UPCOMING 2017 EMORY POINT EVENTS
You better watch out… because #EPStylishSanta is coming back to town!
That’s right. The man who put the ooh la la in everyone’s ho ho ho during the holidays at Emory Point last year is returning this year. And we’ll have more goodies for you, too, so mark your calendars for the dates below!
Merry Mondays — November 27th, December 4th & December 11th, 11 AM-8 PM
$20 Gift Card — Spend $100+ at Emory Point (excluding restaurants) on the same day and receive a $20 gift card to one of our merchants. (Make sure you keep your receipts!)
Free Gift Wrapping — Elves (who might be in people clothes) will be here to do free wrapping of the gifts you purchased at Emory Point stores.
Free Yoga Classes — For newbie and experienced yogis and yoginis who haven’t taken a class at Empower Yoga at Emory Point, their gift to you is a free class. Actually, two per person, at 12 noon and/or 5:15 PM.
Stylish Santa — December 11th, from 11 AM – 1 PM, will be Stylish Santa’s last visit to Emory Point this year. For every pic with him that is uploaded to social media with the hashtag #epstylishsanta, Emory Point will donate $1 to the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge. (You can also see him on December 9th & 10th; see details below.)
Saturday, December 9th, 7-8 PM
Mixology class — The folks who attended the class on November 18th had a great (and delicious!) time, so if you missed it, you have another chance to learn mad cocktail-making skills from top Atlanta mixologist Tiffanie Barriere, aka The Drinking Coach. The class will be held in the Emory Point Residential Lounge. Tickets cost $10 each + 2 cans of food. 100% of the monetary proceeds will be donated to Hope Lodge and all canned food collected will be donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
Space is limited, so get your tickets now by visiting our Eventbrite page.
By the way, Stylish Santa will be at the class to spread even more holiday cheer and take selfies with you! Remember to upload your pics with him to social media with the hashtag #epstylishsanta and help us raise more dollars for Hope Lodge.
Sunday, December 10th, 11 AM-1 PM
Stylish Santa — This is his next-to-last visit with us this year. Join him on the Emory Point Lawn for selfies, then tag your social media pics with Stylish Santa with the hashtag #epstylishsanta and we’ll donate $1 for each one to Hope Lodge.
PREVIOUS 2017 EMORY POINT EVENTS
On November 15th, Emory Point hosted America Recycles Day 2017 in partnership with Emory University’s Sustainability Initiatives to support America Recycles Day. All of the items that people could bring to be recycled are listed this page.
We don’t have the numbers yet for the 2017 event, but last year attendees from up and down the Clifton Corridor brought a collective…
- 8000 pounds of electronic recyclables
- 200 pairs of shoes for charitable donation
- 2 truckloads of personal documents for safe and secure shredding
- 8 truckloads of other households items for recycling
And America Recycles Day at Emory Point 2016 won the HHS Green Champion Award in the Environmental Stewardship by a Group category!
Check out the pictures from last year!
Empower Yoga held its second annual series of Yoga in the Park on the last three Saturday mornings in September on the lawn at Emory Point. These proved to be so popular that they added all four Saturdays in October, too!
The bonus: Attendees who brought a buddy to all three Saturdays in September were entered in a drawing to win an annual Empower Yoga membership, valued at $1,199!
Every (free) ticket for the 2017 Emory Point Fall Festival, held on October 28th, was gone in a flash. Typically an outdoor affair, this year’s festival was held indoors in the space beside Art of Wax due to rain.
Folks came by the spooktacular event for tasty food and drinks from Boruboru Sushi (which was concurrently celebrating its 1-year anniversary at Emory Point), music from Lilac Wine, and great giveaways from Emory Point retailers and restaurants. They also painted pumpkins from Earth Fare, got their faces painted by Emily J. Aveda artists, and won fabulous prizes!
Here are some pics from the event.
Attendees learned to take their meals from boring and bland to delicious and nutritious with five simple sauces they learned to make in the new cooking class co-hosted by The Clean Plate Club Atl, Strippaggio, and Emory Point on October 5th.
The sauces — each featuring a Strippagio Olive Oil or Balsamic Vinegar and all being gluten-free — uses simple, fresh ingredients that are easy to find. When the sauces are paired with other ingredients, such as pasta, fish, chicken or vegetables, meals pop!
- Basic basil pesto sauce
- Balsamic mustard sauce
- Pistachio Salsa Verde
- Herbed Lime Dressing
- Pea Puree
Mary Kay Andrews visited Emory Point as part of her book tour for The Beach House Cookbook, her latest publishing sensation.
The free event, jointly hosted by Strippaggio Artisan Oils and Marlow’s Tavern, happened on September 1st, and included a book signing and book giveaway, as well as a lucky attendee winning their very own Big Green Egg!
A total eclipse of the sun is a rare phenomenon, and scores of people popped by Emory Point for our Eclipse Day festivities on August 21st. Some watched the eclipse with protective glasses while DIYers made pinhole cameras. And everyone enjoyed the free MoonPies and live music by Lilac Wine, and appreciated the coupons that Empower Yoga Emory Point handed out in Emory Point mugs.
The Emory Point Grillin’ & Chillin’ events held in 2016 were such a success that we hosted another set on May 11th, June 8th, June 29th, and July 13th!
Grillin’ & Chillin’ — Emory Point’s signature foodie fundraising series — returned with top Atlanta-area chefs and mixologists (most of whom partnered with Emory Point last year) giving their time to serve up more fabulous food and delicious drinks to raise funds for local nonprofits. Popular jazz bands added harmony and melody to the feasting fun.
Attendees ate well and drank well during Grillin’ & Chillin’, held in the Park at Emory Point. They did good works at the same time, too, because 100% of their ticket purchases were donated to local nonprofits supported by the chefs. And several attendees won their very own MiniMax Big Green Egg!
