Ready to get out and have some fun this spring season? One of Winston Salem’s well-loved taverns, Second and Green, is excited to meet the warmer weather with the return of their “Thirsty Thursday”. As the closest tavern to the Winston Salem Dash ballpark, it serves as a convenient place to hang before the games or even to catch a drink afterward.
Second and Green will be playing live music during each Thirsty Thursday, so if you like the ambiance of a lively game night but want to have some conversation with friends during (or after) the game, it’s only a brief walk to the tavern. Guests can expect $1 select drafts, as well as the tavern’s famous “Greenway Shot”. And if you’re looking for something to munch on with the drinks, they’ll be providing free popcorn.
If you haven’t been to Second and Green before, and especially if you haven’t been to the BB&T Dash ballpark, you should definitely stop by this season for a drink and a good time watching one of our oldest pastimes. Don’t forget to put April 16 on your calendar – it’s the first game of the season at the Dash, starting at 7pm!
About Second and Green:
Purchased in 2013, Second and Green has always focused on simply providing a great drink experience from a convenient downtown location. Yes! Weekly voted them #1 in neighborhood bars in 2014, something they hope to achieve again in 2015. The leadership at the pub are all about the community, and the pub participates in a variety of charity events each year to give back to the city that put it on the map.
Second and Green is an active sponsor for the Big Brother Big Sisters Inc. of Winston Salem, which has mentored local children for over 100 years. As the nation’s largest volunteer mentoring network, it has strived to create relationships with lasting effects on the young people that are a part of it. 83% of former mentees say that their Big Brother or Big Sister instilled values in them that have guided them throughout their lives. It’s important to have good role models early on, particularly for children who may not have immediate family members to turn to. These sorts of values shape the leadership of tomorrow, which is a win for everyone.
Second and Green will also be participating in this year’s Color Run, which has been called the “happiest 5k on the planet.” Proceeds will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters to further their mentoring efforts. Combinations like this are a way for the community at large to get involved. Not everyone can or wants to be a mentor, but it’s a great time of year to get in shape and try out a 5k, and doing so can still benefit the youth through fundraising.
