Yesterday after polishing off a few fish tacos and Rio Bravos at Big Star, I hesitantly began painting over the beautiful mural of the Zephyr girl at The Violet Hour at 1520 North Damen in preparation to install a version of Killing Season on the facade. My friends Rachel Esser and Liz Gray kindly helped me paint for the price of a few Violet Hour cocktails.
Rachel and I got started while Liz supervised and took pictures
Many passers by were upset with us for painting over the Zephyr girl
The Violet Hour is now sporting a new caution orange color. If you're in Wicker Park tomorrow stop by and say hello. I'll be there all day pasting the photographs to the facade.
