Hire a date, crash the line at SXSW

After everyone decided to bail on Frog Design's party AT THE SAME TIME ("what does Frog do again?"), the wait to get into 16 Bit was something fierce. If someone had brought a keg and made a wiki, it'd be dubbed "linecamp" within minutes. "Oh, you've got a girl with you! Go ahead!" one almost chivalrous fellow remarked to my date. "What stopped you from bringing one?" I shot back. "It's not too late to hire."

Really. The "SXSW Specials" have already hit craigslist -> austin -> erotic services. Here are three — quick, call them before they get flagged.
