It all started with a text from my roommate. "1330 Quincy. Man Station. Get here." I was on my way home from the beach when I got it so I jumped in the shower, threw on a dress and walked the two blocks from my house. Needless to say, it was, indeed, a man station. Kind of like walking into a JCrew catalog...but better. I had an excellent time-and the hero award went to Buckshot Sonny's, who on top of having incredible products, saved me from a very deep and uncomfortable sliver. Also got to hang out with Seth of The Midwestyle who was an incredible gent. Here are a few highlights. You can see more photos from the event on my Flickr.
