Tomorrow: Celebrate National Trails Day with the ACE Hike & Happy Hour!

Tomorrow (Saturday June 2nd) Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment will celebrate National Trails Day with our 4th Annual Hike & Happy Hour!

We'll meet at the footbridge to Roosevelt Island at 5pm, The Green Miles will be wearing a green t-shirt to make him easy to spot. I'd recommend Metroing to Rosslyn and walking over to Roosevelt; parking in the Roosevelt lot is at a premium on nice days. From there, we'll get a tour of the invasive plants choking Roosevelt Island with Jan Ferrigan, Arlington County Invasive Program Manager, ACE Board member, and all-around cool person. Families are welcome to come for just the hike!

Once the hike wraps up, we'll walk over to Continental in Rosslyn (21+). Continental has excellent happy hour specials through 8pm, like half price on certain beers, half price rail drinks, and cheap appetizers. If you're not available for the hike and just want to meet us at the bar, we'll be there by 6:30pm. We'll have lots of information on the ACE Green Living Challenge as well as some bar trivia.

In case you missed it, here's a history of the Hike & Happy Hour (or as I like to call it, the Triple H).

If you're not in the DC area, you can find a National Trails Day event in your area at the American Hiking Society's website!
