y all accounts, it’s been a long winter. Sure, Texas may have had it easier than other subzero regions of the country. But still, we weathered snow days, scraped ice from windshields, and threw old sheets over young citrus trees in the backyard. Rising temperatures and the intoxication of spring bring more than bluebonnets—they welcome the season of festivals and garden parties (like the Umlauf Garden Party on April 24, complete with alfresco art accompanied by cocktails and snacks from great restaurants). Spring also stirs our senses, so it’s a delicious time for the Austin Food & Wine Festival to roll into town and fire up its grills (and our appetites), April 25–27. Globe-trotting television host Andrew Zimmern, one of the festival’s headliners, is also an old friend and one of my favorite people, so I asked him about Austin’s food scene, his travel essentials, and the tacos on his horizon (page 30). It’s the perfect time of year to eat outdoors and savor the evening air. In the new column Austin Tables (page 58) we explore the lovely and unique ways Austinites come together over a meal. I can’t think of a better start than a rowdy crawfish boil on an East Austin farm. For more refined occasions, we asked expert party host and blogger Carla McDonald how to set the perfect spring table (page 108). As we shed winter’s layers, we’re drawn to the fresh styles of spring. In “The Art of Style” (page 46) we took inspiration from The Contemporary Austin's upcoming "Five x Seven" show and created playful ensembles inspired by specific works from the exhibition. I hope you’ll join me at the show at Brazos Hall on April 2. To ensure that you step out in style, we asked five local tastemakers for their footwear essentials in “Best Foot Forward” (page 68). Their inspired picks run the gamut from lace-up gladiators to the perfect nude ankle boot (warning: a shopping spree might ensue). We also chat with some of the Austin’s most thought-provoking designers, who are inspired by everything from well-constructed menswear to Japanese denim, including Richard Cole from Paleo Denim (page 90) and Esby’s Stephanie Beard (page 82). What I love most about Austin style is that it’s not stuffy or serious. It’s not “Fashion” with a capital F. Instead, we cherish interesting, locally made treasures, a spirit of individuality, and a little bit of funk. I can’t think of a better example than the staff at Cheer Up Charlie’s (page 94). (No, their hip crew is not from Central Casting—they really are that adorable.) Which is why Carly Beiler, one of their bartenders, inadvertently landed on our cover. With this issue we bid a sad farewell to Staley Hawkins, our marketing events coordinator, who is as kind and impossibly cheerful as her golden retriever, Stella. Staley has creatively staged countless Tribeza parties over the last two years. We’re proud that she’s chasing her dreams to Los Angeles, but we’ll miss her terribly. Parting after a job well done and with a legion of fans—that’s my idea of style.

Real Deal BY K RISTIN ARMSTRONG I llu s tr atio n by Joy G a ll ag h er
Spring is going to mean a little more to Austinites this year, be-
cause for once it actually feels like we had a winter. I have been layered in monochromatic colors long enough; it’s time to kick off my boots and wiggle my painted toes into some strappy shoes. Heck, I’m even ready to switch gears from cedar allergies to pollen, just to change things up. This is the time of year when nature goes through a transformation, breaking out of dormancy and bursting into color and new life. The air smells different. The light looks different, and green returns. The season tastes different, with new spring foods coming along. The world sounds different in the mornings, too, when we wake up to the chatter of the early birds again. It’s time to stretch and shake off the winter, come out of hibernation and renew ourselves inside and out. Spring is a wake-up call to remember what it means to feel beautiful and fully alive. But there is no amount of style that can make a woman lovely on the outside when she doesn’t feel loved and lovely on the inside. There is no dress that can make us confident. No manicure color that can make love ooze out of our hands when we touch the lives of our people. No shoes that can make us walk the walk or truly stand tall. No wrap can cover us from the chill of loneliness when our heart is running on fumes. No sunglasses can cut the glare of selfishness and help us really see people. No lipstick can make our smile real, our words kind, or our laughter contagious. No watch can keep us from wasting precious time by not being present and authentic. No lingerie is as sexy as genuine generosity, loyalty, and warmth. No earrings can sparkle the way a woman does when she really listens. No handbag is big enough for the woman who refuses to shed her baggage and travel light.
What I’m saying is this: we spend time and money making the outside pretty, and that’s not a bad thing. But what if this spring we spent some time (and maybe money?) making the inside fresh and absolutely gorgeous. I know some women who are good-looking people, but nowhere near beautiful because their hearts aren’t right. I also know some average-looking gals who are stunning, gorgeous and a magnet to men, women, children, and dogs everywhere they go—because they radiate beauty from heart center. I have a hard enough time understanding and applying this wisdom to myself, let alone translating it to my daughters as they walk the bouncy rope bridge between girls and women. But I try to convey the absolute necessity of being our real selves. I tell them that being free, open, and at ease in our own skin is the best outfit. I try to explain that we get more beautiful when we seek what is beautiful—when we do what we love, when we see the humor, when we embrace the light in ourselves and in one another. I tell my girls that when we stare at oceans, mountains, trails, sunrises, sunsets, stars, flowers, fireworks, and tables at farmers’ markets, we can’t help but absorb all of that beauty in our bones. I explain that of all the things you do to get ready to face the world, the most important thing is to brush your teeth, because a smile is the finest accessory of all. Being really beautiful—I mean being an absolute stunner, an eye-popper, a neck-twister, a knockout, a perfect ten—is well within the reach of every woman. Because the secret (shhhh!) of beauty is not the thing you think people remember about you. Beauty is a little bit about what you look like, but it’s everything about the way you make people feel.

