I had the best time at the fest this year. Our official talk went great and I got to take Laura from Vegansaurus to all my favorite spots in town. I bet we turned hundreds of people vegan…. maybe not all that day but perhaps it planted a seed for some.
I ate and drank like I was on vacation. Which I guess I kind of was since I had the week off from work.
I got to go to a vegan barbecue party put on by Moby at Cheer Up Charlies
And finally try the Red Rabbit Donut Cooperative‘s donuts at the Compassion Over Killing Bakesale at the Brooklyn Vegan Day party, which was really fun.
I made peanut butter cocopuff treats, well I guess technically they were coco “blast” treats. The recipe was from Kittie and I will make them again for sure.
also people watching, of course, was really fun
I also saw a lady walking her pig outside of the Alamo Drafthouse and yelled at her until she stopped so I could pet it and take a picture. Please note, if you are going to walk by me with a little piglet you better not be in a hurry.
Now I am so tired from 10 days of music, films, parties, free drinks, and comedy that it is a real struggle to be back at work. I am so jealous of McPuppenstein who is probably doing this as I type this.
I love Austin Texas, I feel so lucky I get to live here.
Ha! I have a Beagle mutt named Harry who looks very much like Sir. McPuppenstein. He’s probably doing the exact same thing right about now on our couch.
I am so pleased for your awesome SXSW experience and jealous that I didn’t get to have it myself! I want all that food and that piggie too. I told Red that one year we’ll have to make plans to 1) visit Austin and 2) do SXSW.
So where is that mustache ride thing?! That’s crazy looking! I know some folks that would like to see that thing.
Betty it is at Cheer Up Charlies, the Vegan Bar on east 5th.
Matt sent me a link to your round-up via Austinist. Your food looks delicious as usual.
Thanks Molly! And thanks for the tip about the Bouldin bacon, I love it!
So much greatness!
