LA Green Drinks - Culver City, September 7th

LA Green Drinkers,

Thanks to everyone who endured the garlic attack at the Silver Lake Green Drinks - the upcoming Green Drinks ( Thursday, September 7th ) should have markedly less falling objects... we hope.

You can read a humorous report on the incident at
Greening Los Angeles, One Vodka Martini At A Time

Also, remember that UCLA is having sustainable business training this month - more information and a link below!

See you on the 7th!

We will also take back any extra literature back and bring them to the next Green Drinks.
