“Call Me By Your Name” star Armie Hammer is in Austin for South by Southwest, along with his wife, actress and University of Texas alumna Elizabeth Chambers. They walked the red carpet at Thursday night’s Texas Film Awards at the Austin Film Society. Hammer’s new film, “Final Portrait.”

Luckily, it looks like the Hammers found a cure for Armie’s empty stomach. Any idea what barbecue joint the pair stopped at?
