Salute Your Jorts

Misprint's summer spraydown

Salute Your Jorts

August. It's like the Sunday of summer, isn't it? Your inner thighs are chafed, you have no energy, and water consumption has been replaced with two new food groups: Tecate and Twang. The "I don't waaaaaaaaannaaa" is palpable.

Tomorrow, a way to channel that feeling comes via Misprint magazine's Summer Jortacular. Jorts, aka the denim vasectomy, aka the jean shorts bike dudes wear. And it wouldn't be a Misprint joint without kegs, DJs, the Austin Facial Hair Club, a bikini bike wash, centaur rides, and the inevitable wet jorts contest. Starts at 4pm.
