Aug. 21: Pie Love Fundraiser for SafePlace

12 August 2011 1,625 views No Comment

There are some really fun food events coming up this weekend and next weekend that I want to make sure you know about. They each feature delicious food, entertainment, giving back to the community, and maybe best of all, AIR CONDITIONING. Yes, it’s been over 100 degrees for way too long here in Austin. We are currently at over forty days of over 100 degree heat…it’s almost biblical what is going on down here! But thank goodness for that air conditioning.

Check out this 7 Day Forecast from KVUE News. Depressing, yes?

Anyway, this weekend, I’m competing in the Slow Food Austin Quiz Bowl. It’s 12-4 p.m. on Sunday and features trivia, food, and drink specials for just $15 — and the proceeds go to a good cause.

If you can’t join us this weekend (or even if you can), I urge you to check out a fundraising effort by the Austin Food Blogger Alliance, an organization where I serve as a board member, and the Alamo Drafthouse to raise money for SafePlace. We’ll be showing the movie Waitress, and eating delicious PIE on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 1 p.m. For more details check out the Austin Food Blogger Alliance website; tickets are available online. Grab a friend and buy yours before they sell out!
