    Everyone has their spot. Whether it’s a cozy bar with dim lights and hand-crafted cocktails, or a coffee shop with vintage copies of literary classics and cappuccinos to die for, we all have that once place where we could hide away for hours--yes, without our iPhones. Living in New York City, there are plenty of options for my spot. From Blank Cafe, to Mud, to Spoonbill & Sugartown, you’d think I’d be set with enough spots inside a five-block radius that I’d never have to leave NYC to find one. But, there’s one place I like to hideout in that I think is definitely worth leaving The Big Apple for.

    Quimby’s Bookstore in Chicago is one of those places that provides hours of entertainment. With zines from local Chicago writers, to world-famous publications, this West North Avenue haven is definitely one to get lost in.
