Locations and Parking
Most events will take place in Emory’s Robert W. Woodruff Library. Meet for breakfast and registration in the Jones Room, on the third floor.
Your best bet for parking is the Fishburne parking deck. During BootCamp on Friday, parking at Fishburne costs $2.00 an hour. On Saturday and Sunday, however, parking is free on the upper levels. The lower level–visitor parking–will still charge you.
This map shows you where most THATCamp events will take place and shows the best route from the Emory Inn and Conference Center.

Emory has a mobile app for iOS devices and Blackberry, which offers detailed, interactive maps and other features.
On Friday night, we’ll be congregating at Manuel’s Tavern in the Atlanta’s Poncey-Highlands neighborhood, only a short drive from Emory. Come for a bite and a drink, whether you’re just arriving prior to the Camp or if you’ve been programming all day at BootCamp. The address is 602 N Highland Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30307-1433. We’ll start arriving around 6pm. It’s a “seat yourself” kind of place, so look for us in the big room to the left when you come in the front door.
By Saturday night, we’ll have fed our brains but need something for our stomachs. Accordingly, we’ll head to Taqueria del Sol in Decatur Square, again a short drive. This is a casual place, and we’re not going to call ahead and tell them 100 hungry THATCampers are on their way. Instead, we’ll just invite people to come in groups. It’s a casual dining place, so stand in line, make conversation, and enjoy some killer tacos. We’re told they sell margaritas and a range of tequilas as well. The address is 359 West Ponce De Leon Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030-2442. If for some reason you don’t want tacos, there are lots of other amazing options only a short walk away from Taqueria del Sol.
We have reserved a limited number of rooms at a conference rate of $76.00 plus tax/night for single/double occupancy at the Emory Inn (not the Conference Center; scroll down to read about the Inn).
Additionally, we have secured a courtesy room rate of $139.00 plus tax/night for single/double occupancy at the Emory Conference Center.
You can make reservations at either hotel by calling (800) 933-6679 and mentioning that you are with “THATCamp.” Be sure to specify which property you want to reserve a room at.
Both properties are at 1615 Clifton Road, Atlanta, GA 30329.
We fully encourage Campers to connect with each other via this space or Twitter to find potential roommates to save on costs!
