The Drug Policy Alliance is throwing a cocktail bash and networking opportunity for students, young professionals and other movers-and-shakers on May 22, 2008 at an exclusive gallery space in SoHo. The theme is inspired by the one-year anniversary of the re-legalization of absinthe in the U.S. The organizers hope the event will encourage participants to think about the variable relationship between drugs, society, the law, and art. Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder takes place Thursday, May 22 from six to eight pm.
DJ, light appetizers and open bar. Twenty-one and over only; proper ID required 151 Wooster Street between Houston & Prince B, D, F, V to Broadway/Lafayette or R, W to Prince. Get more info and RSVP here. This will be an opportunity to meet the people working to end the drug war. Come together to promote new drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights. You'll also get to try absinthe and see "Flash, Cash and Trash," an exhibition by contemporary young artists on the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll of the 1990s.
