Once you've polished off the last delicious drop of ROOT, it's hard to say goodbye to that bottle — it's just so damn pretty. Art in the Age — purveyors of the aforementioned bespoke liqueur and its gingerbready sister, SNAP — has concocted a clever means to keep those ROOT remnants around without turning your living room into a bottle-lined frat house. Dave Seator and Louis Cook encourage Earth-friendly artistry with their Sustainable Terrariums workshop, in which they'll teach reduce/reuse/recyclers how to make tiny ecosystems inside those aesthetically pleasing empties.
Thu., May 26, 6 p.m., free (RSVP to email@example.com), Art in the Age, 116 N. Third St., 215-922-2600, artintheage.com, daveseator.com.
