I almost had a heart attack this morning! They couldn’t find my computer at the airport baggage services desk – turned out it was stored in a different area but that took 30 minutes to figure out. Once Maggie Mac and I were reunited, we stopped by the Convention Center to pick up our SXSW bags/badges…
…then headed to meet some of the Surrogate Valentine crew for breakfast!
Kerbey Lane Cafe has a few locations – this is the original.
There’s a wait, but free wi-fi!
Sooooo many options. Lots of vegan-friendly items as well!
A number of readers recommended their pancakes. I couldn’t decide between pumpkin (the seasonal specialty) or gingerbread
The waitress suggested a short stack of both <—Genius
I shared with Abe. Here’s the Migas + verde sauce:
Although the eggs/rice/beans rocked, the pancakes were disappointing (particularly the gingerbread). They were lukewarm and needed a lot of syrup (which wasn’t very good, either).
We spent the rest of the afternoon napping and shopping (there’s a mall within walking distance of my hotel!). Tonight, we start SXSW-ing! Christy’s movie, “Sound of My Voice,” is playing so I want to try to see that. There’s also Tech Munch (a food blogger conference) going on in Austin, but I think I may have to skip the opening party and focus on one festival at a time.
Oh yeah – and my podcast interview with Ready, Set, Wife is live! I don’t have time to listen to it right now, but if you do, lemme know how it turned out!!!
