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.
