I am super excited to be covering SXSW this year. I love Austin and my home state! I can just taste the Tex-Mex and BBQ right now. And I am going to be covering some amazing events this year, starting with the Supper Suite at STK. Celebs such as Josh Lucas, Emmy Rossum and Zachary Quinto will all be in attendance promoting their films and enjoying the delish food. There will be lots of great scoop!
Fresh from its triumphant weekend in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival and pre-Academy Awards® “Supper Suite by STK” for Sony Pictures Classics, leading LA-based special events group A-List Communications and its sponsor partners, STK, Blue Moon Brewing Company, Maestro Dobel Tequila, and Murviedro imported Spanish wines will bring “Supper Suite by STK” to Austin, TX during the opening weekend of its infamous film, tech and music festival.
For two days on March 9 and 10, 2014, “Supper Suite” will take over the acclaimed restaurant Swift’s Attic located at 315 Congress Street and host cast cocktail receptions and dinners for official SXSW selection films THE MEND, starring Josh Lucas, Lucy Owen and Mickey Sumner; BEFORE I DISAPPEAR, starring Emmy Rossum, Paul Wesley, Ron Perlman, Shawn Christensen and Richard Schiff; and WE’LL NEVER HAVE PARIS, starring Maggie Grace, Zachary Quinto, Simon Helberg, Jason Ritter and Alfred Molina.
The three events feature a signature menu specially designed by STK’s culinary team across cocktail event and seated dinner formats. “We’re excited to head to Austin and bring “Supper Suite by STK” to life in such a thriving culinary scene and unique festival,” said its Senior Vice President, Celeste Fierro. Beer pairings will be designed by Blue Moon Brewing Company, with signature cocktails created by Dobel Tequila, including the Black Diamond Margarita.
As a special guest and featured entertainment, A-List Communications with Big Machine Agency has secured recording artist, Olivia Somerlyn to perform during each event of the Supper Suite by STK, which will be her debut at SxSw.
