All Things Go

Some call it Chi-town. Some call it the Windy City. This weekend, some former and current IR editors drove to Chicago and fell in love again. Here are just a few reasons we're psyched about AWP 2012 happening in this glorious place.

1. The live music—jazz and blues, especially.
2. Family Matters was set here.
3. Quimby's Bookstore has an eclectic collection of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, lit mags, zines, comics, graphic novels, etc.
4. The amazing architecture.
5.The stunning skyline.
6. Lake Michigan.
7. Bennigan's on the loop.
8. For some of us, the joint where you can build your own custom burger. For others, sushi and Jamba Juice. For all of us, the food in general.
9. The good, salt-of-the-earth people of the Midwest!
10. A super exciting event, TBA in the months to come. Stay tuned!
