Since 2013 Keith Kreeger Studios has hosted Make. Eat. Drink. at locations around Austin including Franklin Barbecue, Hotel Saint Cecilia, Canopy Artist Studios and Justine’s Secret House. Notable chefs from Austin and beyond have always brought a one-of-a-kind dining experience to our guests.
A portion of all proceeds from Make. Eat. Drink. benefit local non-profits,
Make. Eat. Drink. is first and foremost a creative dialogue between artists and chefs. Each course pairs creative people from different disciplines together with the goal being that the food and the objects are a collaboration from start to finish which create a one of a kind experience.

"You've had dinner with Keith Kreeger, even if you didn't realize it. Well, you've have dinner with his work, at least. The Austin-based artist's ceramics can be found at several of Austin's best restaurants, as well as top restaurants around the country...."
"Austin's close-knit culinary community is accustomed to dinners where chefs collaborate with winemakers, craft brewers, or distillers, but the Make. Eat. Drink. dinner is a creative shift. Five years ago, respected local ceramic artists Keith Kreeger and Ryan McKerley came up with the idea where potters and chefs would work together to raise money for Big Medium, the local nonprofit responsible for the annual East Austin Studio Tour. Now the dinner is one of the hottest tickets in town– selling out in about 48 hours."
"Perhaps the toughest ticket to snag on November 21 was a seat at the Make. Eat. Drink table, a collaborative dinner party held at Canopy in East Austin. An event months in the making, the party was a celebration of the fine line between art and food."
