About the event:
Are you looking for an opportunity to talk climate in an inclusive community? No professional climate experience is necessary! You are warmly invited by hosts Michelle Li (Women and Climate and Clever Carbon founder) and Tri Vo (CarbonBetter & Fierce Whiskers Distillery founder) for an evening of casual dinner, drinks, and conversation at the Fierce Whiskers Distillery Tasting Room right before SXSW begins.
Women and Climate and CarbonBetter have teamed up for this gathering to support our shared goal to provide an inclusive space for sustainability-related conversations among attendees from all backgrounds.
Join us as we discuss ideas, share best practices, and explore ways to build sustainability into business operations and make an impact locally. Every conversation helps us make progress.
Space is limited! Grab your spot by RSVPing today, and help us keep waste as low as possible by pre-ordering your preferred vegan meal. Meals are $45 per person and will be served family-style to reduce waste.
Dinner includes two skewers of your choice of plant-based protein (options below), with sides of Garlic Ginger Fat Rice and Fried Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Chili Sauce & Fried Shallots.
If you’d like to pre-order your meal, please select the “RSVP (meal pre-order)” ticket, and select one of the following options at checkout:
Seasonal Mushroom Skewer with Thai Basil Chimichurri
Tofu Skewer with Sweet Sesame Marinade
Vegan Fish Skewer with Vegan Chili Nam Jim
For beverages, the Fierce Whiskers Tasting Room offers an array of craft cocktails, in-house distilled rum, agave spirit, and gin, as well as aged whiskey products.
Food will also be available to purchase on-site the night of the event, but we recommend pre-ordering to limit waste and ensure your preferred dinner option is available.
It’s recommended that you bring your own reusable nametag to the event. Email email@example.com if you have any questions.
