Drink with a purpose this week – and we’re not talking about just getting a buzz. June 1-7 is Negroni Week, brought to you by Imbibe Magazine. Nationwide, bars are donating a portion of the proceeds from each Negroni cocktail purchased, with funds going to charities of their choice.

The Modern Hotel and Bar’s pick is Interfaith Sanctuary, an organization we consider vital to Boise. From their website: “Interfaith Sanctuary Housing Services is a collaboration of people of faith and people of conscience who have joined together to shelter and serve individuals experiencing homelessness. Sanctuary provides overnight shelter for men, women, and children and provides supportive services that promote greater self-sufficiency, improved well-being, and permanent housing acquisition.”

Now, that’s a cause we can all raise a glass to!

So come, on down, and let’s do good while we drink this week. To quote the wise singer –song-writer John Prine, “Hey, it ain’t such a long drop, don’t stammer don’t stutter, from the diamonds in the sidewalk to the dirt in the gutter.”

Cheers to living and taking care of each other.
