#CUC17 Social Event Details Released


To all of our Cascade User Conference registrants, we hope you are just as excited as we are for this year’s event! We are eager to share what we’ve been up to, where we’re headed, and hear about all the cool things you accomplished in Cascade CMS over the past year.

In addition to great learning and networking experiences, we’ve set aside time to have a lot of fun at this year’s conference. We’re hosting two social events that will help you make new friends in the Cascade CMS network.

Tuesday Night Welcome Event

Date: Tuesday, October 24

Venue: Georgia Beer Garden

Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Address: 420 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta

Join us on Tuesday evening for cocktails and conversation at Georgia Beer Garden in the Sweet Auburn neighborhood of Atlanta, just minutes from downtown. This recently-opened pub features draft and bottled beers from the state of Georgia, as well as regional spirits.

We’re excited to show you a true taste of Atlanta at this event. Georgia Beer Garden is located in a renovated historic building with its classic architecture preserved. There’s also a spacious backyard with picnic tables and outdoor games, if the weather is nice. Our event will take place in a private space located upstairs.

Stop by for a casual evening of local brews and heavy hors d'oeuvres with your colleagues and the Hannon Hill team.

And, if you’re really brave, join us for the after party at Joystick Gamebar across the street from the beer garden. It’s the only spot in Atlanta dedicated to classic arcade games, friends, and fun!

Wednesday Night Cassie Awards Reception

Date: Wednesday, October 25

Venue: Georgia Aquarium

General Aquarium Admission: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Cassie Awards Reception: 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Address: 225 Baker St NW, Atlanta

Take a major brain break from the first full day of conference sessions by joining us for an inspiring, educational, and entertaining experience at the Georgia Aquarium. We promise a night of fun and networking, all while gaining a new appreciation for the world’s aquatic biodiversity.

We are so thrilled to let you know that general admission is included with this event. You’ll have access to the seven distinct galleries and more than 100 exhibits at the aquarium.

The Georgia Aquarium is an underwater escape in the heart of Atlanta. From tiny clownfish and Australian weedy sea dragons to giant Japanese spider crabs and whale sharks, you will relish the diverse floating worlds within the ten million gallons of fresh and marine water. And don’t miss the Ocean Voyager exhibit, one of the largest single aquatic habitats in the world.

Important Notes:

  • General admission to the aquarium begins at 6:00pm. You may enter the aquarium at this time and view the exhibits at your own pace.
  • The Cassie Awards Reception begins at 7:30pm. Please join us in the Atlantic Room for food, drinks, and our annual Cassie Awards presentation.
  • If we end early, you may re-enter the aquarium until it closes at 9:00pm.

This will be the biggest and best User Conference social event we’ve ever hosted!

Both the Georgia Beer Garden and the Georgia Aquarium are short Uber rides from anywhere in downtown, but we recommend trying out the newly-installed Atlanta Streetcar. We rode it ourselves and it is clean, quick, and affordable. It runs on a trolley line, but it is enclosed with air conditioning.

Important Notes:

  • A one-way trip is $1.00, a one-day pass is $3.00, and a seven-day pass is $11.00.
  • The Atlanta Streetcar runs from 6:00am - 11:00pm on the days of the conference.
  • Streetcars run approximately every 10 to 15 minutes, depending on ridership and traffic conditions.
  • You can track streetcars on the Atlanta Streetcar website to know exactly when to head outside.
  • There is a stop across the street from the Ellis hotel, one block and a half from Georgia Beer Garden, and another approximately three blocks from the Georgia Aquarium.

We also recommend riding the streetcar from your hotel to the Loudermilk Center and back.


It is our sincere hope that you share in our excitement for the social events planned for this year’s conference. We had a lot of fun researching and touring venues, and we selected what we think will give you a fun and authentic taste of Atlanta.

If you haven’t yet signed up for #CUC17, please visit the registration page to claim your spot now. Remember that early bird pricing expires on June 30.


As always, please feel free to email us at conference@hannonhill.com with any inquiries.

We can’t wait to see you in October!
