On Thursday, July 3rd, RT SideQuest will host the third annual RTX SideQuest Cocktail Party and Charity Auction at the Radisson Hotel and Suites in downtown Austin. This year, thanks to a remodel of the Radisson’s ballroom that added over 600 square feet of space AND an awesome view of Lady Bird Lake, we have space for even more people to join in the party!
In addition to the larger, more modern ballroom, we’ll also enjoy a revamped menu! The old TGI Fridays in the lobby of the Radisson has been dumped in favor of “chavez“, a new restaurant from Chef Shawn Cirkiel (Also responsible for “olive & june” “parkside” and “the backspace“). As part of that transition, the catering menu has been completely updated as well, and Garrett (aka toomuchghb), in his role as Food and Beverage Coordinator, has put together a great collection of dishes to feed everyone. Oh, and of course we’ll have PLENTY of cash bar stations!
We’d like to think that this year’s lineup of auction items is our best yet, but you’ll have to be the judge of that. We’ve got everything from custom drinkware to RWBY quilts. We’ve got amazing artwork and stunning statues. And we’ll also unveil the first SideQuest Signature Series (A continuation of the idea started with last year’s Project 10), RT Renaissance. Not in the mood to get in bidding wars and part with your hard-earned cash? Come out anyway and just enjoy the party! You never know who you might run into…
Since we like to keep the auction as a classy affair, we always recommend people dress up a bit for it. That means we get endless questions about what people should wear, and do a pretty terrible job of explaining the suggested dress code. But this year we’ve got you covered! The brilliant Ailsa Campbell (aka ailsarocks) wrote a whole series of posts for the Rooster Teeth is Fashionable group that we’ve archived and re-posted here on our site as “RT SideQuest is Fashionable“. There’s advice for both ladies and gents in there, so be sure to check it out!
Be sure to grab your tickets to the auction ASAP! Barbara is worried that you won’t be there and will miss out on all the fun!
See you in a few weeks!
