Greetings from Austin + Contest Announcement

Posted on Updated on

Hello there!

The three of us are in sunny (really! It’s 80 degrees here today!) Austin Texas doing research for potential seminar space, havin’ meetings, and eating tacos. Lots and lots of tacos.

And guys? We’re loving it so far. There’s soy (and coconut) creamer for coffee, alfalfa sprouts as a condiment option, and puffy tacos. Not to mention awesome event spaces, friendly locals, and margaritas.

Here’s a few pictures of what we’ve been doing (eat eating) so far:
