It was the Friday night that the Foodie Girls had been waiting for! Elizabeth Gilbert, author of best-seller Eat, Pray, Love came to Austin's historic Paramount Theatre. The evening with Elizabeth was filled with stories, conversation with her fans and a book signing. Seeing as Elizabeth is a true food enthusiast, we thought it fitting to bring her one of Austin's tastiest treats, a Red Velvet Cupcake from Hey Cupcake!
We were nearly beside ourselves when the first thing she said when she took stage was "Austin is the coolest city ever, you people actually have trailers on the side of the road with cupcakes on them! I love this place!" We knew we were going to be a hit!
It was such a pleasure to listen to Elizabeth speak. She is a true storyteller by nature and speaks her truth with bravery and humor.
After begging us to take a photo with her, we agreed. She was excited to receive the cupcake and was nice enough to answer a few questions:
FG: So, Liz, how do you know the best places to eat in Austin?
EG: Foodie Girls.
FG: Lizzy, what's been your favorite part of your Austin trip so far?
EG: Meeting the Foodie Girls.
FG: Oh, Liz.
EG: (laughs) You girls are the best!
You heard it here first, Elizabeth Gilbert LOVES the Foodie Girls.
*Look for Elizabeth Gilbert's new book Committed out in December.
