This Week’s Flagpole Deliveries Delayed Due to Storm

Heads up to those of you who still read Flagpole in its increasingly quaint, hipster-approved, perfectly foldable newsprint format:

The company that prints our nearly 15,000 copies each week suffered an extensive power outage due to last night’s Icepocalypse Lite. As such, deliveries of the Feb. 18 print edition, which would normally start to hit local shelves around 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 17, will be slightly delayed.

Don’t panic: Tofu Baby will be in your hands before too long. We expect the (still free and don’t you forget it!) paper will begin hitting shelves at some point Tuesday evening, though it may be Wednesday morning before all distribution points are stocked.

Thanks for your patience!
