Friday's Best SXSW Day Parties (Updated)

Friday's Best Bets (in no particular order), thought I would list them all in one place to make it easier (I even included links, so if you are already downtown out and about, you can look on your phone's webrowser). Hopefully it helped you out yesterday, it sure helped myself and a lot of my friends. If you didn't RSVP to some events, go to the venue, flash some cash and you never know.
