State and Allen Lounge does more than serve up some Short Orders-approved brisket chili, pizza and martinis. The Uptown eatery's staff goes out of its way to protect the planet, too, as they'll gladly let you know.
At least others will. The non-profit Drinking With Benefits (we kinda like the sound of that but figure we'd be let down if we learned its real meaning) recognizes State & Allen for "setting the bar," green-wise. Free hors d'oeuvres and drinks ( from Veev and local organic brewer Franconia).
Setting The Bar is from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. tonight, and will be family and dog (and possibly code violation) friendly.
