The Monday of months (January) is bringing the fire—there's a lot going on this week including a fundraiser for PFLAG China brought to us by Snap! and Moka Bros as well as two events for Heart to Heart (one involving Celia). A rope bondage workshop at Roxie and New York Times best-selling author and activist Ishmael Beah will be making an appearance at Concordia. Also, the first Unravel of the year is next week and they're still looking for a final storyteller. Plus more, so much more.
