UPDATED School Board Meets in Bar: Open Meetings Violation?

This story from the Kitsap Sun describes the practice of the North Kitsap School Board to meet after the official meeting at a bar. Is this legal?

"The answer lies in what they talk about. If it's just about the Seahawks, it's fine, according to legal experts. If it's about anything that might color school district business,
it's not. "

Allied Law Group's Michele Earl-Hubbard is quoted in the story.

UPDATE: The Kitsap Sun writes this editorial on the board beer meetings.
