The Boring Store

As you may or may not know, Dave Eggers and the folks behind McSweeney’s have set up a few writing schools for kids across the nation. The Chicago branch, 826CHI, is like the others in that it hides behind another storefront. It’s like a front, but without the… uh… frontness.

Some guy with a blog visited the store and posted photos and, I’ve got to say, it looks very very boring. In that special way.

While I looked through this I kept thinking that if I was a kid I would have loved a place like this. Who wouldn’t want to try on moustaches and learn about creative writing in the same place? Nice idea.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
