Sup ya'll. I'm so glad it's summer. I've been having late night picnics on my lawn. I'm still broker than a damn joke, but that's resulted in me getting very creative with cheap veggies. In the past two days, Ive learned to make 5 new dishes made almost entirely out of zucchini. Mmmm...home-made zuchinni bread. But, never mind, moving right along. My suggestions? Here you go: Second Bedroom, 360See, 2612 Space, Printworks, MoCP, ebersb9, Home, Vega Estates, Hyde Park Art Center...take your pick. Here's the lineup, yo.
