NETHERWORLD CLOSES OUT ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY WITH TWO HOLIDAY EVENTS

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 12/3/21

A Lights on Tour of NETHERWORLD Returns Dec. 11 – Behind-the-Scenes of America’s Favorite Haunted House + A Haunted Holiday Returns Dec. 18 Featuring an Encore Performance of RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN with a Yuletide Twist!

America’s top-rated haunt, NETHERWORLD Haunted House, is closing out its 25th anniversary season with two incredible special events this December. On Saturday, Dec. 11, A Lights on Tour of NETHERWORLD will take haunt fans behind-the-scenes of what goes into the making of the scariest and most legendary haunted house in the country. On Saturday, Dec. 18, NETHERWORLD will reopen for A Haunted Holiday, an encore performance of the to-die-for 25th season’s main attraction, RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN, but with a heavy peppermint twist.

First up on Saturday, Dec. 11, guests can experience NETHERWORLD as a VIP with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look during the Lights on Tour. Haunt fans will be taken through the RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN and RETURN TO PLANET X in 3D with house lights turned on and the haunt effects turned off to expose every demented detail that makes NETHERWORLD a top Halloween destination. Guests will also be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide who will explore the storylines and production details behind the sets. There will be opportunities to take pictures at select predetermined locations inside the haunts, and each person will receive a free souvenir printed photo to remember this extremely rare event. Each tour group has a maximum of six people allowed. If a group is larger than six, two separate time slots will need to be booked. Tours are offered from noon to 5:45 p.m. and are $100 per person. To check availability and purchase tickets, click here.

“To top off our 25th season in the scream making business, bringing back these two holiday events was an absolute must,” said Ben Armstrong, NETHERWORLD Haunted House Co-Creator. “This is a gift from us to our fans, true haunt enthusiasts who haven’t had the chance to go behind the scenes, but have always wanted to. Now is their chance to get the full experience up close and personal and to deeply explore what makes NETHERWORLD a must visit year after year!”

Then, on Saturday, Dec. 18, back by popular demand, NETHERWORLD will undergo a holiday transformation and reopen for one night only for A Haunted Holiday. Guests will experience a full production and encore performance of RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN, but this time with a yuletide-fueled takeover. Expect visits from seasonally inspired monsters like Krampus and Yeti, holiday themed scenes, and more. This event will be extremely limited capacity, will offer timed ticketing, and is a great way to experience the acclaimed haunted house without the larger crowds that you would encounter during the regular season in October. Upon exiting the attraction, guests will be able to enjoy NETHERWORLD’s holiday themed Midway entertainment area and gift shop chock full of great Christmas gifts for the lover of all things spooky. Open from 6:30-9:30 p.m., online general admission tickets are $25.95, and SpeedPass tickets are $39.95.

On the respective day for each event, Laser Adventure Battle Arena, the four Escape Room Games and the Monster Museum will be open. Tickets for both the Lights on Tour and A Haunted Holiday are on sale now. It is highly encouraged to purchase tickets online, in advance as both events have an extremely limited capacity and will sell out.

MILTON RESTAURANT WEEK 2021

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 11/7/21

 November 5th to November 13th

Milton-based agency, Rountree Group Integrated Communications, has announced its second annual Milton Restaurant Week (MRW), a week-long tasting event (Nov. 5 – 13) to showcase Milton restaurants through food, fellowship, and spirits. The culinary affair attracts food lovers from surrounding North Fulton communities, while giving its sponsors a chance to promote special menus and venues.

 The event initially began in 2020 as a way to support local restaurants during the pandemic. “The idea began in Fall 2019 and was launched in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic to help support our restaurant community,” said Don Rountree, president of Rountree Group and founder of Milton Restaurant Week. “We launched the MRW website and social handles to give local restaurants an opportunity to showcase offerings and communicate how/when they are serving our community,” Rountree said.

 Sponsoring this year’s Milton Restaurant Week, the City of Milton and Crabapple Market will be alongside a few other local businesses including:

 Milton Business Council

Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub

7 Acre BarNGrill

Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails

The Union Restaurant

Kathleen’s Catch

This year’s participating restaurants hope to impress guests by featuring several of their most popular lunch and dinner dishes, along with specialty crafted cocktails. Visitors will have the option to try new cuisine from four sponsoring restaurants at a discounted price as part of the week-long event. The selections will include cuisine ranging from pristine Southern dishes to classic Irish favorites.

The organizers hope this year’s event will be even better than the last. “Meals are a time to gather, to socialize and to engage with each other,” said Rountree. The communications agency has partnered with several local restaurants over the last decade to support its community and local businesses.

 Milton, GA has been consistently highly ranked due to its prestige living community and accompanying local businesses. The thriving culinary scene has been known to contribute to the appeal of the North Fulton neighborhood. MRW is one of a few events Rountree Group has organized to support the Milton community.

“Milton offers a variety of foods from southern favorites to craft cocktails. I for one enjoy date nights, family favorites and celebrating milestones right around the corner from our home or office. We love our local partners so supporting local restaurants just makes sense. Live, work, play… and EAT,” said Ben Huard of GO Agency, GNFCC Chairman Circle Member and Founding Member of Milton Business Council.

Those interested will be able to stay updated on participating restaurants and specific details @miltonrestaurantweek on Instagram and Facebook.
