Creative Mornings / Ryan Hidinger
Friday, June 28, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM (EDT)
Registration opens June 24th & 25th at 9am (not the normal 11am).
Ryan & Jen Hidinger founded Staplehouse, an underground supper club, in 2009 and quickly made a name for themselves in the food community of Atlanta. Just as their dreams of opening a restaurant were beginning to appear possible, everything changed: in December of 2012, Ryan, 35, was diagnosed with stage IV gallbladder cancer. Overnight, the years of positive momentum came to a screeching halt, and Staplehouse was put on permanent hold. Ryan will tell the story of how the Atlanta community rallied behind them to resurrect Staplehouse to not only become a restaurant, but to be the first-ever modern, farm-to-table restaurant powered by award-winning chefs that will never make a single cent.

THIS MONTH'S GLOBAL THEME: "Food"
High Museum of Art
*PARKING IS IN THE WOODRUFF ARTS PARKING GARAGE for $5 per car
Parking rates have been discounted by 50% for our group but will still cost $5 per car :( There will be a parking attendant as you enter the garage. Tell them you are here for the Creative Morning Event. Credit cards are accepted, however with a single attendant on-duty, cash transactions tend to be much quicker and prevent the entry line from backing up. Any late arrivers should simply pull a ticket from the machine. This ticket can be used at the cashier booth to exit the garage and the $5 rate will still be honored.
Please carpool if possible! There is also limited metered parking on 14th, 15th, & Peachtree St.
Once on sight at the High, follow Creative Mornings signs to the Hill Auditorium.
