Gorge Owned Business Network (GO!) is hosting the first Gorge Green Drinks of 2012 at Crossfit Hood River in the Hood River Heights on Thursday, January 12, 2012. This month’s event features Crossfit founder Jeri McMaster as well Rod Parmenter, founder of PocketFuel. Volcanic Bottle Shoppe, a specialty beer seller located in The Heights, will be pouring beer and wine.
While fitness and beer drinking aren’t the most common pairing for a networking event, it’s exactly the kind of cross-pollination Green Drinks aims to achieve, says Becky Brun, Founder and Director of Gorge Owned Business Network. “We’re mixing up our Green Drinks venues in 2012,” Brun says. “About half of the events will be at bars and the other half at businesses. With many people starting new fitness routines in the New Year, Crossfit and PocketFuel are a great combo for January.”
Jeri McMaster will explain the Crossfit history and philosophy, and instructors will be on hand to answer questions. Rod Parmenter, co-founder of Hood River-based PocketFuel, will be sampling their nutritional nut butters designed for on-the-go energy. PocketFuel recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to get PocketFuel to market. Volcanic Bottle Shoppe, a specialty beer seller located in The Heights, will be pouring beer and wine. The event is free and open to the public.
When: Thursday, January 12, 2012, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
