In honor of Earth Day, coming up right around the corner (I just love April), the Phillips Collection Food Arts is hosting “Green Hours at the Phillips” now through April 22nd. Every Thursday, the museum café will offer organic wines and local beers, with one dollar from each drink going towards Earth Day Network.

Furthermore, on Earth Day the Phillips Collection will be hosting a panel discussion about local food and the landscape, in partnership with FreshFarm.  The panel will be featuring Maryland winemaker Robert Lyons, chef Nora Pouillon of Restaurant Nora, and PA farmer Mark Toigo of Toigo Orchards.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st St.
