So last week I did this blog post highlighting the 15 SXSW Parties You Really, Really Don’t Want to Miss. And I got a ton of email from you guys saying a) “Thank you, you’re my hero!” and b) “We want more, more, MORE!” It’s not for nothing that SXSW is called “spring break for the tech crowd.” ;)

For the hardcore partier, I’ve put together what I think is the definitive and best List of SXSW Interactive Parties (225+ and counting!). Print this out for ur trip and you’re golden, my friend.
