Here's How it Will Work
Here’s how it will work. Get a team together: 2 to 6 members. Cost will be $10 per team, payable at the door.
Galway Bay will offer a special fund raising menu (click here) - three courses for $25. The special menu will be available that evening from 5 to 10 p.m. with $10 from each meal participant generously donated by Galway Bay to Annapolis Green, along with the teams' entry fees of $10.
You don't have to eat dinner to play, but we hope you will!
We’ll have three courses of trivia questions with three prizes for the winning team in each and then a final round among the three winning teams to determine the overall winner for a really big prize!
Very important: You MUST call in your dinner reservation in advance and we do strongly suggest you call in your reservation to play. Call 410-263-8333.

Environmental Legislative Preview - State & County
We had a great, albeit FROZEN, Green Drinks at Galway Irish Pub. Our hosts, Galway Bay Irish Pub, provided the perfect cozy venue for a rainy, cold, yucky night. There was a lovely buffet of appetizers, more being passed by friendly servers, and of course, lots of Irish beer and other adult beverages! We were pleasantly surprised that so many Green Drinkers turned out on such a raw night. It was loads of fun.
Gree Drinkers discussed what might be on the horizon for the legislative session that will was about to start, and many n stepped across the street for a deeper discussion of these issues at a Legislative Preview event hosted by the Maryland League of Conservation Voters, at 86 Maryland Avenue.
Among the topics covered were:
- Phosphorous Management Tool
- Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard
- Defense of the Stormwater Legislation
- Environmental Justice, pesticides, and
- County Legislation
If you don't know what these issues are all about, find out on the Maryland League of Conservation Voters website.
A few headlines from the event:
Russell Rankin of Mid-Atlantic GEM (formerly of eCruisers), became a Founding One Hundred sponsor by presenting us with a $1000 check! He thanked us for introducing him to the business community in Annapolis when he first arrived in our town and kidded that he figured he’s eaten more than $1000 worth of food at Green Drinks in the past few years.
Severn Riverkeeper Fred Kelly, who has put himself on the installment plan, contributed another $100 toward his Founding One Hundred sponsorship. (You’re almost there, Fred!)
The Capital’s E.B. Furgurson III joined us and wrote a story about the LCV’s legislative preview and mentioned Green Drinks. Reporters are more than welcome at Green Drinks – please join us anytime!
Everyone is welcome at Green Drinks. There is no charge unless specified, and no RSVP is needed.

Green Drinks is a happy hour that gives the environmentally minded a chance to get to know one another in a fun informal way facilitating working together for a common cause: The Health of the Chesapeake Bay and to make Annapolis visibly the Greenest City in the State. It's free and no reservations are required. Cash bar. There are always soft drinks available. You don't have to drink alcohol to enjoy Green Drinks! Our gatherings, in a different location each month, feature venues that operate sustainably, and sustainable food and drink. We routinely draw from 150 to 200 environmentally conscious attendees.
There are over 800 Green Drinks organizations around the world. The Annapolis group is the one of the largest in the United States, following New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago and Portland. More about Green Drinks International.
