Days one and two at SXSW were as fabulous and weird as ever. Two dinners, one very, very long and one wonderfully quick, a session or two (OK, just one) and a trip to the old West(world) got us immersed in everything Interactive all over again.
Pirhana Sushi delivered a fantastic meal in under 40 minutes (which was fantastic since we didn’t sit down until 9:00 p.m.).
Whiskey is era-appropriate, right?

An unplanned part of the Westworld experience was the opportunity to “live through” that famous Austin traffic as we were bussed thirty minutes outside of town.

We got in before Tapper did!
The Westworld experience gifted us these hats as we entered the “park.” Most people were able to choose between white and black but we were handed these without the opportunity to select. Does this mean we’re both evil???
Through the lens:
Serenity in Austin as the sessions wrap for the day…
Westworld’s player piano IRL.
Austin’s architecture is on point.
Looks like someone added some millennials to their campaign this year…
