Eatocracy has saddled up in Austin, Texas, all week not only to cover the annual South by Southwest music, film, and interactive conference, but also to prep for the third edition of our Secret Supper. And now, it's officially supper time in Texas.

This go-round, the man behind the burner - or in this case, the smoker - is Zack Northcutt, executive chef at Mulberry and Haddingtons.

He's well-known around town for hosting the "Meaty Monday Madness" gathering for his chef friends around the capital city. From there, they gather round and do what they do best: cook and eat. Chefs from fancy white tablecloth places to vegan food trucks to farm-to-table trailers. There is a sense of coexistence, despite varying types of cuisine, and we wanted to bring that same crossroads to the table.

To assist in tonight's meal and in that same spirit of delicious harmony, Chef Northcutt enlisted four of his chef-est friends, including John Galindo, owner of Izzoz Tacos and chef at the Red House Pizzeria; Mat Clouser of Rabbit + Hat Supper Club; Philip Speer, the executive pastry chef at Uchi and Uchiko restaurants; and Plinio Sandalio, the pastry chef at Congress Restaurant.

Eatocracy is in Austin for SXSW and the third installment of the Secret Supper. Live blog coverage begins at 7:30.

"You got to hang out with Toesy? I'm jealous! She's so cool..."

Toesy, as it happens, is a chicken. Mention her name in a throng of Austin food bloggers or chefs, and everyone knows exactly where you spent your morning.

A scant two miles from the beep and thrum of the 25th annual South by Southwest music, film, and interactive conference and festival, a couple of farmers - and their celebrity livestock - are changing the way the city eats, one egg at a time.

When life gives you chicken and waffles...

...roll them into a taco. Seriously, try it - your soul will thank you later. That's what the folks are doing at Lucky J's in Austin, Texas, whose little red truck I just happened to stumble upon in an empty lot.

To quote the guy behind me in line, "Chicken and waffles! Chicken and waffles in a taco?! Is this real life?" Yes sir, yes it is.

And if you're feeling really saucy, order the Ms. M -  it's got Swiss cheese and bacon in it for kicks and giggles. Drizzle it with honey. Shower it with hot sauce. Call it lunch.
