Greetings from Austin, Texas! We’ve been quite the busy bees lately and this week has gotten off to a great start! Today was our first day of catering at Austin City Limits and we kicked it off with a light and refreshing lunch which included tasty gyros and cool veggie wraps to satisfy in this 100+ degree weather. Our 3600 sq foot dining room got a makeover this year by one of our creative team leads and event coordinator, Caroline Galjour. Her style which we’ve coined as ‘eco-eclectic’ utilizes items that have all been re-purposed. Some of my favorites include a ‘clothespin chandelier’, retro 1950’s booths, and hand crafted art by our dining guests. The style seems fitting for such a unique town that focuses much energy into conservation. Although we’ve been incorporating eco-friendly supplies such as cups, plates, flatware and compostable plastics for the last 6 years, it’s definitely been an education process since many of our guests come from all over the United States and beyond. It’s amazing to be able to utilize such a great composting and recycling effort here in Austin and do it successfully!
In addition to our extensive team at ACL in Austin, our home operations are just as busy this week! A&M is gearing up to BTHO Idaho and that translates into many great events throughout the course of the week and this coming weekend. Additionally, we can’t forget to mention that it’s Aggie Ring Day this Friday and we are honored to be able to share this special day with many at the Clayton Williams Jr Alumni Center! All are welcome to celebrate and congratulate these Aggies on earning their ring. We have 2 employees getting their ring Friday, so congrats to Chris Schuett and Marcus McDermott!
Hope your week goes as smoothly as ours! Stay tuned for more news from Austin….