Andrew Zimmern BIZARRE FOODS
ndrew Zimmern calls Minneapolis home, but the James Beard Award–winning host of the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern has clocked some serious time eating his way through Austin and Texas. I know this firsthand—Andrew is an old friend, and for two episodes of Bizarre Foods America I played tour guide, drove him around the back roads of the Hill Country (in a vintage canary yellow pickup, sans power steering), and feasted on belt-busting amounts of smoked brisket in Lockhart. Zimmern returns to Austin this month for the Austin Food and Wine Festival (austinfoodandwinefestival.com), April 25– 27, when he’ll join chefs like Tyson Cole and Tim Love (along with top winemakers and sommeliers) for hands-on grilling demos, the crazy competitive “Rock Your Taco,” and a knockout feast under the stars. Given his significant time on the road (Zimmern travels about 240 days a year), I couldn’t resist asking about how he plane-hops in comfort and style— and about the dishes on his Austin short list. p. di s b row e
9 Questions for andrew
What do you look forward to eating when you touch down in Austin? Frankly, belt-busting amounts of brisket . . . I also love exploring the places my local food-focused friends send me. I always want to hit Barley Swine, Uchi and Uchiko, and Foreign & Domestic to see what my chef pals are up to. This year, of course, I am going to check out Qui and Rene Ortiz’s new menu at Fresa’s. Why do you think Austin food is in the national spotlight? Austinites don’t mind being experimented on in restaurants. They are patient with works in progress, and they don’t hold grudges for a misstep. There are several cities like this across America, and it keeps creativity at a highly ramped level. Over time, it creates an atmosphere for great dining to thrive. Tell us a few don’t-miss moments at the Austin Food and Wine Festival.
APRIL 2014 tribeza.com
The taco competition is unlike any taco events at any of the big fests. The level of creativity and expression of “taco” blow my mind. It’s superb. The music attached to the events is beyond cool, and the intimacy of the festival makes it one of my favorites. What makes AFW unique and particularly fun for you? The intimacy, the immediacy, the meat always roasting in the center of the tented site, the easy laughter of the crowd, the insanely cool lineup of local chefs that I only get to see here, the Food Republic lounge, where I get to answer questions about REAL FOOD ISSUES that other places don’t ask me. Eating pretzels from Easy Tiger . . . I could go on forever. You’re a voracious reader. (A) When do you have time, and (B) what’s on your nightstand? I am, but I’m also a workaholic insomniac with a hard-on for literature. I am just finishing Command and Control, Eric Schlosser’s riveting new book about nuclear warheads aimed at our faces. I love short fiction, and George Saunders’s Tenth of December is insane. Check out William Boyd’s new Bond book. I have that started on my iPad. What can we expect from you in 2014?
Hopefully more of everything! I am expanding my AZ Canteen restaurant work, and I have a new line of kitchenware coming out based on oven/fire/ stove-to-table products that I have seen around the world. I’m also expanding my production companies’ work and will be producing more talent that I find around the world . . . and I am working on several new shows for myself, along with more Bizarre Foods. What are you most proud of? My wife and son, and playing in this year’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game Celebrity Softball event. Of all the places you’ve traveled, where would you like to buy a few acres to retire on? Colombia is a place I just visited, and there are some pretty amazing islands just off the coast of Cartagena. I can’t resist this question: Who is at the table at your dream dinner party, and what’s on the menu? I would host a stag including Teddy Roosevelt, Truman Capote, my kid but 20 years from now, Bill Murray, Jack Nicholson, Winston Churchill, John Lennon, Leonardo da Vinci, and a few others I’m blanking on. We’re probably dining on take-out Chinese and hopefully playing cards late into the night. p h oto COURTESY OF AUSTIN FOO D & W INE FESTIVAL
Andrew's Style Essentials
1. Baseball Cap: my Goorin Bros 'cock' hat is always on my head when my NORTH hat isn't. 2. Music: The last few years have all been about Alt-Country for me, Beck's latest (Morning Phase) is blowing my mind these days and I can't stop listening to it. Every day last week I listened to Girl From the North Country, the dylan/cash/perkins version. Something is happening to me in my old age. 3. Kicks: I collect Pumas and have to be wearing them almost all the time when I travel. The Super TT CC is a great one. 4. Skincare: I'm a Kiehls guy. The men's anti wrinkle and facial fuel energizing moisturizers are superb, all with SPF because I am always outdoors. 5. Magazine: Monocle. Addicted. I do everything on my iPad except Monocle because I just love the layout, design and the weight of it in my hands. 6. Scent: Hotel rooms can't help but smell like hotel rooms and since I spend 240 days in a year in them I like to use a room scent to keep things peaceful. Jo Malone makes several that are favorites. Pine from last year is my fave. Lime basil mandarin from this year is great too. 7. Jeans: My new obsession are my Joe's Jeans. The Brixton is my favorite pair. Goes anywhere.

