The Waller Creek Is For Lovers Action And Adventure Society

Oh my goodness: Waller Creek Is For Lots Of People Making An Amazing Cake Of Waller Creek.

And Brainstorming And Then Eating The Cake Too.

Oh my goodness. This afternoon was one the most amazing design-build adventures I’ve ever been a part of. Mind you, it was cake and we didn’t get to do any sort of ‘built’ imagining of possibility on the cake itself but:

1.The number of people who participated (over 100)

2.The large number of people (close to 100) who were unwittingly recruited to spread the Waller Creek word (through the brainstorm nametag for cake swap program).

3.The number of people of all ages who worked on the cake at the same time (almost 25), transforming twelve chocolate cakes into a wonderfully tasty and surprisingly beautiful creation.

……..was absolutely outstanding…….and tasty.

A favorite quote by the founder of the Garden Posse (www.gardenposse.blogspot.com/)-

‘So much cake & fun @publicworkshop Waller Creek topographical cake event. My mind has opened to the wonders of combining activism & baking.’

A more detailed report and incredible images will follow shortly.

Waller Creek Is For Making A Giant Topographical Cake Of Waller Creek And Then Eating It.

Posted in Activities & Adventures In Waller Creek by Admin on November 20, 2009

A six foot long Betty Crocker version of Waller Creek? (not the tiny garden pictured here-kid’s stuff).

That’s right, six feet long.

Have we lost our minds? Probably.

An impossible feat? Maybe but we’re going to have a mighty fine time trying.

That’s right ladies and gents, as part of the East Austin Studio Tours, this Sunday the Waller Creek Is For Lovers Action And Adventure Society will be temporarily relocating to the Hope Farmer’s Market where we will be making a much tastier version of Waller Creek. That’s right, we’re going to celebrate Waller Creek by baking it and then eating it. (more…)

Waller Creek Is For Beasts And Diorama Making that challenges people’s perceptions of what happens in Waller Creek, AND gets them to look a bit closer at all of the fantastic things found in the Creek. Here are some more pictures from last weekend’s endeavors.

Dominoes and Talking Smack? Changing a place by talking about someone’s mom and playing games? What could be better on a Sunday afternoon at a brand spanking new time (4 pm) in a shiny new (as in we haven’t tried it) domino-themed place?

Dust off your best momma jokes, bone up on your dot counting and practice your throw so you don’t embarrass you and your kin. Thenhead on down to the fantastically strange domino shaped islands right smack dab in the Creek, just north of the Sixth Street bridge over Waller Creek (just east of Sixth and Red River). (more…)

Finding Beasts Along the Creek

Strange and mysterious beasts were seen last Saturday along the creek.  Dinosaurs, superheros – the creek showed a side of itself we didn’t know was there.

What’s hiding in your drainpipe?

I don’t know what you were planning on bringing today but this submission by Kelley makes me think the Waller Creek Is For Lovers Action And Adventure Society might need to get it together and make another trophy. Kelley was quite apologetic about the lack of the requisite two sides to the domino cookies but has promised to fix her grievous error for the rescheduled event. (more…)

Waller Creek is for Dominoes and Talking Smack!

dominoes_bwDominoes and Talking Smack? What could be better on a Sunday morning?

Head on down to the north end of the UT Tennis Courts on Trinity Street (between the creek and the courts, by the bridge) for fabulous company, and good food.  Get ready to do your best grumpy old man, Oscar Madison impersonation as we throw down the dominoes and dish dirt.

What should I bring? Your Waller Creek Explorer Pack including:

  • A dish to share,
  • A chair,
  • A table if you dare,
  • An extra set of dominoes if you care

And a Waller Creek tall tale to share.

….. All events come from ideas we dream up while playing in, on, around, and under the Creek. We applaud the unapologetically playful, we approve of the fantastically fantastical and we honor the happily hair-brained. We love it all, bring it!
