Join us Nov. 1 (6 p.m.) for Stone Brew First Thursday featuring live music by Bill Coffey and His Cash Money Cousins, free Stone Brewing Co. beer and a special Usful Glassworks glassware sale. This free, all-ages event is presented by Boise Weekly, Stone Brewing Co., Usful Glassworks and The Record Exchange.
Usful Glassworks (formerly Sustainable Futures) has created a unique line of glassware made from recycled hand-painted Stone bottles. The glassware will be available for purchase at the event — and we’re serving bottles of Stone that you can recycle right on the spot! We’ll also throw in a 30% off Record Exchange coupon with each Usful Glassworks purchase and give away some raffle prizes following the music!
Proceeds from the glassware sales will benefit Usful Glassworks.
ABOUT USFUL GLASSWORKS
Usful Glassworks (formerly Sustainable Futures) is a local non-profit here in Boise that makes glassware out of recycled wine, beer and liquor bottles. But, that does not even begin to tell the story about what we really do. What we really do is help put people back to work. This beautiful glassware is made by our job program participants — women and men coming out of the department of corrections, refugees, youth at risk, low-income seniors and our homeless. The production of this glassware is part of a work readiness program that is designed to get people back to work. The purchase of this glassware helps to fund the work of Usful Glassworks.
