Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013's Lowdown

If you were angling to spend your Tuesday knocking back a few with a gaggle of enviros, well, good news. The sentinels of clean water at Mad River Alliance are throwing themselves an anniversary party to celebrate a year of watershed improvements. And they'll do it with beer.

Those that 299 it over to Mad River Brewery have the chance to gorge themselves on local delectables -- Cypress Grove Chevre, Brio, Becks and Ramone's, to name a few -- while filling their ears with river-friendly tones of the Sunnybrae Jazz Collective. Oh, and since this is naturally a fundraiser, you may reacquaint yourself with the concept of silent auctions, this one featuring no shortage of local art.

Raise thy glass to the Mad! Long may she flow.

If there's one thing about environmentalists, they love that booze. Happy birthday to Mad River Alliance, you drunks!
