+1 for the meet-up. I went last time and enjoyed myself. How many people did we have last time? It was about 10 of us or so, right? Too bad we can't have it at someone's place. I was going to make fun of everyone for living in mommy and daddy's basement, but that's basically what I'm doing for now until I can find a decent full-time job. :cry:

I can make it out to Schaumburg if we go to gameworks, but I think that might be hard to manage for a lot of guys. Dave and Buster's I hear is kind of expensive. If it is, it might also be a problem. Me? I'm an alcoholic, so a bar is ideal for me. I went with my cousin to a bar last week that had a NES and PS2 hooked up to two TVs and wireless controllers...and PBR is $1 everyday. Not a bad place.

Any other ideas?


Looking forward to the meet up, I'm in Evanston. I would say a lake front cookout (with BYOB) would be the true CAG way to go, but as we know there is not guarantee on the weather until June. Maybe I missed the location, but the place with $1 PBRs didn't sound bad. OP what is the location of said bar?

I believe it's walking distance to the Lawrence Red Line stop. It's definitely walking distance to a red line stop around there. Obviously I'll find out for sure if we were to go there. My cousin lives by there and introduced me to the place. I wonder if we couldn't even just take our own PS2 games. I'm sure they wouldn't care. It's a laid back place.

Also, that BYOBBBQ is a good idea. That way we could have everyone there regardless of age and also have a cheap bar tab. Not sure where we'd be able to do that, but I'd be up for it for sure.

Is everyone on the North Side? I'm in Lakeview myself, but the Hyde Park/Kenwood area has some nice parks by the lake. It is a little less accessible by public trans (would probably have to take the 6 or similar line)--but I would recommend Promontory Point (former U of C grad here).

If we do end up partying on the North Side, people are more than welcome to share a few drinks at my place and maybe play a few games (gf permitting, of course).

Pre-going out of business sale most likely IMO. Here in Evanston I've already seen one BB close its doors. The BB financials point towards all their store shutting their doors by the end of the year. It will be interesting if congress decides to bail them out:roll:.

ha! BB means nothing to Congress. They'll be the last to get a bailout. The only reason AIG got a bailout was because they were actually important to our economy... BB had it coming, there have been better services out there for too long. They're just the next circuit city. See ya later. I know I won't be missing them, jumped off that sinking ship about ten years ago.

I thought I heard something about Block Buster signing a deal with Circuit City to which someone described it as "two drunks trying to hold each other up." I guess they were right.

Blockbuster got better once Hollywood Video came out. It was so expensive for such crap. Hopefully they stay aloat, I rent movies online through them. Their recent policy changes to online rentals have really pissed me off, though.
