In addition to celebrating the release of Ben Jervey's The Big Green Apple, you can toast the relaunch of the new and improved eco-logic website, the source for all things green in the Big Apple. Details on when to get your free drinks below.The party will be hosted at the Brooklyn Brewery, the only 100% wind-powered bar on the East Coast. The Brooklyn Brewery will generously offer an open bar of Brooklyn Lager from 8-9 p.m. after which a cash bar will prevail.
