Hey zinesters! Come to our Zine Slumber Party (Zlumber Party, geddit? Gosh we’re clever.) This is the second year in a row we’re inviting you to come in and spend the night with us working on your zine, because we had so much fun doing it last year. The store closes at 10pm on Sat the 19th and then you’re invited to spend the night here. So bring yer jammies and a sleeping bag, then leave in the morning with the zine you worked on. Interested in attending? Be sure to shoot a regular ol’ e-mail our way at info(at)quimbys(dot)com or call us at 773-342-0910 so we can have a head count.
