Friday Harbor Green Drinks
FRIDAY HARBOR GREEN DRINKS!
Had an absolute blast at the last Green Drinks. March was definitely the best turnout so far (I realize it was, ahem, St Patrick's Day but still). Everyone wore their green and we toasted to spring, the marine folks to the sea world end of captive breeding thing, and to generally being merry.
Anyone who knows me knows that Green Drinks is pretty much my favorite day of the month, but the next two coming up are going to be the best yet. Seriously. April's Green Drinks will be a kick-off Earth Day event, and celebration of the (official) One Year Anniversary of GD Friday Harbor! Wahoo! This will also be the unveiling of the new Logo for GD Friday Harbor by local artist Glenn Hendrick.
Stan the Wine Man (Stan Reitan) is graciously hosting this event. If you've been to his tastings, you know they are super fun. If you haven't - check them out! There will be a $10 cover for this event which will include biodynamic and organic wines from around the globe, organic beer from Aslan Brewing out of Bellingham, and wee nibbles. (Slightly different structure than a normal GD with the cover, but just trying to make sure to cover Stan's costs here.)
In summary, April's Green Drinks is:
This Thursday, April 21st. 5 - 7pm
The Wine Hut
76 Marguerite Place*
No actual parking on site so just park somewhere close by and meander over. A half block or so up Marguerite from Guard is a good option, or on Guard itself.
Looking ahead - Next Green Drinks

If you have ideas for a potential Green Drinks venue, or would be interested to host one, please let me know. It is great to have unique spots to meet up, especially as the restaurants get busier during the summer season. Some ideas that have been tossed around include: farm/ garden, barn, boat, organizations, front stoop, beach, etc. Remember that you are always welcome to pop by for a quick hello during the event! No need to stay the whole time.
Thanks everyone! As always spread the word and bring a buddy. See you Thursday!
