Who Made Those Great Little Freebie Maps (Chicago, Brooklyn, etc)
February 21, 2015 9:15 AM   Subscribe

In 2010, coffeeshops and bookstores (etc.) gave away (for free) cool folded local maps on good, thick paper filled with tips for alterno/artisanal lesser-known shops/restaurants/cafes/bars. The drawing, production, and recommendations were all surprisingly good. There were editions for Chicago, Brooklyn, and, likely, elsewhere. I'm trying to figure out who made them, and whether they're still available. Help?

Could it have been the Cognoscenti guides?

(I misread the year you gave -- Cognoscenti would have been too early for that. Sorry!)

Ask your local Convention and Visitors Bureau. They would likely have such things on their brochures rack in their visitor center and know who is responsible for keeping them stocked.

For a second I thought you were thinking of TODO city guides. But, after checking up on them it looks like they were SF-only, unless perhaps they later branched out.
