Don’t forget the cold cream. (Or the maraschino cherries)
So, this might be the most boss thing ever. And here we are to co-opt it!
Each year, Quimby’s Bookstore invites zinesters, scensters, and other quasi-literary hangers-on to while away the dull night hours within the safety of a Wicker Park consignment store.
Come stay up all night with us while we work on our zines. We’ll be snacking, chatting, drink coffee– or just putting our messy lives in order. Up to you. It’s not a lock-in, you can leave whenever you want, but while the store is closed over night, we’ll be busily working away inside — sort of elves and the shoemaker kind of shit.
If you haven’t already been to Quimby’s– get on it. As allies of self-publishers and creative project people, Quimby’s provides a place for all those strange mini comics, bizarrely particular zines, and home-made goods that could not otherwise find a shelf.
Direct from the Quimblog:
This is the fifth year in a row we’re inviting you to come in and spend the night with us working on your zine, because we’ve had so much fun doing it in the past. Get here at 9:30 on Sat, Jan 30th (the store closes at 10pm). Then spend the night here! Stay until 6am Sun, Jan 31st! (And yes, you can leave whenever you want before then if you want or need to.) So bring yer jammies and a sleeping bag, then leave in the morning with what you’ve been workin’ on! There will be snacks! And coffee!
