I hope many of you are planning on attending our launch party tomorrow night in celebration of TriQuarterly Online Issue #139. Again, the party is Friday, February 11, from 7:00-10:00 p.m. at Riverview Tavern, 1958 W. Roscoe Street in Chicago. Great readings and refreshments are in store. Street parking is not difficult, or take the Brown Line to Paulina.
In other events, Ragdale House is looking for alumni to strip. Yes, if you are interested in helping strip wallpaper in preparation for the building's renovation, contact Regin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stripping is staged for Saturday, February 26, noon to 6 p.m. Wear whatever you think is right.
Chicagoans, if you haven't done it yet, complete the Creative Chicago Survey by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs by February 25. This is an opportunity to let the city know what artists and writers need in terms of space, programs, and other assistance. I just finished it and it did take the expected fifteen minutes. Be heard!
