Green Drinks NYC hosts its "Midsummer Night Soiree" from 6-10PM at Tavern on the Green (Central Park at West 67th Street) on Wednesday, July 15, 2009.
Tavern's chic outdoor garden will serve as the backdrop to social networking for environmental enthusiasts. Green Drinks NYC is also celebrating its eighth anniversary of connecting New York City's environmental community. The event will feature a musical performance by the Nick Myers Trio, organic cocktail specials, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, giveaways, dynamic speakers and dancing under the stars.
