2nd stop: Atlanta

We read at the Mint Gallery along with two local readers and two bands, to benefit the nascent Atlanta Zine Library.

Reading highlights

  • The gallery was super cute, and the event coordinator, Amanda Mills, was very gracious. Please send her some zines.
  • Celia’s family and some local friends were in attendance
  • On the way there from New Orleans we ate what I’m referring to as “Alabama tapas” at a strip mall cafe. Advice to traveling veg*ans: you can often get three sides of vegetable (mostly) dishes, when there are few veg-friendly options. Our sides all came in their own dish, so the table was crowded with yam sticks, lima beans, grilled vegetables, green salad, and steamed broccoli
  • three of us stayed at the C7 community warehouse infoshop afterward, which was a fascinating experience. Man, those hackers and slackers smoke a lot of cigarettes!
  • yummylicious breakfast at Ria’s Bluebird (watch out, the site makes music)
  • tofu scramble means something different in the south than it does in the north.
  • my first long drive in the zine mobile (7 hours, and we lost an hour going from the central to the eastern time zone), was quite enjoyable

  1. The tofu is an ingredient, rather than a base. In the tofu scrambles I’m used to, tofu is used in lieu of eggs. The other ingredients are scrambled in it. The southern tofu scrambles were more like a stir fry with tofu cubes included.
