It’s Day 9 of the South by Southwest Festival in Austin. For more than a week you’ve been out on the town looking for parties and celebrities and possibly stalking Bill Murray. You’re dehydrated and sunburned and regretting your decision to wear fashionable footwear even though we begged you to wear comfortable shoes. Are you going to make it to the finish line?

Of course you are! If this grackle – spotted having a pizza snack outside Stubb’s during Rachael Ray’s Feedback Party – can push through the final weekend of SXSW, so can you. You’ve reached the metaphorical crust of the festival. 

Grab some water. Find an awesome show for tonight. Be like the grackle. (And, uh, if you see Bill Murray, let us know.)
