Gearing up for Pete's Mini Zine Fest 2011!

Hey guys! The 2nd annual Mini Zine Fest is slated to happen on:

Saturday, May 28th 2011, 3-7pm
(Rain date: June 4th)

It will be at Pete's Candy Store, a cute little bar over in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

709 Lorimer St, between Frost and Richardson
Take the L to Lorimer or the G to Metropolitan.

Last year's fest was a huge success, with a nice, chill vibe, fantastic work for sale, and wonderful bands performing! So please mark your calendars, and get ready to nurse a beer while chatting with zinesters.

Interested in tabling? Hold tight--We'll be accepting applications soon.

In the meantime, to give you an idea, here's the list of tablers and performers at last year's fest:
