Over the Weekend: Slake Party at Atwater Crossing

Slake has yet to throw a big bash for the release of its third issue “War and Peace”–we’re told that won’t happen until late August. But we got a sneak peek at the issue over the weekend at Slake‘s contributor party at their new office in Atwater Crossing. And we have to say, it looks really good–despite the fact your humble Fishie wasn’t in this one. And despite the fact he only has one eye to check it out right now. (Don’t ask, the answer is unpleasant.)

Haven’t read through the whole issue yet, but so far Hillel Aron‘s piece “The Last Freeway,” about the history of the 105, is the real standout. We also enjoyed Natasha Vargas-Cooper‘s dispatch from the Wisconsin labor war.

Looking forward to reading through the rest…when I get both eyes back.
