Tricky Weather Can’t Stop the Treats at 2017 Open Streets Emory Village

Open Streets Emory Village celebrated its fifth year on October 29, creating a gathering spot for neighborhood families looking to explore different types of movement. Despite a freakishly warm autumn, temperatures barely made it out of the 30s that Sunday afternoon. But the enthusiasm was hot!

The afternoon kicked off at 2 with the second annual Halloween Parade, led by DeKalb Commissioner Jeff Rader as Grand Marshall. Members of the Druid Hills High School Band provided an energetic soundtrack as a procession of little princesses, Pooh Bears, warriors, piglets, mermaids, and Batmen joined in the fun before diving into “trunk or treating” in the Slice & Pint parking lot. Glenn Memorial Church members appeared for the first time at Open Streets, elaborately decking out their car trunks so each child could experience a Halloween wonderland.


Circus performers and acrobats from OPA Imperial Circus delighted the crowds with their tricks, roving through the crowd to stay warm. A few smart businesses offered hot cider and toddies outdoors.

Other highlights of the day included:

  • The Dog Costume Contest, judged by Commissioner Rader and Senator Elena Parent
  • Touch a Truck with DeKalb County’s SWAT team, police motorcycle and firetruck and
  • An amazing dance performance by the Silver Classic Crew.

Throughout the day, the Plaza was alive with music from The Gathering Band, the Journeyman’s Band, the Glenn Youth Choir, and Rocket 88.

Much appreciation goes to our volunteers: Becky Evans, Sarah Banick, Mark and Marlene Goldman, Melissa Fishbein, Donna Shapiro, Judy Wood, Mary Eccard, Dave Moore, Nathan Hartman, Abby Shefer, Don Walter, Russ Yates, Jean Welsh, Van Biesel, Clarke Weeks, and Jay Johnson. Neighbor and professional photographer Lisa Hill captured the afternoon through her photos

Many thanks to everyone who provided activities as well as our sponsors who made it all possible.  Please support our business sponsors.

  1. Gambling has long been a tabooed subject in many societies; in fact,
    a lot of people consider it to be a form of gambling. However, a
    lot of individuals still enjoy the excitement and thrill that come together with gambling; therefore,
    the reason there are casinos all around the world. Gambling has even made its way into popular culture, with reality shows like”The Weakest Link” where people play slots.

    Quarantee (black and red ) is probably the most well known type of casino game,
    and probably the one with the maximum level of interest among gamblers.
    It is often compared to a cross between slots and poker, because it requires the
    participant to place bets based on the cards that come out of the
    quarante deck. Even though the specific mechanics of how these bets are made is largely unknown, it is generally thought that a standard deck
    of 52 cards is used in every game. As well as the cards that come out of the
    quarante deck, the player should also opt for a hand of cards which will make up the winning combination. The most common types
    of bets are the win, place, show, and complete house.

    There are basically two kinds of bets in quarantine. The players can either bet
    on the total quantity of the pot (or wager); or they
    could bet on the total amount of cards that come out of
    the quarante deck. If no cards come out through a quarante match, then the player must call, raise, or fold.
    There are generally three different betting bets in each sport:
    win, cover, and half-pay.

    Traditionally, the traditional Italian card game, tarantella, was played at the St
    Regis Hotel. This particular version of the game involved a tableau de quarante at which all of
    the players would sit at specific places on the warranty row.

    In this sort of game, there were red and black rooms, together
    with the winning participant being the player who was able to complete their last five cards until the other players finished theirs.

    Today, there are literally hundreds of variations of the standard French
    card game, et noir. In fact, the most common variation is simply a
    variation on the black and red rooms. In most versions, there are four suites;
    a black suite, a red suite, plus a blue suite. The players can win by laying down a total of twenty-one free cards, including one card from each of
    the four suites. Once all players have lost their cards,
    the dealer randomly selects one card from each of the four suites and places it in the center of the quarante table.

    These days, the term”quarante” means”of or about quarantining.” Traditionally, the game was known as”trente et noir” which meant playing cards
    with titles. It has also been known as”trente” and”ne monetaire” in the French speaking world.
    Today, it refers only to card games that contain playing cards with titles.

    Traditionally, the match was played between two people seated across a small tablenonetheless, in America it’s usually played at a bar or lounge.
    Each person dealt three cards face down, one at a time to one another.

    If anybody got rid of one of those three cards, then they
    had to switch places with the person who they had dealt the first card
    to. The man who dealt the last card, in turn, then had to
    eliminate the hand by passing another card to the person they handed
    it to.

    The”quaint” version of the game is available for those
    who want to play something a little more simple.
    Although there are variations on how best to play the game, the basic rules remain the same.
    The object is still the same, to form the greatest possible hand without having any cards left to
    spare. This may be accomplished with ease, especially if you’ve already mastered
    the fundamentals of playing the game of blackjack, since the basic rules of this card game are extremely easy to learn and grasp.
    The basic notion of the game of”monte carlo” remains the same,
    since it is a simple game which may be played by almost anyone.
