These are pictures from the annual Alltop/Kirtsy GirlGuy SXSW party.
We hold it at Allens Boots because, well, no one else would throw a party at a boot store.
And no other party at SXSW has a real chuckwagon.
This is Amber and Maggie. They’re the two gals who basically made the whole party work.
You don’t see shoes like this at the Stanford Nordstrom.
The owner of Allens Boots and his son.
You don’t get this at Nordstrom either.
This is 2/3 of the Kirtsy founders: Laurie Smithwick and Laura Mayes. Kirtsy, if you didn’t know, is “Digg for chicks,” so check it out.
This is Aaron Mentele of Electric Pulp, the company that developed Alltop. I’m trying to get him to add some new features to the site.
No other party had a pink girls outhouse either.
That’s @MayhemStudio, my Asian twin, in the middle.
Alltop sponsor Starbucks was there in force providing samples of VIA, the new instant coffee.
Robert Hoyos of Throwboy. He makes these cool pillows for social media brands.
The amazing Kris Krug, the official photographer of the party. Follow him on Twitter at @KK. One of the coolest aspects of the party was that Kris took pictures of people and then immediately printed them out on three totally cool HP PhotoSmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-in-One printers which meant that people could leave with their cowboy photos.
This is how a party in Texas ends: putting away the hay.
Yeah, and some end like this too.
