Green Drinks Kent - May
May Green Drinks Kent is Tuesday May 22, 5:00 to 7:00, at Riverside Wines, on the deck overlooking the Cuyahoga.
Green Drinks is a mildly-structured social gathering of environmental professionals and interested non-professionals. Topics of conversation may include sustainable food production and distribution, transportation in a low-carbon economy, and a perennial favourite, backyard chickens.
Tuesday is "retail wine night", meaning one may purchase a bottle of wine for consumption on the premises, at the retail takeout price, without paying the customary corkage premium. Dollar-off draft beer every night 4:00 - 7:00, so come early. More details on the venue http://riverside-wine.com/ Conversation will be lively, perhaps livelier as the evening progresses through the reduced-price wine and beer. Affirmative topics of conversation, encouraging each other to participate in activities that will result in a More Sustainable Community, are favoured. But, the deck is big enough that if you really want to express negative opinions about the topic of your choice, space may be found for you closer to where the trains come by. There is no charge for admission. The restaurant does require a $10.00 per person minimum order. You may wish to bicycle to the event, but keep in mind that a bicycle is a "vehicle" for purposes of Ohio traffic laws, which may be of more concern on the way home than on the way to the event.

Enhancements over the years have included a large outdoor patio, with a deck overlooking a narrow strip of the Cuyahoga River and an inspired food menu to complement wine tasting and just plain please the palate of your basic food snob. And dessert? No one's going to turn away a piece of chocolate cake or cheesecake from Riverside's selection.
