Rude Mechs' will present their annual benefit, The Pearl Dive. In traditional Pearl Dive fashion, the event will be a drink-filled, Gulf Coast-sourced seafood feast of grilled red snapper, grouper, cobia, shrimp, oysters, a raw bar with boiled shrimp, and whatever else the fishermen bring in that week. With Chef Shane Stark at the helm, some of Austin’s finest chefs will be cooking at the event, including Josh Matlock, Executive Chef of Nightcap Dessert Lounge, and Chef Ruston Richardson, Executive Chef of Coast.
For Rude Mechs’ lovers who are vegans and vegetarians, Chef Stark has brought along Mongers' Cesar Chavez neighbor, Sue Davis, Chef and owner of Counter Culture specializing in internationally inspired vegan dishes destined to delight vegans and omnivores alike.
New to East Austin but long celebrated sensation in Madrid and throughout Spain, Cien Pizzitas will be delivering via moped all night, delectable handmade and cooked to order six-inch pizzas offering an array of Spanish-style toppings. And Austin's catering sensation Austin Pig Roast, will be serving their famous frisée au lardons salad.
