Busy Beaver Button Co. welcomes you to Chicago this weekend for the Pitchfork Music Festival!  Visit your favorite button-slinging Beavers at Booth 41 for some seriously super souvenir buttons.

Are you looking for cool things to do outside the fest?  Here’s a mini-button tour of where-to-shop-eat-and-drink-in Chicago.

Uncle Fun is your destination for cheap collectibles, deadstock sunglasses, and buttons old and new.  Sift through drawers for officially-licensed, early nineties Beavis and Butthead 1.5-inch square buttons, original Hipco. 0.5-inch smiley face stick pins, and collect art buttons from the Button-O-matic vending machine near the door.  Come with $5 and go to Pitchfork with a bag full of cool stuff!  1338 W. Belmont (773) 477-8223

Lula Cafe feeds Logan Square-ites some of the best bites in Chicago from local farms.  Grab a breakfast burrito and a free Lula button, take their Button-O-matic for a “spin,” all while admiring button mosaics by Anders Nilsen in both dining rooms.  2537 N. Kedzie (773) 489-9554

The Empty Bottle is an awesome place to rock out on Monday night for a free, air-conditioned show after a weekend in the sun.  Check out headliners the Loose Dudes, famous for “Best Band T-Shirt” in the Chicago Reader “Best Of” issue, and their equally-awesome button selection.  There’s also a vending machine directly across from the merch table currently filled with the “Best Of” Button-O-matic buttons, ranging from the VOTE series to GLOW.  1035 N. Western (773) 276-3600
