2012 AustinJS SXSW Party Wrapup

Now that SXSW is officially over, we had to share the great experience our community provided and shared in at the AustinJS SXSW Party for 2012.  The party, which was aboard the Lonestar Riverboat, was a historic event as we cruised along Lady Bird Lake basking in the incredible weather of which Mother Nature graced us.

You could feel the excitement as everyone patiently waited to board the riverboat, anchor tokens in hand.

The security measures were so strict that it made the TSA look like school crossing guards.

When it was time, the onboarding began.

Our guests made their way to the dock where they were greeted by our hosts and given a raffle ticket.

As music blasted from the top deck, we embarked on our 3 hour tour.

It wasn’t long before everyone was diving into Maudie’s tex-mex tacos and enjoying Fireman’s 4 and authentic margaritas from the bar.
