SATURDAY, 3/15 from noon to 4pm -> We just sprang forward and Summer’s around the corner, what better way to get ready for it than a special edition Austin Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends during SXSW. We’ll be teaming back up with world renowned BBQ spot, La Barbecue (recently named one of the country’s best new restaurants by GQ Magazine, and also the home of the 2014 SX Solution Showcase later in the day), one of our favorite music blogs/sites, Potholes In My Blog, the homies at Acrylick and nationally acclaimed Leann Mueller Photography company to build on last yearâ€™s unforgettable SX704 Solution Showcase and feature even more amazing talent from around the US. To sweeten the deal, we’ve also got free beer all day with no cover, RSVPs or wristbands required to join us. With that said, take a look at the awesome lineup super dope DJs joining me for the party:
While Austinâ€™s known for BBQ and there are many exceptional establishments in town, La Barbecue has a more renowned pedigree and pitboss than almost any spot in Texas (the yelp reviews explain things well here) and is generally considered to run neck and neck with Franklinâ€™s (the one from the current Mastercard commercial with Chef Nobu) for the #1 spot in the Austin/regional BBQ hierarchy. Hereâ€™s a little more about La Barbecue:
â€œAfter one bite, I was convinced this is the best brisket in existence.â€ â€“ AustinFoodstyle.com.
â€œHis name may not (yet) carry the same level of recognition as Aaron Franklin or John Mueller, but make no mistake, John Lewis makes some of the best barbecue not just in Austin but in the state of Texas. From his massive handcrafted smoker on South First Street, Lewis produces tender, subtly smoky brisket with a bark that doesnâ€™t get carried away with its bite. And his pulled pork has no peer in town.â€ – Austin360.com
P.S. If you came out to last yearâ€™s SX704 Solution Showcase event or La Barbecue before, please note that they’ve recently moved locations & theyâ€™re now much more conveniently located on 1200 E 6th St, right around the corner from the Fader Fort.
