Raucous Bacchus, yo!

Saturday night, after the shower (and, for Mark, the UTvUTEP game) we headed downtown to Arthouse at the Jones Center's Raucous Bacchus TOGA PARTY! (No, we didn't wear togas- but, little did we know, we wouldn't have been out of place with a helmet and an bed sheet draped asymmetrically across our shoulders...)

Our friends, Sean and Ruth, joined us for a Roman-style banquet complete with on-table kegs and appropriately toga-ed servers. The food was delicious, and the recreation of Rome was an interesting experience to say the least. The event was catered by Fete Accompli... and I will be searching for a recipe to mimic their Beef Tenderloin with Truffled Tomato Sauce. Truffled Tomato Sauce? Yes, it is good.

And, Mark and I 'competed' in our first ever live auction... and successfully bid on a trip to Miami during its Art Basel event this December. Quite exciting! (And, the good thing is, after all the red wine and table-tapped beer, we still remembered that we won!)

Plus, our contributions help Arthouse close the gap on their reconstruction fundraising goal. It's an amazing art venue, that will, once re-construction is complete, be a beacon for contemporary art in Austin. We're happy to be a part of it!
