So for the second year in a row I've attended Rachael Ray's Party at South by Southwest. I'm not super big into SXSW, but this party is off the chain (yes, I just said that!) First of all, it's FREE! Free awesome music, free delicious food, and free drinks! Can things get much better than that? Check out the lineup above. The last band, She & Him, was freaking awesome! If you don't know the lead singer you might remember her when she was in Elf :) and had a great voice in that movie too! I had an awesome day with one of my greatest friends, Jaclyn. Despite the fact that it was 40 degrees all day it really was an awesome day. I will admit that I was a little starstruck when I saw Rachael Ray so many times up close. She was in line next to me in the bathroom! Ha! I don't have a picture with her because she was not doing any sort of that stuff and she limited her talking to fans too. I think it would have been too overwhelming otherwise. The event was held at Stubb's and there easily over 1000 people there. Here she is with her hubby who is in the band, The Cringe.
As far as food went it was so good yet again! On the menu were veggie roll up tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken quesadillas suisa, meatball subs, and free lonestars, pina coladas, bloody mary's, and margaritas all day! Overall it was a really fun day! She ended the concert with the fact that we should all come back next year! And I just might :)
Here is me and my friend, Jaclyn afterwards at Chuy's! We are going to be spring break buddies for life. We always have a huge laughfest over spring break! Last year we were in NYC but this year was fun too! Thankful for her :)
