As a rule, we loathe uniforms. It brings back bad high school memories of white polo shirts and navy blue skirts (Go Eagles). But themed costume parties are a different story. We can’t wait for 2ND Street District’s Fourth Annual White Linen Night on Aug. 6, a ticketed block party featuring delectable bites, beer and wine pairings and free, in-store events. Plus, it’s for a good cause: this year’s beneficiary will be the Sustainable Food Center, an organization devoted to strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food.
“Sustainable Food Center is delighted to participate in 2ND Street District’s White Linen Night,” said Ronda Rutledge, executive director of SFC. “We work with several 2ND Street District restaurants and chefs who support our mission, including The Bonneville and Trace. These chefs source ingredients locally and shop at the SFC Farmers’ Market Downtown on Saturdays.”
2ND Street District marketing manager Shana Ogg said, “With all guests decked out in white, the event has certainly evolved to become one of downtown Austin’s most stylish affairs.”
Time to bust out that gorgeous cream babydoll that your best friend deemed “way too bridal” to wear at any of this summer’s weddings. Or, what the heck? Why not throw on the wedding dress from your first marriage? Might as well wear it for a cause that’s truly sustainable, unlike your two-year union with that two-faced Dallas psychiatrist.
