6/12 Mix it Up East Bay

Posted by novoscene on June 12, 2008

It’s time again for Mix It Up, the monthly meet ‘n drink get together for young and young at heart activists, artists and organizers in the East Bay.  Often firmly entrenched in some social justice campaign or another, Mix It Up offers a much needed chance for organizers to step away from the policy debates and funding crises and kick back with some fellow do gooders (and is it me, or is the activist set just full of hotties?). The night usually starts off with a short presentation and discussion-tonight the topic is “Public Art: Essential for a Vibrant City”- followed by all out networking, imbibing and revelry.  Green, eco friendly, sustainable revelry, of course.  Take a brake from saving the world for a few hours and have a beer.  The world will thank you for it later.-kwan Read the rest of this entry »

11/8 Mix It Up East Bay

Posted by novoscene on November 7, 2007


Hey all you hot young East Bay politicos, looking for something to do Thursday night? How about joining some like minded lefties for caipirinhas and campaign strategy at Mix it Up, the monthly happy hour social for East Bay activists, organizers and social justice leaders.

This month’s event features short presentations by reps from the three leading Democratic Presidential candidates-Clinton, Obama and Edwards , preceded and proceeded, with lots of imbibing. (Maybe it’s just me, but politicos and activists are some of the hardest partiers I know. Guess I can’t blame them…)

Come get sauced for the cause. -kwan
