Are you marking off days on your ICal yet? More must-have items to get you in the mood:
A scandalous suggestion! You probably shouldn’t introduce your SXSLover to many of your friends, if only because you might not know their last name (unless you two meet while wearing badges!). But, you two will probably dance together until the stage falls down at the one of the sponsored parties while eating your fill of free tacos creating a fond memory while getting a little bruised. Only a few things to remember: don’t prolong the relationship post-festival, avoid the candid party photographers who might capture an embarrassing moment, and when the cheap vodka stops running through your veins, it’s a sign your love needs to fade. Plus, your roommate will eventually be upset that some hairy dude keeps eating all the cereal.
Austin weather changes in a flash. It can be a beautiful, 75 degree, jorts-wearing day — the next day, there’s an inch of “snow” on the ground causing the entire city to stop moving. Texas is blessed with an almost ideal climate come March, you never know if rain/sleet/snow/hail/wind might come to ruin your day. Because you’re not as dedicated as our mail service, bring a jacket (a black leather one, duh).
Remember to down some oatmeal to help your body recover quickly come morning. Loading up on energy bars (ideally free from some promotional effort), Emergen-C, vitamins, drinking lots of water, and eating tacos (not to worry, an entire taco post is in the works) all will help you party through the pain. The best cure: wake up early enough to get yourself some migas at Cisco’s Restaurant (1511 E 6th St).
