Firefly cocktails to take wing on March 24
Fearing’s Restaurant will join with diners from Dallas and beyond to celebrate international Earth Hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 24.
Fearing’s will honor the March 24 occasion by lowering the lights in its Rattlesnake Bar and Live Oak Patio, presenting sustainable bar food, and sharing a complimentary Firefly cocktail with each guest throughout the 60-minute Earth Hour observance. Created with Absolut® Elyx Vodka, Fearing’s dazzling Firefly cocktail features illuminated ice cubes which closely resemble fireflies in flight.
When Earth Hour is over, the Firefly cocktails will remain available for purchase for a limited time, with proceeds from these Fearing’s sales to be donated to Water for People. Water For People and Absolut Elyx are on a five-year joint mission to bring access to safe water to more than 100,000 people worldwide – moving to transform the spirits industry by integrating philanthropy into its business model.
At the same 2121 McKinney Avenue location, and during the same 60-minute Earth Hour period on March 24, The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas will invite hotel guests and visitors to share in its own Earth Hour commemoration. Dimming of the lights in the Lobby area will be complemented by the presentation of an exclusive sustainable bites offering in the Lobby dining lounge. The hotel’s Earth Hour observance is part of The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints, a global social and environmental responsibility program which strives to make a difference through activities devoted to child well-being, hunger and poverty relief, and environmental responsibility.
Founded by the World Wildlife Fund in 2007, Earth Hour is a global phenomenon during which millions of people extinguish their non-essential lights for one hour in support of a cleaner, safer, less energy-intensive future. From its modest 2007 beginnings as a lights-off observance in Sydney, Australia, the Earth Hour message has swept the planet. This year, Earth Hour aims to reach one billion people in 1,000 cities across the globe.
