It’s a Spring Two-fer Good Causes on March 30th!

March Madness may be in full swing (it’s going to spill over into April, as a matter of fact), but there are no games on March 30th, so even die-hard basketball fans will be able to attend the events at the Idaho Pour Authority at 203 Cedar and Baxter’s at 109 Cedar that day. The main dilemma will be whether to drink beer before dinner, or have dinner before beer.

Grand Teton Brewing Company will be the guest brewery when  Idaho Pour Authority hosts the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness for their annual IPA fundraiser. Grand Teton Brewing, from the small southeastern Idaho town of Victor, features some  great beers, including the Bitch Creek ESB and the Sweetgrass APA. Starting at 4:00, join the Friends at the IPA for a spring celebration featuring Grand Teton brews, swag giveaways, raffle prizes and live music.

Just down Cedar, Baxter’s will host the Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society. Part of the proceeds from each meal served all day will benefit the Society, beginning with lunch. The Society will also be raffling off a sailing day on Lake Pend Oreille.

How convenient is it that FSPW and Kinnikinnick plan their events for the same day and only a block apart? Come to the party on Cedar on March 30!
