    Wow … I’m tired after just reading that post! πŸ˜‰ But it looked like so much fun!! I think the bacon waffle cone and that unique ice cream sandwich would have been my favorites!! πŸ™‚

    I am drooling over nearly every single food item in this post. Bacon waffle cones?! Ice cream sandwiches and cupcakes and empanadas?! I clearly need to get to Austin, if only to eat.

      I was just thinking the same thing. Thank goodness the hubs and I have plane tickets to Vegas next week for an interview he has–hopefully we will have some options that are a little more fun and unique than some of the things we find here in ND! πŸ˜‰

    It looks like it was an awesome day, and the food looks fantastic. I’ve only ever eaten out of a food truck a few times in my life.

    I wish we had more fun places to eat here in North Dakota! People aren’t quick to embrace very “different” food ideas around here, although it’s getting better in some of the bigger cities (big here still means really small anywhere else lol).

    Although I can’t imagine too many people saying no to cones filled with bacon!!

    Looks like an awesome day and tons of cool eats! Although I have to be honest they don’t look like they’re too good about serving the gluten free crowd, I don’t think there’s much that you showed that I could have eaten! Haha but I guess it’s Texas!

    Do they allow just anyone in practically to those places if you’re in the SXSW area? Or are you only able to get in because you are part of the Chevy thing?

    Oh my gosh, you had SUCH an adventure yesterday! I’m sad I missed out on all this stuff but I agree — sometimes it’s better to party hop alone. So jealous of your Foursquare tee btw…hoping to get one today!

    Anyway you have inspired me to hit the ground today and get as much free food/drink/swag as I can! Currently waiting for the Skype party to keep it going. πŸ™‚

    Looks awesome…I’d absolutely love party hopping and it seems like you’re getting the most of your time there! Someone else may be able to answer me, but what exactly is the point of sxsw? Like, what is it exactly? Who attends? For some reason I thought it was a bonnaroo type event with lots of musicians. Guessing I’m off on this….. Clarification?

      Laura, SXSW is a massive conference that’s generally in three parts — music, film, and interactive. SXSWi is over today, but film events go on until 3/17 and music runs tomorrow through Saturday.

      You’ll find all kinds of people going, depending on who they are, what they do, and what kind of badge they get — film is basically a film festival, so you can imagine who it attracts. Music is not so much a Bonnaroo type festival as a massive industry and indie showcase that takes over most of the city. All three parts have their own keynotes, conference sessions and expos, in addition to the parties/events/shows/films.

    I had left you a comment, but I guess with our bad internet connection it never went through (that sort of thing tends to happen when you’re working from an RV). Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out there about our sock puppet campaign to raise money for the National Literacy Trust. I’m really glad you enjoyed the party!

    P.S. I had one of those cookie ice cream sandwiches (one potato chip and butterscotch cookie and one snickerdoodle with the brown butter and bacon ice cream) and it was insanely delicious. I’m still having dreams about it.
