  3. I am an austin native and my answers are as follows:

    1.) yes, i am taking the week off to stain my concrete floors. Feel free to stop by and lend a hand.

    2.) All of them. No need to rush over, there will be plenty of work all week.

    3.) I do.

    4.) Yeah, part of being a native i guess.

    5.) I did Final Cut support for awhile, but now mostly just make videos of my kid.

    You should go to The Salt Lick. I am vegan, and know dick about finding good bone to gnaw on, but everyone here swears by the place. I know Mike Doughty (NYC Musician) paid for an 80 dollar cab ride to get there and back. He is a avid fan of the place. Enjoy your stay in town!

  7. 1) Do you have an evening free while you’re at SXSW?
    Most likely.

    2) Which evening is it?
    Not sure yet. Still sifting through the events with friends that are going

    3) Do you like BBQ?
    Yup – last year I went to a BBQ place walking distance from the convention center (Iron something was the name) and it was good ol’ fashioned homestyle bbq….my vegeatarian friends didn’t approve….they aren’t coming this year.

    4) Will you have a car at SXSW?
    nope.

    5) Are you a video blogger or somehow involved in video media creation or distribution? (I need panelists)
    Sorta….probably not at the caliber your looking for.

    BTW we ‘sort of’ met at Northern Voice….chatting with Kris after his photography session. Email me if you want to BBQ together.

    5. I second Salt Lick. It is a bit of a drive 30-40 minutes outside of town, but definitely worth it. If you only want to drive 15 or so minutes from downtown go to the County Line. There is also a less formal (ie. no waiters) place called Rudys… most of the Rudys are in gas stations. Wife and I used to love that place, fast, they have tables and it is good food. If you need places that are must stops for breakfast while in town, please email me Robert – I lived in Austin for 6.5 years while I was in school and swimming there – know all the great stops.

  13. Retrocactus – the place you are thinking of is Iron Cactus downtown… there is also Stubbs (thanks for jogging my memory!) – Stubbs is known for their live music, but it has some good eats.

  16. Scott….it’s not the Iron Cactus….I know that bar quite well!

    The place I’m talking about is called Iron Works (http://www.ironworksbbq.com/ – thank you google).

    Not sure how it compares to the Salt Lick as I’ve never been…but I heard that was good too but it wasn’t walking distance and we were carless.

    Iron Works was pretty rustic and homestyle….and you can hit it for lunch during SXSW if you beat the rush of geeks.

  19. I’m in San Antonio (Austin’s pretty sister city to the South). Salt Lick is a great place. I’ll be in and out of Austin all during SxSW, not sure of my availablity. Twitter it! I’m only an hour south (~40 minutes if the weather let’s me take the motorcycle)

  22. Hi Robert,

    I’ll be all over that!

    Hey man, just moved from the Valley to Austin a few months ago and have been checking out ALL of the BBQ joints. I haven’t finished my tour yet, but soon after you get here, you have about 50 million recommendations to go to Salt Lick. The original one that is. The one that’s 30 minutes outside of town in a small town called Driftwood. (Everyone recommends against anything but the original, though there is at least one other one, which I happened to drive by today). So I went to the original, and it was way good (Much better than County Line, though the County Line is a hopp’n place. Rudy’s is also good if you want something fast… the atmosphere doesn’t match the food, unlike Salt Lick or County Line). So I have also been referred to Iron Works, for the bar. Haven’t been there yet. Let us know where you decide to go, and maybe we’ll crash your party:-) I would hit the Driftwood Salt Lick for an early dinner, and then head downtown to 6th Street for the night. It will be wild.

  25. Robert, I have a car and am planning on going to Salt Lick on Sunday night. I usually join some folks from Austin and some who come from Nashville on that evening. We go early as the wait can be long (but we take a — but very worth it. I can pack in some more folks in the car, I’m sure. More the merrier.

    3. Hells Yeah
    4. I could if I needed to

    5.
    I don’t but I’m good friends with the Excutive Producer and the Director from Hatchling Studios. They do all of their distribution on the web and have an animated short at SXSW Film. They don’t do video blogging specifically, but they have gained a lot of success through YouTube and their podcast. I’ll send you an e-mail with some details after I talk with them tomorrow.

  31. 1) Sadly I might not, but please post on what you decide. Other duties as assigned, as they say. I second the vote for Lockhart. Though evenings aren’t very good for out there, Kreuz’ closes at 8, though I heard that either Blacks or Smitty’s had started staying open later. Sams and Ben’s are very close, and even Iron Works is passable but will be swamped. I do also happen to have a car that will seat 5, 7 if folks want to squeeze in the back.

  34. This is the first time i am reading about sxsw. I tried to read about it at the site. But the site is not all that first-time-visitor friendly.:-(

    Could someone do a ‘sxsw in fifteen words’ for a common man like me?

