Once again, DGR had a full house for the Democratic candidates’ Debate Watch Party on September 12th. Food, drink, discussion and policies were enjoyed by all. We will be hosting future events as we get closer to the primaries and the list of candidates narrows. Thanks to Trish Morgan for arranging our two parties, Fusion Restaurant and Bar for hosting, and all of you who participated!
VENUE CHANGE! Casa Ortega has gone out of business. Starting August 15, we will meet at Sizzler’s, 6631 Clay Street, Riverside, off Van Buren Blvd. Those wishing to eat should arrive between 6 and 7 to place order and pay at counter.
We are sorry to announce that Casa Ortega has gone out of business and will no longer be the site of our monthly meeting. The owners were very supportive and accommodating to DGR, and we are very sorry about this turn of events for the family.
We have arranged with Sizzler to host us starting with our next meeting on August 15 through December. There is a modest fee for use of their meeting room, but it can also be expanded for larger events, if need be. There are very few meeting spaces available in Riverside, we have found, and most charge well over a $100.00 per use, so Sizzler is our best option at this time.
Due to the nature of Sizzler’s food service, we recommend that those wanting to eat arrive between 6 and 7. Orders are placed at counter and paid for as you enter restaurant. They also have a salad bar. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m., as usual.
The address is 6631 Clay Street, off Van Buren Blvd., Riverside.
DGR’s first Debate Watch Party was a great success July 30th! We packed Fusion Bar and Restaurant and were happy to have Senator Roth and Representative Takano in attendance. Our event was listed with the Sanders, Mayor Pete and Warren campaigns and a number of their supporters were there, along with fans of Williamson. Fusion’s rep was also happy with the turn-out, so we hope to host another event for the next debate in September. Thank you to all who attended!
