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.

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.

Cirque du Soleil provided blinking clown noses though this Canuck (Danny Robinson of Bootup Labs) used them in a slightly unintended way.

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.
