Tuesday Tweet of the Week: Addie Broyles Gives SXSW Eats

At every turn my food knowledge, writing and experience are seemingly becoming greater and greater. There is no doubt I'm completely in love with food and cooking. Heck, I want to make a career out of it. Rather, I am going to make a career out of it. One of several great occurances so far this year has been my intro to the world of foodies and other bloggers in the Austin area. The scene here is really well represented with enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and humble people. So far I've done several things with different 'food' groups and every one has been great.

This weekend is the start of a big festival called South by Southwest. Characterizing this event is difficult. It spans many days, includes music, food, movies, tech seminars and more. Sadly, I won't be around to experience any of the food festivities as I'm leaving Friday morning to go train in Florida for a couple weeks. I'll depend on others to keep me up to speed.

One of the true leaders of the Austin foodie world is named Addie Broyles. She is a well respected food writer for the Austin American Statesman, a food blogger, and no doubt a twitterer. One of her recent tweets really caught my eye. My initial emotion was excitement, followed by a bit of sadness in that I'll be unable to attend. This tweet however is a great one for all of you who will be in town for SXSW and/or are interested in the general food scene here in Austin. Make sure to also check out Addie's blog and twitter feeds.

Dang I wish I could go to some of those!

You'll be missed at these food events, but happy training in Florida! Looking forward to a blogger potluck in April...
