Scurvy Friends

This past weekend Mike was in the area for a family birthday and he came into the city. We met up for lunch and then I tagged along with him for a few hours while he took photographs around Bucktown, Wicker Park, East Village and Ukrainian Village. It’s always eye-opening to walk around streets you’ve been down a million times, but to do it with someone new who’s seeing it for the first time.

When we were walking down Chicago we stopped in at Rotofugi and I couldn’t pass up buying this shirt. Now all I need are the Scurvey Friends “Cuddlers.” Rotofugi is a great store. Lots of great toys for big people. I could spend a lot of money there. Kirby, who owns Rotofugi with his wife, came to one of our Chicagoist happy hours and I stalked him once in the subway, but I didn’t see him there on Saturday.

    What settings did you use on your camera to take the photo in the bar of the neon light? I really enjoyed seeing your pictures, but would love to see the settings for all the night time shots.

    Thanks, Magdalene

    Alas, Rachelle, we were out of town at the American International Toy Fair (lotsa photos on our forums)…sorry we missed you. Good choice on the shirt though!

    Heeeyyyyy how can I buy that shirt…you’re not offering it for sale, you’re just showing us a tantalyzing picture of your kick-ass new shirt and you’re not even telling us common people how we can acquire it.

    To hell with you sir!

    I Love You
