What We Loved: The uber creative idea of pairing food and art, the food stations featuring the bites and the works of art that inspired them, hearing the chefs talk about how they came up with their bites, the yummy Tito’s Vodka cocktails, the tunes spun by DJ Gatsby, the casual vibe, and the hip Austin crowd.
