Drinking Houston Better -- For the Kids, Y'know? [5/02/2009 12:50:00 AM]:
I'm generally a non-drinker, myself, it's true, but even still, the entire concept of Poison Girl
's Drink Houston Better
deal. What's the idea? Well, you go to a bar (Poison Girl -- duh
), drink up, and the bar donates the proceeds from every bottle, shot, etc., you buy to a truly worthy cause.
This Sunday, May 3rd, the beneficiary of your drunkenness is especially cool in a help-the-community way. This DHB's proceeds will go to Workshop Houston, a local nonprofit that gets disadvantaged kids involved in it's five workshops -- the Bike Shop, Chopper Shop, Beat Shop, Style Shop, & Scholar Shop -- via classes, free use of their equipment, & fun stuff like bike rides (their Tour de Hood, coming May 24th, sounds especially cool). The place is absolutely one-of-a-kind in this city; they deserve all the help they can get.
Drinking starts at 5PM (well, the charitable kind, anyway) and runs on through to midnight, for the dedicated, good-hearted boozers of the bunch...
