel industry.

From across town: Julian Sanchez, a contributing editor at the magazine and the author of another January story, this one on new search technologies and the Fourth Amendment.

From anywhere people read Reason: You!

Those coordinates again: Wednesday, December 6, 6:30 p.m., upstairs at Dragonfly, 1215 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, D.C.

Special note: If you'd like to be added to Reason's Evite list for D.C.-area events, please send an email to events@reason.com.

  1. Completely Off Topic — I submit this 2 min. video without comment

  2. Just wondering: why do so many liberty-loving Reason writers live in the DC area, home of big-government? Wouldn’t you guys be happier in Alaska somewhere?

  3. I want to know, in the article, does Julian Sanchez refer to that scene in Total Recall where Arnold Schwarzenegger goes through the X-Ray machine, ’cause that was awesome.

  4. “Completely Off Topic — I submit this 2 min. video without comment”

    Where does one go in order to slap her?

  5. Dan T.

    They do it just to annoy you.

  6. If anybody’s going to be travelling to D.C. for the big event (no doubt!), don’t miss a summit with New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson & a delegation from Mexico to discuss sane and workable immigration plans, at the Capitol from 1 to 2 pm!

    Email me for details!

  7. Some day, you guys need to plan a party in northern California.

  8. It would be most splendid if you folks could gather in a different state once a month, or once a quarter…say – reason’s traveling roadshow. If you gathered within 200 miles of where I live I might be able to attend.

  9. Is that by METRO Center? For some reason the hipster-style website does not reveal that info for us non-hipsters.

  10. why do so many liberty-loving Reason writers live in the DC area, home of big-government?

    That same question was posed some years ago when Reason decided to make the move into the belly of the beast. Some readers (and editors) wondered if Reason would lose its soul and become corrupted by Beltway Disease. My own opinion is that the magazine and especially the blog has moved further to the left and has lost much of its prior optimism to increasing pessimism and sarcasm. Still fairly unique, however, and a notch or two above the rest.

  11. I would suggest that the appearance of moving to the left, while perhaps partially true, is a response to the fact of who is in power. Depending of course on exactly what you mean by “left.”

  12. Just wondering: why do so many liberty-loving Reason writers live in the DC area, home of big-government?

    Maybe for somewhat the same reason that doctors seem to spend most of their lives around sick people — studying them, even — instead of just hanging out with healthy ones out in the country somewhere.
