Chattanoogans Celebrate Being Green From A Higher Place At green|spaces’ Rooftop Hop

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Chattanoogans will have a chance to gain a new perspective on the city and celebrate the accomplishments that have made us a leader in sustainability at green|spaces’ second annual Rooftop Hop on Saturday, Oct. 19. 

Attendees will “hop” from five satellite rooftop parties including EPB, Tallan Building, Citi Park Garage, Walnut Commons Apartments and a Northshore location learning about how each of these buildings and hosts 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 transport guests to enjoy all of the views.

The event continues onto the top of the CARTA parking garage above the newly constructed High Point Climbing Center. 6 restaurants including Taco Mamacita, Urban Stack, Fork & Pie, Community Pie, 212 Market and Milk & Honey will showcase locally crafted foods to accompany Chattanooga Whiskey and other signature drinks created by Easy Bistro. The WTM Blues Band will open for the highly anticipated T-Bird & 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.

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 423 648-0963 or dawn@greenspaceschattanooga.com.
