We're excited to be a part of the INDY Give!Guide for the second year in a row. Last year, we raised over $2000 from our INDY G!G campaign! In addition, we raised the most revenue in our category from individuals under the age of 36, and won an extra $1000 from Triangle Community Foundation!

INDY Give!Guide helped us reach our end-of-year fundraising goals, and this year we hope to raise even more, of course! We've got incredible incentives to motivate giving (think: holiday gifts that do good, locally)Free 12 oz bag of Counter Culture Coffee with $30 donations and above AND Free Fair Game Beverage Company Tour and Tasting for 2 with $35 donations and above!

Featured Workshop:
Drink n' Think: Prohibition & Repeal Day Party  
with Gary Philips & Colbey Reid
Dec. 7th, 4-7 PM | $25 
The most extraordinary feature of the history of American cocktail consumption is its prohibition. No other western civilization has turned to law to substantiate moral prejudice against alcohol consumption. 

This workshop explores what Prohibition reveals about the cultural energies and desires brought into greater relief through repression. That is: Prohibition, a historical episode, actualized a philosophical attitude. Tonight we'll endeavor to understand that attitude by examining its origins and antitheses in a thinking and drinking party that commemorates the Repeal of the Volstead Act on December 5, 1933.

Suggested Dress: Speakeasy style!

Featured Story:
Physicist shares plan to get U.S. off coal, oil

What if we could make energy do our work, without working our undoing? Could we have fuel without fear?

These are the questions world-renowned physicist and sustainability consultant, Amory Lovins, used to open his 2012 TED Talk, "A 40-year plan for energy," based on the ideas he shares in his new book, Reinventing Fire. Built on thirty years of scientific research, Reinventing Fire maps pathways for running a 158%-bigger U.S. economy in 2050, but needing no oil, coal, or nuclear energy to run it.

Lovins will be sharing the research and findings that informed his book, as well as his plan to free us from reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear power, at a free talk this Sunday, November 9th, from 7-9 pm, at Chapel Hill's Varsity Theater.
Free of Charge. Limited Seating. 
Sponsored by UNC's Institute for the Environment.
