Austin Post's City-Wide White Elephant Party!

This month for our Third Thursday Mix & Make Crafty Hour, we'll be out at this fantastic shindig thrown by Austin Post! We're doing an awesome make & take {what you ask? it's a surprise!} and you're invited!

The deets: Bring a wrapped gag gift and exchange it for another wrapped gift, which could be a fabulous prize from a sponsor, or it could be Aunt Nelda's hand-crocheted coasters. Trading is A-OK, and you're required to write your gag gift on your nametag, so outlandishness is encouraged.

* Free drinks from Dulce Vida Tequila & St. Germain (a fabulous holiday Hibiscus Jalapeno Martini - sounds delish!)
* Dulce Vida and St. Germain tequila sunrise cupcakes from the Cupcake Fairy, MisoHungry herself
* Free pizza by Promise Pizza, one of the newest and greatest pizza spots in Round Rock
