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!

Lovefest 002 - Swoon Valentine's Pop Up

We had the pleasure of hosting some very talented and creative folks at the new Archer Hotel at Domain Northside for a little Swoon collaboration. 

We were lucky enough to have DJ Cass&Ra back to keep the brunch crowd bumpin' both days. 

From floral bars by Urban Stems + Color Theory Collective to quality goods from Batch Austin, Heidi Miller Lowell and instaDesign Group, there was no shortage of unique gifts.

We were also fully stocked with stylish dude gear thanks to Penny Luck Shoes and Bonobos

Many thanks to Archer Hotel for going above and beyond and serving up the best bubbly, bites and desserts from Second Bar + Kitchen.  

The hospitality is top notch.  I highly recommend the whole team for your intimate and creative event needs!

Lovefest is an annual event, so if you missed out, you can visit us next year!

Eastside Map by Emma Gundlach

Since moving to East Austin almost a year ago, we've fallen madly in love.  To celebrate the upcoming EAST Studio Tour and our first anniversary, we commissioned the incredibly talented Emma Gundlach to create a map of our favorite spots. 

How beautiful is this?  We're so in love that we are providing complimentary hard copies to all of our amazing studio rental clients. 

The master plan is to take you guys on an Eastside tour while I cruise the streets on Black Beauty (my fixie). Stay tuned, my friends because we're headed for a yummy ride!

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!
