Cocktail of the Night, Stranded in Chicago Edition: The Up Room’s Oaxacan on Broken Glass (Bahnez mezcal, house lime cordial, Ancho Reyes Verde chile poblano liqueur, hellfire bitters, a blowtorch-kissed rosemary sprig). If one must be stuck somewhere, being stuck with those fine folks is A+. (We’re now on Night Two of the stranding.)

1984 0010. Props to Wicker Park’s boss and stylish Myopic Books both for slinging me my latest ‘84 - like most of the booksellers I’ve spoken with, they told me it’s their most popular title ☄️- and for selling me a clean tee shirt when our flight to CA was canceled and the airline sent our luggage on anyway. Plume / Penguin Group (New York, NY), 28th printing. #1984project

Non-1984 Orwell interlude: An exquisite 1952 edition of HOMAGE TO CATALONIA via Dominic at Open Books, @housingworksbks’s sister from another mister. To call @openbooksltd a force for literacy in Chicago is an almost comical understatement; they’ve given away almost half a million books and served nearly 30,000 students since 2006, for starters. HELL YEAH, OPEN BOOKS.

1984 0009. Made the tragic decision to visit Westsider Books (“the last used bookstore on the Upper West Side”) with just 10 minutes to browse (I was on the verge of being late for my wildlife hospital). Won’t make that mistake again, and will bring a wheelbarrow next time. Plume / Dutton Signet / The Penguin Group (New York, NY), 15th printing. #1984project

Today from ye olde LES craft cabin: Stone soap inspired by @alanajonesmann. I used a vegan olive oil base and added black pepper, activated charcoal, and sandalwood, cedar, ginger, and clove essential oils.
