This nonprofit's got it figured out: Green Drinks (a "volunteer-driven group created to connect and grow Portland's environmental community") hosts short lectures at classy joints around town, luring in potential activists to learn about saving the planet while they get their drink on. This month's conscientious cocktail party will be Tuesday, March 6, from 6:30 to 9 pm at none other than SE Portland's Olympic Provisions (107 SE Washington St). In addition to hosting sponsor Green Savers for the evening, charcuterie masters OP will be offering happy hour prices, appetizers and a limited menu for purchase. Learn something about conservation, chat with other people who care, and try the sopressata if you haven't already. Seriously, it's fantastic.
