Slake Launches New Issue With a Bang

Lit journal Slake throws a big to-do every time they launch a new issue, and the events are becoming something of a staple with the local literati. Friday night the mag took over the Atwater Crossing courtyard to celebrate issue #3, and FishbowlLA braved the weekend’s heatwave to work the crowd.

More pics from Friday’s festivities after the jump.
