Angelina Eberly Luncheon
The annual Angelina Eberly Luncheon hosted by the Austin History Center Association brought a full house to the Driskill Hotel. Folks were having so much fun visiting that considerable urging was needed to get them into the ballroom for the lunch and program. Association President Charles Betts offered greetings and invited all to enjoy lunch before beginning the program. On the podium was Moderator John Street (Principal, John Street Beachfront Properties) with panalists Sandy Gottesman (Founding Partner, Live Oak Gottesman), John Rosato (Principal, Southwest Strategies Group) and Tom Stacy (Founding Partner, Capridge Partners). They presented a fascinating look at Austin development during the 1970’s to present. The changes to the Austin skyline have been remarkable both with new buildings and preservation of old buildings. Being Austin, the process of change had more than a few voices offering advice along the way. The resources of the Austin History Center were used by all in creating the new and preserving the old. Many thanks are due the sponsors of the luncheon who represent a wide swath of business and private community citizens.
Special kudos are also due to the Driskill Hotel as very gracious hosts and the kitchen staff led by Executive Chef Troy Knapp, Special Events Chef Brian Contreras and Pastry Chef Tony Sansalone. The lunch was superlative and the dessert by Chef Sansalone was just off the charts–(Helen Corbitt’s Pecan Ball Dessert).
