Eat the hair of the dog! Not to worry, we’ve all been there…and best thing for you, drink a bunch of water and get some food! Below is a list of top pics for Austin hangover dishes and spots. After some delicious bites–and possibly a bloody mary or mimosa to kill that headache, you’ll be good to go for another day of SXSWi.

We over bacon-ed, over beer-ed and were in a food coma for much of Sunday.
The festival was held at Mile High Station, which made for the perfect venue. The great space allowed for over 875 bacon and beer enthusiasts to take shelter from the cold day and warm up with creative and insanely-delicious bacon dishes and beer!
Some great surprises during the day too– like the best dressed attendees, who came all decked out!
The dishes, beer, restaurants and breweries were amazing and the crowd was spectacular! Thank you to all who attended and in particular to the hard working restaurants and brewers–many of whom gave up their day off to be there with us all.
Enjoy some fun food, brewer, and chef reviews from Eater Denver and Westword’s Cafe Society…as well as some fun Westword photos, too. Take a peek below at some of the tastes posted by Forkly friends– and Cheers to more Forkly feasts & fests in 2013!

If you or some of your friends are attending the Great American Beer Festival this weekend, we’ve added 2700+ beers into the system to keep track of your beer wants, tastes, and notes (includes beer list from this year and from users’ posts last year). An efficient way of recording favorites and unique tastes at the festival, the beers can be found under “Great American Beer Festival in Denver” when you search in Discover–and once browsed through, they’re available offline too (ie. if you’re having trouble with cell service within the Colorado Convention Center, you can still taste & rate on your Forkly account).
