Come visit Busy Beaver Button Co. and at Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend in Chicago!

Fest go-ers flock to the booth for photo button souvenirs because they’re cheaper than the beer, never get warm, and  always stay “cool.”

Come say hi and make buttons on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  Click here for more info about Pitchfork.

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
