Cocktail hour: Join your fellow environmentalists and Transition Charlottesville members for Green Drinks, a monthly, organic, self-organization gathering of people who think, eat, sleep, and live green. This month’s meet-up is on Thursday, August 8, at 6pm at Brookville Restaurant. 

Big rollers: Ladies, strap on your helmet and come enjoy an easy paced ride through town for Community Bikes’ weekly Women’s Bike Night.

3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion.
