Here’s the full lineup of events in The Deep End for Friday, March 9, 2018:
11 AM: Doors open and the day kicks off with our Speakeasy Arcade featuring arcade games and specialty cocktails until 6 PM!
Find the secret side door and enter the arcade of 2018 and beyond, where the editors of Polygon have expertly curated iconic games from your childhood alongside independent gems you won’t soon forget. Specialty cocktails will be served.
Come by The Deep End to enjoy the popular Austin food truck and one of Eater Austin’s essential restaurants, Dee Dee, providing Northern Thai street food for attendees at The Deep End. Chef Lakana Trubiana will be serving on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend coming early!
Join The Verge’s editor in chief Nilay Patel and executive editor Dieter Bohn, alongside Silicon Valley editor Casey Newton and tech reporter Ashley Carman, as they offer an irreverent and informative look at what’s happening right now (and next) in the world of technology and gadgets. Added bonus: the first 100 people to this event will receive a free Verge t-shirt (so come early)!
Join Recode’s Kara Swisher who will speak with activist and journalist Maria Shriver, along with her daughter Christina Schwarzenegger, about their new Netflix documentary, Take Your Pills. The film, which premieres at SXSW, investigates the addictive world of performance enhancing drugs, and how they have impacted education, Wall Street, Silicon Valley and more.
Curbed deputy editor Asad Syrkett sits down with Kyle Hoff, CEO and co-founder of Floyd, to talk about how direct-to-consumer brands are (or aren’t) upending the home goods space. Armed with American-manufactured products and clever transit ads, can these upstarts disrupt established players in the U.S. furniture and home accessories markets?
3:30PM - 5 PM: More tasty Eater food! And it’s a surprise…
Ready for an afternoon pick-me-up? Stop by The Deep End for an Eater-approved surprise bite, rotating daily.
Hosted by The Verge’s Ashley Carman and Kaitlyn Tiffany, Why’d You Push That Button? asks the hard, weird, occasionally dumb questions about how your tiny tech decisions impact your social life. For this live episode, they’ll talk to regular users and product designers to figure out why people ghost their dates and significant others.
