St. Patricks Party Train: Guinness to Drink & Musical Genius to Alternately Scorn or Applaud

Hi my fellow fun fans:

It’s that time of year that we dread and revere… Daylight Savings Time! Ha, just kidding. SXSt.Pattys. Yeah yeah. So I am not going to go through all of the sxsw stuff. There are some good shows that don’t require wristbands and frankly, it’s probably a lot less pressure. I think I spent a good 48 hours squeezing every bit of musical goodness out of SX last year just to make sure I got the value out of that little orange wristband. Parties attached and auditorium shore stuff here: St Patrick’s fun 2009: Lots of free beer to be found: SX San Jose:

Yours in free music and free-er beer,


New Adventures:
· Sun Harvest, Double Coupons Wednesday. Just go. Its cheap and organic and you don’t have to support whole paycheck
· Wally’s Burgers: Freaking awesome though I have a sneaking suspicion theyre a chain.
· Something to check out on a hot and sunny day:
· Put your money where the music is this SXSW thanks to Yelp Deals. Some of your favorite places to eat and sip are offering 50% off one or more menu items through Sunday, March 22.

Funny & Random:
· Tons of cheap food during SX on yelp, think half price at uchi:
· Who does this?
· Really? You don’t save your kid from the humping dog?
· FYI for SXers: Complimentary Limited Wireless Network at convention center WIFi name is SXSW09
· Best SXSW Scheduler EVER is up:
· Torrent of MP3s is available for this year:
