Friday Harbor Green Drinks
FRIDAY HARBOR GREEN DRINKS!
We had an absolutely fantastic April Green Drinks hosted by Stan the Wine Man. Celebrating Earth Day as well as the one year anniversary of GD Friday Harbor, we tasted an array of biodynamic and sustainable wines from around the globe and tried our darnedest to make our way through two kegs of organic Aslan beer out of Bellingham (!) Thanks again Stan!
We also unveiled the Friday Harbor Green Drinks logo. Attached here - have a look! Thank you to local artist Glenn Hendrick for this lovely piece of work.
May's Green Drinks will be Thursday, May 19th and is generously hosted by San Juan Islands Museum of Art
. This will showcase the upcoming exhibit, Fragile Waters
, offering 117 black and white works by three lifelong environmentalists including Ansel Adams. This exhibit calls attention to the very critical resource of water in its many forms. https://sjima.org/exhibitions/fragile-waters/
. If you've heard me nattering on about this exhibit you know that I am completely smitten with it, but honestly it really is fantastic. There will be FREE entrance to the museum for this event, and drinks will be sold by the glass. Great chance to see it with your buddies - come check it out!
In summary, May's Green Drinks is:
Thursday, May 19th 5 - 7pm
San Juan Islands Museum of Art
540 Spring Street
Friday Harbor, WA 98250
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 for May's Green Drinks!
Green Drinks is an international,
unstructured, self-organizing network of environmental folks or those interested in getting involved
Friday Harbor's Green Drinks was
established last spring and has been growing! So far we've had a great mix of those in non-profit organizations, government,
local business, the kayak community, FHL folks, general community,
visitors and even a few passerby
Always the Third Thursday of each month. (Thirsty Third Thursday!) Join us at this month's Thursday
spot for a glass of wine or a pint, and always some good chat.
