Celebrate Milton Friedman’s Legacy with Liberty on the Rocks this Friday night!

Join Liberty on the Rocks this Friday night, July 29 to toast to Milton Friedman on what would have been his 99th birthday (well, the 31st will be, but it’s close!).

Mr. Friedman was a free market economist, statistician, author and Nobel Prize winner for his work with economics. He spent much of his life spreading the message of not only free markets, but liberty and freedom, across the globe.

To celebrate the life and work of this phenomenal man, Liberty on the Rocks will host a night of remembrance, complete with a short video of Mr. Friedman discussing many different aspects of liberty and free markets, which will include a message from Mr. Jon Caldara of the Independence Institute. So join us as we raise our glass to Milton Friedman and his legacy!

Don’t know much about Mr. Friedman? All the more reason for you to attend! Check out this great Youtube video of him on Phil Donahue’s show in 1979. Poor Phil didn’t stand a chance against him ; )

We will have DOOR PRIZES, FREE APPETIZERS (while they last), and FREE DRINK tickets to the FIRST TEN ATTENDEES! (limit $7.00 value) You don’t want to miss this event!

After we conclude the festivities, we will head a few blocks down to Marlowes, where the Centennial Institute is hosting an after-hour get together with Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute. The first round of drinks is on them, so be sure to stick around for that!
