The opening reception at the iMedia Breakthrough Summit was held in an open barn at the Hyatt Lost Pines resort just outside of Austin, Texas.
The hotel resembles a sprawling plantation complete with ancient oak trees and wrap-around porches accented with decorative columns. The architecture conjures images of southern belles, gentlemen on horseback, boots with spurs, and farm animals.
The bartenders (compliments of Mojiva) busily mixed cocktails for guests.
I took it upon myself to indoctrinate (sort of) newbie associate editor Kyle Montero. As you can see, my services weren't needed. Kyle is an absolute pro. And judging by this photo, he might also be a vampire.
Texas wouldn't be Texas without hot sauce. This one is dynamite!
Kyle and Bethany made quite a splash at the Austin airport.
Bethany Simpson (above), our director of video, also took a few pics (below). Check out her blog on Red Bull's skydiving stunt.
