In light of Hurricane Harvey, there’s been some changes with SouthEATS. Many of us were personally affected by the disaster, so after a long week of deliberating, our team has decided it’s best to postpone the event. However, for those of us that will still be in Austin we would like to invite you to join us for two casual events:

Saturday, September 23rd, 5-7pm (Open to the public)
Happy Hour on the Observation Deck at Boiler Nine
We will be providing some light appetizers, cash bar available.
Boiler Nine is family-friendly.

Sunday, September 24th, 5-9pm (RSVP only)
Private Family Dinner catered by Chefs Yia Vang, Jen Phanomrat, and Seng Luangrath
Tickets available here:
Venue: Wanderin’ Star Farms (12665 Silver Springs Road)

On behalf of the CK team, we do hope that you can understand our decision. We are disappointed but know that the urgent need to help restore Texas is much more pressing at this time. If you’d like to donate to the victims of Harvey, we’re asking that you help us send non-perishable items to Central Texas Food Bank as they are providing relief to thousands across the state.

Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this has caused. Please notify your networks or any personal contacts you’ve invited of the cancellation. If you have already purchased your ticket, you will be receiving a private email by the end of the week.
