Last week & this week is the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) festival here in Austin. It's a fabulous time to be an Austinite in that there are tons & tons of parties, lots of celebrities roaming around, and tons of live music everywhere you go. (Hence the Live Music Capital of the World!)
Last week was the movie & technology portion of Southby, this week is the music. Just to name a few celebrities that are here... Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Judd Apetow, Bruce Springsteen, Matthew McConaughey, etc. etc. etc.
The only downfall?! EVERYTHING in Austin is packed! Parking sucks, restaurant waits are FOREVER long, and downtown is unbelievably crowded! Luckily it's only 2 weeks every year, and thankfully this week it's beautiful weather (sunny & highs in the mid-80's).
One year this Momma will actually have to go to SXSW! (Yep lived here 13 years now and never been! Sad & crazy huh?!)
