SxSW is upon us! That great boondoggle of a tech / film / music conference in Texas is back and we’re headed south. Perennially, one of the common discussion themes that to come out of SXSW is “Gamification“. Web programmers, manufacturers and marketers ask themselves, “How can we engage everyone in a fun way that will keep them coming back for more?” “How do we incentivize the experience of being a consumer so people get excited?” Insert some question about “millennials” and the “internet” and “demographics”, and you can call it a day.
This year, we ask you to take a break from all your data crunching and outside-the-box tech brainstorming. Put down your experimental wearable tech and come enjoy some “Countryfication”, the perfect combination of barnyard animals, games, beer, and Texas. We’ll be providing free beer from 2pm – 3pm. Food 52, a community of home cooks that hang out online and in real life, will be on hand for a homemade cornbread swap. The Tiny Tails To Youteam are bringing a petting zoo and some “gamified” animal attractions so there will be plenty of behavioral research that you can take back to your office recap meetings after the festival.
We have a bevy of exciting attractions coming out to The Grackle including, but not limited to:
~One free hour of beer (2pm-3pm)
~Tiny Tails To You Petting Zoo (2pm-5pm)
~Chicken Shit Bingo
~Tortoise Vs. Hare Race
~Live music from Leo Rondeau and Silas Lowe
~Brooklyn Brewery Cornhole
~Food 52 Cornbread Swap
~ Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams will be scooping up the good stuff—with Honey Cornbread Gravel on top.
~ After Party with DJ Jester the Filipino Fist, 6pm - 10pm
