Let’s be real here, on top of being the biggest musical festival of the year South By Southwest is also the biggest open bar extravaganza of the year. I’m sure it probably becomes a bit overwhelming trying to figure out which venues and showcases are serving up the free booze so over the next few days I’ll be compiling a list of all the SXSW events that I hear about which include some kind of open bar. You can thank me later.
Oh and P.S. just because it’s open bar it doesn’t mean you have to become a drunken lunatic. Also, since it’s free please be sure to tip whoever’s serving you your free booze.
As I promised earlier here’s a complete list of shops in Atlanta that will be getting their open bar on during Fashion’s Night Out on September 8th. And dear lushes please show that us lushes have some class and buy at least one item during Fashion’s Night Out. It’s more than just free booze folks!
