Thursday, October 10, 2013

Chattanoogans will have a chance to gain a new perspective on the city and celebrate the accomplishments in sustainability at green|spaces’ 2nd Annual Rooftop Hop on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Attendees will “hop” from five satellite rooftop parties at EPB Building, Tallan Building, CitiPark Garage, Walnut Commons Apartments and 201 Cherokee Blvd., learning about how each of these buildings promote sustainable living, working and building in Chattanooga while enjoying local foods, beverages and entertainment.  

The one and only Traveling Rooftop Party (the Double Decker Bus) along with Bike Chattanooga will allow the guests to enjoy all of the views.  The event continues to the main event at the top of the CARTA parking garage above the newly constructed High Point Climbing Center (215 Broad St.). 

Seven restaurants including Lee Towery Catering, Taco Mamacita, Urban Stack, Fork and Pie, Community Pie, 212 Market and Milk and Honey will showcase locally crafted foods to accompany Chattanooga Whiskey and Corsair Gin, wine and beer. The WTM Blues Band will open for the T-Bird and the Breaks from Austin, Tx. 

To help attendees return to back to ground level, Rhythm & Brews will host the official after party featuring Chattanooga’s SharkWeek and Power Players. 

VIP tickets will include the five satellite parties, the main event and admission to the official after party.  The VIP tickets are $150, or $100 for green|spaces members.

General admission tickets are for the main event and $5 admission to the official after party.  General admission tickets are $55, or $25 for green|spaces members.

All proceeds benefit green|spaces who promotes sustainable living, working and building in the Chattanooga Area. For information on tickets or sponsorship, visit www.therooftophop.com or contact Dawn Hjelseth at 648-0963 or dawn@greenspaceschattanooga.com.
