Arts+Pints Event to Benefit Food Pantry

The Saturday afternoon event is sponsored by the Arlington chapter of Green Drinks.

The “Arts+Pints Bazaar” on Columbia Pike will feature local artists, music, and beer for the event supporting the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) this weekend.

“It’s just fun, it’s a little bit different, and this year we are hoping it's all that more special because we are hosting it in a different area in South Arlington,” said Genevieve Concannon, an organizer for the event.

Twelve local artists will be on hand selling goods for the Saturday event sponsored by the Arlington chapter of Green Drinks and Sweet Root Village. Green Drinks is an international organization that sponsors events for those in the energy and sustainability industries. Sweet Root Village is an Alexandria-based business that provides eco-friendly wedding services.

The event is from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at 2910 Columbia Pike, P. Brennan 's Irish Pub and Restaurant. Guests are asked to bring a food item for AFAC. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the group.

The local chapter of Green Drinks was started by locals Concannon and Maria Ospina three years ago and they’ve been hosting a December fundraiser every year since then. Typically, anywhere from 15 to 90 people attend periodic Green Drinks meetings, with the December fundraiser the most popular one.
