Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Drink for the Cause!

Good Morning Darlings!

A couple of weeks ago, Eric & I were lucky enough to be invited on a rafting trip down the Chattahoochee for the day.

It was a blast. And I cannot imagine what Atlanta would be like without our famous river. What if we couldn’t go rafting down the river in the summer?

You can hug the Hootch by supporting Cafe 640 in its efforts to keep it clean. And all you have to do is eat and drink. Check this out – buy one, get one free burgers on Mondays! You could also win a kayak!


SweetWater Drinkers Unite to Benefit Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper Efforts
Weekly Thursday Dates Begin July 21 at 6:40 p.m.

Atlanta, Georgia (July 21, 2011) – Beginning  Thursday, July 21, local dining favorite Café 640 (formerly Café di Sol) will introduce their weekly 420 at 640 series, a philanthropic effort benefiting the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper efforts. Guests will have the opportunity to give back to the Atlanta community, simply by stopping in for a SweetWater. Running through August 1, a portion of all SweetWater beer sales will be donated to the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. Guests will also receive a SweetWater glass to take home with their first purchase and can register for the chance to win a custom painted SweetWater kayak – perfect for a hot day drifting down the Chattahoochee. The winner of the kayak will be announced amongst live music and passed small plates at a September 1, 2011 bash at Cafe 640.

All you have to do is show up and drink!

About Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper:
Established in 1994, Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (UCR) is an environmental advocacy organization with more than 5,000 members dedicated solely to protecting and restoring the Chattahoochee River Basin—drinking water source for 3.5 million people. UCR was the 11th licensed program in the international Waterkeeper Alliance, now close to 200 organizations strong. From the north Georgia mountains to the Florida border, the Chattahoochee River is impacted by unplanned development, storm runoff and trash from industries, roads, and construction sites, and discharges from sewage treatment plants. Withdrawals from the river by municipalities and industries also affect its health through consumptive loss of water that is not returned to the river, impacting downstream water quality, recreation and ecology. While significant improvements have been made in the river, much remains to be accomplished. UCR actively uses advocacy, education, research, communication, cooperation, monitoring and legal actions to protect and preserve the Chattahoochee and its watershed.

Bottoms up!
