Free Beer & Goodies at the Sustainable Media Happy Hour

Another party in honor of our fellow do-gooders at South By Southwest. The Sustainable Media Happy Hour presented by Cree and Triplepundit. The party will be taking place Monday, March 15, 2010 starting at 6PM at The Ginger Man (301 Lavaca) where you’ll be able to have FREE beer and goodies.  From the looks of it, Brita and Josie Maran are listed as sponsors… could that mean maybe those “goodies” include filters and organic makeup? RSVP here to attend and find out!

Free Hey Cupcake! and Beer at Daily Juice Boat Party

I’m on a boat! I’m on boat! Take a good hard looking at my nom-a-fucking boat. Now if this isn’t a NOMtastic party, I don’t know what is! I tweeted about this over the weekend but it’s so awesome I have to post about it. The Daily Juice Boat Party will host the first 200 people on Tuesday, March 16th who make it to their boat (3700 Lake Austin Blvd) at 5:30PM sharp for an evening that you’ll never forget (or prob never remember if you get really wasted and/or overdose on too much cupcakes.)
