ATLANTA GREEN DRINKS is a monthly social networking event for people who care about the environment/sustainability.
Please join us for February's gathering hosted by THE MAMMAL GALLERY, one of the driving forces in the effort to breathe new life into South Downtown and historic South Broad Street. Since Mammal Gallery opened its doors as a not-for-profit music venue & collaborative performance/gallery space in 2013, the once thriving commercial district – now emerging arts community – has become home to the Broad Street Visitors Center, Downtown Players Club, Murmur and Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery (just round the corner on Forsyth), with hopefully many more creatives, progressives and arts organizations to follow. This event will highlight the area's new BEACONS Project.
#GoatFarmBEACONS has the hunch that the right kind of density builds the right kind of arts district. The Goat Farm Arts Center is partnering with creative individuals to rehab not raze the unused and beautiful spaces of South Downtown Atlanta. Have an idea? A thought? Come by and chat with organizers &/or visit BeaconsAtl.com.
Free entry. Mammal Gallery offers beer (non-profit donations accepted) + we'll have free liquor (whiskey, rum & mixed drinks) courtesy of INDEPENDENT DISTILLING COMPANY, a Decatur-based outfit that produces small batch handcrafted spirits focusing on the flavors & soul of the south... All are welcome, 21+ to drink.
Limited street parking on Broad St & surrounding blocks. Paid lot at 34 Broad St (right side of street just before you hit Mammal Gallery on left; look for Tilt's Elevate Atlanta flag mural. Find additional parking info here. Five Points MARTA Station is but a .1 (2 min) walk from the gallery and there's plenty of guarded bike parking available out front.
