We're trying a bi-monthly schedule starting in March.

Many have asked to increase the frequency of Green Drinks, so for 2014, we're going to go to a bi-monthly schedule starting on March 26th.  Why March and not April?  Because certain even-numbered months have built-in conflicts, namely December, October, and a lackluster experience in August

My only concern about this new schedule is that the supply of Green Drinks meet-ups will be prove greater than the demand for them and attendance will suck.  So if you've asked for more Green Drinks, be there and bring friends.  And if you'd intended to come in February but didn't because a big snowstorm hit right when Green Drinks was starting, come in March.  (We did have a good turnout and a good time, by the way.  I just noticed that several who said they were coming didn't.)

That is all.

See you tomorrow at Bitters!

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night!  7 pm at Bitters.  And just to be clear, anyone is always welcomed.

Wind energy . . . it happens.

Next Wednesday, we will be at Bitters!

Well, talk about good timing.  Bitters has re-opened and with enough of an advance to clarify plans for the group.  So our next meet-up is on the 19th at our beloved Bitters.  So far, the RSVP's have been quite good, too.

Here's a very compellling interview of Bill McKibben, founder of

Meeting in two weeks!

I'm really looking forward to the next Green Drinks in two weeks.  Our hope is to meet at Bitters as usual, but currently, it's closed.  If it's not open in a week (the 12th), we'll meet at Bridie Molloy's on George Street.

Last weekend, I watched a compelling documentary, Greedy Lying Bastards, which charted the misinformation campaign of the fossil fuel industry.  It was quite good, though sobering.  ("Sobering" . . . thank god for Green Drinks!)
