    Flying into Austin tomorrow for SXSW. I will be there early tomorrow with time to kill before the show starts
    Friday. Any suggestions? Also during the conference any cool local spots?

    start drinking early and heavily and it will lessen the suck of being in Texas

    Texas women always act shy until they get liquored up. Get someone to drive you to New Braunfels for Barbeque. Do not go there alone. Don't talk to anyone you don't have too....

    Buy a trail camera and strap it to your chest and walk down the street. Watch the illegals scatter.

    The best thing to do *any* time you find yourself in Texas is to leave as quickly as possible.

    I think some of you do not like to have fun. The town is one big party during sxsw with unlimited free drinks.

    Go to Mellow Johnny's. Don't go through the front door though, go around back, knock on the delivery door and ask for the special performance "supplements".

    County Line is terrible.

    Rudy's is my top choice.
