Check out the details below for the next Green Drinks Arlington Happy Hour


 

Eco-Speed Networking in Shirlington

NetworkingHandshakeJoin your favorite Eco-Minded and Sustainability gurus for a evening of networking. Looking to grow your network? Find a job? Learn more about environmental issues or sustainability and energy, then this will be a great place for you!
Bring a friend or colleague to join in the speed-networking fun! 6-8:30p at Samuel Beckett's Irish Gastro Pub in Shirlington.

 

About the Venue: "As you look through our menu you may think “this is not the Irish food that I am used to seeing” Our menu is a collaboration of items from old Ireland to modern Ireland. We are trying to present to you an example of what we loved to eat growing up in Ireland and what is now popular from some of our favorite haunts back home. We promise to offer you the freshest produce, and source as much as we can from local suppliers. We have a mixture of staff from local talent, to staff that we have brought over from Ireland. We would like you to think of us as your stepping stone to Ireland. Our ambassadors will try and answer all your questions on Ireland while serving you great comfort food and premium drinks in a warm environment. So why Samuel Beckett’s you might ask? I was trying to find some connection locally when thinking of a name for the pub. While walking down Campbell Street it was there staring me in the face. The theatre was my link. Shirlington village is very much an artistic neighborhood, and signature theatre is one of the best in the country. Signature theatre actually has actually performed several of Beckett’s plays."

Recently she has returned to her love of sculpture and is working as a resident artist at the Lee Arts Center where she has been creating terra cotta sculptural pieces and kiln fired jewelry using PMC clays, which become solid metals such as bronze and most recently white copper which is reminiscent of pewter.

ArtPints 2013

For the 4th year in a row, Green Drinks Arlington's founders, Genevieve Concannon and Marina Ospina along with Sweet Root Village bring you a festive party to engage the community in local art, beer and the spirit of the Season- Giving.

 

Since we had another successful event last year, we have added even more local artisans and boutiques from Arlington and Northern Virginia! We hope to arouse your senses with food, fun and creativity and foster more community growth. Shop local artists photography, paintings, pottery, glass art, floral design, gift baskets and more while listening to laid back music and sipping beer. Doesn't that sound better than wresting people for sweaters at the Mall? Yeah, we thought so!

Join us and enjoy music, beer by P. Brennan 's Irish Pub and Restaurant and a gallery of unique art by various local and free-trade artists!

partnerships with organic farmers, but we also ensure our ingredients are of the highest quality. It's about finding the very best, in a way that is good for all of us.

This philosophy influences every part of the way we do business, from the food we serve to the design of our stores to the materials we use. We use reclaimed wood and recycled Gypsum in construction, energy-efficient lamps, and environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and packaging.
