Show & Tell Fall 2014


This past Wednesday night we celebrated the launch of our inaugural Show & Tell book, a guide filled with our favorite businesses, nonprofits, stories and more. The night was a success, topped with a live performance from Austin hip-hop/neo soul band Magna Carda, complimentary cocktails from Austin Cocktails, catered nibbles from Pink Avocado and great giveaways donated by some of our partners. We would like to give a warm thank you to everyone who came out and of course, all of our partners and supporters. Show & Tell books are now available throughout the city, so be sure to snag one at one of the many locations around Austin with our books in stock. If you can’t get to a copy just yet, we’ve got you covered. Below are our partners and their amazing stories and our very first Show & Tell issue.
