A group of Wake County, NC parents decided to celebrate the end of the school year by making a happy hour reservation at the popular Raleigh dining spot Wye Hill Kitchen & Brewing. The restaurant seemed happy enough at first to accommodate the party of thirty…until they were informed of the conservative political leanings of certain members of the gathering.
Libs of Tik Tok shared the informant’s post:

From the article:
A reservation at a Raleigh restaurant for a group of women and men celebrating the end of the school year was canceled after the restaurant found out some of those attending were associated with the Wake County group Moms for Liberty.
Kari Donovan, a member and spokesperson for the Wake County Chapter of Moms for Liberty, told Carolina Journal in a phone interview that Julie Page, chair of the local chapter, made the reservation at Wye Hill Kitchen & Brewing as a happy hour for moms she knew to celebrate the end of the school year.
She posted the invitation Tuesday on the group’s Facebook page without mentioning the location. Donovan said attendees needed to send an inquiry to find out where it would take place on Friday. Page sent the invite to members of the group directly.
In total, 30 people responded, including men, some women who were not affiliated with the Moms for Liberty group, and the rest who were members. Unbeknownst to Page, one of those members went by an assumed name.
We personally can’t imagine being this emotionally invested in how a group of people we don’t agree with politically spend their non-political time. We also can’t imagine organizing a thing called a “Summer of Rage” and still thinking we’re the good guys but hey, that’s just us.
Seriously do they think they are the good people in this?
