It’s a Wrap

It’s wrap-up time from the climbing fundraiser held in July with Rock Jungle Boulders on Monday Sept 16.

It’s the DirtBag Cafe‘s Open Mic night taken up a notch. Adding a contest to create a signature beverage for the Project, you get to taste a flight of four creations by local mixologists who have taken up the challenge to make something new and representative of aquatic ecosystems.

Everyone gets a card to judge the creations, then we match the public reviews against the critics. What will be created? Who will win? Add some terrific open mic entertainment and it is guaranteed to be a great evening out. Many thanks to the Dirtbag Cafe for hosting this event.
