FRIDAY HARBOR GREEN DRINKS! 

Hallooo Green Drinks friends! 
 
Hope everyone has had a great summer and is excited for the arrival of calm, cool Autumn. To celebrate the end of the season, September's Green Drinks will be a HARVEST PARTY at Brickworks! More on that but first:
 
MEGA THANK YOU to Friday Harbor Labs and to captain Meegan Corcoran for a spectacular August Green Drinks onboard the R/V Centennial. There were around 50 of us and we had a chance to hear about what this vessel is used for and some of the super interesting research happening through FHL. If you would like to learn more about utilizing this vessel contact Meegan at: meeganc@uw.edu
 
Now... if you had a chance to attend the Green Drinks Two Year Birthday Party at Brickworks back in April, you will remember 100+ of your buddies and a smashing good time. September will be a similar set up, minus the lovely food vendors. This event is once again generously hosted by the San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild, an organization which fosters vibrant, resilient and sustainable local food programs in San Juan County. This will be a great chance to hear about the various Ag Guild programs and how they intertwine, feeding our local community with food products, environmental stewardship and economic opportunities.

 

This event will go later than usual and feature more excellent tunes and another DANCE PARTY, hurrah!! We are also lucky enough to welcome special guest, MC Hyphen8d, taking the stage around 8:30pm. You may have caught this lad performing at the third Art Market, opening for the Good Husbands - it's solid stuff, people. Don't miss this free show and come shimmy the summer off to some good beats. All are welcome. 

 
There will be San Juan Island Brewing Co. beer, wine and non-alcoholic options available for purchase (bring yo dollas). As always, anyone is welcome to make an announcement, happening at around 7:00pm. Announcements need to be about community events, actions, or groups; be respectful and open to everyone...and also under two minutes each. Feel free bring any flyers or organizational materials even if you are not doing announcements - there will be lots of table space for displaying items.  
 
If you are interested in volunteering for this event please let me know. Need some folks to help wrangle kegs, pour beer and wine, set up or break down and a couple of bouncers. (Kidding on the last one.) 
 
In summary, September's Thirsty Third Thursday is: 
 
Thursday​, September 21st, ​
5:30 - 11pm - HARVEST PARTY!
Announcements around 7:00pm
MC Hyphen8d around 8:30pm
