Home Slice Pizza Hosts Free Photo Bus ATX Event at South Congress for SXSW
Parked in front of Home Slice East ATX photo busa vintage Volkswagen van that has been refitted to serve as a functional photo booth.
Home Slice and Photo Bus ATX created this event so that guests and fellow Southern Congress Explorers can experience a fun way to make memories during SXSW.
Jeff Mettler, who manages special projects for Home Slice, notes that turnout isn’t as high as it was in 2019, but it looks like it could get there.
Mettler says Home Slice used to do a music event called “Music By the Slice” for SXSW that included daily live music for customers – an event they continued for nearly a decade, until now.
“This time we’re operating as a Home Slice business and doing something fun in the spirit of hospitality and creating new experiences for our customers,” Mettler said. “So we set up the Photo Bus here, trying to create something new and different in front of our restaurant.”
The photo bus is free and those interested in participating receive a range of props and can take a series of four photos. After posing for the snaps, the photo postcards are printed almost immediately and can be kept for free.
The owner of the decorated van is Fernando Rodriguez, who says he found the van in Kansas City through a friend.
“We picked him up in Kansas City and brought him back to West Texas,” Rodriguez said. “I restored it, repainted it, got a new interior and everything.”
Rodriguez said his company stayed busy during SXSW, and the bus will be at Home Slice for one more day — March 19 from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Photo Bus ATX is also available for reservation in line.
