Wander/Gather Event at Eden East

A magical night of al fresco dining at Eden East was hosted by Wander/Gather. Wander/Gather is a startup that hosts special events every few weeks for members to attend. This event was a special catered dinner at Eden East. Eden East is a restaurant out of Springdale farm. Guests can walk around the farm where produce is grown and animals are raised. The menu comes directly from what is grown at the farm, so you can be sure everything is fresh and local. Wander/Gather set up games around the property for guests to play before dinner was served as well as a bar with specialty cocktails. There was a nice surprise during the dessert course: a birthday candle was placed on one of the french toasts for one of the guests to blow out! It was one of the woman’s birthday, so the chefs kindly put a candle on her dessert that way she could blow it out and celebrate! She had 40+ people singing happy birthday to her, it’s such a treat!

The weather was so lovely! We had clear skies, and cool air - definitely a nice break from the overbearing Summer heat Austin usually experiences in August.