Mallory Page at Wally Workman Gallery
allory Page tells a story with every brushstroke that she paints. Color to canvas, there emerges a pure sensory image that the eye can experience. It is by means of this same process that Page has fashioned her latest collection of works, premiering as the exhibit “Married in a Fever” at Wally Workman Gallery on April 5. “Married” tells the story of love through sensory, often monochromatic fields. Each painting is simple upon initial observation but, upon further reflection, reveals its intricacies through light, color, and layering. That is the beauty of much of Page’s work: subtle complexity. “Over the years I studied artists’ writings and discovered how they have interpreted and used love,” Page says. “Some were historically reckless, using the fuel from one new love to another. New love, crazy love, true love, self-love, love lost, and passion—each holds a different connotation of profound inspiration. Love can compel feelings that can be intensely moving or profoundly destructive.” Page calls New Orleans her home, but it’s safe to say that Austin is more than happy to have her and her work.

IN MY BAG : Jen Lewis of Purse and Clutch
Jen Lewis was frustrated with working in the nonprofit world when she “accidentally” started a fair-trade retail concept that directly benefits international artisans. Last year, one of Lewis’s college friends asked for help selling bags made by artisan groups in India. “People associate a certain ‘look’ with fair trade,” Lewis says, “but I looked at these bags and realized that they were totally beautiful and contemporary-looking; they just needed to be marketed differently.” Enter Purse and Clutch, Lewis’s new venture that offers fair-trade bags in an online, user-friendly marketplace. Since launching the site in April 2013, Lewis has started working with ten international artisan groups. “My goal is to meet the need of buyers who want something stylish, but want to be able to support economic growth in

S tephan i e M c C lenny of C onf i t u ras On the heels of a third Good Food Award (for pickled blueberries!) and in anticipation of the East Austin Urban Farm Tour (eastaustinurbanfarmtour.com) on April 13, Stephanie McClenny of small-batch jam and preserves kitchen Confituras shares a special recipe with TRIBEZA, and dishes on how she plans to literally preserve local canning history. Q: Tell me more about pickled blueberries. A: These sweet yet tangy preserves have a cult following when they come out every July! They are delicious when served on a charcuterie plate with cheese and pâté. Q: Can you share a bit of canning wisdom for an amateur? A: Our best advice is to keep it small. You really can make just a few
1. Heat berries and water in a medium saucepan over high heat until boiling, then lower heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the berries have lost most of their color. 2. Strain berries out (save them to make jam!) and return berry-colored water to pan. add sugar. bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for about 5 minutes until sugar is completely dissolved (you will no feel grit on the bottom of the pan) and the syrup has thickened somewhat. 3. Taste the syrup at this point to determine if you like the level of rosemary infusion (remember, a little goes a long way!). you can do this bringing a teaspoon of syrup to room temperature quickly in the freezer on a plate. 4. Add a few drops of red wine vinegar at this point (if using) to make a tangy 'shrub', or fruit vinegar. 5. If canning, pour mixture into hot jars and process for 10 minutes in a hot water bath. alternatively, allow to cool and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. 6. To serve, place 1-2 ounces syrup in 6 ounces Topo Chico, cava, or other sparkling wine. Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
jars of jam at a time. Also, use high-quality, fresh ingredients (local if you can get them), and follow recipes and instructions to the letter at first. You must know the rules before you can break them.

