SXSW Food Lovers Guide
SXSW requires lots of stamina and that means lots of carbs to keep you going. Visit Sugar Mama's Backshop on S. 1st street for some of the best cupcakes and other baked goodies in town. Bring a few back into downtown and you'll make all sorts of new friends.
For a quiet dinner with clients or friends, head just a bit south of downtown Austin on S. 1st street to Lenoir Austin. The 3-course dinner for $30 is a steal and the food swoon-worthy. Tell Todd and Jessica I said hi! (Photo by @Marshall Wright)
Lucky's Fried Chicken, just a little South of Downtown Austin, is hosting Lucy’s South By South Austin Fried Chicken Revival, a down-home extravaganza from March 14 to March 18. Enjoy band, fried chicken, grilled oysters, and more daily from 12-6pm.

Second Bar + Kitchen at the corner of 2nd and Congress in Austin is the perfect place for nibbles and drinks or a dinner with the SXSW crew. The weather should be perfect for hanging out on the patio or try the upstairs balcony that's covered in lush astroturf.
Craving pizza? Around 6th Street while in Austin? Look no further than Backspace for wood-fired pizza.
