2011_9_19_chirp_radio.jpg has put together a free "record crawl" on Sunday, November 13 with stops at some of Chicago's finest shops. It's kind of like a pub crawl, but with better music and less vomiting. Those who join the crawl at the start on 11 a.m. Sunday will receive a "golden ticket" and a badge for special discounts and gifts along the route.
