*In Austin for SXSW? Join locals and other visiting IxDA-ers for breakfast!*
*
*
*WHEN:*
*Monday, March 15, 8:30 am*
Yes, it's early, but we don't want you to miss too much of the conference.
You likely miss the first session, but you were probably going to miss it
anyway, right?

*WHERE:*
*Cisco's Bakery*
To save you time and trouble, locals will pick you up at the Convention
center and shuttle you to breakfast a few minutes away. We'll be dining at
Cisco's, a well known old-school dive on the East side that's chock-full of
60 years of local history. Tex Mex, biscuits, and butter in a bottle. 'Nuff
said? By the way, Tex Mex is great hangover food.

*
NOW WHAT?
If you'd like to join us, please send an email to austinixda at gmail.com.
We'll send you the pickup location upon RSVP. Space is limited, and I'll
need a fairly accurate head count to ensure rides and room for everyone, so
please RSVP thoughtfully.

Look forward to seeing you!

PS. As much as we'd like to get your breakfast, it's BYOB (buy your own
breakfast).

*Some background on Cisco's:*

> Cisco's is a bakery, hence the flour tortillas. The restaurant business was
> a sideline and they didn't take it very seriously in the old days. In the
> secluded rear dining room there used to be a self-serve crockpot full of
> pinto beans with a little sign that said: "Tex-Mex Salad Bar." Cisco's
> became famous for breakfast thanks to LBJ. When LBJ told Rudy Cisneros to
> make him a Bloody Mary one morning in the 1960s, Rudy said, "But I don't
> have a liquor license." LBJ wrote "liquor license" on a napkin, signed it,
> and told Rudy to go get the damn tomato juice and vodka. From then on,
> Cisco's started serving free Bloody Marys starting at 7 am--the earliest
> place to get a drink in Austin for many years. (You can't sell liquor
> without a liquor license, but you can give it away.) You had to buy
> breakfast to get a drink--hence the enormous popularity of Cisco's huevos
> rancheros. The place has a liquor license now, but I still get the runny
> huevos rancheros and flour tortillas for breakfast when I visit.