  51. Robert-

    I live in Austin…and YES…if you have never been to the Salt Lick, you must go there. Do not be duped into the shorter drive to the Salt Lick on Loop 360, you MUST drive out to the original one in Driftwood, Texas. It is about 35 minutes from the Convention Center (without traffic, but is rare to not have traffic in Austin)…but well worth the experience.

    If you want a good hole in the wall BBQ place you have to go to Sam’s on East 12th Street. Not the safest neighborhood in town…but good food.

    Enjoy your visit to my fine city! I expect some good blog posts from you about what you encounter in this fun town.

  53. The fun thing about Salt Lick (not sure if someone mentioned it already) is that it’s in Buda, a dry county — so you “have to” bring your own cooler full of ice and beer. Dragging a cooler full of beer just adds to the great feel of the place.

    Completely unrelated — have you tried vlogging using a Nokia N93i? Check out http://www.myphonerocks.com... Decidedly and unapologetically pro-Nokia, but why not as he (too) works for the company. Still — have you tried it? What did you think?

  55. Hey if you need panelists, I’m game. Or are you looking for non-potechies?

    Also I love BBQ too. It’s one of my passions. I don’t know Austin or Texas BBQ very well, so pleas please please let me know when and where and I’ll be there. I have a good friend in Austin that is a big foodie and he would surely know the best places.

  63. Hey, Robert — I have a friend who moved to the south for the bbq. I am very envious of him. :-). The beer is good in the Northwest but the bbq does not match.

    I can get a car. Easy. I’ll drive. Heh. Saturday evening bbq? How good would that be? II’ll bring along the M-Audio micro-track. Love that little gem. Video creation, distribution? That’s what we are all about at SplashCast.

    See you at sxsw! Are you there Friday? Come and check out the panel I am moderating “The Real Story Behind Snakes On A Plane” Rumor is that the panelists will be “in character.” Free snakes at the door! Hey, what about “snakes on a bbq?” :-).

  65. I’ve heard about the Salt Lick for years, it’s supposed to be amazing – then again, I’ve heard ALL the BBQ in Austin is good!

    5) Sure, I work on the video side at http://www.imeem.com in business development – what is the panel topic?

  66. I live in Austin, have a car, and love the Salt Lick.

    I’m the leader of Social Media Club Austin, and I can help find a qualified video person for your panel. I already have someone in mind who would be great. E-mail me for specifics.

    1) Do you have an evening free while you’re at SXSW? — Yes

    3) Do you like BBQ? — I live in KC, so of course
    4) Will you have a car at SXSW? — No
    5) Are you a video blogger or somehow involved in video media creation or distribution? (I need panelists) — I’m debating if I should do a video blog while I’m at SXSW. I’ll be writing for Adrants and Shake Well Before Use

  71. Hi Robert:
    So far I’m free Saturday through Monday evenings.

    BBQ – Yum. Let’s definitely do barbeque. Just let me know when. I’m at the Hilton across from the Convention Center.
    Car – ‘fraid not.

    Video Blogger – Yes, with the unique perspective of a screencaster. I’d love to do a panel with you. We can talk about how fun it was to do the photowalking/photoshop shoot.

    Not sure of a barbeque place, but last year we went to a very cool outdoor beer and burger place called Hills Country Cafe, where I got to swoon over Kris Kristoferson up close. I think they’re having the Texas Heritage Music Association awards there on Sunday.

  73. Laura and I will be in Austin Thursday through Thursday. We might have a car. Would love BBQ but a 35 mile drive might be a stretch.

    Iron Works is very nice and walking distance from the convention center… It does get busy, though.

  76. Since everyone is hyped about Salt Lick and it sounds like there are a lot of free Sunday nights, how about a SXSW pilgrimage? 7:30 at Salt Lick? I’ll have a car. (and would look forward to meeting anyone who’s up for it…)

  80. Yes, any, yes, yes, no.

    As a local, my preferences in order are:

    Lockhart, TX: Black’s for sausage, Smitty’s for brisket, and Kreuz’ Market for the legend (the first two did it for me, so I’ve never managed to make it there.) It’s about a 45-60min drive and they close at 8pm. If you’re driving that long just to get to the Salt Lick, drive another 15 minutes or so – the BBQ in Lockhart is far superior.

    Ruby’s (29th & Guadalupe, north of the UT campus): Not to be confused with Rudy’s.

    Iron Works (1st/Cesar Chavez & Red River)

    Green Mesquite (S. Lamar & Barton Springs Rd.)

    Artz Rib House (S. Lamar)

    Salt Lick (Driftwood, TX) or Salt Lick 360 (Loop 360 just south of the bridge) if you want a cloth napkin.

    Those who prefer vegetables or need a break from BBQ are directed to Casa de Luz (buried on Toomey just north of Barton Springs Rd.) It’s macrobiotic but they do a great job.

  86. This is the first time i am reading about sxsw. I tried to read about it at the site. But the site is not all that first-time-visitor friendly.:-(

    Could someone do a ’sxsw in fifteen words’ for a common man like me?
