2nd Year Anniversary Celebration: Dinner & Galloping Ghost!!!

Hello fellow gamers, hardcore and casual! We will be celebrating the Chicago Video Gamers Club 2nd anniversary by having a fellowship dinner at Tony's Family Restaurant diner, and then playing games at Galloping Ghost, which has OVER 400 arcades, old and new! This was one of our first meetups, and it was an amazing experience at one of the biggest arcades in the U.S.! Also... there will be cake, and it is not a lie! (unoriginal joke) The Agenda:

1. Dinner @ Tony's Diner 5:00pm (Located directly across the street from Galloping Ghost. Cost: Cheap but good diner food about $10 depending on what you get. Just a reminder to bring cash to pay for dinner since they probably won't split the check.

2. Galloping Ghost after dinner (around 6:30-7:00 depending on dinner time) - Cost: $15 but it's ALL YOU CAN PLAY. Closes at 2 AM. http://gallopingghostarcade.com/

Please let us know in the comments section if you will be attending dinner or not, so we can get an accurate headcount to reserve tables. Bring you friends for an epic fun time! We look forward to seeing you there!

    Wish I had known the rest of the members there just said hey to the organizers as it was a pretty busy Saturday night. Saddened that pinball was not open though =(

      from what I hear they are renovating that place next door for extra space so they can put in more arcades. I say to hell with that put a café in there instead so people have a chance to hang out and talk when they're not busy gaming.

      I doubt they will do that and any private space costs money. Last time they had the private rooms we looked at getting them and it would cost $25 a person and $100 for whoever was going to set it up. We don't make enough in dues to cover that or any private spaces, nor do we get enough confirmed RSVPs to justify it.

    Is it too late for me to sign up to dinner?

    April 11, 2014

  • Amanda

    I am most likely going. My friends are coming along for his birthday, so I'm trying to find out if anyone is coming for dinner. Looks like they have about 10+ people. I'm seeing if they are going to have dinner with us or not.
