With the iconic interactive, film, and music festival kicking off tomorrow, it’s going to be a crazy hot mess of a Texan city for the next couple of weeks. Having attended last year, I say this with confidence, and for all you booking your last-minute travels to Austin, I give you fair warning to not get overwhelmed.
Rather, keep calm and nom on to some of my favorite spots to eat at as you explore and to drink at while you network. Note that this list doesn’t include brisket or barbecue because I assume you will be eating Read more
So confession: I’ve never actually been in San Francisco for St. Patrick’s Day.
