We just got back from the windy city, and we both just fell ass over teakettle in love with the place. The city, with its houses and apartments stacked atop one another, riding the train, seeing friends, and sharing fantastic milkshakes at the Chicago Diner are just some of the things we fell in love with, and we can’t wait to go back.
And then there was the Chicago Zine Fest. Which was totally fucking awesome. We sold some books, traded some zines, met a lot of cool people, and ate lunch from the Soul Veg truck (total score!). We also cemented most of our project for the next year and a half (stay tuned–very exciting stuff coming up!). In short, it was totally amazing and it was really, really hard to leave.
But, all things come to an end, and so did our time in Chicago. But good things and many projects await us in our lush rainy cities of Seattle and Tacoma, and we’re jumping in feet first. oh, and Neely is reading tonight at Left Bank Books with Cindy Crabb (Doris! zine) and Nyky Gomez, so come on by at 7:30 if you are in the area. Hope to see you there!
