Gname The Gnome
You know him. You love him. You've seen him around the neighborhood. Now you can NAME him!
Wicker Park Bucktown SSA #33 needs your helping naming him our mascot.
Perhaps you've spotted this smug little orange hipster making appearances all over Wicker Park and Bucktown. Sometimes he's in second-floor windows, climbing trees, or hanging out near an art installation. He's been known to catch an occasional show at SubT, jog early in the morning on the 606, and do his shopping in the freezer aisle at Jewel. In his free time, he does volunteer admin work at Wicker Park Fieldhouse and frequents galleries in the Flat Iron Building. But you can ALWAYS find him chilling at the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce at 1414 N. Ashland.
