So we made it finally, after a late start to our road trip, yesterday, to The Social Revolución at SXSWi in Austin, Texas. For a moment there it looked like we might not because of delay after delay – lo que me pasa por no haberme preparado the night before – but finally we were there and having a good old time. The Social Revolución was sponsored by Univision News, among others, and we had the chance to meet a lot of great people while we were there. Kind of unexpectedly, afterwards, we ended up crashing another party hosted by my friends at Ford – well, we were invited – where they served some really great Texas home style bar-b-que. That really made our night before we made the three hour drive back to Houston.
Check out our pictures from this mini road trip:
The Social Revolución in Austin. The party was actually held at the Maria Maria restaurant, which is owned in part by famed musico Carlos Santana.
These guys really know how to impress. The screen printing booth was pretty awesome! You could choose your tee from one of four different designs.
I, of course, opted for the simple charcoal color with white lettering. Very nice!
Next was the Revolucionarios Photo Booth, which had some pretty awesome quote bubbles to choose from. What else would I pick but "Me Gusta Tweetiar".
Mando, the man behind The Social Revolución, gave Juan of Words a shout out during the awards segment of the presentation. Very nice of him!
Then it was time to get a little taste of the Austin SXSW night life. The city was literally brimming with energy and activity.
We headed over to the Ford shindig to check out the new Escape and to eat some home style Texas bar-b-que! Excuse our funny looking gestures...
The bar-b-que was awesomely delicious! I had to undo a couple of buttons afterwards just to be able to breathe. I may not be eating for a few days, LOL!
It was pretty cool to get to play with the Ford Escape after dinner and while the live band was playing. Plus there were a lot of filmmakers in the room!
Finally, this was my prize for being nominated for The Innovator award at The Social Revolución at SXSW. I am really grateful for the nod! Thank you Revolucionarios!
