SXSWi ’08: Frenching Fire @ Frog Design Fete

FrogPartyLickItToGetHigh.jpg
Overheard: “I wish I could lick that big frog to see if I get high.”

We’d heard plenty about FrogDesign’s storied SXSWi annual opening soiree, and with party lines here in Austin stretching lengths of city blocks, we were wary. But the shindig didn’t disappoint: Keeping the crowd agog was a salsa band, break dancers, and women playing with fire (allegedly, before we joined the slobbering circle, the women passed an open flame from tongue to tongue). We spotted Julia Allison at one point, but her entertainment value was well eclipsed by those hired to put on a show. Our Circus blog has video here, and more pics follow:

Frankly, the ladies owned the entertainment all evening, as illustrated by this upside-down breakdancer. Not a coincidence at a conference where men outnumber women by three to one.

We’d have captured him on our SneakerCam (TM), had her mukluks not stolen the show.

Taco Tally: Five, still. We broke it up with some BBQ.
