Native Hostel is a bar and hostel located on East 4th in Austin, TX. It’s also where Wander/Gather held a meet up. Wander/Gather rented out the second floor for their private event. The second floor is the hostel quarters with a meeting space and bar. Guests were given tickets for free drinks, had access to small plates for food provided by Native Hostel’s in-house catering, played Cards Against Humanity, and were wowed by a magician.
For food, Native Hostel served a “Build Your Own Buddha Bowl” with quinoa, tofu, avocado, kofta, edamame, chile, peanut, and tamari lime dressing, Sambal Barbacoa Tostadas, Fish Puppies, and Crispy Egg Rolls. I can personally attest to the deliciousness of the eggs rolls.
Card Against Humanity brought all the guests together as a community. Wander/Gather included little details like their specialty cards that were thrown into the deck.
The magician that Wander/Gather brought to the event performed mind boggling tricks that astounded those who watched him! Honestly, I find magicians to be sort of cheesy, but not this guy! This magician didn’t make a huge show out of his tricks, but demonstrated them as casually.
