off we go

For the next week I’ll be the fabulous Austin, Texas for SXSW.

I am SO EXCITED. It’s our first time going to SXSW and I’ve only heard great things. We’re going to see so many films, which is basically my dream week. Oh also, we’re staying in an airstream, which is pretty much the coolest.

We’ve only been to Austin once before, and we had so much fun. I hope we have time to do some exploring in the city. Sadly the weather forecast looks rainy the whole time, but that’s not getting me down.

Do you have any favorite places in Austin? I haven’t done any planning (oops!) so I’d gladly take suggestions for places to eat or shops I can’t miss.

    I trust Garden and Gun for all things, even those that don’t apply in the northeast. Here’s their Austin city guide:

    This lovely gal Kristen who I’ve been working with through Earth Balance just opened up an all vegan bakery in Austin. Check it out, eat something yummy and tell her Sharon from MJR says hi!

    Have fun! I’ve been aching to go back and visit Austin. My husband and I lived there for about 3 years but haven’t gone back in far too long! SXSW is the best time to visit! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures.

    At least you are prepared: it is raining cats and dogs! But no fear, everyone is bravely still out and about for SXSW.

    The super cool and stylish Alyson Fox wrote the Austin guide for Design Sponge, and she is spot on:

    Don’t miss Uncommon Objects, Stag, and Mercury Design, all of which are right down town.

    Have a great time!

    You should check out the tofu scramble from Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse, it does not disappoint. Also Hey Cupcake! always has vegan cupcake choices that are very good. One other place is Arlo’s food truck that has excellent vegan bacon cheeseburgers. Have fun! For more ideas…
