Eat Local Week: Drink Local Night

Now, I’m sure most of you enjoyed or would have enjoyed attending the Drink Local Night, part of the Eat Local Week put on by Edible Austin. Tonight’s event was hosted by the Tipsy Texans at the Palm Door and catered by Pink Avocado. All of the spirits of Texas were gathered under one roof as patrons sampled local liquors from all of the participating vendors. There was even a cocktail contest with participants required to make unique indulgements for all the guests to sample. The vendors included Railean Handmade Texas Rum, Tenneyson Absinthe Royale, Dripping Springs Vodka, Paula’s Texas Spirits, Balcones Distillery, Dry Soda, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Treaty Oak Platinum Rum, and as always, proceeds from Eat Local Week benefit Urban Roots, a program of YouthLaunch, which teaches youth the benefits of community service and organic farming.
