Atlanta Ballet is graciously hosting our April Green Drinks at their Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre, a 55,000 sq ft, LEED Gold Certified, state-of-the-art facility located on the Westside. This month's event will include the usual networking & drinks (with complimentary beer & wine) plus we'll be treated to a preview performance from this season's "Quietly Walking," which focuses on the relationship between urbanization & deforestation and how we are in danger of losing our connection with the earth & with each other. Choreographer Gina Patterson will be joining us.
"Quietly Walking" is part of Modern Choreographic Voices, playing at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre April 17-19.

The historic Castle in Midtown Atlanta, a 12,000 sq ft mansion overlooking the Woodruff Arts Center, has recently undergone a beautiful renovation after decades of vacancy & deterioration. (While at the center of a preservation conflict in the 1980s, it was deemed a “hunk of junk.”) But after years of careful restoration, Castle Atlanta just opened as a newly redesigned restaurant/lounge & future hotel. We'd love for you to join us there for a special Atlanta Green Drinks the evening of Wed, Feb 11 from 5-10.
Free entry, cash bar drinks, all are welcome. Directions & Parking.
Please note, there will not be a formal Green Drinks event this month.
For those who would still like to check out The Luminary, a small informal group will be gathering at the bar (as previously planned) on Wed evening from 6-9 - please feel free to join, and we'll see you again in October!
Ration & Dram
With its two full bars, earth and metal decor, and two airy patios nestled amongst the trees, this multi-level industrial Arizona Lofts space in Kirkwood / Edgewood is one of our favorite new warm weather hangouts. Ration & Dram's Andy Minchow (a star mixologist and founding partner of Holeman & Finch) envisioned "a family-friendly neighborhood spot that people can walk or bike to, so it's not just a cocktail bar." The seasonally-based Southern fare menu is a quirky mix of bar food and fine dining entrees, with an emphasis on sourcing local and presenting healthy options. There's also a well-curated list of draft and bottled craft and imported beers, wines by the glass and bottle, creative cocktails, fresh juices and house-made sodas.
Ink & Elm
Simultaneously a lounge, restaurant, and tavern, Ink & Elm is a culinary enterprise that celebrates the deep history of Atlanta's Druid Hills neighborhood and the cultural legacy of its original designer: Frederick Law Olmsted. Drawing inspiration from Southern traditions and food culture, and showcasing the contemporaneous dimension and eclecticism of Executive Chef Stephen Sharp, Ink & Elm's food program revolves around local, organic, sustainable, and responsible procurement. The menu cycles are seasonal and offer a modern take on Southern, American cuisine. The dark and cozy tavern is loosely based on a turn-of-the-century landscape design studio and features oversized stools, comfortable booths, and a wide variety of scotches, bourbons, and whiskies. Cocktails are inspired by the seasonality of local ingredients, house-made tinctures, and the interesting liquors and liqueurs that are available today to create great recipes.
