Sometimes even the most intrepid of adventuring parties needs to get a little extra help from friendly townsfolk, and completing a quest is always best when done with friends! That’s why we want to invite you – the Emerald Tavern community – to officially join us in our final push towards the expansion opening. As a member of the Builder’s Guild you’ll receive exclusive swag, opportunities during the year available only to guild members and the chance to see the inner-workings of the Tavern at our “Prerelease Party” held the week before our soft-launch!
To join the Builder’s Guild you can either purchase entry directly OR purchase one of our exclusive “Premium Experiences” where you’ll help craft the very future of the Tavern!
Opening Day Announced!
We’re excited to announce that (barring unforeseen construction delays, code reviews, or interdimensional time-wimey stability issues) we’ll be opening the doors to the Brand New Emerald Tavern on Friday, August 23rd!
Members of our Builder’s Guild will get a sneak peek at the new space at our “Prerelease Party” Thursday, August 22nd.
Note: We recognize that due to the challenges in dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s with the City of Austin, it’s likely that this opening date might have to be delayed by several weeks. If that is the case, we’ll be sure to keep our adoring public well informed!
