Summer is winding down (sniff) but September is looking STUPID. Enjoy your lazy days while you can, because after Labor Day your social calendar is booked, my people. On September 6 we have the @MAYOR EMANUEL BOOK EVENT!, our first-ever party celebrating a book based on a Twitter feed, and to judge from the way […]
