Slake threw a big New Orleans-themed Lundi Gras party at The Bootleg theater last night. A good time had by all. Slake co-founder Joe Donnelly told us it was the lit mag’s best event yet, and we would be hard-pressed to disagree. Well over 100 people showed for an evening of art, essays, film and music–if not literally than spiritually–from the Big Easy.

Looks like it was a long day and night yesterday for the Slake crew. That’s co-editor Joe Donnelly passed out on the floor. But, according to the mag’s Facebook page, Slake’s second issue is officially off to the printer.
At around 3 a.m. this morning, Slake art director Alex Bacon hit the button and began uploading Slake No. 2 to our printer’s FTP site. It was the culmination of countless late nights at the Echo Park office performing final reads, designing every last page, and tucking in this beautiful baby for good. We can’t wait to show the city our efforts!
We’re told the issue won’t be back from the printer by holiday time, but gift subscriptions are available through the mag’s online store.
