Have you skinny hipsters or skinny aging hipsters noticed the store FAMILY on Fairfax, other side o’ the street from Canter’s, in what seems to be the new “Super Expensive Skater & DJ Accessories” row? It is a welcome addition to the area that has become a total hodge-podge of high-end new stores, old school Judaica establishments, tea emporiums, and produce stands. Family carries a very eclectic set of zines and books from all your edgy standbys, such as Bukowski (bought this title here) or good old Iceberg Slim.
Do yourself a favor, go get a turkey pastrami at Canter’s, tip your waiter/waitress well, get a slice of apple strudel, go across the street to buy a great comic (say Ivan Brunetti’s oversized Schizo #4, I bought it here), then go home and proceed to sticky-up all the beautiful pages. I command you to do this.
