As we celebrate our seven-year anniversary this December at CWPR, we’re feeling a bit nostalgic. It’s hard to believe another year is about to pass us by, and what a year it has been. From the 20th anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares to the inaugural CounterPoint Music and Arts Festival, 2012 was packed full of incredible moments, unforgettable events, and a ridiculous amount of fun for our firm. And, we couldn’t do it without you. So, in conjunction with our anniversary, we are excited to introduce The Studio 5, our new monthly newsletter that will be filled with happenings, opportunities, invites, giveaways, news, and a behind-the-scenes glimpse of who we are. If you would like to hear from us more than once a month, stay connected with us on Twitter, Facebook and through our blog the Nest. And if you stumbled across this post via our website and would like to receive The Studio 5, be sure to sign up on our events page. Thank you for your support and Happy (almost) New Year!
In this edition of The Studio 5…
The pressure is on. If you haven’t experienced Hudson North, a farm-to-tavern pop-up located in Atlantic Station, time is running out. Open for lunch and dinner daily, this chef-driven concept with a curated craft beer and cocktail selection will close it’s doors forever at the end of the month.
Chef Shane McIntosh of Ocean Catering quickly cooked his way into our hearts. This powerhouse chef is currently competing in Modern Luxury and Verizon’s “4G For Hunger” campaign to win $4000 for his charity of choice. Vote for Chef Shane and help us win much-needed funds for The Chef & Child Foundation.
It’s the end of the World as we know it, so why not feel fine. Bone Lick BBQ is going out in style, with a free beer toast for ‘the end” Countdown, a free late night breakfast buffet for the surviors, live Dj’s, and Go Go Dancers. It’s an End of the World Party with every bit of class that the Mayans predicted would be the very cause for our demise.
The newest venture from the owners of Tongue and Groove, we cannot get enough of The Joint Barroom, a newly opened “turbo-pub” located next door to the iconic nightclub in Buckhead’s Lindbergh City Center. The stylishly informal atmosphere combined with creative cocktails (on tap), traditional snacks and great music make it one of our new favorite hangouts for happy hour get-togethers. Perk: It’s non-smoking.

In classic CWPR form our own anniversary has arrived with us barely taking notice. Through the throngs of events that we’ve been behind… CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival, Jeffrey Fashion Cares, Winter Beer Carnival, BaconFest, Camp Bisco, Atlanta Arts Festival, Club Monaco Re-Opening, CWPR Restaurant Week… and our ‘stronger than ever’ client partner roster, we somehow got caught up in the moment.
Tonight we will celebrate 7 Years of CWPR (in conjunction with Mr. Matt “DBA” Coggin’s birthday) and would love to have you come on out. There will be special 7 dollar combos, incredible drink specials and giveaways, along with the amazing Ruby Velle Trio to keep the night moving. After 340 solid days of dedicating our lives to the greater good in 2012, it is time to blow off some steam and we want you to be a part of it. The invite below has the full details.
And that’s our story. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for all our clients, past and current team members, family and anyone that has ever come out to support our events.
In the words of the Pixies… “La la love you don’t mean maybe.”

An Atlanta institution, Woody’s CheeseSteaks located in the heart of Midtown, is giving back to our city’s unrecognized heroes during its inaugural Thanksgiving fundraiser, 24 Hours of Giving. Beginning at midnight on Thanksgiving morning, November 22, 2012, and carrying on until 11:59 p.m. Thanksgiving night, all first responders from the Atlanta Police Department, Atlanta Fire Department, EMT/EMS, and HERO, are invited to enjoy a special holiday menu for free, which of course includes Woody’s Famous CheeseSteaks. Additionally, Woody’s will be open to the public and will be donating all proceeds from the 24 Hours of Giving to the Atlanta Fire and the Atlanta Police Foundations.
“While we always offer first responders 50% off their checks as a way of saying thanks, I’ve always wanted to do something a little bigger for the men and women I consider to be my heroes. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to honor them and say thank you with measurable action,” says Woody’s CheeseSteak owner, Steven Renner.
“We often take for granted that while we are enjoying time with friends and family on Thanksgiving, watching football and plotting our attack for Black Friday, these men and women are out keeping us safe and are ready to jump in and save the day if we have to dial 911. I have nothing but respect for our first responders who risk it all to make today a better, safer place than it was yesterday. With 24 Hours of Giving, it’s just our small way to give back, support our community, and and let our first responders know we truly mean it when we say, ‘thank you’,” he adds.
Can’t make it on Thanksgiving, but still want to be involved? Woody’s is accepting cash donations for the Atlanta Police and Atlanta Fire Foundations during regular business hours and are also holding a food drive for the Atlanta Community Food Bank through the end of the year.
Woody’s CheeseSteaks is located at 981 Monroe Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30308. For more information call (404) 876-1939 or visit Woody’s on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WoodysCheesesteaks. Stay connected on Twitter at www.twitter.com/WoodysATL.
