There's a new hourly rental place near Six Corners (on Milwaukee near the Portage Theater). Sneaky Ninja, or something. Looks kinda ghetto, though. Folding chairs and a tiny tv on a stand. The front door was open when I drove past on Saturday.

That place probably used to be across the street from the Patio Theater. It was there a few years ago. Same type of set up.

No free gyro place by me.


I printed one up for Wrigleyville Dogs, but I was too lazy to make a stop. I did make it for one last year but yeah, it was out of the way.

Took 40 minutes to get through the line for Shelly's Freez in Chicago this year, but gyro meat rarely tasted sweeter -- after waiting so long, of course. Still enjoyed it, but better not to wait if you need to eat right away.

Went to wrigleyville dogs yesterday at 12:30 and it was no line no waiting. Almost too perfect. Didn't feel too bad about paying $2 for fries with my free gyro.

I'm down. I may be a little later in the afternoon. Might be helping out with something that day in the morning, but it's also in Brookfield, so I'll be in the neighborhood. I'll shoot for the earliest I can.

I work very close to the one opening in Elgin, I took a peak inside the windows yesterday, small store similar in size to the one in West Dundee was in its final location. Looks like only DVD/Blu Rays and Games, no music.

The Blockbuster next door is closing mid Sept, if you want any discounted blurays and games


I almost never buy anything at the one in Schaumburg, though I stop in a couple times a month. Now I do love a couple of pawn shops in Elgin, so I'll definitely check this one out and see if its any better, someone told me the ones outside of Schaumburg have better prices. Time will tell.

Its open now, decent prices on stuff, 11.99 for God of War Collection lots of sports games of course. Better prices than that Crap Converters on Golf. Earlier gen games are too pricey though

I'm more into the older games. I get REALLY good deals at Cash Converters... but they have been raising their prices majorly the last few weeks unfortunately. Guy who works there told me they used to sell any old school stuff for 1.99 or 2.99 (which I got some amazing deals from) but the owner recently decided to jack prices up. I'll swing by the new Disc Replay on lunch sometime this week if I can figure out where it is... still not listed on their web site. Anyone got an address?

If you guys want to change the date speak up. We can push if back if there are only going to be 3 or 4 of us there.

If some of you guys who haven't been to a meetup actually want to go on another date, post some options and the rest of us can try to adapt.

Since there seems to be a lot of stuff going on pushing back the date is probably a good idea.

Yeah, A push back would be great. I've got to fix a tire, ball joint, brakes, $500+ of parking tickets. So I'm broke.
