Party Monster: The Happiest Of SXSW Hours

Wish you were here!

Happy hour is one elusive time of day: sometimes you make it, and others you curse everything that prevented you from indulging in it. Luckily for us (not to brag), we were able to sneak in some early evening revelry this past week in Austin, Texas, at SXSW. We partnered with Twitter at #TwitterHouse for a happy hour with Foster Grant complete with a sunglasses vending machine. Kat Graham, The Aces, Bridgit Mendler, and NYLON Music Tour headliner POWERS showcased what they got (which is a lot) for a crowd that was both happy and relaxed for an hour (or, let's be real, more than an hour). It was chill. It was lit. It was everything a happy hour could be. Oh, let's just call it the happiest of happy hours that ever was. (Don't quote us on that, but also... do.) See for yourself in the gallery, below.

Foster Grant's sunglasses vending machine is the only vending machine we need.

TFW your Farrah Fawcett waves need the rhythm.

Let's not kid ourselves, Coco Robert's beats are a major reason why happy hour is so happy.
