During these unfathomable times, the way we do life has changed. Now we are required to think innovatively in order to conduct ourselves with some normalcy while staying safe and following the rules.
That is exactly what Pearl Snap Farmhouse/Pearl Snap Cuisine has done in creating Drive-In Events! Jackson and Alicia Bolton, the owners of Pearl Snap Cuisine, are resourcefully and creatively converting two separate 5-acre pastures at their ranch in Austin, Texas, into a drive-in event space. Located just 21 miles south east of Downtown Austin, the event space will be complete with a stage and video screen with audio for weddings, graduations, recitals, fundraisers, and more.
This is allowing guests to "celebrate together, safely apart". Not only do guests have a safe environment to host their event, Peal Snap Cuisine also has catering covered with prepared meal boxes! We asked Pearl Cuisine to elaborate on their efforts with a Q&A:
What kind of events are possible at this space?
-We have been getting requests for so many types of events such as graduations, where a graduate can still walk across a stage for their family to see. Family members or guests could take to the stage one at a time to give a small speech or give a little future advice to their student.
-We are also doing fundraisers that would normally have to have been postponed or even cancelled due to not being able to get guests in one place.
-Weddings would be wonderful here too, cars lining our very long driveway where the ceremony could actually take place right in between on a lovely gravel drive with gorgeous Texas country views all around. A first dance followed by a cake cutting by the couple all right there in the middle for their guests to see and cheer them on. What a spectacular image!
-Another client is looking at hosting their dance recital. What a great and safe way to have an audience for the dancers to perform to since they have been working so hard remotely.
We would love to talk with anyone wanting to host a safe and memorable event. The sky is really the limit to what we could do if we dream and create together.
What is the price for Drive-In Events and what is included?
The venue space is $500.00 for your event and then just $20/guest. That will include a personal boxed meal and bottle of water brought to each car practicing the safest health standards to ensure a great and safe event! We will offer other options as well to make the event more custom and personal, just like any planned event only with a different view point!
Are Drive-In Events in compliance with sat at home orders?
We have found this to be the safest possible option for adhering to the safety measures for all guests and truly this would be even more of a safety measure as there could be an entire function with no guest to guest interaction. As guests will be remaining in their own cars and parked at an outdoor only space they would be able to partake in the festivities from afar watching on a big screen. Very much being part of the action, seeing all the tiny moments and such but still being safe and distant. We will have 20 beautiful wooden benches scattered around the 10 acre area for a park like feel that the guests can utilize nicely distant from one another for a breath of country air.
This way everyone can participate without being worried that they are exposing themselves or their loved ones too quickly.
How far in advance do clients need to book?
We are accepting bookings now through the end of the year, even into next year if a client desires, as dates are available. We would like to begin small events in mid May/ June provided all regulations continue to flatten out and remain open.
What are the options for meal boxes?
We will have a menu that the client can select from when planning their event, much like they normally would. We will have a vegetarian/vegan option available and continue to use our fresh onsite grilling that we are known for. We want to make it simple for our guests and super tasty.
Although things are looking really different these days, we applaud Pearl Snap Cuisine for creating a special way for people to still celebrate the big moments, while staying safe. Cheers!
