Best Late-Night Apparel Impulse Buy

It's a quarter to last call. You've had more than a few too many. You're stumbling back through Pike/Pine, and what's the one thing you want to do before you head home? Buy a shirt, obviously. Late at night, Boma Cho opens his sales racks right on the sidewalk; lately, he's been on Capitol Hill near Neumos and the Comet Tavern, though in the past he's been spotted in the U District and other parts of town. He also sells at the Fremont Sunday Market. The guitar-strumming, outspoken conversationalist draws and prints all his designs (giraffes, elephants, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix) onto thrift-store shirts with a chunky, original flair. Clothes may not cure the drunchies, but each one-of-a-kind item is straight-up cool, and you just might find better conversation and entertainment here than you did at the bars. —Mary Pauline Diaz East Pike Street between 10th and 11th Avenues
