2ND Street District
Pull out your best white attire because one of the most anticipated culinary events of the year is back for its 7th year and you don’t want to miss out. White Linen Night is taking over the 2ND Street District and bringing some of Austin’s favorite restaurants for an evening full of food, drinks, music, and so much more!
There are two ticket levels available depending on what you are looking to get out of the evening. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either. You can go with the general admission ticket and receive wine pairings, beer, cocktails, and bites. The VIP option includes everything general admission does plus entry an hour early with a complimentary glass of bubbly upon arrival plus a YETI tumbler to take home as a souvenir from the night!
