I'm really into the clan that has formed among inner E Burnside boutiques. I feel like they should play softball against the West End or something. And once again, they're banding together for an end-of-season sale on June 23—an event worthy of note. The first version of this kind of teamwork resulted in plenty of killer deals on high-quality designer merch, which was matched by an enthusiastic attendance. This is starting to look like a good pattern.
