Liz Lambert, proprietress extraordinaire of the ultra-hip Hotel San Jose, place-to-be-seen Jo's Coffee and various other Austin businesses, recently opened the boutique Hotel Saint Cecilia in the very same hot SoCo neighborhood.
They've teamed up with Dai Due, a supper club focused on locally farmed food, for a great evening at a great price! Dinner will be a local Central Texas extravaganza (although, veggies beware!!) -- wild boar, rabbit, venison, antelope and fish from Broken Arrow Ranch. And don't worry about mom... you'll eat your local seasonal vegetables and grains too - from Boggy Creek Farm.
Dinner is supposedly sold out - but I'll let you Golightly Girls in on a secret. If you book a room at the Hotel Saint Cecilia, you're a VIP and those rules just don't apply to you. (Isn't that just the way life SHOULD be?) Plus, you'll get a 25% discount on the room, and the fabulous dinner spread for only $75 per person.
When does this action go down? THIS Sunday - Feb 1 at 7pm. So grab your girls, hit up the music in Austin on Saturday night -- and stay for the gourmet grub on Sunday night! After dinner, you can hit up local alternative video store Vulcan Video for the documentary "Last Days of the San Jose" to watch Liz Lambert turn a former flophouse into every musician's landing pad of choice in the Music Capital of the USA. And, hey, while you're there, wander across the street to knock on the door of Holiday Golightly founder Kerry Rupp.
