A FINAL NOTE FROM SXSW SURVIVOR MATTHEW SULLIVAN

This long week of music and stuffing ones face with sauce-smeared bbq has come to an end, but our good man Matt Sullivan wanted nothing more than to share a few final thoughts on yet another amazing experience.

Snow’s BBQ – in Lexington, TX
Woke up at 6:30am, headed out by 7:15am, and we’re happily wolfing down the world’s greatest brisket at 8:30am (they’re only open on Saturdays starting at 8am and until the meat runs out which tends to be around 10:30am). Thanks to Texas Monthly and The New Yorker for the tip!
