“Hot Hot Hot: Fundraiser for Climate Action

A group of concerned, sustainability-minded individuals are co-hosting a benefit with the Midlands Beer Garden in Park View to combat climate change on Friday, April 28th, from 6-10pm. This event is part of the People’s Climate March “Week of Action”.

Kegs have been generously donated by Anderson Valley Brewing and Uinta Brewing. Any beers from these taps and all other proceeds will benefit Earthjustice, a nonprofit environmental law organization, fighting for action on climate change, environmental justice, and the health of our communities across the country.

In addition to drinking beers for a great cause, attendees will have the opportunity to take action and make their voices heard. The event will include stations for making rally signs for the People’s Climate March on April 29th and writing letters to lawmakers and local representatives.

Hot Hot Hot also will feature a visit and remarks from Earthjustice President, Tripp Van Noppen, and live music from The Kyle Lacy Trio.

Despite the serious mission of combating climate chamge, the goal of the evening is to focus on the fun. “We have a lot of work ahead, to stand for our environment, our communities, and future generations. Tonight, we recharge and toast to the good work Earthjustice is doing for all three.” – says organizer Rachel Abrahams on their vision of the evening.

      for goodness sake can’t we have a place where we adults can drink beers without the constant droves of strollers that get me so agitated i spill my craft IPA. My mustache wax melts with my fury every time i have to look at a child or hear their cute little voices interupt me trying to rap along with the latest cuts on the hippest new vinyl at my yuppie exclusive outdoor drinking establishment.

        Yes, and how can I possibly be expected to SOCIAL JUSTICE among other “concerned, sustainability-minded individuals” when there are kids around? We have to focus on “the serious mission of combating climate chamge (sic),” and learning how to use spellcheck.
        .
        As an aside, I love how businesses are targeting SJWs as profit centers. Nicely done.
