HOW A TEETOTALER LEARNED TO LOVE GREEN DRINKS

Teetotalism is the practice or promotion of complete personal abstinence from alcoholic beverages. A person who practices (and possibly advocates) teetotalism is called a teetotaler or is simply said to be teetotal.  When at drinking establishments, teetotalers may often consume non-alcoholic beverages such as soft drinks, tea, coffee and mocktails.from Wikipedia
and yes, I had to look up the spelling.
My friend Gareth (obviously not his real name) wanted to go to Green Drinks.  In Tallahassee, like many places that host Green Drink events, this is an opportunity to network and meet people with like interests related to the environment, climate change,sustainability, going solar, biking, growing good food, land-use planning, protecting clean water, loving wildflowers and a host of other things.  
"But, I don't drink (alcohol), won't I feel out of place?" he asked.
I said, "No, Midtown Pass is a restaurant, also and in addition to some making some great guacamole and chips, they serve all types of sodas, iced tea etc".

So, he came and listened to the speaker,  He liked what he heard and came back to Green Drinks the next month. 
Sponsored by Sustainable Tallahassee, Green Drinks meets on the last Wednesday of every month at the Midtown Pass, 1019 N Monroe, Tallahassee, next to what sadly WAS the Paperback Rack and in the same strip as the restaurant, Masa.
