I could go, it's not that far as Harlem's only a block away.... but whenever I'm ditching someone I tell them to meet me at Baker's Square... I don't trust this. (Not even joking, thegamer4787 can confirm this)

6 or 7 is still quite a few at any sit-down restaurant; any more might make it difficult to get a table (or two). I'm still not sure what my plans are (I might have some other dinner obligations tonight), but I'll give ryosnk a call by 7:00 or 7:30 to let him know what's up. (PM him for his number if you need it.)

Still planning on going. Sounds like I might have the longest drive (coming from west suburbs), so if we're gonna cancel it please post as soon as possible (ideally by like 5:15 latest).

Hey...just wondering, where are you in the west burbs? I'm southwest so I was just curious how close you were to me. I can't go tonight cause I have to watch my son, but it would have been cool to meet some of you guys.

Glad the meet went well for everyone.. hopefully work won't get in the way for me next time.

On another Chicago note... the CompUSA in Skokie (Next to the Crown Village 18) has B1G1 on what looks like all video games but it might be YMMV. On each aisle were signs stating it but not specifically for a system... just a general Buy 1 get 1 sign. I only used it for some GBA titles and had no problems but didn't ask if it was everything.

I'll check again tomorrow to see what's what and post more info.


*Edit*

The B1G1 deal is just for all Gamecube and GBA titles along with the 'Manager's Special' clearance rack which includes all systems.

Not sure if anyone is interested but I've got a ton of old gaming mag's from last 4 years that I'm tossing soon - finally overcoming my packrat instincts.

Offhand there's 1-24 of Official Xbox Magazine, along with a ton of EGM, Gamepro, Game Informer, GMR, XBN, Nintendo Power and others- all dating from roughly launch of Xbox to present. I'd guess well over 100 total. If any Chicago area CAG want's them for free, let me know by this weekend when I'll finish up spring cleaning.

The Disc Replay that is right next to Best Buy in Village Crossing usually has a decent selection of used games. They give cash for trade ins and that is why so many people sell back over there. There is also another Disc Replay in Harwood Heights, right next to the Gamestop on Harlem and Lawrence. Lots of good deals if you get lucky.


Theres a disc replay by me in orland, thats a great store all there prices are mixed up my brother got ghost recon2 for 17.99 instead of the other ones that said 34.99.

I neglected to mention this before, but I received a couple Bakers Square coupons in the mail a week ago or so. One is for $4 off the purchase of 2 entrees and 2 beverages (and states a limit of two coupons per guest check, whatever that means), and the other is for $1 off any whole pie. (Other limitations include restrictions on Senior Discounts, the children's menu, and other promotional discounts, of course.) Now I could use the first one for just $2 off each single entree and beverage for myself (that's what the coupon says), but I figure that this could be a nice discount for another possible CAG get-together. Anyone else get these coupons in the mail? They both expire on July 15. Just a thought.
