Clarendon has missed us, and we have been really wanting to check out Le Pain Quotidien, which is a great organically and when possible, locally sourced restaurant chain right in Clarendon, super-close to the Metro!
What could be better than to stop into a communal table inspired establishment to chat and network with friends during the first days of Spring?
More about Le Pain Quotidien:
“Whenever we can, we source organic ingredients. This way, we not only build lasting and meaningful
partnerships with organic farmers, but we also ensure our ingredients are of the highest quality. It’s about finding the very best, in a way that is good for all of us.
This philosophy influences every part of the way we do business, from the food we serve to the design of our stores to the materials we use. We use reclaimed wood and recycled Gypsum in construction, energy-efficient lamps, and environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and packaging.
It’s good for our bodies, our communities, and our earth.”

Green Drinks is just a fun happy hour to network and meet like-minded people who you can chat it up with about this that or the other thing… So, how do you do Green Drinks Arlington? Just show up and tell the hostess that you’re with Green Drinks! Bring a friend, colleague, or…just yourself… just come on out and have some people who are like-minded and get your sustainability on.

From the Orange Line… head towards the venue. There is plenty of metered street parking around if you are driving, and Capital Bike Share has put in a stop at the Metro Station exit. See you there!
