I know we always say this but let's actually do another meet up.

With all of the festivals this summer, we should be able to do something. Or even go for tacos, or something.

Slowdive that was a great haul! Was that the Zelda limited collection with Orcainia of time and majoras mask? If it was that by itself is a huge find. The cosby show sealed also great find. What suburbs do you usually go to for garage sales ?


Yup, the promo disc! I would prefer not to put my exact location (I don't want to get robbed by a lurker), but I am North of Chicago.


I know we always say this but let's actually do another meet up.


Was the last meet up at that pizza place or did I miss one?

I would really like to trade some guides if you guys have some of the ones I need. The ones I want aren't really worth paying the price to ship them! (Like Manhunt, Manhunt 2, Army of 2 40th day, Metal Gear 4, etc)

Maybe we should have the first annual CAG burrito eating contest!

That's pretty funny as I have a guide for the original Manhunt that I have absolutely no use for and have no problem getting rid of (one of the few penny guides I went for long ago). As for food, I love me some burritos, but I wouldn't mind some smaller (and cheaper) tacos, either; as long as they're awesome, it's all good. :D Swap meet/get-together sounds fine. StarCraft II LAN parties work for me, too.

OK, no cheap talk here. We have to set something up in the next few weeks. We always say we're going to have a meet up, then it never happens. Let's make it happen this time.

Tuesday night doesn't work for me for the next two weeks after this one, but I can work around things most other days (or nights).

Mondays tend to be mixed for me so I'm partial to Wednesdays (at least for the next month), but float a date or three and we can figure out which works best.

What about September 6 or 8 and I'm not sure where is their a decent mexican restaurant expect on the south side so what about at Five Guys at Oak Park?

Anyone else have any other ideas?

Oh, dude. We HAVE to have our meet-up there. I'm out of town this weekend, but we definitely need to check this out. If we do it on a Friday, I can meet you guys there after work (I work out that way, anyways).

Five Guys works for me, too. I don't think we have plans for Labor Day, so I should be around.

In that case, I'm taking a sleeping bag and a cooler. As long as we all play 60 games each, we'd be getting our money's worth.

This places seems our best bet, since the young 'uns can go, too.

Excellent find on that arcade. I know I don't post in this section. But I would love to attend a CAG mid-west meet up especially at this arcade. It sounds a lot like Nickel City, but without the Nickels and a better games list.

Weekend or weekday? That's what we need to decide first. Let's make this one happen, guys.

I'll pm Cheapy to see if we can get some CAG schwag to give away.

And if we have a head count I can try to work out a group discount with the arcade.
