Texas on the Hudson

More than 150 people packed the Jazz Standard in New York earlier this month for an invitation-only party to kick off the Saveur Texas Hill Country Wine & Food Festival to be held April 2-6 in Austin, Texas. The crowd, comprised of clients of the magazine, journalists and a few TV personalities, enjoyed Texas beef, Texas oysters, Texas wine, Texas vodka and Texas music. Shown here are (l. to r.) Terry Snow, CEO of World Publications, Terry Wallace, Saveur‘s event marketing director; Martin Walker, consultant; and Leslie Brecken, marketing director, Saveur.
