We toiled quietly for 8 months before Austin media caught on to the hottest food parties in town. Our Scrumptious Chef Pop Up Restaurant series blew up this morning with a feature in Austin’s biggest entertainment blog: The Austinist.
This past weekend, a local journalist emailed us with a questionnaire concerning our pop up restaurants. Eric Puga authors the hottest beer blog in Austin: Craft Is Better, wherein he ruminates on all things beer, particularly, and deftly, Austin’s craft beer scene.
We responded with a breakdown on the nuts and bolts of the machinery that powers our events. We started small in July of last year with a launch party for our pop up restaurants at 3 Little Pigs and East End Wines. We pressed Willie Nelson’s old barbecue pit into service and sold out of brisket and hot guts sausage in about 3 hours.
Since then we’ve produced a total of 8 events, each one sold out with the most satisfying one being a Tex Mex party where we had to brave torrential rains. We figured we were on to something when we had a big crowd of eaters all dining under umbrellas!
