LOTR Happy Hour w/ Econ Professor Alexandre Padilla!

How Deep Is the Rabbit Hole?

Join us for happy hour this Wednesday evening, where we will be joined by special guest Professor Alexandre Padilla from Metropolitan State College. The main event for the evening will be a discussion about Public Choice Theory and why it matters. But as always, we’ll first kick things off with plenty of networking, cocktails and great discussion.

Main Event
Public Choice Theory analyzes the political process from an economics standpoint – and we can now easily understand why it has been labeled a “dismal science”! Among other things, the professor will explain why the mechanisms set up to ensure government works well are doomed to fail every time. The short discussion will begin at 7:30 and will run till 8pm. Q & A to follow.

When: Wednesday, July 11th from 6-9pm
Where: Choppers | 80 S. Madison Street in Denver
What: Happy Hour w/ Professor Alexandre Padilla!

Liberty Hour in Denver

Join fellow liberty advocates for food, cocktails and fun conversation this Wednesday night at Choppers in Cherry Creek!


Become part of discussions about capitalism, free markets, societies where no one rules with an iron fist – or whatever you feel like bringing up!

This week’s topic for discussion will be brought to us by our very own Patrick Kane, a recent high school graduate planning to make his way to George Mason University this fall where he will study philosophy.

Mr. Pat Kane of Liberty on The Rocks and the Open Government Institute of Colorado will be making a few short remarks regarding the mechanics of a stateless society in the American West. The information provided will be based off his senior thesis, which derived a large amount of research from the book, “The Not So Wild, Wild West: Property Rights on the Frontier” by Terry Anderson and Peter Hill.

Read a review in the Freeman Online!

This Wednesday we will meet on the patio (rather than the back room), where Choppers will be providing us with FREE APPETIZERS while they last! So stop by early to grab some grub.

When: Wednesday, June 6 from 6-9pm
Where: Choppers | 80 S. Madison
