In my 2014 review of Olamaie, I said the refined Southern restaurant looks like it could be plucked from the grounds of Augusta National. Fitting then that the restaurant from chefs Michael Fojtasek and Grae Nonas would host a viewing party of the final round of The Masters on Sunday, April 10.

The genteel tournament is famous for its Southern food (and the ridiculously low prices), such as pimento cheese sandwiches and egg salad sandwiches. The Olamaie chefs, named Best New Chefs in America by Food & Wine magazine last year, will serve a menu that nods to those traditions, in addition to the restaurant’s famous biscuits and more.

The party runs from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, with tickets costing $25. That ticket will get you snacks and one free cocktail, like a mint julep or punch, and the chance to see if University of Texas alumnus Jordan Spieth can repeat as Masters champion. The restaurant will offer a cash bar and have TVs set up on the porch and inside the restaurant. A portion of each ticket will benefit the Butler Park Pitch & Putt Golf Association, a family-owned nine-hole golf course near Lady Bird Lake.

Tickets are available here.
