Well lasses and laddies if it isn’t the weekend we’ve all been waiting for AKA St. Patty’s Edition, where the rivers run green and the beers taste exactly the same except they always put that weird green dye in them like #nothankyou.
Anyway, without further ado I will get you guys all informed for your awesome holiday weekend hit list, so sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

If you love a good whiskey tasting and class then you are going to be super stoked for the Watergate Hotel’s St Patrick’s Day themed event this Saturday afternoon.

Tomorrow 11 AM · National Education Association Headquarters
Perhaps for St. Patrick’s Day your less interested in overindulgence and something more along the lines of community leadership floats your boat. Perhaps you’re one of those super annoying individual is that loves to make everyone look way worse than you just by proximity to your sheer existence (don’t worry — I can totally relate).
So, my point is that the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum is hosting this awesome for him which is looking to bring together a national network of women who have “ lead environmental efforts in their communities, organizations and governmental agencies.”
This forum will host an open discussion that will explore their professional journeys and give attendees greater insight into various best practices, reflections and leadership lessons. It will also feature a robust panel which includes Leslie Fields of the Sierra Club, Irma Munoz of Mujeres de la Tierra, Cynthia Peurifoy — formerly U.S. EPA Region 4 Office of Environmental Justice (retired) — and Effie Turnbull Sanders of the South Los Angeles Transit Empowerment Zone.
