  • Daily Candy tells me there's a new place open on Division called Caffe Streets. Chemex coffee, custom Intelligentsia espresso blend, Madcap brew, and Portland-based Hotlips soda (a Chicago exclusive). Purposely no wi-fi. Caffe Streets, 1750 West Division Street, between Wood Street and Hermitage Avenue (773-278-2739 or caffestreets.com ). -- Anne Howard a-howard@^$1

  • I'm going to try to make it and may bring the baby if there are people who would like to meet him. Will wait until next week, though, if everyone's going to Guild or something. Anne

  • These are the vintage ads I mentioned yesterday, including the Lysol one. They seem real to me, and are really scary. http://www.retrocomedy.com/2009/07/15-creepiest-vintage-ads-of-all-time.html Anne

  • Running with Valerie's idea from Tuesday night... At the regular SNB in two weeks (3/24), we'll have a little beauty product swap session.
