There’s a little spot in Arlington, Virginia called the Liberty Tavern. It’s a popular watering hole and meet-up point for D.C.-area libertarians, in part I guess because of the name, but more likely because it’s a short hop from the George Mason Law School, home to the libertarian non-profits the Mercatus Center and the Institute for Humane Studies.
Jacob Grier notes that Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine has teamed up with the owners of the Liberty Tavern to relaunch his campaign for a Virginia statewide smoking ban.
If you live in the area, you might want to keep that in mind when deciding where to spend your beer and bar food budget. Better yet, drop the tavern’s owners a note to let them know why you’ll no longer patronize them.
