Green Drinks Open House Party at Brave Space Design

Posted by Trish Riley, July 31, 2009
Hello, Gainesville Greens!

Those of you who you attended our last few Green Drinks meetings know that we’ve decided to move around town to showcase the many sustainable restaurants and businesses in our emerald city. Our meetings will continue to be held the first Wednesday of each month; be sure to watch your email box for notice of our meeting location. Please visit our GoGreenNation Forum or email us at to let us know if your sustainable restaurant or business would like to host a future Green Drinks meeting.

Our next meeting will be held 6 – 8-> p.m., August 5, at Brave Space Design:

Newcomers to town Nikki Frazier and Sam Kragiel have invited us to visit their new sustainable future design shop, Brace Space Design, and they’ve organized a fun evening for our networking party. Thank you, Nikki and Sam!

“Brave Space Design would like to invite you to Green Drinks at our newly opened furniture workspace. Brave Space has been making modern sustainable furniture in Brooklyn, NY for the past 5 years and has recently relocated to Gainesville. Please come join us for a summer shop-warming with beer donated by the local SwampHead Brewery and casual outdoor eats available. There will be furniture pieces on display and backyard games of skill: 60% chance of sawdust, 0% chance of splinters”

Gainesville’s first micro-brewery. High-quality beer brewed locally with natural ingredients. All of the spent grain from the brewing process is composted.
