No doubt. A meet-up at this place could get ugly...

Yesterday, on the way to the Double Door, I stopped into Emporium. It has a good amount of games, all old school. Less games than Galloping Ghost but they have liquor. And we could hit up exchange and the other trade in store in the area.

All these years and I can't believe I just poked my head in this thread. North suburbs represent! Anyway, when is the next meet up? Also, I'm Meta4ik on XBL and PSN so drop a line sometime.



Hey man I'm in northside too, around the Skokie/Niles/Morton Grove area, glad to hear other cheap gamers are around here.

I'm the sous chef at Francesca's Forno at North/Milwaukee/Damen. I'd be down for a meetup, and if everyone wanted to start their night off here at the restaurant, I'll use my manager comp allowance to give a discount on the food bill. Then we could all walk over to emporium barcade and start the drinkin and gaming!!!! If anyone is serious about planning a meet-up, PM me

I'd be down to come in from the west burbs...mid to end July works for me.

I'll be at Lolla working the first weekend in Aug, but after that August doesn't look too bad for me either.

I got some city friends that wanna try out Emporeum too

it looks cool (and i'm a HUGE zelda fan), but it is a bit pricey for me.

Went to emporium 2 nights ago. Its pretty cool. They need more games, and several that I wanted to play were out of order. It was only their first week being open, so they have a few kinks to work out. But its all craft beers so I was happy I could play marvel vs. capcom while sipping on a coney island human blockhead. Overall, its no galloping ghost, but cool to have a block from my work.

I'm finding it very difficult to game in this heat. Got to the point where one of my box fans is now pointed right at my PS3. Stupid nature.

I watched four DVDs straight on my PS3 during yesterday's 100 degre fun. It really started to hum...loudly...during the third movie. Made it through without any issues.

Maybe a good time to invest in an air conditioner? ;)

This is my main concern. The website lists some decent games, but if they don't work, then it's kind of a let-down. Especially for people who don't drink.

Possible dates for meet-up:

Sunday, July 15
Sunday, July 29
Saturday, August 11 (my personal preference)

Unless you all would like to do a different Saturday in July without me.:)

Found a slightly better (and cheaper) alternative. My wife bought one of those 10' diameter pools that's about the size of a jacuzzi. Makes the heat a lot more bearable.

Any of those dates would probably work for me. Got worried about the Aug 11 one, but turns out it's the 18th I know I'm busy on so far. You guys decide, and I'll try and keep the date open for this. Even if we want to do something smaller, I'm down too. I live about 5-10 minutes away from this place so I should be able to pop in most days when I'm free.
