Hi Everyone,

This should be a fabulous evening--lets help celebrate the Christmas holidays at the fabulous Driskill Hotel--If you havent been here during the holdiays, the decorations are just gorgeous--

We will be upstairs enjoying half price appetizers and drink specials--live entertainment upstairs as well--

Plenty of standing room, if you want a seat, need to come early as it is limited, and it will be first come first serve as this will not be a reservation for held seats--

Down stairs in the lobby area where you can enjoy their famous tree, will also be free treats from the Driskill 1886 bakery and music--and then upstairs in the bar area is where we can enjoy more music and appetizers--

Something from their web page

The Driskill Hotel opened on December 20, 1886-shortly before Christmas--to great fanfare and applause from the under 20,000 citizens who inhabited Austin at the time. The Austin Daily Statesman put out an eight-page special edition of the newspaper in a seven-tiered headline to announce that "...The building presents an imposing and inviting appearance, as it looms up like a palace above all the surrounding buildings."

Since that time, the "grande dame" of Texas hotels has remained a magnificent gathering place for Austinites, Texans and others to celebrate the holidays and other special moments of their lives in Col. Jesse Driskill's splendid Victorian masterpiece.

We invite you to recapture a nostalgic memory from a holiday season long past and to create new memories for your family and friends during 12 Days of Driskill

Hope to see you there

    hi Laurie, you can do either--as you will have causal, coming from work, and you will have dressy--both in this place are acceptable--

    Hello, what is the dress code? I'm not sure what to wear yet & I'd like not to be overdressed or underdressed. Does it matter?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
