Day three at SXSW is now in the books. We ventured into another activation but didn’t have quite the same luck that we did at Westworld on day one. However, some great friends, good food and interesting sessions more than made up for it.
We cancelled a fancy dinner reservation because we felt like it was time for some good old-fashioned Tex-Mex. We weren’t disappointed at Matt’s El Rancho and their famous Bob Armstrong Dip.
There were plenty of drinks of the adult variety too, but for our money the clear winner was this delicious cappuccino from Annie’s on Sunday morning.
Tweets of the day of the year of the millennium:
#ReadyPlayerOne is classic Spielberg fun! What a blast, can't wait to see it again. Rewards repeat viewings. Tons of great references, visuals and heart. So kick ass it blew the speakers!

“No you cannot come into Intsagram’s activation but you can have this book” is not exactly the response we were hoping for on Rainey Street.
On the other hand, Smash Mallow’s may be the most “SXSW” food of all time.
Through the lens:
Dropbox’s art-themed activation.
The Peru house spiced up the early evening with a traditional dance that included a live snake (in the hands of the woman in the middle).
We made sure to check out the Ready Player One activation but had to bail on the virtual reality centerpiece because the line got too long. Looking at this poor guy captured in his VR mask maybe that was a good thing.
