Weekly Events

Tuesdays - Bitcoin and Coffee - 8:00AM @ The Meteor, Austin

Tuesdays - Bitcoin and Wine - 5:30PM @ The Meteor, Austin

The Meteor was founded by two friends who became accidental business partners: Doug Zell, the founder of Intelligentsia Coffee, and Chris St. Peter, a former attorney. Both are avid cyclists. Their vision began with a desire to create a beautiful environment that combines all the things they love under one roof: delicious ingredient-driven food, thoughtfully chosen wine, carefully prepared coffee, and, of course, bicycles. Perhaps more importantly, they hoped to build a community that enjoyed these same pursuits. Thus our motto was born: Espresso | Champagne | Chain Lube
