But KGNU Community Radio is out to combine both the honoring and the swilling parts at tonight's Drinkin' with Lincoln event, an evening devoted to Lincolnian facts and trivia...and a bit of silly quaffing in the name of Honest Abe.
The discussion will feature a distinguished panel of local scholars, but the fun begins whenever the words "emancipation," "state's rights" or "insanity" are mentioned. Can you hold your suds?
Find out from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight at Shine in Boulder; admission to the all-ages event (okay, you can quaff a Coke, too) is a $5 donation to the volunteer-supported public radio station. Visit the website for details.
