Live Green Summer Block Party, DC

Tonight was Live Green's third birthday bash and oh, what fun it was!  Inside Local 16, there was fun a-brewin' when we arrived. Because I was one of the first 100 people to come in, I got two free drinks instead of one! The event was sponsored by a number of companies including VeeV, which they claim is the world's first acai spirit. I got a drink that had VeeV mixed with lemonade and it tasted pretty good.

The food served was from Java Green, Cafe Green, and, to my delight, Elizabeth's Gone Raw! I got a little of everything. My favorites of the night were the mandu (Korean potstickers), Elizabeth's raw kale chips, and the chips with queso.

At the Elizabeth's table, they were giving away raw cocoa butter in a little box with a tag that stated, "Heat to 105 degrees. For baking, for skin awakening, for the occasional love making." :-O  Love the marketing!

Downstairs, there was a silent auction with a number of great gifts including gift certificates to restaurants, yoga classes, and even ZipCar.  There was also a Live Green-sponsored raffle.

Towards the end of the night, they brought out the cake prepared by Sticky Fingers Bakery. It was a white cake with vanilla icing. The cake was soft and moist; the icing so satisfying.  On the way out, they handed out gift bags with Vega smoothie packs inside.

Thanks to everyone who made this happen -- the sponsors, Steve Ma, and Live Green!
