This year we are hosting a free Christmas Day Dinner Celebration for Austinites.
With the holidays coming up it has come to my attention that there are many people here in Austin that are transplants with no family locally or funds to travel during the holidays, myself included. This can make the holiday season awkward, or maybe you just need a break from the family this holiday. Hell, you can even bring the family. All are welcome. This is a non religious community event :)
Some of our event activities will include:
Pot Luck Style Christmas Dinner - For all of those who choose to participate it would be very helpful if you can bring a dish to add to the dinner spread.
Keep Santa Weird Contest - dress up in your best Austinite version of Santa and compete for prizes.
Christmas Free Swap Gift Exchange - Following dinner people can participate in an exchange of “gifts”. These gift items must be previously owned items in good condition that someone else may enjoy. You know that unopened box of (whatever) that has been taking up space in your closet for the past year! The point is to share what you already have, not to purchase something new. I have done this once before and it was a hit!
We are prepared for the weather with patio heaters on site including hot chocolate and hot apple cider
8 pm- Until?? CHRISTMAS COCKTAILS - As a group we will be heading down the road to Barton Springs Saloon for Christmas cocktails for those who are interested in participating
Open Room is an outdoor venue located in Sand Beach Park next to the Seaholm Power Plant on the corner of Cesar Chavez one block East of Lamar. There is parking surrounding the location.
There will be a few of us organizing before the party to participate in Christmas day volunteer activities at a local charity beforehand. Contact me if you are interested and I will add you to the list.
I am actively looking for sponsors for prizes, some food items, and entertainment. If you are interested or no someone who is or please message me :) :) :)
