The scoop on what to drink, eat, and do this year at SXSW

Rather than stroll 6th Street in a novelty cowboy hat you paid way too much for, make your SXSW experience both weird and awesome with our visitor's guide. It'll steer you to must-try BBQ from a third-generation pitmaster, classy drinking dens for escaping the crowds, after-hours Mexican, and an Airstream where you can score the only thing more addicting than drugs: vulgarly named fried chicken & honey butter donuts!
