GreenDrinks Eco-Minded Fun Co-Sponsored by Raconteur This week

| No Comments


WHEN: 7 to 9PM, Tuesday 7th September 2010
RULE: First Tuesday of every month
WHO: Anyone working on environmental issues, studying them, or looking for technical support in living and working greener.
WHY: Fun, contacts, alcohol (or not), info, gossip, inspiration, business and pleasure.
NEW: Just go up to someone and say "are you green?", and you'll be made welcome.


WHERE: BACK ROOM at our NEW VENUE The Raconteur, 431 Main Street, Metuchen, NJ 08840. It's the sexy little bookstore and literary center of gravity where you always wanted to hang out.

HOW: Walk, cycle, bus, or NJ Transit (Northeast Corridor, Metuchen Stop): Downtown Metuchen, NJ. Taxi or car OK if more than 2 passengers ;)

BYBO: Yes, we're meeting at a bookstore, but you're welcome to bring your favorite wine or beer to share. Homebrew is encouraged!

It all started in 1989 at a pub called the Slug and Lettuce in Northern London, in which a handful of eco  conscious mates pulled some tables together and drank some beer. The concept evolved into GREEN DRINKS and now it's global. Each city has an organizer who arranges meetings in bars and restaurants (providing the greenest beer possible, and by green we mean enviro-minded, not colored; in our case, Climax, locally brewed in Roselle Park). Come have a beer and get green.

Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. 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.

Globally, Green Drinks has a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you'll be made welcome. Just say, "are you green?" and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there's always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.
