Frozen Treats Fest at Holiday on East Seventh

Beat the heat while you eat the sweet!

Summer isn’t quite over yet in Austin, citizen, which is why this Frozen Treats Fest at Holiday (5020 E. Seventh), the popular Eastside cocktail bar and restaurant, is a perfect way to cool down your overheated carcass and enjoy some of the tastiest cold confections in town – from a veritable supergroup of local chefs.

Laura Sawicki's Banana-Milk Gochugaru Fudgesicle swirl popsicles are part of the Frozen Treats Fest

On Thursday, Sept. 21, 5pm, Holiday will host Michelin-starred chef Margarita Kallas-Lee (co-owner of Sushi by Scratch Restaurants and Pasta Bar), who will preview a dessert from Wolf and Wheat, her new dessert shop and commissary opening this fall; New Waterloo’s James Beard nominee Amanda Rockman, with her extraordinary blueberry cobbler sundae; Jam Sanitchat of Thai Fresh and Gati, presenting a gluten-free, vegan ice cream cake with peach compote; another James Beard nominee – Laura Sawicki of Oseyo, with her Banana-Milk Gochugaru Fudgesicle swirl popsicle; and of course treats from Holiday’s own talented chef Peter Klein.

Tickets (sold at the door only) are $15, and will assure that you’re not only eating cool and fancy and sweet, but also helping support Jane’s Due Process, a nonprofit providing legal representation for pregnant and parenting minors in Texas.
