I landed in the heart of SXSW on Tuesday morning and have been in a whirlwind of music mayhem, documentary films, and more food trucks than I know what to do with. For those of you that might not be familiar with SXSW, it’s a two week long music/film/interactive festival filled with tech geeks and hipster chic.
So where’s the first place I headed to when I got in? A charity bar of course.
The White House is said to be America’s first charity bar and basically you drink to your heart’s content and instead of paying for each drink, you make a donation. You can donate to the Austin Humane Society, Special Olympics of Texas, Austin Symphony Orchestra, and a ton more. On the same block of Rainey Street as The White House, you will notice several old bungalows turned bars. It’s like having a cocktail in your living room.
Turn the corner and you’re encircled in food truck heaven. Do you go airstream trailer turned cupcake palace? I think so.
If you have any suggestions for New Orleans must-sees please send them my way.
