What: White Linen Night

Where: 2nd Street District

The lowdown: An Austin crowd dressed in cool whites headed to 2nd Street District for the fourth annual White Linen Night on Saturday. The white-hot block party featured bites from some of Austin's hottest restaurants — Alcomar, Lonesome Dove, Malaga Tapas and Wine Bar, Taverna, La Condesa, and more — paired with sips from 4th Tap Brewing Cooperative and top wineries.

Americana band The Traveling Ones provided tunes, while guests strolled the downtown district. Proceeds from White Linen Night benefit The Sustainable Food Center, which supports food security in Central Texas.

Who: Kevin Benz, Olga Campos Benz, Richard Rashad Romeo III, Corey Romeo, Liz Eicks Ruchte, Benjamin Q. Ruchte, Justin Ahmanson, and Emily Villareal.
