Please save the date for a special holiday party benefiting the People's Harm Reduction Alliance, an important organization that runs Seattle's only private needle exchange in the U-District. Harm Reduction is a philosophy of public health aimed at meeting people where they're at to reduce the potential dangers from risky behaviors. Among other things, PHRA aims to reduce the spread of blood-borne illnesses, such as HIV and Hep-C, and overdoses, while at the same time offering information on ways to seek assistance with food, housing and treatment. For more information, visit http://www. peoplesharmreductionalliance. org/.
Open bar: this is a very limited open bar staffed with bartenders. Please bring your own favorite beverage for yourself or to share with others. All liquor brought must be served by the bartenders so no one gets too intoxicated (for the Tiger Lounge's protection).
The bartenders will mix up all your favorites, so tip them well!
