After much anticipation for Record Store Day 2011, we decided to stop by the Stop Smiling storefront yesterday at 1371 N. Milwaukee Avenue to take a peek inside Numero Group's pop-up store and to say hello to a few friends. The storefront itself was packed with people, and there were tons of records up for grabs at every corner. Although there have been some negative sentiments that were floating around with regards to Record Store Day, they definitely didn't put a damper on the day's festivities as people were bustling in and out of the store with rare finds and eclectic records.
