In nose-scrunching-but-true news: the ACME Hotel is offering slingshot underwear to guests who book its Main Stage Package this summer. Running through Labor Day and geared toward festival-goers, the package (starting at $229) includes a one-night stay at the River North Hotel, cocktails at the Berkshire Room, and a hangover recovery kit with Gatorade, aspirin, and a gift card to M Burger.
And, here's what you were waiting for: The package also comes with a pair of underwear that have the liberating slogan "Do Your Thing" scrawled across them. Said item doubles as a slingshot to toss at an unsuspecting band. You'll also get a temporary tattoo to amp up the charm factor.
