Where To Eat And Drink In Austin, Texas - SXSW 2016

How to eat, drink and party like a pro during SXSW

Sure, you know your itinerary for SXSW, which is going down March 11 to 20 in Austin, Texas, like the back of your hand. (Big data and Bitcoin talks or bust.)

However, where are you going to dinner come next Friday? No idea? Thankfully, you have us.

Check out our newly updated Austin City Guide, featuring the best restaurants, bars and provision shops worth your trek.

In the meantime, prime yourself for all the culture, tech and Austin weirdness with these TT-approved recipes:

• Mix yourself a creamy avocado margarita inspired by local icon Curra's Grill. Bottoms up.

• Get your greens in before dropping down in meat country by baking Brie-topped carrots from barbecue maven Tim Love, who's behind Lonesome Dove Western Bistro.

• Construct the perfect sandwich with Noble Sandwich Company. Take that, sad desk lunch.
