Let’s Spoon: A Recap of our Launch Party

On February 8th, around 300 hundred students rounded the corner of Love Goat eagerly awaiting access into the Texas Spoon University launch party. Food vendors from all over Austin were generous enough to donate tons of treats to the event, ranging from curried chicken tostadas from The Peached Tortilla to ice cream from Cow Tipping Creamery. Pinkberry even had its own mini stand, accompanied by servers handing out fresh froyo for all.

When they weren’t stuffing their faces, students could be seen guessing how many Snickers were in a jar or getting their pictures taken by some of our photographers. It’s only fitting that our photo booth was completely decked out with kitchen props and of course, a giant spoon. We also raffled off gift cards to Zen and Kerlin BBQ, free meal coupons to Greengos and VIP Favor codes.

Many thanks again to the rest of the vendors that helped make our event a huge success:

Pita Pit
Snap Kitchen
Gourdough’s Donuts
Cream Whiskers
Butterfacebakeshop
Bon Bon Macarons
Nothing Bundt Cakes
Beanitos
Towers Pizza
Gregorio’s Food Truck
Red Mango
Miltos
Panera Bread

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more Texas Spoon University events. This is only the beginning.
