The Oregon Hill community blog posted about the Richmond Zine Fest and had pictures of the Wingnut table and the Flying Brick table.

This past weekend we participated in the 4th monthly Mobile Food Pantry. This is a project that is the joint effort of the WIngnut Anarchist Collective and the Central Virginia Food Bank. Throughout the month before the event, the Wingnut distributes vouchers for free groceries throughout Southern Barton Heights. One voucher per household. Then on the second Saturday of each month, the Food Bank drives out a huge and awesome truck to the parking lot next to the Goal Post Restaurant at 2400 North Avenue- at the intersection of West Graham and North Avenue. The Wingnuts then work with 2 folks from the Food Bank to set up tables full of food. At 1pm the distribution starts. People who have vouchers are given priority, since they are the people that we guaranteed access to the food. The only qualification for the vouchers is living in the Southern Barton Heights area. People who are disabled, elderly, or otherwise unable to come the day of and pickup the food (it is quite heavy) can contact the Wingnut ahead of time to arrange a delivery. We recommend bringing more than one person per voucher to pick up the food on the day, it is usually more than 1 heavy bag worth of groceries. Re-usable bags are also a really great thing to bring with you- paper ones don’t last long with the weight! (more…)

This Wednesday, October 20th at 7pm, is Craft Night at the WIngnut!
Come work on your projects, start a new project with some of our supplies, or even to play games.
We will also be making pinatas for the Really Really Free Market and the Wingnut Halloween Party. Anyone with pinata making experience is highly encouraged. We are probably going to do paper mache over balloons to make the pinata shells, which we will decorate the following week.
Hope to see you there!

The Zine Reading potluck at the Wingnut on Friday October 15th was a huge success. There were around 30 people in attendance and we heard from 7 or 8 different zinesters. 2 out of town zinesters as well as people old and new to Richmond read. Some of the readings were entertaining, some personal, some poetry, some spoken word, and some very political. They represented a good mix of the types and content of zines. There were many yummy dishes- from vegan muffins to mac n ‘cheese’ to fake bologna sandwhiches.
It was really relaxing and pleasant to share food and stories with so many nice people. The Zine Fest organizers in attendance were really excited about the turnout. We hope this is just the beginning of the development of a supportive and dynamic zine community in Richmond.