Q: What are you working on right now?
T h r ee lo c a l t h i n g s
A: We are very excited about our new project: Preserving Austin. We recently won the top grant from the Austin Food & Wine Alliance and will be using it to collect and archive oral histories from local canners with assistance from Foodways Texas. Preserving Austin also includes the process of building out a 1979 VW Transporter van—our “ConfiTour-Bus”—complete with a recording booth for the oral histories, a small jam-making demo kitchen, and a traveling canning museum that will visit farmers' markets, schools, fairs, and other events. Learn more about Confituras and where to pick up their delicious and seasonal preserves at confituras.net.

Stephanie is wearing the esby Westlake Dress in over-dyed black ($250).
Stephanie Beard Women’s clothing with a menswear sensibility.
That’s what Austin designer Stephanie Beard
set out to create in the inaugural collection esby (said like the phonetic pronunciation of “SB,” Beard’s initials), her first clothing line, which offers timeless, season-less pieces for women that emphasize comfort and proper fit. Originally from North Carolina, Beard moved to New York in 2003, and gained a technical background in the children’s design department at Tommy Hilfiger. From there, she went on to work at Levi’s and eventually Converse, where she spent the majority of her New York career in the menswear department. “I worked a lot on the Converse One Star line, which is sold at Target,” Beard explains. “Being involved in the whole process, from fabrics and wash to factory communication, I really focused on what you could do to get as much value as possible in a piece of clothing.” After five years at Converse, Beard left the East Coast in 2012, in search of a place that would allow her to live more affordably and throw all her energy (and savings) into her own clothing line, an idea that had been simmering in the back of her mind for years. Enter Austin. At home, Beard speaks with an easy drawl about her own style. Her daily “uniform,” she explains, is a mix of comfort, proper fit, and a handful of specific pieces that she’s overly sentimental about: for example, a light and perfectly versatile chambray shirt; high-waisted skinny jeans that she pairs with a blousy top or tunic; a couple of Australian-discovered basics that just have, she says, “the best weight.” Her one-bedroom apartment in southeast Austin, which she shares with her boyfriend, Nick Boyles, is similarly utilitarian. “Simple can still be interesting,” she says. And at 650 square feet (“believe me, it feels huge compared to the 250-square-foot place I lived in before this”), Beard has made the most of it, creating a home that feels consistent with her design principles. “In New York, I had a friend build me some great reclaimed-shelving units that are the central part of the living space,” she explains. Many of the pieces inside have a similar provenance, made either by friends or by Beard. The neutrality of the wood furniture is balanced by a healthy number of plants (Beard rattles off: “I’m obsessed with desert plants, clay-textured pieces, cactus, succulents . . .”) and textiles, vintage or purchased from “seriously weird rug websites,” like the gorgeous white-and-dark-brown-patterned Moroccan rug in her bedroom. It’s this same mix of personality and function that drives esby, which Beard funded in March through a Kickstarter campaign. This allowed her to quit her day job at STAG and dive into her dream—the first run of her line is being produced in a small factory in New Orleans and will be released in boutiques and on her website this summer. And despite the line’s underlying simplicity, esby isn’t just for the minimalist: “Busy women need to feel confident in what they’re wearing,” Beard says. “It takes me fifteen minutes to get ready and feel good because everything that I’m wearing just fits! That’s what I’m about—cutting out what’s unnecessary and figuring out what works.” Learn more about Stephanie, follow the development of esby, and preorder season one of her collection at esbyapparel.com. l . patterson P h oto g r a p h y by w y n n m y er s

