The 5th Anniversary of GREEN DRINKS, the Pittsburgh Green Innovators Project event, will be held on Friday, March 20th, 2009, 5-8 pm at the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern. The evening’s host will be State Senator Jim Ferlo and as an added attraction, you can meet Senator Ferlo’s robotic friend “Solo”!
What is GREEN DRINKS? This is how they describe themselves:
“Every month, people who work in the environmental field or have an interest in a greener planet meet up for drinks at places all around the world at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “Are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.”
So, this is a business/social/networking event. It might also be an interesting environment in which to meet your senator–he probably doesn’t bring that robot just anywhere.
GREEN DRINKS, Friday March 20, 5-8 pm. Complimentary beer and snacks, cash bar open. Bloomfield Bridge Tavern (smoke free), 4412 Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15224.
