What’s Cooking at the SXSW SouthBites Food Trailer Park

The sixth annual on-site food hub is extra-special

By Jessi Cape, March 9, 2018, Food

The SouthBites Trailer Park (604 Driskill) will be open daily from 11am-12mid, March 9-17. Roasters Village, in collab with Sprudge, features 10 vendors with enough coffee and tea to fuel a space station. The SouthBites Market also has countless local and national items for purchase to get your snack on before the next panel.

We're already antsy waiting for Hot Luck Festival's kickoff on May 24, but a pop-up edition of Quesoff will tide us over. Sponsored by Washington State Wine and Hot Luck Fest, it's a showcase of cheesy goodness from past winners and special guests, held on Tue., March 13, 2pm at SouthBites. (The competition is later this summer.) "Everyone's a winner," says Adi Anand, Quesoff co-founder and GM of Hot Luck partnerships.
