    Desert Door Sotol: WILD Meal Series

    Desert Door Sotol presents its first Wild event series of three custom-curated meals and experiences in the wilderness at Spoke Hollow Ranch in Wimberley. Yes, that’s a three-course meal – either a brunch or dinner selection – prepared by three distinguished Austin chefs (Julien Hawkins of Hestia, Amanda Turner of The Fiery Talon, and Contigo’s Ty Burton), and the dishes will be paired with signature Desert Door cocktails, all in a breathtaking landscape under the big Texas sky. Oh, and there's even more to it! Suggestion: Check that website ASAP to see if tickets are still available.
    Fri.-Sat., Oct. 15-16. $135.
