Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Occasionally, as when we were children, we fantasize about spending the night within the racks in a department store. Just the same with a big bookstore. Not that this is anywhere near a gigantic bookstore, but this is as close as you're going to come to sleeping in one. It's the second annual Zlumber Party, put on by Quimby's on North Ave in Wicker Park. Jump into some jammies, load up the flask and spend the night with like-minded independent zinesters working on something creative. The store closes at 10PM on Saturday the 19th at which point the popcorn starts poppin' and the magic starts to happen.
