It's refreshing to meet other people who care about the environment. It's also refreshing to care about the environment with a beer in hand.
Tonight, you can do both. Join Sacramento Green Drinks at its monthly mixer, scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at midtown's Green Living Center, located at 1931 H Street.
Sacramento Green Drinks is an informal monthly event uniting people who work in the environmental field (and people who generally give a hoot about environmental issues). Each first Thursday of the month the group assembles for a session ("meeting" sounds too buttoned-up: green drinks is all about being low-key and low-emission!), in which greenies from across Sacramento sip, mingle and network with like-minded individuals.
Since its inception in June 2008, Sacramento Green Drinks has blossomed in popularity, drawing a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. New members are always welcome, too -- just show up and ask "Are you green?", and event organizers Sarah Piper and Richard Noss will see to it that you meet some new friends.
Says the Green Drinks Web site: "These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. Everyone invites someone else along, so there's always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network."
Come jump on the greenwagon tonight and help Sacramento Green Drinks toast to a new green economy! For more information, contact Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org or Rick email@example.com.
