I've been here before, and I have to say the Fish & Chips are awesome. All I did was play House of the Dead 2 & 4 the whole time though. I had enough refills of Coke to last me a lifetime and time flies past there like theres no tomorrow.

Only negative? You gotta have someone 23 years old or older to bring in younger CAGs. We got some guy to get us in when we went. :lol:

Yes, it is the Bethesda Dave & Buster's location. North Bethesda to be exact. For some of us who have lived here for ages, we still view the White Flint Mall that the D&B's is located in as Rockville. I don't know exactly when the name change happened, but I do know that it coincided with property tax and home price increases. I presume that N. Bethesda carries more cache than Rockville (regardless of R.E.M.'s homage to the girl from said city).


When did White Flint Mall get a Bethesda address? I grew up in DC, and to me and my friends White Flint Mall was always in Rockville. I was poking around google and I noticed that Borders bookstore gives it's location in White Flint Mall a Kensington address. What gives? I know it's not a big deal, but to people not familiar with the area it must get a bit confusing.

And in response to Lurknoemore's presumption about Bethesda vs. Rockville; you absolutely correct my friend. Bethesda will always trump Rockville in the eyes of people who care about such things around here. It's like McLean compared to Vienna in VA. Or Georgetown vs Foggy Bottom.

Just had a buddy of mine make a sig for the meetup. If you want to use it, the link is http://i76.photobuck...1/CAG/dcsig.jpg

This is very cool, think we will have more folks than last time.

Anyone bringing items to sell/trade, park in the top level of the garage in front of the Dave & Buster's entrance.

Look forward to seeing everyone!

I think you might beat me for being the farthest away. I'm at about an hour and a half out, but I cheat since my in-laws live about 20 mins from D&B and I'll be staying there for the weekend.

FYI, the Bailey's Crossroads Best Buy had about 12 Wiis as of last night (endcap of games aisle, middle of store). It seems like most people that want them have them, but now is the time if you want one before the holiday madness.

Also, that Best Buy kept their PC copies of Orange Box in the back, so I had to ask for it. Perhaps they are trying to wait out the CC pricematch, which is what I was there for.

To make trading easier, please park your car on the third level of the mall just outside of the exterior entrace of D&Bs. This will make swapping easier. Please also be sure to securely lock your valuables in the parking lot (as this is an "open" forum).

Received a coupon in the mail saying that the NEW Microcenter on Rockville Pike is now open. The coupon was for a free Flashcard or a USB thingy. Anyhow, the Microcenter has replaced the CompUSA that was in Rockville. I won't be able to make it down until our meetup on Saturday, but I'd love to hear how it looks...how the trade-ins there were, etc.

Does anyone have interest in buying or trading for an original 1.5 FW PSP? I've got a 512 meg card for it too. I'll bring it with for the meetup. I'm thinking $120 for the PSP, battery, charger, leather case and mem card. PSP is very much like new, and was hardly used since I got it at launch.

I'm going to be fashionably late due to work and will be coming down from Baltimore area.

Which area of D&B do you guys hang out at and how can I identify CAGers?

*Green wrist bands?*

We usually sit up front at the long bar table, near the entrance that leads you out into the mall. All in all, you won't have trouble finding us though. We all don't look like stereotypical gamer-nerds, but the conversation will definitely be. Just look for the group that is having the most fun, and join them.

Checked it out today.

Place looks nice. Game section is kinda small, but this is the only Microcenter I've ever been to so I don't know how it compares.

They aren't accepting trade ins right now. The manager said they'll prob starting taking them in November, unfortunately after the current trade in deal ends.:cry:

That sucks thebob. I'll probably be there, but I might go to the Caps or Terps game.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.
