“For those reacting to an un-Entrepôted November the same way I react to Popeye’s drive-thru taking forever (“What’s taking so long? They gotta pluck the chicken ‘fore they can fry it?”) fear not, good (and quite attractive, and smart, and…) readership of Entrepôt. The Double Issue drip drops to your fine peepers soon. 24-pages, color photos, and a free broadside. Tell your jazz-loving friends. Tell your therapist. Hell, tell strangers! Entrepôt Nos. 3 & 4 Double Issue coming sooner than a 12-piece mixed with biscuits and fries.” —Editor in Chief, Geoff Munsterman
