All around most of Europe, there are these really nifty vending machines where you can get real food (pizza, sandwiches, salads etc)- not just a pack of Cheetos or a Coke. Plenty of American tourists go bonkers over these machines and usually take an unnecessarily high number of photos of them too, to show off to their less-travelled friends.
Now, America has officially beat Europe. The Standard Hotel's L.A. location has partnered with Quiksilver and has just installed the first ever boardshort/bikini vending machine.
That's right folks. The "Oops, I didn't bring my suit" excuse won't work anymore on red velvet cupcake gorging days. Now you can always drop some cash at the machine and pick up a suit- the bikinis come in plain black, but the boardshorts are available in 4 different designs, including polka dots and stars.
As of now, The Standard in NYC does not have a pool, but word on the street is that a pool is in the works for the future. A swimsuit vending machine in the Meatpacking District.....we have no words.
