Saturday was packed full of great sessions, so getting out and about was limited. Despite the rain, we still managed to get out and see quite a bit on day 2 of SXSWi:
NomNom: Jon stopped by the Driskill Hotel for a late lunch and ran across what he is calling the best brussels sprouts on the planet. I don’t doubt him.
Libations: We stopped by Frank once again for happy hour, and you honestly can’t beat their signature cocktail list. If you go, try the Kentucky Peach or the Dirty South.
Grab Bag: The “gummy bear brat” is easily the strangest menu item we’ve seen to date.
Free Stuff Rules: Simple concept, but brands who scrambled to create and give out free umbrella swag are timely, and super smart.
Overheard: “Daylight Savings is the worst concept ever.” – Everyone at SXSW
Through the Lens: An art installation made completely out of packaging tape at an establishment on Rainey Street.
Number of Steps Taken: 15,750
Hours of Sleep: Jim: 5. Jon: 4.5.
Caffeinated Beverages Consumed: Jim: 4. Jon: 6 .
