In collaboration with swissnex San Francisco.

Switzerland and Texas are only 40 degrees apart. Reality is sometimes just a question of how you look at it. Come in and enter our wonder cabinet at the local Austin Cenote garden bar. Transmii, the interaction and augmented reality studio based in Geneva, invite you on a trip to the Switzerland hidden behind Texas. Dance to San Francisco DJ Josette Melchor from Gray Area and Swiss counterpart Oliver van der Miescher among the scent of Texan BBQ and Swiss raclette cheese melting our worlds together.

Mixing realities to celebrate a love story between Texas and Switzerland in a garden party. Join us at Cenote for food, drinks, virtual cow smell and music.

RSVP on Eventbrite for guaranteed entry (space is limited).
