Okay. So far we have:

Come on, guys. I know there are a least 3 or 4 more CAGs in Chicago...

We should have Cheapy mention it in the CAGcast...

Where in Logan Square? I'd be interested in meeting up for some drinks and/or general gaming discussion/guide trading. There's a nice bar (Dunlay's) right near the monument.


I'm over by Haas park/Fireside bowl. I haven't been over to Dunlay's yet. I'm going to have to get some more games together if this meet up happens. I have a fatty PS2 for sale too if anyone is interested.

any chicago CAGS with a costco membership? the costco on clybourn has wii budget titles, and I'm interested in picking up Sonic and Secret Rings for $10.99 I've got a sam's club membership, so I have no need for a costco one...anyone willing to help me out??


I can help you out. I live in Wicker Park and go to Costco about once a week. I could meet you there. You need the card at check out though, so I'd have to check out with you.

Also can we start a new Chicago thread? This one's kind of deep and it be easier to organize a meetup.

Seconded.

I pm'd Cheapy to ask if they'd mention it in the CAGcast. It may be too late, though. Next meet-up for sure.

I'm one of them, but I have class at that time. Also, I'm not much into trading, just buying and fattening up my backlog...

The only CAGs I've met in person were that one guy who had a blog and worked at a GS in Evanston and some random dude during a simultaneous BB clearance and GS +$$$ trade-in event a few years ago.

Ryo has talked about meeting at the Dave and Buster's in Schaumburg, which I could possibly make, if there's a next time.

Last thing, the Half Price books at Village Crossing in Skokie is a nifty place to find older games and guides for modest prices.

Looks like a new comic shop is gonna open up in the city. On Western Ave south of Milwaukee Ave., just south from the Blue Line. "Challengers Comics + Conversation?" Big red signs in the windows.

I've been to Dunlay's before. Nice bar. I wish I can go to the meet-up. Co-worker's vacations kill me being able to participate.

Don't worry. We'll plan another one this summer. By then, there will more games out for trading!

Does anyone know if Cheapy mentioned it in this week's CAGcast? I haven't listened to it, yet.

What's up, vatos? I like near Elgin (I used to live on Clark & Peterson, and went to Senn High School)

I'll see if I can find something to trade, but if not, I think it'll be cool to hang with you fellas.

Shit, a bunch of CAGs in a bar, I'm there!!!!!!!!

Come on, CHICAGO, shit...come on ILLINOIS! Get down here next Saturday!

As a matter of fact, if anyone's not busy tonight or next friday, I'll be playing some metal guitar with a rap group (www.chicagonetworkconnected.com) at

THE BASSMENT, FRIDAY, MARCH 28th @7pm
1415 n Ashland, Chicago, Illinois, 60612

and
BETTY'S BLUE STAR LOUNGE, FRIDAY, APRIL 4th @ 10:30pm

Later, CAGs


Edit: P.s., yesterday's episode of my Podcast features a lot of Chicago Love, namely talking about the old gang spot/fast food restaurant "Duks." Anyone remember that? Anyways, it's at (www.cyberpunksgaming.com)

Yeah, I remember Duks... right by Senn on Ridge 'n' Clark. I had my first exposure to Punch-Out!! and Pac-Man Jr. there. Gotta love Edgewater... (Hmm, anyone know what was there before Duks?)

But, yeah... the CAG meet-up is a bit too close to a family event I got going on that day, so I'll have to pass. Hope you all have a great time, though.

Just a quick FYI to fellow Chicagoland CAGs. Was at the Target in Lombard today (by Yorktown) and saw The Simpsons Game for the 360 at $24.99 on clearance. Being the good CAG I am (already own it) I left all the copies for other folks to enjoy :)

What would you guys say is a better school for an undergraduate degree, UIC or DePaul?

I just missed the admissions deadline for UIC. Also, DePaul has the tuiton listed as 23,820.00 per year. Does that mean it include Fall and Spring semesters?

Don't forget about the $5 off coupon (you'd probably have to get a little something extra to make the $25 for the coupon, but this is a good deal). Is the game any good?

Count me in, Loan Square is only a few stops from me.
I don't think I'll have much for trading though, but it'd be nice to meet some fellow CAGs and have a few beers.
BTW...anyone know how the beers selection is there?

I'll probably wont bring that much to trade (if anything) but I would like to meet some Chicago area cags and maybe drink a few beer. But I bring some cash to maybe buy some stuff. :)

I'll try to make it to the meet up on Saturday.

Has anyone had any luck finding those $15 copies of Crackdown at any Target? I'm to have to agree with the person that said that city Targets are not the best place to find clearanced items.

Depends. What are you looking to major in? DePaul is definitely a school on the rise, but they're not as prestigious as they like to think they are... at least at this point. Still, I'd take it over UIC based on it's location, rep and facilities. You have to figure out what best meets your needs though.

I agree. People act like going to DePaul is the same as attending an ivy league school. I know about 27-30 people from DePaul I don't like any of them. I think the last one I talked to was upset because her dad gave her his "old" (2006) Lexus rather than buying her a new one. :-({|=
