Earth Day Happenings on April 22

We've been going to Poste Earth Day events for years and always have a great time. Good to know someone is working on off-setting my ever-widening carbon footprint.

· Poste’s Rob Weland will roast a 400 pound pig from Eco Friendly Foods as Poste officially reopens the courtyard for service. The new “Garden” menu will be unveiled, and guests can enjoy $4 food and drink specials from 5:30 to 8:00. Proceeds from entry fees and food and beverage will go to Washington Youth Garden and Beet Street Gardens

· Firefly will give guests a $1 credit for every wine cork brought in for lunch and dinner (up to 22 corks per check), and will recycle all corks collected. Chef Danny Bortnick will also serve a five-course menu featuring produce from local farms.

· Jackson 20 unveils its new “Eco Hour” happy hour with an extensive canned beer list. A “Late Night Blackout” Happy Hour will be available from 11:00, where the restaurant will kill the lights and serve happy hour specials by candle light. Both happy hours will officially launch on Earth Day and will be available throughout the spring and summer months.

· Chef Dennis Marron at the Grille at Morrison House will serve a 100-mile menu candlelight dinner.

· The Butcher’s Block will host a biodynamic wine tasting featuring local food. This event is free to the public.