ou might not know Chris Bilheimer's name, but you’ve probably held his work in your hands. The designer has been R.E.M.'s art director since 1994, and he's been the creative force behind
all of Green Day's releases since 1997's Nimrod. The albums he's designed have garnered combined sales of more than 30 million copies and have received three Grammy nominations for packaging. How did the road to rock stars start? In 1989, Bilheimer was a 23-year-old student pursuing an art and painting degree at the University of Georgia. In the small town of Athens, it was no big deal to run into Michael Stipe at a bar called the Globe or at the 40 Watt Club, a popular music venue. He eventually met Stipe through a mutual friend at the end of R.E.M.’s Green tour, and after a life-changing road trip (see opposite page) he was hired by the band full-time. So while his friends were washing dishes in restaurant kitchens or pulling pints of ale to make ends meet, Biheimer was hanging with one of the hottest bands on the planet. When it comes to college jobs, he hit the lottery. His fortuitous friendship and talent led to a 20-year staff position that was a springboard for an impressive career. Since then he’s worked for dozens of bands, including Nirvana, Weezer, Beck, and Smashing Pumpkins, and has designed for comedians David Cross, Sarah Silverman, and more, as well as for film and television posters and campaigns. To create the merchandise, Web design, and packaging that surround a new album, Bilheimer spent years flying back and forth to Los Angeles to camp out in the art department of Warner Brothers, and work with other major labels, among them Dreamworks, Capital, Geffen, and Interscope, creating the array of items like billboards, canvas banners, stand-up cardboard CD holders, and window clings (as well as other crazy stuff like View-Master cartridges and random inflatables) that Bilheimer’s basement studio.

the intimacy and immediacy of those days. “Now it’s pretty common for me to design an album for a band I’ve never met,” he says. He admits he misses some of the ephemera, and the crescendo of a project, but that nostalgia is tempered by a lack of waste. “It's a bummer to see so much paper and plastic end up in the garbage,” he says. Bilheimer and his wife, Hillary, moved to Austin three years ago. She was determined to learn the art of creating handmade shoes. Through six degrees of an album cover that Bilheimer designed, they met Joshua Bingaman, the owner of Helm Boots. That led to Hillary becoming Helm’s brand manager and Bilheimer’s latest project of rebranding the boot company. “The boots that Helm has designed for the future are evolving the American heritage aesthetic into newer territory, and I wanted a design that would match that,” he says. “It should feel new and

modern but with a classic foundation.” Ultimately the artist sees himself as a problem solver. “Every job is a collaboration,” he says. “I’m a conduit for other people’s visions.” Chris and Hillary love Austin because it feels like “a big metro Athens.” After being in such a small college town, where everyone is abuzz with more or less the same cultural events, “I actually love the fact that a band like the Pixies can blow through town and we don’t even know about it.” p. disbrowe Best Michael Stipe Moment “There are too many to count, but one is

It was on this trip that we saw a bunch of old road signs that inspired Michael for some T-shirt designs. After the trip, I was hired to design the shirts, since I had seen exactly what he was talking about and that led to my full-time job. In Utero by Nirvana had just come out, and we listened to it the entire trip. On cassette.”

Richard Cole, Paleo Denim
For denim designer Richard Cole, creating the perfect pair of jeans is like paleontology. As a child growing up outside Cleveland, Cole would accompany his father—an amateur paleontologist—on fossil-hunting adventures. “On those trips you get plenty of opportunities to broadly ponder evolution and the changes in time,” he explains. “Also, no tools that you bring survive the quarries—they’re too tough—so whatever gear you bring gets torn up and changes on a much faster scale.” For Cole, these early observations evolved into an overarching philosophy about work and craft, and a personal interest in intricate craftsmanship and old-school techniques. His ultimate medium of choice? Denim. His Austin-based line, Paleo Denim, officially launched last year after a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign. In Paleo, Cole aims to create a ready-to-wear line of jeans that regards every element—from stitching to cut—with a history-influenced but local sensibility. “In general, I’m inspired by anything that explores or exposes time,” Cole says. “Denim is so transfixing because it is in constant flux and only gets more beautiful as it ages. The pair of jeans you bought last year is not the same as the one you have now.” Cole is a self-taught designer; his mother showed him how to sew when he was home on college break as a film major at Syracuse. The process sparked an obsessive interest: “I started tearing apart old Levi’s for the patterns and hunting down industrial sewing machines,” he says. Inspired by meticulous, intricately stitched Japanese denim and old-school construction methods that allow for lengthy labor time (“If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well”), Cole spent the last four years in Austin learning more about the craft, hauling a growing collection of vintage sewing machines with him along the way. Researching denim and the best way to source it has taken him from West Texas to North Carolina to Japan. He spent 2013 figuring out how to transform Paleo from a hobCole is currently in a development phase of creating two new styles: a skinny and tapered leg.

