If pretending to be a real-life gingerbread man is on your holiday to-do list, you’re in luck.
According to Eater Austin, the Westin Austin Downtown has constructed a huge house made of gingerbread and royal icing (with a little bit of wood, too, so don’t try to take a big bite).
If you’d like to dine in the house, you can reserve it online for parties of up to seven people, and 10 percent of the food and beverage sales will be donated to Back on My Feet Austin, a running program that helps fight homelessness. It’s on display at the hotel until the end of December.
