Green Drinks Nov. 3, ETC.

Posted by Trish Riley, October 22, 2010

Thanks to all who attended our Green Drinks meeting at 706 on Oct. 6. Manager Aaron Newton provided a fine venue with delectable dinners and libations. Randy Wells shared info about the bike/run/walk event associated with UF’s Homecoming parade and RibFest. Mickey McKenzie told us about Keep Alachua County Beautiful (KACB) and their current activities.

Our next Green Drinks meeting will be held at Volta Tea and Coffee, 48 SW 2nd Street, 6 – 98 p.m. Nov. 3. Be forewarned that Volta offers only pastries, not dinner… but we’re there to drink and talk, right? Bring your cards and collateral and let me know if you have an announcement to make.

Cinema Verde Fundraiser at the new Urban Flats – Please bring your friends and join us for this opportunity to raise funds for Cinema Verde! From 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 9, Urban Flats (115 SE 1st Avenue) will host a fundraiser for Cinema Verde. All-you-can-eat and drink wine, flatbread and spreads for your $20 donation. We will be screening trailers of some of the films that we are considering for Cinema Verde. I hope to see you there!

In the meantime, here are a couple of events at UF that might interest Green Drinkers:

“Tapestry thinking and tapestry actions: weaving threads of science, arts, and the humanities to create the good life” in connection with the humanities course “What is the Good Life?”
