Helmed by a husband-and-wife team of seasoned shutterbugs, CherryBones Photography captures memorable moments with a stylistic, vintage flair. A three-hour CherryBones photo-booth rental lets party planners reap a windfall of fun, formal photos at weddings or effortlessly steal dozens of souls dressed in business-casual at office parties. One of CherryBones’s estimable imagists accompanies the booth, zooming in for close-up shots of lovey-dovey duos, expertly cropping pin-ups of photogenic foursomes, and manipulating space-time to capture festive wide shots of the entire House of Representatives. CherryBones can deliver the photo booth to any location in the greater Austin area, and a copy of all two-dimensional memory bytes will be made available to customers on a DVD as well as in an online gallery that will be posted after the event.
Leading the charge in Los Vaqueros' two area restaurants, Chef Cisneros imparts his third-generation culinary expertise to crafting flavorful Tex-Mex dishes from a stash of local poultry, fruits, and fresh veggies. At the flagship Fort Worth location, set within a former warehouse, a flight of yellow steps leads through a leafy archway into a lively dining room filled with vintage cowbells, tin signs, and Air Jordan horseshoes. The Weatherford location sits within Crown Valley Golf Club, where patrons dine on enchiladas, tacos, and burritos as wild golf balls cheep from their perches on the windowsills.
Since its origins as a converted parking garage, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its auditoriums, even gaining a following among Hollywood legends; Quentin Tarantino has been known to host five-day movie marathons at Alamo. The theater has earned that reputation by making moviegoing a personal experience, from the menu of handcrafted snacks and locally brewed beer to the completely ad-free presentations before shows. A long table stretches in front of every row of seats, enabling servers to unobtrusively pick up written food and drink orders throughout each screening. The staff enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy by kicking out any offenders, falling just short of yanking them from their seats with a giant's shepherd's crook.
Both first-run blockbusters and classics are projected onto Alamo's silver screens in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Meanwhile, surround speakers immerse audiences in the cinematic soundscape, whether they're seated in one of the expansive theaters afforded to blockbuster reels or the more intimate spaces reserved for indie films wound around tiny bobbins. Despite Alamo's vow of silence, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and actors, directors, and other celebrities often attend special screenings to lead in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have led to acclaim for Alamo from publications such as Entertainment Weekly, which called it “one of America's most fanatically unique moviegoing experiences,” and Wired, which opined that it "might just be the coolest movie theater in the world."
