Green Drinks you say? No, it is not that March 17th fête, where people come together, drink green beer, and wear shamrocks. As fun as that sounds, Green Drinks is an international organization now active in 661 cities across the globe, and Arlington, Virginia is just one of those lucky towns.
Arlington Green Drinks is a gathering of eco-friendly enthusiasts, professionals, and activists who meet the third Thursday of each month to dine, drink, and discuss societal, economic, and environmental issues. It is a chance to rub elbows with some of the greenest folks in Arlington, make personal and business connections, collaborate, listen, and learn.
This eco-friendly society stays on the move, migrating to a different Arlington watering hole each month. The Liberty Tavern is the next stop for the green festivities. Located on Wilson Boulevard, in the center of Arlington, this family restaurant is locally owned and housed in a restored historic building. Stop by on Aug. 21 from 6-8:30 p.m. to take part in the next meeting and hear guest speaker Dr. Brian Czech, the President of Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy.
Can’t make this month’s meeting? No worries! There’s one every month and all you have to do is show up. Check out Arlington Green Drinks' website to discover the who, what, when, and where of their next congregation.
So while Saint Patrick’s Day it is not, you don’t have to wait until March 17 to make some valuable green connections in the Arlington community. Green Drinks gives Arlington residents an opportunity to enjoy some fantastic food, refreshing drinks, and stimulating conversation every month.
