    Hey Chicago people!

    I was thinking about organizing a little FIXED GEAR FORUM get together on the 23rd of Aug for the showing of Star Wars in Grant Park.

    Anyone in for meeting up?

    It starts around 8:30 but I'm going to scout out a spot around 6:15.

    We can trade Chewy figurines, read our soiled Star Wars comix & comsume copious amounts of booze.

    Talking TO the screen will be totally permitted as will reciting line by line.

    Let me know...

    Go riding after you see the movie and get liquored up. It's more fun that way

    Ya, we can go to a bar afterwards and reenact the Cantina scene.
    If I ever get a place with a basement, I'm going to find the Star Wars arcade game.

    Night of the hunter is tonight. Thinking about going dressed as Rev. Powell to snarl at children with reckless abandon and bourbon breath.

    They used to have that one at the Rainbow Roller Rink.

    It was the one where you were in the X-Wing trying to blow up the Death Star. Great game. I need to buy one.

    I just saw one on eBay for $3k.

    Then another sold BIN for $1600.

    That thing must be heavy....

    All I need is a bungalo in the belt and a basement full of old arcade games...

    That would be sweet! Star Wars, Track & Field, USA vs. Russia bubble hockey.....
    but you'd better upgrade the electricity in the bungalow. My brother-in-law had to get rid
    of his Tron game. Couldn't play it without blowing a fuse .

    For arcade games I knew some people that bought from these guys:

    They have a ton of games and they even have original Pong uprights:
