Chicago Heavy Metal Record Crawl

Stan's Donuts & Coffee

This is the first Chicago Heavy Metal Record Crawl ever for the Chicago Heavy Metal Group!!! We will visit five record stores mainly in the Wicker Park area and we will end the crawl in Avondale with dinner most likely at Taqueria Traspasada. You are not obligated to buy anything metal or buy anything at all during this crawl but I ask that you be respectful of other attendees music tastes. **VOLUNTEERS NEEDED** - We need volunteers to offer rides from Wicker Park to Bucket O' Blood records. I have four seats in my car and I will park in the middle of the Wicker Park route. Meetup location: We will meet at Stan's Donuts & Coffee on 1560 N Damen Ave to have coffee and donuts at 2 PM.
