Eat the Heat 2011


The Austin Chapter of the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE) has chosen three downtown Austin venues to showcase some of the finest culinary talent in our community and their favorite ways to beat Austin’s triple-digit weather.  In addition to specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, there will also be live entertainment.

The theme for this 11th Annual edition of Eat the Heat is "Spice of Life." Everyone is welcome to join the fun and progressive cocktail party beginning at Hilton Garden Inn. The party then moves to Max's Wine Dive for hors d'oeuvres and finally ends at the grand finale at the Marriott Austin Downtown for more food and live music.

This year's charity partner is The Smile Never Fades, a support charity for those affected by breast cancer.
