SXSW 2014: Friday (3/14/2014)

SXSW 2014: Friday (3/14/2014)

We began our day with some amazing crêpes from Café Crêpe. This native Texan delicacy gave us enough much-needed energy to make it to the College Buyers/College Radio Peer Meet Up in the convention center. There we had the opportunity to share ideas with college radio affiliates from around the country. I personally had the chance to meet the Student Union president of Syracuse University and Dakota Gartner. Mr. Gartner has worked to...

SXSW 2014: Thursday (3/13/2014)

Thursday began a little later than anticipated, but the day was no less jam-packed than any of the others. When we finally got downtown courtesy of the SXSW shuttle, Pam and Clare picked up some food (Chi’Lantro again, if I’m not mistaken) while Ryan and I took care of some business in the convention center. On Wednesday, we all entered a raffle only eligible for badge holders to win tickets to see Lady Gaga; Ryan and I were the lucky...

SXSW 2014: Wednesday (3/12/2014)

Our second full day at SXSW started out exactly like the first: with an hour long wait for the bus (this bus was supposed to run “at least once an hour” – did we always walk down at exactly the wrong time?) and a trip to Chi’Lantro. I was skeptical about their Kimchi Fries at first but after three straight days of them as my breakfast I think it’s safe to say I was proved wrong. This food truck was just one star in the vast...

SXSW 2014: Tuesday (3/11/2014)

On Tuesday, the first thing we did after we waited for an hour for the SXSW shuttle was the most important thing of any SXSW trip: getting Kimchi Fries and/or tacos from Chi’Lantro food truck.   Next, we did the next most important thing: picking up our badges! Luckily, the line was short and it was an easy peasy process. With the badge, we received a free SXSW tote bag, with information about the conference and festival...
