Who doesn't love photo booths? They capture a quick second of bliss with your friends that you can keep forever. Introducing a photo booth unlike any other-- Quick Draw Photo Booth is an experience, a laugh, a performance. The routine is similar to any other photo booth, but their photographer is also an artist who "develops" 3 photos in 3 minutes. These aren't just ordinary photos. They're actually drawings of each photo onto a filmstrip that you can take as a keepsake. The real photo will be available online after the event so you can enjoy the best of both worlds!
It's time again for the Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center's annual Fall fundraising Gala. For the past six years, the gala has been an amazing success because of the generosity of sponsors and individuals who believe in helping children with dyslexia. The Gala is pertinent to the Dyslexia Center as it raises 25% of the Center's annual budget.
Please join the wonderful cause and attend the 2013 Literacy for Life Gala on Sunday, October 20 from 5:30-9:30pm. Your attendance will help provide a two-year dyslexia therapy program for children and will fund the training of dyslexia therapists. Held at the Westin Austin at the Domain, the elegant evening will be complete with a cocktail hour, seated dinner, live tunes and a live auction.
Behold, the most glorious weekend(s) for music lovers and Austinites alike – though we generally like to think those are synonymous, right?
We, at Tribeza, are anxious to see some good live music playing. Here’s some staff picks of who we’re most excited to see:
If you’ve recently driven by or taken a run on Lady Bird Lake, you may have noticed something a new addition to the beautiful scenery—hauntingly large white tree flanked by rows of white flag. Women & Their Work presents THIRST, an art installation and collaborative project by architects Emily Little and Norma Yancey, art director Beili Liucalled, and landscape architect Cassie Bergstrom.

Kelly White, designer of Kelly Wynne Handbags, embodies everything that her line stands for - classy, cute, and with just a hint of sass. If you haven't heard her name swirling around the Austin social circles yet, just wait; Kelly Wynne Handbags is making quite the impression. I sat down with the Austin native to discuss her entry into the accessories arena.
This is how we brunch… with a side of Whiskey Shivers, naturally.
Here at TRIBEZA, there’s nothing we love more than food. And music. And fashion. So, if you whisk that all together, we give you our Southern Brunch where everything that’s good about life, like Houndstooth Coffee and Eden East, is brought to you in a delicious package at Springdale Farm, capped off with a performance by Whiskey Shivers.
Necessity truly is the mother of invention, at least for Austinite Sean Greenberg, who had a realization at his family’s business Allens Boots after the shop was repeatedly approached by daily deal and coupon websites. “There was something missing,” he explains. “There are photo-sharing apps like Pinterest and Instagram, and daily discount apps [like Living Social or Groupon]…but there needed to be an ecommerce platform for local businesses that wasn’t deal-based.”
And so DRYGOODS was born, an app for local businesses to post and sell their merchandise, which officially launches at next month’s TRIBEZA Style Week.
I usually associate the words “garage sale” with digging through piles upon piles of mismatched china, kitsch lamps usually decoupaged with various sea shells and/or shuffling through paraphernalia from a husband’s favorite sports team that his wife is trying desperately to give away. But then again Le Garage Sale is not your average neighborhood garage sale. A 15-year Austin tradition, this semi-annual sale brings together over 60 retailers offering everything from women’s and men’s apparel and accessories to kids clothes and home goods (and did we mention everything is discounted?).
Everyone loves a good road trip. I’ve loved them since I was little. My family would pile into the suburban and take off for some snow skiing or beach time. Although the car’s confined space always caused a few arguments between my brother and I, those rides are some of my favorite memories.
Here in Texas we’re pretty lucky to have so many diverse destinations close to us. You don’t have to travel too many miles or cross any state lines to reach somewhere awesome. Here are a few places right here in good ol' Texas that are worth a weekend road trip.
