WTFwed: shopping, raw chocolate and two FUNdraisers 2.4.15

Hey y’all hey! I hope you’re hungry because this coming week is absolutely delicious.

On Thursday night, SoLa is taking their 1st Thursday Game to the next level by hosting their first ever “Girl’s Night Out” party. Sure, they’ll have the usual awesome 1st Thursday Sale pricing, but this month (and every 1st Thursday for the duration of 2015) they’re serving small bites and adult beverages from WineBelly and Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop. AND, they’re showcasing Austin jewelry designer Haley LeBeuf who will be on hand selling her elegant timeless jewelry. Kendra Scott who? I’m just saying… Full details are here.


Fun fact: Miss Venus will be in attendance as per usual. See y'all there!

Saturday is superfab as well. For the Martha Stewart types, check out the Natural Epicurean’s Raw Chocolate making class. Sign up now to secure your spot!

If you’re more Ke$ha than Martha you can do some serious FUNdraising at Cupid’s Undie Run. Festivities start at noon at the Rattle Inn but the race itself doesn’t start until 2pm. It’s all for a good cause, as your money goes towards fighting tumors. Who can’t get behind that? 😉

Finally, and I do mean finally as this year’s event was pushed a week to sidestep inclement weather than never showed (oh, Austin…): It’ the 9th annual Chili Cook Off at Jo’s on South Congress! Your $20 ticket let’s you try all of the chili and supports the 100 Club of Central Texas. That’s the non-profit dedicated to providing emotional and financial support to our local police and fireman when they have been injured or killed in the line of duty. Seriously, you get to binge eat chili and it supports our 1st responders. SEE. YOU. THERE.

Given the all around yumminess of this week ahead I’m particularly eager to see you in the socialsphere (and also in real life). Tag your posts with #StatesmanSocial to  be heard… and seen… and possibly shared! #SharingIsCaring

Tune in Friday for our latest #GoodToKnow episode. In the meantime, have a great week y’all!
