Fray Café and Storytelling

If you were up for something a bit mellower, the Fray Café had a night of offline personal storytelling with local authors and other notable visitors. Emceed by Derek Powazek, performers included Lance Arthur, Heather Champ and Shauna Wright. More live music and hot tamales were highlights at the Loomis Group's "SXSW of the Border Bash." While I learned about shaking salt on a lime with my Texate cervasa, I got to meet Loomis Group Interactive Developer April Litz. Austin Consultant Emily Sopensky introduced me to Account Executives Malissa Williams and Courtney Byrd. Their brick-exposed courtyard and backyard patio, flush with tall lush plants and Mexican lighting, made for a festive and special feeling to the soiree.
