Brand new pop up this Sunday October 21st 2012

While the pop up restaurant phenomenon is huge in cities like New York, Chicago and New Orleans, Austin Texas is still in its infancy. We predict this will change over the course of the next year. Way back in 2010 Ben Runkle and his Salt and Time Charcuterie crew threw the first pop up we ever attended at the historic Victory Grill {} and we figured that event would usher in the rise of the concept.

We were wrong. But now the 900lb gorilla of Austin’s food and beverage scene is getting in on the action. The Alamo Drafthouse is hosting their first pop up event at Midnight Cowboy, the former brothel {lair of Austin’s infamous call girl “Diamond Pussy”} on 6th street.
