    Atomic carries lots of eclectic titles, but it also serves as the Post Office Box for John Waters fan mail. Write a fan letter across the street while you get a bite to eat at the Golden West Cafe!

    Awesome books plus comics (graphic novels) and more indie zines than you can shake a stick at. Then toys and a record store in the back too!

    When: whenever they're open.Why: Smarter people with attitude order smarter books-not a dud in their stock. Why John Waters shops here. And it makes me happy just to walk in the door. Read more
