YES, IT MIGHT RAIN. I'LL BE HEADING OVER RAIN OR SHINE.
Every year, there are serious gaps of interest in South by Southwest's program. Turn that to your advantage, and come see parts of Austin away from downtown.
South Congress is a great neighborhood, with food, shopping, coffee, and art to enjoy. Let's break from the madness for a tour of what it has to offer.
Shopping at Blackmail (great clothes), Uncommon Objects (tchotchkes galore), and other quirky delights
Ice cream at Amy's (they have flavors with LIQUOR in them!)
Coffee at Jo's
Art at Yard Dog
It's about a mile south of the convention center, and there are free buses we can take to get there. Find me if you're interested!

My talk is Sunday at 3:30, so I need to prep and such. I had Amy's down for Monday. Mmmmexican vanilla...
very likely will come for that
and i'm staying on south congress. let me remind everyone that the san jose at dusk is the most sublime place in the universe. this won't be our only wander!
alas -- i don't get in until later that afternoon; catch up with you fine folks in the evening?
Agreed on the San Jose at dusk. Too bad you have to book a year in advance!
Anyway, I'm down for it...
the pizza at homeslice is AWESOME. I'm there!
