The bar/table/dancing/hammock area at Spiegelworld by the South Street Seaport is really nice - outdoors and right on the water. Last night I was there for the Jose Gonzalez show (which is in the inside ticketed part - the outside is sort of a separate thing). It was cold and rainy, so there weren't that many people out there, but as you can see from the above photo (that I just came across on Flickr) - occasionaly it can become a regular party. Caption the photo in the comments, and if you also want the chance to win tickets to a show at SpiegelWorld, or a "SXSW Live 2007" DVD, keep reading below for instructions.....