Dolce Neve Gelato
mong the many recent imports to Austin’s booming restaurant scene, it’s hard to imagine a more purely pleasurable addition than Dolce Neve, a new gelato shop located on the increasingly bustling strip of South First Street. Dolce Neve (Italian for “sweet snow”) is housed in a quaint, cheery bungalow designed by Austin legend Dick Clark. But inside the doors the vibe is pure Italy, with an authentic gelato experience (complete with fedoras and charming accents) scooped up by people who have it in their DNA. Say “Ciao” to Francesca, Marco, and Leo, a trio of Italian entrepreneurs with a penchant for silky frozen sweets. Francesca Ferrarese, the store’s Gelato Maestro, trained at Carpigiani Gelato University and refined her skills at Pisa’s Gelateria De’ Coltelli, one of Italy’s most famous gelato shops. Along with her brother, Marco Ferrarese, and her fiancé, Leo Silvestrini, she brought her expertise to Austin to fulfill their shared dream of starting their own gelateria. So what’s the big deal—and the big dif-

ference—between gelato and ice cream? It comes down to the process and the ingredients. First of all, gelato is churned slowly and incorporates less whipped air, which results in a denser, silkier texture and more-concentrated flavors. And unlike ice cream, gelato is made with less cream and fewer, if any, egg yolks, resulting in a lower fat content. But let’s face it, we’re not counting calories here; gelato is all about pleasure. On any given day Dolce Neve features about 20 different flavors ($3.95 a single scoop, $4.90 for a double) each made in small batches to ensure freshness. There are classics like pistachio, hazelnut, and stracciatella, the Italian take on chocolate chip. There are also seasonal blends like cream with strawberries or dark chocolate with black cherries. You’ll also find modern combinations like carrot with blood orange, and ginger, ricotta with honey and pistachio, and goat cheese speckled with Texas pecans. It’s hard to go wrong with the flavor of the moment--salted caramel—but the best option

might be the namesake flavor, Crema Dolce Neve, a rich, decadent egg custard brightened with a kiss of lemon. The refreshing sorbetto selections feature punchy citrus like Texas grapefruit and Meyer lemon. Adventurous eaters will enjoy trying savory gelatos, such as Parmigiano-Reggiano, and the occasional vegan and dairy-free offerings. Careful attention is paid to how the gelato is stored and displayed. Don’t expect a garish carnival of colors under plastic sneeze guards. Instead, as in many of Italy’s finest gelaterias, selections are displayed in a sleek pozetti cabinet. Each flavor is covered with a fitted stainless-steel lid, protecting it from the harmful effects of sun, air, heat, and humidity and preventing it from forming an unappetizing film on top. In addition to cones and cups, Dolce Neve offers frozen novelties like pretty gelato sandwiches ($5.10), granitas, and gelato-on-a-stick treats. There’s even affogato, one of my favorite Italian dessert “drinks”—a shot of hot espresso poured over two scoops of gelato. It’s hard to imagine a better end to an evening. k. spezia P h oto g r a p h y by j e ss i c a pag e s

Setting the Perfect Spring Table She had us at cold gin, an abundance of
orchids, and the tagline “I feel a party coming on.” We’ve written about Carla McDonald, noted local hostess extraordinaire, philanthropist, and businesswoman, before. So we were de-
lighted (but not surprised) when she spun her
penchant for entertaining into her whimsical new blog, The Salonierre (thesalonniere.com). Named after 17th- and 18th-century Parisian women who knew a thing or two about throw-
ing a grand fete, The Salonniere celebrates the art of hosting and attending (etiquette, proper dinner party seating) grown-up parties. Evoca-
tive photos from Hollywood’s Golden Era and a friendly, conversational tone connect McDonald’s tips and observations on everything from flower arrangements to potent elixirs, and topics ranging from ball season in Vienna to the lore behind the original margarita.
With more than 20 years of experience in public relations and event planning (when she threw parties for everyone from Luciano Pavarotti to George Clooney), McDonald has plenty of parties to draw from. Which brings us to her inspiration
for spring. After a long, cold, icy winter in Austin, she’s ready “to celebrate the bright, fresh citrus colors and tastes of spring.” What follows? Her personal picks for decking out an alfresco table with the best looks of the season. Don’t forget your perfectly paired playlist, with selections like Herb Alpert’s “Tangerine” and “Lemon Tree,” Katy Rose’s “Lemon,” REM’s “Orange Crush,” etc. You get the picture: have fun—and feel your own party coming on. p. disbrowe
