JwooSunday essentially filled itself out, without effort. TV actors, Bieber, brunch, pink overalls and bags of food being thrown at us. That sounds about right for SXSWi.

NomNom: Moonshine brunch. Grits, jalapeno sausage, bread pudding, migas, and more. Enough said.

Libations: Big Boulder threw their second “Bourbon and Boots” event, which included a drink called The Bootstrapper. Bulleit Bourbon, lime juice, sweet vermouth and Grand Marnier, served chilled. Strap ‘em up!

Celebrity-ish Sighting: Being the Commissioner of his own fantasy football league, Jon was more than excited to run into Mark Duplass from The League at the Samsung Blogger Lounge.

Grab Bag: If you’re at an event as big as South By and you see a small guy walking swiftly with a big guy behind him flashing lights in people’s eyes, apparently its likely a celebrity. We were passed by Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez while walking on Rainey Street.

photoFree Stuff Rules: When you leave the hotel in the morning and a bus rolls by with people throwing Whataburger breakfast tacos and sunglasses at you, you know its going to be a good day.

Overheard: “This is the most unflattering outfit I’ve ever worn.” – A random street team member in pink Dickies overalls.
