Earwax, a video store turned cafe that seemed to be a staple of Wicker Park, is gone. Or is it? As it turns out, they're moving across the street. Although that New City story claims the fantastic Myopic Books will be taking the old Earwax space, a sign in the ol' window claims that "Wicker Park Guns and Ammo and Cocktails" will be taking its space. I'm confused. For now, Filter will have to do.
