It can't always be tropical drinks in exotic destinations with fellow bloggers. Next week we'll be attending as much of Pilcrow Lit Fest as we can, and the weekend of the 23rd-24th brings, in rapid succession, Pilcrow's finale, my niece's first birthday party, and a Retro Zombie Tiki Terror party (more on that later.)
But for now, it's garage sale time. This is the weekend for the annual Mount Prospect Garage Sale: 500 + garage sales in one weekend. You can read more about it here.
We cleaned out (mostly) the basement and (pretty much) the garage, and we'll be peddling our crap on Friday and Saturday. We'll be taking Sunday off to go to church and then sacrifice a hog.
Mark your calendars now for Sunday, May 24th. The Chicago Horror Society is presenting Retro Zombie Tiki Terror! at the Tiki Terrace in Des Plaines. There will be drinks and contests and pinups and zombies, and a certain lovely and talented young woman will be working the event. Come out and party like it's 1959. You can sleep in on Memorial Day.
