Things to see, things we saw. In Austin, there’s always something to do.

Mere hours linger between now and the start of SXSW 2013, and the parties just keep rolling in. Don’t forget to stay on top of those music RSVPs while you’re out drinking for free on some tech company’s dime! Also: drink water, wear comfy shoes, get some rest, eat a salad, and call your mom.

Be sure to check out Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, and Volume 4 of our News and Party lists, as well as our upcoming MEGA PARTY LIST by day (one for Interactive, one for Music).


By now, you know that little Miss Grumpy cat herself, Tardar Sauce, is coming to SXSW. If you don’t care, you’re dead inside.

The South Bites lineup has been announced. This food trailer park, cultivated by Paul Qui, features Qui’s top choices (including East Sid King, naturally), as well as many Austin faves like Hey Cupcake! and Chi’lantro. There will also be a full bar and mural artist on site, and the park will be open March 8th-16th from 11:30am-2:30pm and is open to the public. Probably the weirdest part of the park, though is the odd branding that matches popular Peached Tortilla with NBC’s Hannibal. I’d suggest double checking the ingredients before ordering anything, especially if it comes with a side of fava beans and a nice Chianti. Find the South Bites park on the corner of Driskill and Rainey.

The list of celebrities coming to Austin for our little festival just keeps growing and growing. ATX Gossip is keeping a running tally, and be sure to follow Fancy Pants during SXSW to read about celebrity spottings and to share yours. @FancyPantsATX

Cap Metro makes navigating the traffic madness a little easier with this guide for locals and visitors, alike.

Another SXSW infographic, this time from the Ketner Group. I dig this one.

As if there was anything left that SXSW doesn’t do, next year they’re putting out a cookbook!

Oh snap. It’s the SXSW Taco Map. Also: Taco Infographic.

Seeing way too many of these $$$ in SX lineups this year? Our Michael Bridgett shares how he feels about it.

Social media does some social good, as Adobe hosts Conversation for a Cause, a fundraiser for Stem to Steam.
