Raygun in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood


The Des Moines-based Raygun, world famous for its snarky t-shirt commentary on Iowa, the Midwest, presidential politics and more, has opened its first Chicago outpost, conveniently for me in Andersonville, walking distance from our kids’ apartment in Edgewater. The lovely young woman who runs it is someone we have known since she went to grade school with our kids so I made sure to drop by and say hi and buy something.

We were so busy talking that I didn’t really get to look at the Chicago merchandise in particular but saw a few classic raygun witticisms, bouncing off the political news. Also saw a coaster I had to buy (see photo above) that speaks to a very particular population…including us, — people in Des Moines debating whether to move to Chicago.
