It's like you're in witness protection.

I have enough trouble with penny guides, plus I have a lot of stuff, so I don't want to get robbed by a lurker. The "bragging rights" threads only work if people can't find you! ;)

Tell me about it. The Simpsons Game really wrecks your arms/hands.


We should have warmed up before hitting that game right when we got there.

Had a great time meeting everyone and definitely got 10-bucks of gaming in.

I didn't know about that MvsC3 thing. Thanks for posting. I may have to go check that out. I know a friend of mine will die to hear this.

(Hadn't seen this posted yet, so figured I'd share! :))

I saw this in an online Sunday ad supplement off their website:

http://trus.imageg.n...-niles-cpns.pdf

The $5 off $25 coupon is at the top of that PDF. It's good between 9/17-10/1 at the Niles store only.

Enjoy!

Hmm, does anyone know if the Toys 'R Us on Western and Belmont has the 4th out of 5 Halo: Reach collectible card? I was there last week, but they didn't have it, only the 3rd and 5th collectible cards...

OT: So I randomly have an early dinner tonite at Bubba Gump (never again) at Navy Pier and then head over to the Sox game (never...not anytime again soon) and the same MILF that was sitting across from us at dinner is in the next section over, several rows ahead. And they were Tigers fans. Chicago can feel like a small town at times.

http://www.groupon.c...network-chicago


Was gonna post about this myself. Some rules:

# Expires in 1 year
# Must activate by 9/22/11; must use w/in 3 mos. after activation. Limit 1 per person, may buy 5 additional as gifts. May use over multiple visits; may be used by multiple persons. Not valid with other offers.

I've passed by the Belmont, Western, & Clybourn location many, many times but never knew what it was. Anyone know if there's easy/cheap parking around there? Looks like the walk-in rate is $5 per hour and goes up from there, but it could be a North Side option for future CAG meet-ups (without requiring a CAG's place for in-person console gaming and Rock Band "studios").

Anyone else wanna buy in?

Edit: Looks like there's street parking as well as a parking lot.

Mapquest suggests I take the I90/I94. It'll probably be full of traffic at around 5pm right?
