Misprint, our homegrown magazine chronicling, well, we don't really know what it chronicles, but we know it's hilarious, hosted the fifth annual Summer Jortacular on August 31 at Shangri-La. The benefit for Austin Pets Alive! encouraged participants to don their very finest cut-off jean shorts and celebrate the end of summer with drink specials, free food, and music from DJ xHCx and Freedom Rock.

Party patrons could take turns knocking friends into the dunk tank filled with dirty jorts. Folks gave their very finest mementos to be placed in a time capsule to be opened in four years or during Shangri-La's last day, whichever comes first.

The jortacular also served as the official kickoff to the Misprint Beard and Moustache Competition, which ends in February.
