Join the ecoRI News team in celebrating our ninth birthday. Everything at this ultra-green party will be eaten, imbibed, recycled reused or composted. We’ll hold a pre-Bash VIP cocktail hour (VIP ticket required) at 2 p.m. at the Troop PVD bar. Then we’ll move outdoors to the adjacent courtyard for the main event from 3-5 p.m. VIP ticket holders will enjoy a free drink (on us) plus a few snacks at the bar. Attendees of the main event can expect a build-your-own slider station (veg options available) and satellite cash bar featuring Revival beer along with other beverage options. Plus everyone will have a chance to enter to win raffle prizes from local businesses, including a kayak (with oars, life vest, and roof rack) from Ocean State Job Lot. We’ll also be auctioning off a weeklong stay at a vacation home in New Hampshire.
