Quimby's hosts second annual Zlumber Party

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Quimby's Bookstore in Wicker Park houses what may well be the city's most extensive selection of literary, semi-literary and decidedly non-literary treasures and oddities for your perusing and purchasing pleasure. That includes, to quote the venerable shop's website verbiage, "unusual publications, aberrant periodicals, saucy comic booklets and assorted fancies." You know, fancies. Not surprisingly it's also home to a slew of so-called 'zines, which the omniscient Wikipedia.com defines as "small circulation self-published work[s] of original and/or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier." Wanna make your very own in the company of folks doing likewise? Then pack up your sleep gear and haul it over to 1854 West North this weekend for the second annual Zlumber Party. (And don't forget the snore strips.) Come Saturday, January 19, Quimby's closes to the public at 10 p.m., after which you've got all night and into the next morning to come up with something totally wacky or deadly serious or utterly grotesque. Maybe something like "Serial Killers Unite!" (yes, that's a real 'zine) or "Rad Dad 23." Sound super? E-mail info@quimbys.com or call (773) 342-0910 to reserve a spot.
