Drink a Beer For the Mad River

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.

-Andrew Goff
