ACL Weekend: Links to Get Down

Just wanted to share some quick link love for those going to ACL this weekend. I’m unfortunately not going to be at Zilker, but wanted to share some good ideas to make your days on the lawn easier and more delicious.
Mike Sutter at the Statesman has a list of the all-star food menu (and drink menu) at ACL.

If you haven’t been before, you are in for a treat with the food, but potentially disappointment in the drinks menu, which features only crappy national beer brands, none of the local brews …

Jeff’s East Village Eating Tour

Austinites, thank you for your patience! This is my final NYC blog of 2010.
I loved it when my brother Jeff suggested he would take Adam and I on an eating tour of the East Village, tasting some of his favorite bites in the city.
The tour included some walking and lots of talking, punctuated by small meals. Our first stop was Porchetta, where we ordered the $10 Porchetta sandwich, dividing it into three.
I loved the delicious, porky, goodness and the crispy bits of skin.
Our next stop was just down the street …

Small Organic Farm Uses QR Codes

Note: This information is co-posted on Mobilisms, a Fleishman-Hillard blog.
At Fleishman, we think QR codes are pretty cool. We worked closely with an automotive client to experiment with them during SXSW 2010 by positioning QR codes on different parts of a vehicle we were previewing.
Conference-goers interested in learning more about a specific feature could scan those codes, reading and saving the information to their smartphones.
Shopping one day at the Whole Foods Flagship store in Austin, TX, I was amazed to see a QR code displayed in the egg department. This …

More Goodness from NYC Food Trucks

While my previous post focused on food trucks that were parked on weekdays during lunchtime on Park between 26 and 27, I’ll cover some other food trucks around the great metropolis known as New York in this one.
The day I met Perry of New York Street Food at Wafel & Dinges (see previous post if you missed it), Adam and our friend Josh met us, and Perry recommended that we walk over to the Desi Truck parked at 27th and 5th Avenue since they were in the mood for Indian …
