We are back!
Looking for a location turned out to be a bit more time-consuming and secret than we thought (we looked at some spaces that aren't quite on the market yet, so we had to be quiet about it). But we picked our space, we signed a lease, and we're ready for next steps!!
Here's our exciting updates:
1. We finally settled on a name: Lively in Guyville. We like that it sounds friendly and small-town-ish (Welcome to Guyville!) and we like that there's a nod to one of Kate's favorite albums, Exile in Guyville, and Liz Phair originally using it to refer to the Chicago music scene. Local history for the win!
2. We have created a very important survey and could really, really use your help. Have a minute? Help us get things rolling for the new store!
3. We’re brewing a collaborative beer with Oak Park Brewing Company to celebrate our grand opening in their space (we're targeting an 8/7 opening, but that's still up in the air!)
