Honeychild - An Indie Kids Festival

We had so much fun hosting our first festival for the littles - Honeychild - at Mueller Lake Park

It was a pretty windy and chilly, so we didn't get to deck out the park in the colorful decor,  but we put out as many confetti balloons as possible. 

Garbo's Lobster Roll Truck and Connor's Creamery were on hand once again serving up their delicious eats!

...and as promised, the DIY vibes flowed throughout the park!

Not only was our floral crown workshop a hit, but Slavonk + Hortus Terraria brought the mini terrarium fun, along side of Imagine That Art Space's science and painting crafts. 

Our crew of lovely local vendors, including Anne York, were also on hand dishing out their kid and family friendly goods. 

All in all, it was a hoot!  We loved seeing the kids dive into art and hang out with new friends, all while we stayed true to our mission of supporting small businesses and building community.  

The festival is will be back next year, and it will definitely be worth the wait! In the meantime, stay tuned because we will be launching our kids dance parties with the same vibe later this year!

Craft / Coffee Recap

We had a blast at the studio celebrating the upcoming holiday season! We sipped and dived deeper into the yummy and artisanal world of craft coffee courtesy of our neighbor Cuvée Coffee Bar.

For this two hour workshop, we sampled four types ranging from fruit to chocolate flavors and paired them each with gourmet pastries from our other favorite neighbor, Chicon. Bourbon chocolate chip cookies anyone?

While we sipped, we gave ourselves an A+ for effort as we decked out our ornaments in an array of acrylic paints and gold-leaf and DIY'd our very own handpainted gift wrap.

The holidays brings out the creativity in everyone, and it was a blast to see what the girls dreamed up!  We're already brainstorming next year's holiday workshop!

Whiskey 101 Recap

Well, well, well.  Who knew whiskey (whisky, whiskeys, whiskies) could be so much fun?  We always have a blast organizing cocktail workshops, but it was real treat participating as a newbie.

On July 30, She + Him Bartending showed up and showed out for our first workshop at the studio. The dynamic duo walked the whiskey curious through a history lesson on bourbon, scotch and rye, followed by a tasting of each.

Afterwards, we did our best bartender impressions and made a cocktail with each whiskey type using professional bar tools.

Let's just say the weekend was a success.  We had a great time meeting new people, and can't wait to do it all over again.  Stay tuned and thirsty, my friends!

Sip + Brunch Recap

In June, we hosted our first round of Sip + Brunch at Weather Up in East Austin.  It was a hot one, but the drinks most definitely kept us cool on the spacious patio.

The kind bartender and our host, Fidel, was not only talented but incredibly knowledgable. He walked us through three cocktail recipes - the daiquiri, the Manhattan and the margarita.

We all practiced our skills with professional and stylish bar tools. Fidel covered the proper way to shake, stir and pour and everything in between. 

Chef  Kristine Kittrell completed the afternoon with her culinary magic. Bacon bites, cheese plates, chicken and waffles... you name it.  It was quite the treat getting to sample their delectable brunch menu.

As an added bonus, we provided each guest with a swag bag chockfull of local and creative goodies, like custom cocktail recipe cards from Emma Gundlach, Austin Beerworks Pearl Snap, gold paper straws and metal drink stirrers!
