RIP, Spin Cycle

Let's hope the owners of Spin Cycle, Wicker Park's largest Laundromat, work out a deal with the management company of the strip mall where they rent space because this place is essential. And now it appears closed.

This morning, we awoke early post-holiday, seized by a desire to 'get our act together,' and be productive. Among exciting tasks, laundry was at the very top of our list.

RIP, Spin Cycle. :(
