Austin City Limits has chosen hosts from around the country to throw ACL viewing parties. A few months ago ACL held a contest to find the perfect host for an Austin City Limits viewing party. They had applicants state their case, recommend venues, pick ACL episodes and more. Next they narrowed it down to about 50 finalists (out of several hundred applicants) and conducted a second round of interviews. From there they picked the best of the best, and the hosts are throwing parties in Maui, Austin, Boston, DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco!

Party planning is underway. Shindigs will include food and drink, some great goodies—including music, gear, and other special giveaways. Prizes will be given for best group photo and most creative photo. Judging is subjective and somewhat arbitrary, so think big. Winning parties will receive subscriptions to Tracks Magazine and Austin City Limits vintage gym t-shirts. The admission is free and so are the munchies, so come on down and enjoy refreshments, get ACL giveaways, and watch an episode with your fan-friends. Look for a party near you.
