Aw Yeah Comics is a given, but with limited time, what are the Must Visit places of Nostalgic Geekery that one can hit up in an afternoon if some of us were to jump into a minivan and take a field trip? Help me come up with an itinerary!

With out a doubt Quake Collectibles in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood is a must! Best toy store I've ever been in!

Quake is excellent. I was there a couple of weeks ago and it was worth the trip.

I spoke with Dave at Quake. He will open the store early, just for us. ;-)

Sounds cool, but I have to admit, it will mostly be a sight seeing thing for me as I'm saving my $ for some hopefully major Mego acquisitions this year since the vintage selection is likely to better. Collecting wise, that's my goal for this year's Meet. Though I'll have my comics want list in case there any deals to be had!

Yea Boi! I am really looking forward to it. I am thinking we can go Friday morning, for the people who come in Thursday.
